We have this stainless steel 13-gallon touchless trash can that I absolutely love.
(So much so that I got one for 2 different relatives that year for Christmas and I talked my in-laws into buying one as well!)
But I spotted this 16-gallon touchless trash can the other day, and I think it may be even better… because it’s got 2 bins!
The 2 separate buckets could be used for:
- sorting 2 types of recyclables (paper vs plastic), or
- for using one side as a standard garbage can and the other side for recycling.
I particularly like:
- the size (two 8-gallon buckets)
- the motion-sensor capabilities (no touch!)
- the fact that you can make it a manual-opening lid if you so choose (say, if your dog likes to get into the trash can or something)
I think this stainless steel touchless trash can ranks pretty high in terms of hip and cool gadgets.
It would make a great addition for a kitchen — especially if you already have stainless steel appliances. It’s definitely on my list!
I like to help people find unique ways to do things that will save time & money — so I write about "outside the box" Household Tips and Life Hacks that most wouldn't think of. I'm super-organized. And I LOVE to clean! I even enjoy doing laundry (but not ironing). I’m also a lifelong dog owner — so I often share my favorite tips for living with dogs inside your home (like smart home design choices and dog-friendly cleaning & decorating ideas). Career-wise, I've been sharing my best ideas with others by blogging full-time since 1998 (the same year that Google started… and before the days of Facebook and YouTube). Prior to that, I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I'm truly passionate about instead. For example, I've worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV. When I’m not cleaning, organizing, decorating, or fixing something… you'll find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
