odor travelling from pull-out trash through peninsula

12 years ago

Our new peninsula has three cabinets in it: one is a trash pull-out and the others are cabinets. Whenever you open any of the cabinets or the drawers above them, you can smell the trash from the trash pull-out. I am pretty worried as it will be a lot hotter and more humid in our kitchen come the warmer months.

I have thought of:

(1) calling our cabinetmaker to scream. (I am not a screamer.)

(2) putting baking soda boxes in the back of all the cabinets and drawers.

(3) trying to find a trash container with a lid that will fit the trash pull-out-- but then we have to deal with the lid somehow.

(4) calling our cabinetmaker to get something retro-fitted to block off the air from the trash compartment from all the drawers and cabinets.

Does anyone have any better ideas?

Also, if you are making plans yourself, bear this problem in mind.
