This will only keep the raccoons away from the trash can for several hours. However if you know when the garbage men are coming, you only need an hour or so.
Reapply the bleach as needed. You can use larger amounts when your trash can will be out for a longer period of time—like weekends or holidays where there's a trash-pickup delay.
Raccoons should be repelled by the bleach and leave your garbage alone.
Having an organized closet has always been a must for me. I love a minimalist lifestyle. Everything is organized, easy to find, and I don't have anything I don't really need or want.
