Fire. Reduce the risk of garbage fire in your home

After washing your garbage cans in the kitchen, sprinkle a good bit of borax around in the garbage can. The borax acts as a fire retardant if a fire should start in the garbage.

If you do not have any borax you can use baking soda (bicarbonate of soda) instead.
