"How do you contend with the wastebasket stench with all that brown smeared TP?"
Actually, there's very little smell. I spray the wastebasket occasionally with Lysol. Also, if you bunch up the TP before you put it in the basket, it reduces the odor considerably. Finally, whenever I detect an odor, I remove the plastic bag, seal it with a knot, and put it in the larger ship's trash. Then, a short spray of Lysol into the trash, and one into the now empty small wastebasket, and bingo....no odor at all. Fit a new small plastic bag to the small wastebasket, and you're done. Total time: less than one minute, start to finish.
