 I'm looking online for a new kitchen trashcan- i want one the same size as ours or bigger.

I can't find a size on mine- what is the standard? I see the cans online mostly in liters- I understand more in gallons so I'm having to convert it which I hope I'm doing right lol Theres nearly 4 liters in a gallon right? like 3.7 liters to a gallon?

I saw a trashcan that said it was 38liters- which is like 140 gallons?!!! lol im lost.

I think my trashcan is 13 gallons... and I also think that liters are less than gallons so 38 liters wouldn't be 140 gallons...
