One person said: “If you do this with your garbage bags, all the vile odors from your garbage will go up around your house. This is not a wise video.”
While another added: “The theory is great, but I can only imagine how bad it would be. Like the smell of dust mixed with the smell of trash coming out of a vacuum cleaner.”
And a third claimed: “That’s right… I don’t recommend doing this because the smell from the trash will get into the house more by the hoover.”
But others couldn’t see the problem and agreed with the mother that the idea was “great”.
Someone posted: “So smart”.
As another agreed, writing: “You’re a genius and after the council refused to give our family of six a big crate, I’m doing this. Thank you!”
