The Christmas season is here! I am so looking forward to getting together with family and friends, catching up and celebrating with them. Many of those gatherings will happen right here, in our cozy little home.
I love our house, but truth is, it’s not huge. That’s why I try to keep a close eye (or nose) on our various garbage cans. When the garbage starts to stink, the house starts to stink. And I can always track it down to one of two places — the kitchen, and the bathroom.
We have the change table in the bathroom, so that’s where our diaper can is. And some days, a squirt of air freshener doesn’t even help that!
And then of course, our kitchen garbage can get pretty ripe by the end of the day. I take it out every evening, but even then, sometimes it’s the kind of garbage that makes you want to hold your breath and run as quickly as you can to the outdoor can.
I noticed a difference the minute I pulled one out of the box. These bags are much thicker, stronger, and bigger than what I’ve been using. And they have a really pleasant scent. My daughter and I spent at least 2 full minutes just smelling them … I’ll spare you those pictures too!
Taking out the kitchen garbage is so much less of a chore now. I don’t have to hold my breath, and I’m not afraid that the bag might rip under the weight of the garbage when I lift it out of the can.
I’ve also started using them in the diaper can. We use disposables, and up until now I was bagging each dirty diaper individually to keep the smell contained. A few days after I started using the Glad bags, I ran out of little plastic bags for the dirties. That’s when I really got to put the Glad Odour Guard to the test — and they stood up to the challenge!
It may sound too good to be true, but Glad Odour Guard Kitchen Catchers have made my bathroom smell much more inviting! And not only that, but I’m keeping those little plastic bags out of the landfill.
Just think of the options for the Glad Compostable Odour Shield bags too — summer time composting never smelled so good!
Give them a try, I bet you’ll be impressed. And I’d love to hear your thoughts on how you keep your house smelling fresh!I received free products and compensation in return for this post, but as always, my opinion is my own.
