This is true, but some people find that moving quickly with their hands squishing out air pockets as the Sinbo sucks air isn’t just fast enough and air pockets may occur. That is why the panty hose whether used or new helps expel the trapped air.
OTOH for households where used panty hose are seldom or never found then permit me to offer options number 2 and number 3 which also works and for far less cost than that of a pair of new panty hose.
Number 2 – if you shop at a butcher shop ask the butcher for a free piece of butcher netting which is a finely tied and knotted netting used to compress some roasts.
Number 3 – place the Drybag with the meat inside into a vessel or your sink filled with water. The water pressure will compress out the trapped air and then using a straw or tubing suck the remaining air out and then seal your Drybag with a bread twisty. Dry off the Drybag.
