Tesco Value Swing Bin Liners

Advantages: good price
Disadvantages: not the thickest material
I usually just buy black bags for the bins as I really can't be bothered but we got a new bin recently for the kitchen and so black bags are too big. This is why I decided to go out and look for some swing bin liners as of course these are the correct size for this style of bin. I didn't want to be paying too much but I wanted good quality bags that wouldn't rip, so of course I looked at Tesco. I haven't really purchased bin bags from them before but I can't resist a bargain and so I went for the Value range.
The Tesco Value swing bin liners are nothing exciting to look at. They are a roll of white bags and they have a label wrapped around the middle which has the Tesco logo on it and the name of the product. It has nothing much else really on this label apart from the fact that the label is made from recycled paper. The label says that it included 40 bin liners on a roll which is actually not too bad as that is definitely going to last a good amount of time.
SWING BIN LINERS
The bin liners are pretty standard to use, I think the one thing I noticed instantly with these bags is that they come with no handles so when it comes to tying the bag up for the outdoor bin, it can be quite a struggle if the bag is really full. Also, even just in terms of holding the bags if there is no handle on them, it just means you have to try and tie a knot at the top and just hope that there is enough bag to hold without any rubbish poking out of the top.
Not to start on a negative of course as they are not too bad for Value bags. However, a bag is a bag and really I don't care when it comes to household items like this as long as they do their job and with these, I feel they did. Being white for a start is a change and they are just on a roll all folded up and they have a perforated line so that you can tear off each bag. When tearing the bags, be careful as I have lost a few bags due to the bag not ripping evenly and it causing a hole in the bottom which is unusable.
The bags in terms of quality are ok, I have never found them ripping easily when there is any rubbish in them which is good nor have I had them split when taking them out to the bin. The bags also have a big capacity to them so they can hold quite a lot in them before it is time to take them out. I don't really think there is much else to say other than the fact that they do a fine job for household waste but they are not the thickest of plastic so be careful of putting sharper items into these bags.
I recommend these for general bins in the house as they stay on the bin fine and don't fall down if something heavy drops into them. A roll of these bin liners lasts quite a good while, so you don't have to buy another roll until you are down to the last few but I have had this roll for months now. I think it is what you pay for, ok quality but there are a few obvious flaws which I have gone over. If you want a bag to fit your bin ok, then you should try these out but if you want quality then pay a bit more for a thicker material.
If you want to buy yourself a roll of these Value swing bin liners then you can do either at your local Tesco store or online at tesco.com for £1.15 for a roll.
