      get some for your changing bag!

      Nappy bags are a must in our household. Newborn baby combined with toddler being potty trained means I always need them at hand. I buy the Asda smartprice nappy bags which are 35p and you get 300 bags. These last ages and I think 300 bags is fantastic for that low price! These nappy bags have obviously been changed over the years as they no longer look like the picture above! Not only do they now have 200 more bags but smart price packaging is now green and not red as shown above.

      On opening the packet the fragrance of the bags is hard to notice, but on closer inspection they are a sweet 'baby smell'. They are not as strong as some other brands we've used but they do cover up any unpleasant nappy smells! They are pale green colour and a decent size, I've found that they will hold two nappies if I need them to. I've never had any problems with the bags ripping either so that's another advantage. My only issue would be the way they are packaged, they are in a plastic bag that has to be ripped open to get to the bags. This would be okay but the bags are sort of folded up inside which means its difficult to take one bag out at a time without the whole lot coming with it! For 35p though I really shouldn't complain, you get what you pay for after all.

      I think for 35p these are the best nappy bags to buy, apart from the packaging I've never had any problems with them, I was worried the bags would fall apart because they are so cheap but I've not found this at all.

      I give these 4 out of 5. Would have been 5 if I could easily get them out one at a time without the rest flying everywhere. I still recommend to any parent- 35p for 300 bags sells itself!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Great Value and useful for many things

      Asda Smart Price Nappy Bags I have to be honest and say I always avoided them, I assumed for the price of 17p they would be thin and just fall apart. But I went into Asda and the usual brand I bought were out of stock. So I purchased these thinking, they would tide me over until the other brand came back into stock.

      So the nappy bags are great, firstly they are not as thin as I thought, infact the quality is as good as the dearer Asda Brands. Secondly I like the fact, the handles are long so they are easier to tie. They don't have a strong smell, like some other basic brands do of cheap pot pourri.

      Due to the fact the pack is huge and extremely cheap, I now find myself not only using them for my children's nappies, but I also use them for storing in my child's bag to carry home dirty items like used bibs, underwear incase of an accident. I use them as dog waste bags when family pets come to stay. Also when I went on my recent holiday to Greece I also used them to dispose of the toilet paper in the waste bins provided.

      Now for the negative points when you go to remove one from the pack, you often get ten and then they are awquard to put back into the pack again. The outer packing is very thin therefore gets ripped, when being stored inside your baby bag.

      They are fab for leaving in the car for travel sick children. My daughter gets awful sickness on long journeys and these bags have often saved us and her being covered in sick. There also useful for disposing of picnic left overs or children's sweetie papers instead of them being in your coat pocket or lunch box.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good for the money

      This is a review of Asda Smartprice Nappy Bags which we received from friends in a hamper of toiletries before our baby was born.

      What are they?
      Nappy bags tend to be something only dog owners and parents of young babies know about! But once you have tried them you will never look back...

      The spectrum of nappy bags
      You can pay what you like for nappy bags, literally. The organic, environmentally friendly ones come with a hefty price tag and the supermarket own brand ones like Asda Smartprice Nappy Bags tend to come with an unbelievably low price tag.

      Price
      I found myself stocking up on these when I found a bag of 300 cost just 35p when the price is rolled back but they can be a bit more expensive at other times. You can buy them in bags of 100 for even less but nappy bags are one of those things that you tend to get through a lot of when you are up to your armpits in dirty nappies all day!

      Description
      The outer bag is white plastic with the green smart price logo on it and has a perforated moon shape that you tear off to get access to the contents. Inside, the bags are a light what I would call surgical green and you can do your best to remove one at a time. The fuller the bag, the more difficult this is, especially when you are looking at 300!

      In use
      I always prepare the nappy bag before taking off the baby's nappy so I have somewhere to place it. Before we got our nappy bin we placed one round a plastic pot to keep it open. The bag will also hold wipes or cotton wool, whatever you are disposing of. Once full, you tie the handles into a knot, and if it's a stinker, I will use a double bag to try and contain the smell.

      My thoughts
      I have had these bags tear on me on occasion and they are a bit flimsy and see through but for the price, you can't really complain. I would like these to be available in different colours just for a bit of variety but then I always loved the colourful tissue boxes as a child mainly because my Mum wouldn't buy them! The bags are handy for nappy disposal but I also use them as mini bins when out and about for baby wipes and tissues and things like dirty bibs so that I know they are either for the bin or wash when I return home and remember to remove them from the bag.

      Final word
      The price is excellent for these nappy sacks and this is one item I don't mind being a bit cheap and cheerful. I have tried all the value brands from the supermarkets and have found them all to be of consistent performance with one brand not being particularly better than another. They are probably all made in the same factory anyway! I am happy to recommend Asda Smartprice Nappy Bags to all and will continue to use them myself in the future.

      Great value nappy bags.

      ~ Asda Smart Price Nappy Bags ~

      I usually buy Tommee Tippee nappy bags simply because I have a little holder for them, but after running out last week I bought a packet of Smart Price Nappy Bags whilst in Asda. The price on the bag was stated at 82p which of course is a bargain price for 300 nappy bags but to make them an even greater bargain they were rolled back to a very cheap 35p! 35p for 300 bags! That makes them a fantastic 0.1p each!

      They come in a little bag that has a tear type opening at the top of the bag, once opened it cannot be resealed. Opening it I took a sniff at the contents and was greeted by a slightly aftershave scent, it definatly isn't floral and did remind me of a cheap aftershave! The bags are very thin and are a pale green in colour. They are of a decent size though and haven't struggled to hold a nappy and wipes. I do tend to double the bags up for a dirty nappy as even though the bin is emptied every night I don't want my kitchen to smell of baby poo!

      They do a great job of keeping in any nasty whiffs and I have to say I am very pleased with this ultra cheap bags.
      The long handles mean that tying them together is very easy so they do cause an air tight seal around the nappy ..... Fab!

      I think they would also be great for dog walkers to poop scoop, at this price they are handy for anything!

      Brilliant!

      N.B. The photo shown above is a rather old photo which shows that the bags previously came in packs of 100, so they are now much better value :)

      Thanks for reading :) x

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Perfect for my small dogs and my budget

        I'm afraid I can't comment on how effective these bags are for disposing of a baby's nappies as the closest things I have to children are my two canine dependents, so this review is about their effectiveness as dog poop bags!

        Picking up after your dog is not the nicest task in the world but its an important part of being a responsible dog owner so its important to always be prepared and carry a supply of bags wherever you and your dogs go. These bags are also available in a pack of 500 which is what I get so that the pack lasts longer, as with two dogs you do get through them pretty quickly!

        The bags are only thin, so you can carry quite a lot in your pockets, even in tight jeans, without them being too bulky. They are strong enough though, I've never had one break or found one with a hole in it, they even survive a spin round the washing machine if you accidentally leave them in your pockets!

        They are just the right size for fitting over your hand like a glove with enough plastic to spare so that you can pick up your dog's poop without risking coming into contact with the offending substance! There are two tie handles so you can carry the bag comfortably to the nearest bin with the smell contained in the plastic. The semi-transparent mint green colour does mean that you can see what you're carrying through the bag, but these are so much cheaper than the specific dog poop bags that are black and opaque that this isn't a big enough problem to make it worth switching.

        I've tried a lot of bags for this purpose over the years but Asda Smartprice are definitely the ones I'll be sticking with from now on.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        An absolute must-have for any parent with small children & there's lots of other uses too!

        In my opinion, nappy bags are a really nifty, handy thing to have in the house. I've got a beautiful new baby and as a result we've been getting through nappy bags (and obviously nappies!) at an astonishing rate, which is why I wanted to find a cheaper alternative to the previous brand that I used which averaged at around a pound for a hundred. I've only recently started shopping at ASDA due to the cheap price of many of their baby necessities and was pleasantly suprised at how cheap their own brand of nappy bags are.

        These nappy bags are priced at a bargainous 35p per pack of 300 which is amazingly cheap and I stocked up on ten packs (£3.50 alltogether - bargain!) as i'm getting through so many at the minute. The bags are described by ASDA as been carefully made to provide the ideal way to dispose of used nappies. The nappy bags come in a simple thick plastic bag which is a square shape. It's white with green branding on it and it reads on the front 'ASDA 300 Smartprice Nappy Bags'. It has a thick green band of colour at the bottom to create the illusion of grass and there's a cute little silhouette of a teddy sat on it which is also green. The packaging is basic and unisex.

        Getting the bag open is easy and I usually cut the top open carefully so that the nappy bags can be kept inside the larger bag to keep them all together. In theory this sounds fine but it is actually quite hard to open the bag without ripping it as it's not made of very durable plastic, so a few bags may stray out. The packaging is also quite ugly but I keep the nappy bags in my bathroom drawers so the packaging can't be seen anyway. The bags themselves are almost transparent and are a light green colour (ASDA's colour scheme) and they're made of very thin plastic. They have two tie handles at the opening of the bag which is handy and the handles are long enough to be double knotted to avoid any smells from leaking out of the bag. The bags are lightly scented and the smell is delicate and actually quite pleasant, the scent reminds me a bit of talcum powder.

        The bags are all folded up inside the packaging so when I go to pull one out a few usually come out with it. The bags are also screwed up so it can be awkward to find the opening of the bag, meaning before I change my daughters nappy I make sure to get the bag ready so that I don't have to juggle between the nappy and the nappy bag. When taking my daughter out to a friends house or a family members house I always make sure I have a handful of nappy bags available and I put them inside pocket of my baby bag so that they're easy to find - as they're so thin and get scrunched up easily it will be hard to find them in a full bag of stuff.

        As any parent will know nappies are quite bulky, especially when full, however this bag can fit one nappy in it (along with numerous baby wipes, cotton wool, tissue etc) easily. It holds the weight of a full nappy and i've not had any issues with the bag ripping or there been any leakages (gross I know!) I don't double bag either so it shows how strong the bags are despite how thin they are. As soon as I have changed my daughter I dispose of the nappy bag by double knotting it, bagging it up in a carrier bag for extra hygiene and then putting it straight in the outside bin.

        The bags can be used for lots of other purposes other than disposing of nappies. For example, they can be used as dog poo bags, althought the fact they're quite see through might put some people off from using the bags for this purpose! They hold about 2 handfuls of poo (lol, gross I know) and carrying the bag is easy due to the handles, I can either tie it to my dogs lead or I can put it around my wrist once it's tied up securely so that I have both hands free. They can also be used to dispose of tampons, period pads or maternity pads and it's a hygienic way to dispose of condoms as well.

        They're also handy for messy bibs, sicky/snotty tissues, etc and save me from finding a bin straight away - if in public I am able to just stick the mess into the bag, tie it up and put it back into my baby bag if there are no bins around and I don't worry about gross smells escaping. If the bags weren't scented they would also make good food bags but the scent obviously stops me from using them for this purpose. The bags overall are fab value for money, and I can not really fault them. They have so many different uses! 5/5 stars.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A really great buy for what I use them for!

          As not being a parent you'd think I'd have no need at all for nappy bags/sacks. Actually you'd be wrong because these little bags are great for a multitude of purposes!

          I use these nappy bags often in replacement of bags to pick up my mates dogs poo as sacks/bags specially bought for this activity can be stupidly overpriced. I use them to pop in used 'feminine' products into as we are not meant to flush the majority of them of course. I even use them to put use cotton wool and the likes into when removing nail polish whilst watching tv in bed. Really these can be used for so many tasks as they are rather robust!

          These nappy bags cost 35p for 300 of them. Yes you read that right 300 bags cost a mere 35p....not exactly going to break the bank these eh lol.

          They come in a white outer square and robust plastic bag and on the top of that we are told that they are Asda Smart Price 300 Nappy Bags. Information on the back of the bag isn't much at all but contact details for Asda are listed. You simply tear a hole to the front of the bag to grab them out.

          The Bags:

          Light green in colour with integrated handles these do have a very subtle sort of powdery floral scent to them. This scent doesn't really mask odours too well though to be honest and I'm pretty sure that they wouldn't hide the smell of a filthy nappy!

          They are quite large though rather thin so I wouldn't put any sharp objects into them for fear of putting a hole in them.

          They are easy to pull out of the bag one at a time and easy to open and although they are not highly fragranced I still find them brilliant!

          They are strong enough for me and my needs, easy to tie up when used and in my view are worth every single penny that they cost!

          Available from Asda and from Asda.com

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Lots of uses

          One of the things for babies that I have only ever used rarely is nappy bags, if we are at home or at families then dirty nappies go straight into an outside bin and I really do not see the point in wasting money on a bag to put a dirty nappy in. If we are out and about then I will take nappy bags with me as I don't think it is fair to put a dirty nappy into a public bin without one.

          I bought these nappy bags at Asda as the name would suggest, when i first starting buying these nearly 5 years ago you could get them in either 100s or 300s but now they only seem to sell them in packs of 300 although at 35p per packet it is hardly an expense. The bags are packaged very simply as with all Asda Smartprice products, the bags come in a thin polythene bag which is white and has an outline of a teddy bear on it in green and the name of the product across in green too.

          I use these bags in two ways as I have two children and two dogs. Obviously once your baby has had a dirty nappy you simply place ther nappy and contents into the turquoise coloured bag which is made of thin polythene material and simply tie the top handles at the top of the bag together to enclose it before placing in the bin. The bags are pretty easy to open and smell a little flowery although not very string and I have found by the time I get through 300 bags the smell has faded a little. The bags are easy to pull out of the packaging and are placed inside in such a way that it is easy to remove one bag at a time without the whole lot coming out.

          Another way I use these bags is for my father who looks after my children to place the clothes into if there is any accidents, obviously the bags aren't big enough to place lots of clothing but if there is a wet or dirty vest I find it easier to have then wrapped inside one of these bags than have to be carried home seperately.

          The third way I use these bags is for dog poo, if we take our dogs for a walk I always make sure I have a number of these bags in my pocket but I also use them at home, my husband is responsible for cleaning up the dog muck and will do it everyday but if my daughter asks to play out the back I will go around and make sure there is no dog muck that has been missed or done since the last clear up and I use these bags to collect it.

          These bags are great at the job they are meant for, they aren't overly strong but then I wouldn't expect a nappy to be overly heavy and so they are adequate for the job. The smell of the bags isn't too bad either which is good when my daughter has a dirty nappy during the night when I will simply pop the nappy into one of these bags and place it on the landing ready for the next morning so that I don't have to go out to the bin in the middle of the night. These bags are certainly worth the money I just wish they would still do them in 100 packs as I don't use too many and the smell fades before they are used.

            Practical and cheap bags to dispose of nappies in from Asda

            As a mum of twins the consumption and disposal of nappies at times seems constant. There have been days when we have gone through 25+ nappies and not only does this challenge the nasal senses it also can hit our bank balance quite hard as we constantly find we need to buy nappies and nappy disposal sacks. As new parents both Mr Lools and I were fooled by the more expensive brands of nappy disposal sacks with nice scents and various claims and initially bought lots of these. We soon realised that we were literally throwing our money away as these sacks all ended up in the same place; the bin. So as a result we started looking for cheaper products and ended up purchasing the Asda Smart Price Nappy Sacks.


            ***Asda Smart Price Nappy Sacks***
            The description of the product is "Smart Price Nappy Bags have been carefully made to provide the ideal way to dispose of used nappies. Simply pop the nappy into the bag together with any cotton wool or wipes used during a nappy more. Once the nappies have been tied together, the fragrance will mask any unpleasant smells."

            The bags are a light green colour with tie handles. The bags are approximately around 15cm high by 10cm across. The bags come in very simple packaging. This is a white thicker plastic bag with the green Asda Smart Price branding on and a silhouette of a teddy bear. To open you need to tear a hole in the outer packaging and the bags will be dispensed. I do find that you need to take care with the outer packaging as it is not the most durable and can rip open meaning you have 300 nappy sacks spilling out!

            As these are Asda branded products from the Smart Price range these are only available from Asda stores and online. I purchased my last pack for 82p for 300 bags which I think is excellent value. However after a quick check of the price before writing the review these nappy sacks are currently being sold for 35p for a pack of 300. At less than 0.1p per bag this is ridiculously cheap and makes these bags a very smart choice for parents, especially those like myself who have more than one child in nappies.


            ***Our Experience***
            Even when at home after a nappy change I tend to seal the nappy up in a nappy sack before I put it in the outside bin to ensure that the bin does not get awfully smelly. This is not really an issue in the winter however during the summer I do find that if I do not do this then the outside bin can really smell when it contains a weeks' worth of nappies from two children! When I am out and about I also use nappy sacks during nappy changes as it is an easy way of keeping all of the dirty wipes and nappies together and the smell can be securely sealed away.

            Once the packaging of the Smart Price Nappy Sacks is opened it is a simple case of pulling a bag out opening it and using it to put your offending items in. As outlined earlier you do need to take care when opening the outer packaging not to create too large of a rip in the bag in order to prevent all of the nappy bags from coming out. Because the bags are quite thin I do find that I often pull out more than one bag, although for me when changing both my sons this is not a major annoyance like it would be to someone that only needed one bag!

            The bags are easy to open and once open you can very easily put the nappy inside. The handles on the sacks are of an average length so it is very easy to tie in a knot to seal the smell inside of the bag. The handles appear thin but I have never yet ripped the handles when tying the bags up. The bags are a light green colour and pretty see through so you can see dirty items within the bag. As a parent I do not find this a massive problem however for those not really accustomed to seeing what can be inside of a baby's nappy this can be quite unpleasant so these nappy sacks do not hide these horrors like many of the thicker darker nappy sack products can do.

            Although I would recommend using one bag per nappy to ensure the bag does not rip from being overfilled and to ensure all of the nasty smells are contained I have used one bag to put two nappies and wipes in. The bag was fully packed but did securely contain to smell that had been created within the nappies.

            I tend to use the nappy sacks for the intended purpose; to dispose of nappies in but the bags have multiple uses. You can use to dispose of animal waste in and also to collect rubbish in. As a mum I think I have become very resourceful and find myself collecting rubbish on days out or placing dirty spoons and food containers in the bags to ensure they do not make a mess in my changing bag. I also find the bags excellent for keeping dirty vests in that may have become soiled and require washing when I get home if I am out and about.

            There have been occasions when the bags have ripped because the polythene is very thin and quite a poor quality. You can't really put sharp items in the bags. I tend not to do so but when I have used to collect rubbish I would probably use two bags together just to ensure sharp corners of objects do not rip open the bags.

            I think my main criticism of the Smart Price Nappy sacks is their claim that they are fragranced. I think the fragrance is only extremely light and it is only a very slightly powdery floral scent that you can only smell if you take a big sniff of the bag when it has not been filled. Compared to more expensive nappy sacks the fragrance of these sacks I virtually non-existent. However once the handles are tied the smells are concealed within the bags effectively and because there isn't a strong scent to the bag attention is not drawn to it.

            On reflection I have never been in a situation where I have had to do an impromptu nappy change and have not had a bin close to hand to dispose of the offending item in therefore have not had to carry a nappy around with me for a long period of time like I thought that I might do before I had children. Most places have bins and even outdoor places like parks have bins dotted around (for dog walkers benefit also). Even on the occasions when I've had to find a bin as there has not been one directly next to my changing area I have never been able to smell the nappy once in the bag and sealed up despite the bags not being heavily fragranced.

            The large pack of 300 is not only very good value it also means I do not run out of these products too quickly. With some brands of nappy sacks I was finding I needed to buy a new pack each week because you got so few sacks within the pack. The 300 bags last me a long time and on average I probably find these last me up to 6 weeks.


            ***Overall***
            I would definitely recommend these nappy sacks to other parents, especially those that have more than one child in nappies and go through a lot of nappy sacks. For 300 bags these are extremely cheap and mean you are not literally throwing your money away.

            The bags are a little thinner and of a poorer quality than some of the more expensive nappy sacks on the market however they rarely rip (even with my long nails) and securely contain offending nappies and wipes until you find a bin. I have even been able to securely seal a bag containing two nappies in on many occasions.

            Asda do state these bags are fragranced which is partially true although the fragrance is a lot lighter than other nappy sacks I have used. Simply by tying the bags handles contains the smell inside of the bag so you do not rely too heavily on the scent to mask the scent. Secondly because the bags are so lightly fragranced it means that they do not actually draw attention to the offending item which I feel some of the very strongly fragranced nappy bags do making the nasty scent worse.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Very versatile, fantastic value.

              I noticed other mums were using these nappy bags so I thought I would give them a go and I really like them.

              They are great value and although they are made of very thin plastic they do the job nicely. After all they are only designed to contain a dirty nappy until you can dispose of it in a bin so they don't need to be heavy duty.

              They have a mild fragrance, just enough to mask the odour of a pongy nappy. I have found with other more strongly scented scented bags that the scent transfers onto everything.

              These nappy bags are also handy when you are out and about for putting wet clothing in. I take my little one swimming every week and I put our wet swimwear in one of these bags to keep everything else dry. They are also handy for containing dirty bibs and half eaten food when we are out. If we are going away I will put anything which might leak (shampoo for example) into one of these bags to prevent disasters. I even use them for cleaning out the cat's litter tray sometimes!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              They go in the bin so why waste money when you don't need to

              I have been using Asda Little Angels nappy bags, however on a recent trip to Asda they had sold out and all that was left on offer were the Asda smart proce option. The packaging is different from the picture above, it is white with green along the bottom and a picture of a teddy bear. Oddly there is also a price of 78p on the front, Asda only charged me 28p for them. This has happened twice in two different stores. Even if they are 78p you get 300 so I think it represents good value.

              As they are smart price the bags are contained in a larger plastic packaging which is not resealable and you have to rip to get the nappy bags out.

              The bags themselves are pale green in colour. I noticed immediately how thick they were. In the past when I have bought cheap nappy bags they have been really thin and instead of getting one out of a packet I ended up getting 4 or 5. These came out of the packet one at a time.

              The bag like others is shaped like a small carrier with handles that you tie together to keep in the smell, you can also put wipes etc in them as they are a decent size.

              These bags had a plesant smell, it wasn't too floraly like others I have found, and it did mask the smell of a stinky poo for the short time that it was in the house. I like to take my nappies straight outside to the bin. ur rubbish only gets collected once a fortnight and I can't say I have noticed any foul odours from the bin even when it is full of stinky nappies so they must do the job.

              I will never waste money on the more expensive little angels bags after using these, they do a great job and I have also found them handy for when I am out and about and my daughter has been sick and I have had to change her clothing, I have bagged it up in one of these to take home for washing and again I didn't notice any nasty sicky smell.

              I would give these 5 out of 5 why pay more for something that goes in the bin!

              I would also recommend these for people with dogs they are also far cheaper than doo poo bags.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                cheap, effective

                Now i know that the title of this review cannot be used for packaging, but these little gems are far more than 'nappy bags'.

                Always handy to have about the hosue, these multi-fuctional items are both cheap and good quality.

                You will find these nappy bags down the baby and toddler aisle of your Asda store and are so named Smart price because they are the budget brand made by Asda. Now i dont know about you, but i begrudge paying a small fortune for something i am going to put straight in the trash?!

                These bags come in 300's and the packaging is a bag itself. The packaging has somewhat differed to what you can see above as the branding has somewhat changed, and you will now find the product in a white bag, with a green teddy bear and the label nappy bags on the front. These bags are a mear 27p would you believe.

                Now, to open the packaging, i pretty much rip the outer bag, but you could do it more easily and ladylike, lol.
                Inside the bags are together and folded in such a way that if you lightly pull the top bag, it will leave the others behind.

                When opening the bag, the smell of a floral arrangement can be found, but i have to say this is a very synthetic smell. To be honest though, when you are putting a stinky nappy inside, anything would smell better if to mask the 'baby pong'.

                I would say that the bag is roughly 20-25cm long and can hold a nappyful and wipes without ripping. There are 2 handles at the top in which i tie together to seal in the offenders.

                Now these wipes are pretty mutli-purpose. If you are doing anything to intracate and need some gloves, by putting your hand inside, you can use these for the job. Not quite up to dying hair or the suchlike, but perfect for clearing up rubbish dropped on the floor for example.

                Having 2 dogs, these bags come in very handy as a manual pooper scooper, and fit into a very small space scrunched up.

                Finally, these make perfect 'car bins'. They are great, almost as imprtant as keeping baby wipes in your glove box, you will also find nappy bags in mine. Perfect for long journies for putting your rubbush in, hooked over your gearstick, although be careful it doesnt hinder your ability to drive properly, lol. I have also used one of these as a sick bag for a poorly little boy that ate too many satsumas at his nans house!!

                All in all, i havent got a bad word to say for the price paid!!
                5/5!!

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  AN EXCELLENT VALUE PRODUCT.

                  Having just had a new puppy, we found as a family we were spending quite a crazy amount of money on doggy poo bags. These bags which you use to scoop up and dispose of your dogs mess are really quite pricey. Last week, I suddenly realised that we were being a bit daft, forking out extra money for special doggy bags. So whilst in Asda I happened apon these smart price nappy sacks in the baby changing isle.

                  I had actually used these bags in the past, when my children were babies. So I knew that they were a very effective product. The price of these nappy bags is quite extrodinary at a staggering 28p for 100.

                  The bags themselves come in a delightful and pleasing shade of green. Also as soon as you pull the bag from the serated hole at the top of the packaging, you can immediatley detect a delicate floral scent which is quite citrusy and certainly masks any unpleasing whiffs.

                  The bags are of an average size. They are certainly big enough to accomodate a nappy and the wipes needed for cleansing. The long tie handles are also very useful. These tie into a knot for secure fastening in order to prevent any spillage.

                  What I liked about these bags, is that they are of a good thickness. They are durable and strong and will not just split or tear. They are really trustworthy. Also the scent is long lasting and therefore prevents embarassment.

                  I also find these nappy sacks are handy for tying to the side of the childrens car seats on a long journey. They can then fill them with sweet wrappers or other rubbish to prevent a mess in the car.

                  Yet again a smart price product has come up trumps. You cannot fault it's quality or price. I am very impressed with this product. For such a small price tag, you would be forgiven for thinking that these bags may tear or be cheap and nasty. But this is not true. They are versatile, strong, and also as far as scent and colour of the bags go, it certainly seems that they have thought long and hard about the customer when supplying these bags. If I could change anything about these bags, I would make them easier to open. The bottom of the bag is sometimes difficult to seperate. (a bit like the plastic bags you put the veg in, in the supermarket)

                  There is one thing for certain. I will not be returning to the expensive doggy dodo bags!!! smartprice nappy bags are not only better value but also a much better quality product.

                    Cheap and does the job.

                    Having to change two little bottoms everyday you can imagine the amount of nappies start to pile up in my bin, and living in a flat I am unable to run every nappy down to the bin after I've changed my children. This is where the Asda smart price nappy sacks come into play. They are a great convenient way to lock in the smell of the dirty nappies and allow you not to worry about stinking out your home.

                    They are priced at 27p for 100. This is excellent value for money. They are small and light enough to have the whole in you babies change bag, rather than just taking a few. They are great for dog owners as well.

                    They bag themselves aren't thin and don't split easily. They are made of a strong durable green thin plastic. They have a nice strong scent that smells similar to theit own branded baby lotion, that you can smell as soon as you open the packet. These will lock in the smell of wee nappies. I would recommend for those extra smelly nappies to double bag them as these bags aren't superman and wont block out the nasty smell on their own.

                    Overall these are a great cheap way to lock in smells weather is children's nappies or the presents dogs leave behind.

                    Why spend loads on something you buy to throw away?

                    I tend to end up buying things in the supermarket for my daughter and her newly required dog, which I don't mind but it does all end up costing me money.

                    She asked me to grab some poo bags, after looking down the pet isle I decided to look in the baby section instead. I'm very glad I did the doggy poo bags were reining from between £2-4 whilst the Asda Smart Price Nappy Bags cost £0.27 pence.

                    Amazed at this price, and for 100 bags no less, I decided to go for the Asda SPNB's.

                    The bags come in a thin white plastic bag themselves and are folded up in half inside. The bags are green and not fragranced. They are really quite thin but are quite durable for picking up dog poo. I can imagine them holding nappies no problem.

                    My only worry is putting my finger through the bag whilst picking up the dogs poo, although it's my daughter's dog and she does most of it and if she doesn't like them, maybe she'll do her own shopping.

                    100 bags last a long time. As for babies and puppies they do go to the toilet a lot but the fact you have 100 bags really does last a while, we've yet to need any more after 8 weeks, although we are getting low now.

                    The bags have two handles with loops for your hands, they are very easy to tie up and are a good size, they can hold quite large nappies and dog poos.

                    I would definitely recommend these for babies or puppies purely because for 37 pence, how can you go wrong, besides you are buying them, to throw them away.
