      Does the job of disguises nappy smells

      As I have a baby and a toddler, nappy bags are definitely essential in my household! I have tried many different brands but I have now settled on Tescos own brand. The design of the packaging has slightly changed from the above picture, the bag is still white but the writing is now pale green. You can either purchase a pack of 100 for 12p or a pack of 300 for 35p. Outstanding value!!

      To open the packet, there is a small perforated circle at the top of the pack that you just pull off to leave a small section of the bags inside exposed. The nappy bags are folded up in half inside. They are quite easy to get out one at a time though on occasion I have pulled out a handful by accident and then just had to stuff them back in. I think the design of this could be better in aid to get just one at a time. I would suggest opening the bag before attempting to change the nappy as they are quite difficult to open one handed (like most bags, they require some finger licking and rubbing together!)

      They are a very pale green in colour and have a nice "baby" fragrance to them. I would compare it to a talc like smell. They are quite thin however, as in they are translucent enough to see the nappy through it therefore I tend to use 2 or 3 at a time for dirty nappies, 1 would suffice for a wet nappy though, but this still works out fantastic value for money! They have handles that you can just tie into a knot once you have placed your nappy inside. They can then be put straight into the outside bin. I find as long as I use at least 3 bags for a dirty nappy, the smells are disguised pretty well.

      I always add a pack to my weekly shop now as I would be lost if I ran out and definitely would not be without them now. Much better than using a nappy disposal system.

      Good value nappy sacks

      There isn't a lot you can write about nappy bags. I do buy these from time to time for those horrid nappies by little darling can produce, it helps to mask the smell and more hygienic to put in the rubbish bin.

      The packaging for these nappy bags has been updated from the file picture above, it has changed to the 'Tesco Everyday Value' range and is accompanied by baby themed images in two shades of green. The pack states 300 bags are inside. It lists directions for use on the back, and warnings such as not leaving within reach of a young children, babies and pets due to a risk of suffocation. Also these are not to be used for carrying food, the bags are fragranced and they are not suitable to be flushed down the toilet.

      The bags are a pale turquoise colour and are approximately 290mm x 310mm. They are made from polythene and are lightly fragranced. They are easy to pull out if the bag. I tend to put my hand inside the bag to scoop up the offending nappy and then tie the handles together before disposing. This then ensures all the mess is kept inside.

      I can't remember the exact price I paid for this pack. I am sure it was around £1. I haven't seen it in my local store in the last few weeks so I do hope Tesco hasn't discontinued these.

      I would recommend these, thin but strong nappy bags which help mask horrible smells!

      Thanks fir reading.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Great value bags and handy for a 1001 uses

      =Tesco Value Range - Nappy Disposal Bags=

      My daughter has grown out of the nappy stage many years ago, but along with baby wipes, the nappy disposal bags are products we carried on using in additional ways.

      =Pack Size=
      The pack is a bag of 300 nappy sacks, an they measure 28cm x 31cm. They are priced at 60p

      =1st Use - Dog Poop Bags=
      I have a beautiful and loved Spaniel, who has his own toilet needs, we did try proper doggie poop bags, but they were working out expensive, at £2 for bag of 50. Not that he goes through that many in a week, but we like to have some in both cars, so for days out and holidays, we have some to hand.

      They do the job of poop collection, we just turn the bag over our hands, collect the doings, know the bag and dispose of safely. Touch wood we have had no incidents with them.

      =2nd Use - Bathroom Bin=
      In the bathroom we have a little pedal style bin, and these nappy sacks fit perfectly in there, they are lightly fragranced so when you lift the bin lid you get a sweet almost floral smell, but this is a mild smell.

      They come into their own when it is "time of the month", as the products don't get flushed, I wrap the old in the new wrapper, pop into the bin and next morning change the bag.

      =The Packaging=
      This is a Tesco Value product, and is available only from Tesco, either online or from the store.

      When you open the outer wrapping, the nappy sacks pop up ready for use, and the next one is ready when you pull your one out.

      =Would I recommend=
      I would highly recommend these nappy sacks, they are cost effective, have a nice pleasant fragrance and work well for us. I will say if the dog has had a good empty we double bag just to be on the safe side as there are literally about 2 doggie disposal bins within a 5 mile walk, so usually we bring it home with us.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        great value for money

        These nappy bags have been a god send to our family. we bought them when my older son was in nappies and thought they'd be flimsy and smell horrible. I was wrong.
        They are as good as more expensive nappy bags, they smell the same and feel the same, as well as doing the same job.
        The bags are strong enough to not fall apart as soon as you touch them, and the tie handles are very useful for making sure the nappies and wipes stay inside and don't escape all over your bin. we also use these as dog pooper scoopers so its very important that they are strong enough to not tear and fall apart. luckily so far (touch wood) I have never had one tear while doing this job. they are handy to keep in pockets for every occasion; simply scoop and tie and the carried (almost) smell free until you find your nearest bin. I find using 2-3 bags will keep 99% of the smells at bay when I have to carry for a while, though this isn't necessary if putting straight in a bin.


        The scent also manages to keep the bad smells away. I also use these for disposing of "lady products" in a hygienic way, they help to keep the bathroom bin smelling ok too.

        At the price these nappy bags are they are great value for money and we will be buying these again in future.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Cheap and easy to use nappy bags

        We mainly use our Sangenic nappy disposal tub to get rid of our twins nappies but when we are out and about the trusty old nappy sack is what we use for dirty nappies.

        Packaging
        The packaging is very simple but is now more attractive than the dooyoo picture above due to rebranding to Everyday Value. A perforated circle at the top of the plastic bag is easily removed to give you access to the nappy bags inside.
        The back of the bag tells you that these bags shouldn't be flushed down the toilet but put in a bin instead.

        The nappy bags
        Each pack contains 300 bags, you used to be able to get them in packs of 100 as well but these appear to no longer be available which is a shame as they were handy for popping in the changing bag. A new pack of 300 is a bit bulky for this so I tend to just remove a few to keep in my bag.
        The sacks are now slightly bigger than before but not so that you'd notice if it wasn't printed in large letters on the front of the packet. They are large enough to easily fit a nappy in along with any wipes that I've used. The handles are a decent length which you can easily tie together, I do a double knot to ensure that they stay shut and keep block out any smells as much as possible.
        The nappy sacks are fragranced and smell quite pleasant but they don't contain the smells from dirty nappies like the wrapper in my disposal tub does which is why I keep using that rather than the cheaper option of these nappy bags.

        Price and availability
        These nappy bags are available from Tesco online and in their stores. A pack of 300 only costs 35p so you can't complain about the price.

        Would I recommend?
        Yes, these nappy bags are great for disposing of nappies and only cost pennies.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Useful bags for nappies AND other things.

          I'm reviewing Tesco Value range nappy disposal bags.
          They come in packs of 300.
          They measure 285 x 310(per bag) and my pack looks slightly different from the one depicted above, so I presume they've updated packaging.

          First off,the only babies in our home at present are two toddlers I child-mind and thankfully both are beyond needing nappies.

          So then, ***WHY***

          As dog poop bags. We have a rescue dog called Kizzy and during her first few months with us getting her diet right and getting her 'settled' (she was VERY nervous) was a bit of a chore to say the least . Before choosing a dog we had made an over-enthusiastic trip to PETS AT HOME to stock up on doggy needs, and poop bags were included on the list . At £2+ for 50 they weren't TOO expensive,but we hadn't considered how many we'd need and PETS AT HOME is a bit of a distance from us, so we'd need to stock up with more than one pack on each shop there. £5-£10 per trip on poop bags is ridiculous and budget stretching on our limited funds.
          Then I spotted nappy bags in tesco for 60p for 300 and thought "BINGO !"......and we've been using them ever since.


          ***USING***

          The pack is very basic,you just open it up and they dispense like tissues...pull one out and the next one is ready for being pulled out next time. When walking kizzy I tend to keep three or four of these in my pockets ready for use,but rarely need more than one as she is a small and a 'one-poop per trip' dog most of the time, luckily. When needed to collect poop I pull a bag over my hand ,collect the poop and then pull the rest of the bag down over my hand ,so the bag is inside out and the poop is contained . You can tie the handles at the top, but I usually tie the whole bag in a knot near the top as there is never a massive amount in there, so there is lots of room for a firm knot to be tied.
          The bags are lightly fragranced if that is important to you. We are fortunate because we have Dog Poop bins on our usual walk route,so they never get brought home to our bin anyway. It is a pleasant fragrance too (the bags,not the poop), not clinical, more like talcum powder.


          ***MY OPINION***

          These are great and I'm so glad I found them because they have saved us money and will continue to. They DO get used for other bits and bobs around the house as well and really are quite useful for lots of things as you can imagine,especially now with the carrier bag tax in place in some areas which has massively reduced the number spare bags lying round in drawers etc in our home for using. Definitely not suitable for groceries though....far too thin and perfumed.
          Yes, the PETS AT HOME ones are stronger and are dark so you can't see the contents ,but in reality if you are prepared to pick up poop then I hardly think seeing it being swung round safely contained in a bag will traumatise you.

          While I would recommend them ,I would say NOT for large dog poops. The bags are quite thin and might not cope. You could try using them doubled up though, because I've seen other dog walkers do that. Worth a try, and at 60p a pk you can't go wrong really.



          I hope this was useful and thank you for reading~~~Myloh.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A super value product

            We used to use a nappy dispenser bin to get rid of my daughter's dirty nappies but when she moved onto eating solids, her nappies changed (for the worse!) and I didn't like the idea of those being in the nappy bin festering away until it was emptied. I tried a few types of nappy sacks but have since stuck to using Tesco's everyday value nappy sacks for her used nappies, just because that's where we normally shop and they cost an amazing 35p for 300!

            I feel that they are incredible value, I find one bag lasts up to two months and that's including sometimes double bagging the exceptionally bad nappies! The bags come packaged in a small white plastic wrapper that I just rip open at the top, although there are small perforated dots to rip along to help open at the right place. The bags are folded up compactly within the packaging. They are not so tight that makes it difficult to remove one bag at a time, at the most I find that two come out when I go to use one but sometimes that's because I'm in a rush to bag a smelly nappy and I grab at the pack quickly! Even then though, it's easy to pop the unused one back into the wrapper.

            I've used other brands of nappy bags too (which have usually cost more for a smaller number of bags) and these Tesco value ones are thinner than most and feel smoother to the touch, but they definitely still do the job just as well, in fact I would say they are the best I've used. Even though I think they feel thinner than others, they are strong and hold a full nappy and 3 or 4 wipes very easily. They also have two handles that are long enough to tie into a double knot without getting close to the nappy.

            The bags are scented - I've found in the past sometimes the scent isn't noticeable but with these the scent is quite strong and helps to mask most smells. I find that I need to double bag the worst nappies and even then there's sometimes still a little smell lurking but to be fair, I don't think any nappy sacks would be able to cope with the really bad nappies either! For a regular dirty nappy, the scent is enough so that it usually just overpowers the staunch.

            I don't have a dog so I've never tried, but I assume these would be also quite handy to help scoop their poop up to bin if they were double bagged - I know the bags specifically for that job are usually thicker than these.

            I would definitely recommend these nappy bags, they are such a good buy and for 35p they're worth a go. I rate them the full five stars as I'll be using them until we're onto toilet training!

            Thanks for reading :o)

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Helps keep the stinks at bay

            I currently have one child who is still in nappies. Using cloth nappies on either of my children didnt even cross my mind-I just knew it wasnt for me. I needed something simple,easy and disposable, hence nappies from Pampers,Huggies etc that comes to the rescue!

            Lets me be honest,anyone thats had to change a baby/toddlers nappy,its rarely a plesant experience. It also isnt very plesant in the areas/rooms where you have to change the child and then dispose of the incriminating evidence. Even with Child number 2, I still cant believe the smell and mess that can come out of these mylittle creature!

            Im not going to spend all day reviewing this product as it doesnt take much explanation but here we go:



            Tesco Value Nappy Bags-what are they for and how do you use them?

            Helps to contain and dispose of soiled disposable nappies safely, cleanly and easily. They are lightly fragranced so helps ( but doenst take away ) minimise the distinct odours that can be experienced from dirty nappies. Simply change baby, take off soiled nappy, make sure nappy is sealed or rolled up and pop into the bag.The bag has two ties which you simply tie together which keeps it all in and dispose. Dont forget that the wipes, cotton wool used can be thrown in as well.

            Another use for them, this is one for the girlies, is I tend to use them to put my towels, tampons in after use. Does the same job, keeps it all safe, secure, hygenic and makes it easy to place in the bin.



            What do I think of this product?

            Its a no brainer. You get 300 sacks in it per pack which lasts a long while. St a cost of 35p I can find that change underneath my sofa, so not an amount I would sniff at! The bags are quite durable, easy to use, completely portable as they take up no room what so ever and to be frank at times a lifesaver!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A cheap and cheerful little bag, very useful, but not the most sturdy nappy sack out there.

            Now only 12p for a pack of 100! (at time of review) The new and improved Tesco value range seems to have had a lot of time and thought put into it and many of the products which I have tried recently are far superior and quite often cheaper than before.
            This product actually has not changed much in my opinion and while they are good, they are only good value for money, i.e. 12p worth.

            As a doting Aunt, rather than a Mummy, I have changed a few nappies in my time and have always used nappy sacks as they are pleasant smelling and can keep in any unwanted mess. Although I do not have babies of my own I always have a pack of nappy sacks in the house as they are so very useful for so much more:
            -All the ladies out there will know there are certain times when you may need to dispose of something not so pleasant and these handy little bags are great for those times, just to keep everything all wrapped up.
            -My 'baby' is my Collie called Cora and the darling that she is leaves me lots of presents on the lawn and when we go out for walkies and I have found that nappy sacks are the cheapest and most effective way of cleaning these up.
            -I always have at least one of these in my handbag or pocket at all times as they come in so very useful, for carrying things, for wrapping things up(e.g. the other day my necklace broke and I managed to find all the beads and popped them into a spare little bag I had rather than them rolling about in the abyss I call my handbag), for tying to things, the possibilities are endless.

            While these are so very handy in many a tight spot, the actual quality of these particular brand are not tip top.

            The scent is pleasing, if a little clinical, and strong enough to mask most icky smells.

            The bags themselves are a little thin, which for their original use is fine as you just bung the nappy in, tie the handles and done, but as 'doggy bags' they are not so good. The almost see-through plastic leaves little to be desired, and you have to be careful if you have long nails not to put your finger right through.
            Also they are not a big as other brands and the handles are not as long making it a little more difficult to seal the 'package' properly.

            Overall, a cheap and cheerful little bag, very useful, but not the most sturdy nappy sack out there.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            recommend given them a try

            Thankfully for me we are past the stage of needing nappy bags for disposing of nappies always a joyful stage in motherhood! But in our household they still remain on the shopping list but for the use of disposing of our dogs poo instead! When we first got our dog eight months ago it was no brainer to try these bags as we already had them in for our son's nappies. We haven't brought any other type of bags since.


            Tesco Value nappy bags are fragranced bags and come in a pack of 300 at our local store. They come in the usually value style packaging but they are nappy bags it doesn't really matter to me. At the top of the packet is a small piece you can carefully pull off leaving a nice small hole to remove the bags when needed. I find this especially handy as you don't then end up with lots of lose bags. The only thing I do find a little annoying is you never seem to be able to remove just one bag from the packaging you can bet on you always end up with a few rather than one. But then I find this a problem with any type of bag for this use.


            The bags themselves are a decent size to fit a full nappy in or to use for collecting your dogs poo up. Even though they are fairly thin I always find them to be robust. In the past I have tried Morrisons own nappy bags and found them too flimsy for using as a dog poo bags. Overall I would say a big thumbs up for both uses. The only down side to them is they are see through which as you can imagine isn't the nicest thing when you're on a walk with your dog and the nearest bin is a little way away but my advice to that is don't look! The fragrance of the bag isn't too strong so if you're carrying them in your nappy bag they don't leave a strong perfumed odour in your bag. As they aren't that strong in fragrance they don't hide the smell of poo too well put I'm not too sure I have come across any similar style bags that do really.


            As well as using these nappy bags to dispose of nappies and dog poo they have come in handy many other times. As an owner of a dog I seem to find these bags everywhere and I mean everywhere. There in my car, in most items of my clothing, hand bags and every room of the house! So they are always about when you might need them. I found them handy when potty training my youngest son for carrying wet pants and trousers in when he unfortunately had one of those accidents! Also my boys love to collect stones in them whilst on the beach.


            The great thing about these bags is a packet of them seems to last ages and at thirty five pence for 300 you really can't go wrong. They are also available in some stores in packs of 100 for twelve pence.
            I would really say whatever your use for them they really are worth a try at that price.

            Disadvantages

            so cheap and so good

            Once having a baby you realise that you need something to put the poo filled nappies in before they go in the bin as otherwise your left with an awful stench throughout your house! But at the same time I resented having to spend money on something I was ultimately throwing away! But when I found the Tesco nappy sacks at only 35p for 300 I was so pleased, I didn't feel as though I was just wasting my money.

            The nappy bags can be easily pulled out of the hold of the plastic packaging and was glad to find that only one at a time came out rather then a clump of them.

            The bags are a decent size and can fit two nappies in at a squeeze so the one easily fits in. They have nice long handles which make it easy to tie in a knot to keep the sink in.

            The bags are also fragranced and have a nice floral smell to them. It is quite a strong smell and hides the smelly nappies brilliantly!

            I would recommend these to all who have children in nappies!

            I'd recommend them, and will buy them again!

            * INFO - WHY DID I BUY? *

            I have bought nappy sacks and nappy bags countless times over the years, as I find them a handy item to keep around the home. The amount of times I have purchased these items has increased greatly since the birth of my young nephew and my friend's baby daughter however, as they are both regular visitors to my home and so I often have to dispose of their dirty nappies in a hygienic manner.


            * PRODUCT DETAILS - TESCO VALUE NAPPY BAGS *

            It had been quite some time since I had purchased the small package of Nappy Bags from the well known Tesco Value range, mainly because I choose to buy my cosmetics and toiletries from other supermarkets and drugstores, which is where I will usually buy my nappy bags too.

            I was shopping in a local branch of Tesco's supermarket recently however, and decided to try out their Value-branded Nappy Bags again, paying only 12 pence for the small pack, which contains 100 bags. I thought this price offered an excellent value for money price, even when compared to other 'budget' branded bags such as Boots and Superdrug.

            The packaging is very simplistic and has a very basic look to it as you would expect, given this is the image of all of the products in the Tesco Value range, which all have a very 'uninspiring' and basic look to them. As I only ever buy cheaply-priced nappy bags however, this is something that I am very used to, and given the fantastic price of the product, the uninspiring packaging is not necessarily something that would make me 'mark down' a product in the overall score. Similarly, the drab packaging is not something that would deter me from repurchasing a product that I liked. It may be worth noting that the packaging has had a bit of a small 'facelift' in recent times and it no longer looks like the image provided by Dooyoo on the review page. Whilst the red and blue 'Value' logo is still emblazoned across the plastic package, there is now an image of a small baby on the front of the bag which does go some way to providing a slightly less 'clinical' look than past times.

            Each of the nappy bags is approx 285mm x 310mm in size, including the handles. I find that this size is pretty standard, and is certainly on a par with most other brands of budget nappy bags that I buy regularly.


            * MY EXPERIENCE *

            The small bags are fragranced which, again, is common practice with all similar products that I buy regularly, and I find that the smell used on the Tesco bags is pretty similar to all other brands that I buy regularly, being a sort of talcum-like smell. Even though I don't particularly like the particular scents and aromas that are carried on the thin polythene bags, the scent does go some way to helping avoid a build up of nasty smells in the bin or waste container and I think that the light, powdery fragrance carried on the bags does help to give the impression of 'freshening up' the bin into which you have disposed of your soiled nappy. I wouldn't go so far as to say that the fragrance on the bags completely covers or 'masks' the used-nappy smell altogether, but I find that every little helps in these situations!

            The bags are made of a very light polythene or plastic, and I find this is surprisingly robust. I haven't experienced any problems with the bags splitting or bursting as they are being used, which is something I have found can often be the case with 'budget-branded' sacks, so this was a welcome discovery for me. I also think that the handles on the bags are of a long enough length to allow the bag to be tied up hygienically and easily - another plus point if your bag is containing a particularly whiffy nappy!

            I have found the Tesco Value nappy bags come in handy for other reasons aside from disposing of soiled nappies however, and in particular I find they are helpful - and hygienic - when it comes to disposing of my pets' waste. I often walk my friend's small dogs and one thing I cannot stand is to witness a dog-owner allowing their pet to foul on a pavement or in a park, then simply walk off and ignore the mess left behind. I personally think this is a highly discourteous act, and would be horrified if one of my beloved "pooch-nephews" made a mess and I was unable to clean it up afterwards. When walking the little guys, I always have my pockets bulging with essentials. This includes some treats (naturally!), as well as their ball, and a generous handful of the Boots nappy bags for any little "droppings" that might appear during our walk. I find it takes all of two seconds to use a couple of the bags over my hand and scoop up the mess. I can then dispose of it in an additional bag and tie up the ends before putting the whole lot in the bin. Easy peasy! There is absolutely NO excuse for dog owners who do not clean up after their pet.

            Similarly, my beloved girl is very much a house cat, and does not get outdoors at all which means she uses her litter trays indoors to do the toilet. I regularly use the Boots nappy bags in the same way as with my doggy-friends, and am able to scoop out her droppings hygienically and quickly. I find the bags offer a fuss-free method of removing - and disposing - of her waste.

            Lastly, I have found that these little bags come in very handy for travelling or going abroad. I find that the little bags offer some peace of mind in terms of my toiletries and assorted lotions and potions. In the past, I have found that one or more of my bottles has leaked during my travels, causing a huge mess over the contents of my toiletry bag, so I tend to use the little nappy bags to individually 'wrap' the bottles and jars and thus cut out any risk of damage to the rest of my toiletries as a result of any spillages. I have found this to be a method that really works well for me, and have suffered no spillage-damage since I started this practice.

            It should be noted that the bags are not suitable for food use, nor are they suitable to be flushed down the toilet. As with all plastic bags, they should be kept away from babies and children to avoid risk of suffocation.

            All in all, I have been very impressed with the Tesco Value Nappy Bags and have already repurchased a second pack recently. I think that for only 12 pence, they have met my household's needs perfectly, coping well with a variety of messes and droppings without splitting or bursting open. Dealing with heavier items such as soiled nappies too has been without incident, and I have nothing negative to report about them at all. I find that they are a must-have item to allow me to properly care for all the gorgeous babies in my life - whether animal or human!!!

            As @ June 2012, the Tesco Value Nappy Bags can be bought in two different sizes online at www.tesco.com, these are 100 bags = 12 pence and 300 bags = 35 pence, however I have only ever seen the smaller pack on sale within my local store.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Very cheap product which works well.

              As the owner of a spaniel who seems to go to the toilet a LOT I am always on the lookout for cheap nappy sacks which I can use to pick up after my dog.

              The price of the black standard Dog poo bags in places like Pets at Home is ridiculous, it costs something like £2.00 for 50 bags. This kind of money is outrageous, especially when you get through as many bags as we do! Since we first got our dog we have always used baby nappy sacks for the job, as do most other dog walkers who are watching their pennies.

              The price of these bags is amazing! It only costs 35p for 300 bags. It is crazily cheap and fantastic value for money. The bags come in a very thin plastic packet which is very plain to look at but really, who cares? I'm not buying the product based on its aesthetic qualities. It does have a perforated bit on the pack so that you can keep all the bags in the pack and pull one out at a time but personally we always decant them into something else anyway.

              The bags themselves are really easy to open, there's nothing more frustrating than struggling to open one of these bags or a carrier bag or things like that, but these separate so easily. They are a pale green/turquoise colour of a very thin plastic but are strong enough to hold what it is required to hold. They are more than big enough for the use of picking up after dogs or for their intended use of disposing of a baby's nappy in them. They do have a soft floral scent to them, it's not a smell I would want to be able to smell in my house but it does help to disguise what's inside!

              All in all I think this is a fantastic product for the price. I would prefer them to be black for the use of why we buy them but you can't have everything! I would definitely recommend them.

                highly reccomended

                Nappy sacks are one of those products that you really don't have to spend a lot. I've tried many and found them all to be the same, different colours sometimes but generally I have found the quality and smell to be practically identical no matter where purchased from. This review concentrates on tesco value nappy bags. From memory they are around 40p for 300 of them. I think everyone will agree that's a cracking price. To be honest for something I use to put soiled nappies in, I'm more than happy to buy a value brand.

                We live in an upstairs flat so have to go down a flight of stairs to get to the main bin. Which is locked in a shed. A bit of a hassle to do for every nappy. So we use these nappy sacks to stop the indoor bin getting smelly before we empty it each night. They are the perfect size for fitting a nappy in. They are lightly fragranced to help disguise the smell of a dirty nappy. We have been using these for about 8 months now and we haven't noticed any nasty smells escaping from our indoor bin so I guess they are doing the job we want.

                All in all for 40p for 300 and doing a good job of keeping my home smelling fresh, I have to give these nappy sacks a resounding 5 stars.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                A good quality item - if you arent asthmatic!

                As a busy mother of two daughters - 5 years old and almost 2 years old - I am always looking to get the best quality products for the best price.

                Nappy sacks are something nobody wants to spend a fortune on, so I thought I would give Tesco value nappy sacks a go - at £0.35 for 300 it seemed like a very good value deal!

                These nappy sacks come in plastic packaging which you have to rip open to get into, which is my first bug-bear as the nappy sacks all spill out and it gets messy very quickly. The sacks themselves are blue in colour, whilst still being slightly transparent so you can see what's inside - should you want to!

                My biggest problem however is the smell of these bags! Now I know that due to the probable contents of nappy sacks, you really want some nice little fragrance to take away some other not-so nice little fragrance that might be present - but does it RALLY have to be THAT strong?? My family and I fin the smell of these bags completely overpowering and quite nauseating. My husband is asthmatic and the smell is so strong that he can tell if I have left a pack of them in the room he is in, because they physically make him wheeze!

                The quality of these bags is fine and they serve the purpose they were designed for quite well, but I really wouldn't recommend these if you have any kind of chest condition o asthma! Otherwise, go ahead - they are a great price for something you are ultimately going to put in the bin!
