Advantages: Cheap and ok to use on lightweight none sharp rubbish if you don't go mad!
Disadvantages: They really are thin and fall apart easy so you have to be very careful using them!
When it comes to bin bags I really do get through an awful lot of them. With a cat litter tray to clean for what seems like every day, four hamsters cages to clean out at least weekly and lots of boxes and cans and the likes as me and my mates eat plenty of junk food and drink too much I have loads and loads of rubbish to throw out daily!
Due to this fact I have tried to make savings on the said bin bags which usually has ended up being completely false economy when I come to think about it but getting through at least one large bin bag a day I decided when I spotted these in my local Asda store to give them a go as you get lots for alot less than I was paying out just for 10 of them!
The bin bags come in a large roll and there are 45 of them and they cost me £1.09 which like I say was considerably less that I usually pay for a lot less of them! They came bound in a white and green paper and on them we are told what they are and who they are by, the amount of them is stated and contact details for Asda are given. The label is easy to tear of and dispose of, of course.
These are light sort of black colour and really, really thin plastic. They tear off the roll really easy through them being perforated and are easy to pull gently apart and to put into a standard sized kitchen bin. However they are really, really thin and tear ever so easily and if I put anything sharp into the bin the bin bag tears and falls apart on me. The only real use I have for these is for when I clean my hamster cages out and don't wan't anything too heavy in them. I have to admit I find them rather useful just for bagging up small amounts of things that are not sharp and I tend now to know when I am using these to not overload them and half fill them and usually I get away with it....just!
I wouldn't buy these and use them and take them for granted but if you do want to try them and use them responsibly you can manage with them just don't go mad with them and of course these don't have to pulls or ties to them or anything fancy and again if you tear the bag to create a tie to the top the chances are the whole bag will simply cave in so I leave this action till I get to main disposing bin outside my flat and then do it just in case lol
Only available from Asda stores.
