Asda Smartprice Refuse Sacks
Advantages: Really well priced at around 2p per bag
Disadvantages: Flimsy design means you can't fill them as much as you'd like
What guides you to a bin bag, is it the texture, the look, the ability to hold rubbish securely. Let's be honest with bin bags it is purely about the fact they won't split when you pull them out of your bin and that they are good value.
Asda Smartprice refuse sacks are a good price, i'm not so sure they are good value though, at £1.09 for 45 bags, they are one of the best priced products on the market, but from using our pack regularly (it takes a heck of a long time getting through 45 bin bags), I have to say that I probably won't buy them again.
The reason for my dislike is that they are too thin and if we place something like a chicken leg in the bag, all too often they easily rip, or rip as I try to pull the bag out of the bin. This isn't what I expected as the packaging suggests they have a strengthened base. This might be the case but further up the bag as you create a secure seal it rips easily at the touch.
The bags look fine in appearance, they are black, but you can see from holding one up that they won't hold too much rubbish. They are packaged in an Asda smartprice sleeve, for snobs out there, this might put you off, but really in this day and age I think everyone appreciates if something is good value it doesn't matter how it looks. The sleeve is made from recyclable material and explains the way to put the bag in a bin and to tie it afterwards, I won't bore you with this as it is self explanatory.
Overall, we have taken to putting much less rubbish in a bag and thus ensuring it doesn't rip, rather than stopping using these altogether, by doing this we still get pretty good value out of the bags, but don't end up in that horrible situation of having to pick pieces of rubbish off of the floor and move everything into a more secure bag.
From my experience I will pay more for a better quality bag in the future to ensure I have a more reliable experience with my rubbish disposal, I think these have their value in the fact there are a lot of bags for a good price, but for me I am prepared to pay a little more for the peace of mind associated with knowing when I pull the bag out of the bin, all of its contents will come with me.
Good Price, but flawed design, I will give it a 3 out of 5, as you can get great value use out of this if you fill your bin to a lower level, or ensure heavy goods or anything slightly edgy in design aren't placed in this bin.
Summary: Good price, not such a good design
