~Asda Smart Price Refuse Sacks~
Amongst the Asda Smart Price products I have bought and used are the Smart Price Refuse Sacks which I have found to be of a poorer quality than the refuse bags I would normally opt to buy. At the time of buying these budget priced Asda bin bags I felt they looked like fair value for money as they were priced at £1.09 for 45 bags. Having never bought or used these particular bin bags before, I felt they were worth trying as they were inexpensive to buy when comparing them to other similar products that were on sale.
Having now used the Asda bin bags to store a selection household and garden waste in, I have to say that I found them to be a little too short for the dustbin I would normally place them in. I found that the Smart Price refuse sacks were just too short to give a comfortable amount of over hang over the top of the dustbin. A decent amount of bin liner material should over hang the actual dustbin in my opinion, as it ensures that the contents of the bin (as it fills up) is held safely inside, rather than causing the bin bag to slip down in to the bin, spilling the contents.
When I tried using these Asda Smart Price refuse sacks I found that they were no good at staying in place as the contents of the bin filled up. The bags were very light and flimsy and this combined with the shorter length of the bags meant that they often ended up spilling the contents of the bags out in to the bin itself. When it came to emptying the bin I found that when I used these refuse sacks there was not enough material to grab hold of in order to pull the bin bag out.
The thin material used to make these refuse bags is the most important downside to them in my opinion as they can so very easily tear and rip when filled. The bags cannot really hold anything with sharp edges or anything too bulky without them ripping once you try to remove them from the dustbin. I found that the only way I could use up all the refuse sacks without spilling the contents of the dustbin, or ripping the bags all the time, was to place one refuse sack inside the other.
~Product rating/ price~
In my opinion having to use 2 refuse sacks in the dustbin each time, most certainly wiped out any value for money that the Smart Price refuse sacks may have given me. The low cost of the bags may have seemed attractive at first, however after having used this product I feel that I would have been better off paying a little more to buy better quality bags in the first place. My rating for these refuse sacks is just 2 stars as I feel they do not function as well as they ought to. The cost of 45 refuse sacks is £1.09 at the moment.
