=Daisy Refuse Sacks=
Although we have Wheelie bins, we kept hold of the old dustbins and still use them and then transfer the rubbish bag to the Wheelie bin
I'm not brand loyal, we have tried a selection over the years, and you can always tell when there not good as you get a few choice words in the air.
=Price and Availability=
Daisy brand is a brand that is in Tesco, and for a roll of 20 bags, we paid £2.20
The bags are sold as litre capacity, and this is a 70litre, but they fit perfectly in the black bin, and built in ties to knot the bag at the top before going to the wheelie bin.
=The Packaging / The Bags =
The bags are in an orange sleeve, the bags are on a roll, and are attached together with perforations, which are easy to seperate, and touch wood, in the last year, we have only lost one bag down to being ripped off to quickly,
=When you use to get black bags from the bin man=
I almost feel like i'm showing my age now, but there are not as good as the ones we use to get from the bin man, there about half the thickness.
They are quite strong (stronger than the value ones), they do hold a good amount of waste, for rubbish in kitchen we have a pedal bin, so the rubbish is all ready bagged up before it gets to the black bag.
if you had sharp objects then these would split the bags open, so they would need to be wrapped up first.
I'm pleased with the bags, from the size of them, ease of getting them separated, and holding the rubbish. There not the most expensive of bags, but they do the job and thats half the battle.
We use on average 3 bin bags a fortnight, so on average a roll of these will last 6 to 7 weeks, unless I am on gut the bedroom mode and fill a couple of bags.
I have a Brabantia pedal bin in the kitchen, around waist height type one. I absolutely hate just throwing rubbish in it so always use some form of bin bag in it, to stop leaks, smells and so on. I can then just thrown the bin bag in the big bin outside and put in a clean one - so much easier and less messy!
I've tried many different type of bin bags, from own brand right up to expensive makes and I find Daisy bin bags the best of the lot. They often are on offer in Tesco as well, such as 2 for £2, which makes them even more attractive :)
Daisy bin bags come on a roll, which is perforated at the top of each bag which allows you to tear off each bag easily. They're basic black and strong; I've used them for my pedal bin but also for gathering up rubbish and clutter to throw out. I've filled them with everything from kitchen waste to CDs, gardening rubbish, old boots and never had them break on me yet.
I would definitely recommend Daisy bin bags, they're strong and excellent value for money.
We like to keep big black bags in our house in case we are tidying out a room and need to throw a lot of things up into the roof space or the garage. Usually we buy what is cheapest, however I have found that some cheaper brands don't hold as much or rip easily, so I decided to try out the Daisy brand bin bags.
These are your average black bin bags, they come in a roll of 20 and have handles to make them easy to tie when they are full. These bags apparently have a 70 litre capacity, however I haven't tested that completely, but they are a good size.
What I Thought
I really like these bags I have found that they are very strong and durable enough to fill almost to the top without ripping or tearing. These bags can hold quite a lot of weight because they are much better quality than the Tesco Value ones that I have used in the past. Also because they are thicker, I don't mind using them to store things that I am not using in our roof space as I think they offer more protection than the Tesco Value ones.
These bags are really easy to tie, which is a big plus, I hate figiting with bags trying to close them, but the handles on these bags really do make it much easier to close them.
As I have said before, these bags are a very good size, they can hold quite a lot and you can fill them and carry them easily because they are so durable.
I like to use these bags for a range of different things, and so far they have not let me down yet. I use them to store clothes that is unwanted, books, our Christmas Tree and old toys as well as occasionally food waste or just to clean up after a party and they are good for all these purposes.
Price and Availability
You can buy these bags in Tesco for £1.99, this gets you a roll of 20. I think that this is a really good price as it works out at about 10p a bag. These bags are a little more expensive than the Tesco Value bags, however they are much strong and in my opinion worth the extra few pence.
I am very pleased with these bags, they are reasonably priced, strong, hold quite a lot and have a good capacity and are easily tied. I would definitely recommend them and will purchase them again in future. Overall I would give these bags 4 out of 5 stars.
*also on ciao under lorrainek90
We don't have any room for a rubbish bin in our tiny kitchen, so ever since we moved in we have just used a black bin bag to put our rubbish in.
Because of this we do tend to get through a lot of bin bags, at least one a day usually. While I definitely don't see the point in paying over the odds for something as simple as bin bags, I have to admit that I do steer away from the dirt cheap ones.
This is because they're simply not strong enough to hold very much and can cause a real mess if the bag splits, which happens a lot with the cheaper ones. The bin bags that I have been using for the past few months is these ones.
They're Daisy branded which I think is the name for Tesco's own range of cleaning and household products. each roll has 20 of the bags and is priced at £1.99, which is over a pound more than the value ones, but I do definitely think that they're worth it as they hold a lot of a rubbish and don't split.
The bags are black which I like as you can't see the rubbish through them. Obviously for people with bins this isn't a big issue but because we just keep the bin bag hooked onto the kitchen door handle it can look even worse if the rubbish is visible through the bag, but these ones are opaque so you can't see any.
The bags hold up to 70 litres of rubbish and I find them to be a good size. We have a small bin in our bathroom and a medium sized bin in our bedroom and one bag can hold the rubbish from both of these bins even when they are full to the brim. We had a big clean out recently which included piles of books and I used one of these bags to hold them in to take them to the charity shop and it didn't break or split even though the books were really heavy.
The best thing about these bags is that each one has tie handles, this stops any rubbish spilling out once we place the bags into the outside rubbish bin so we never need to clean it and don't need to worry bout cats or foxes being able to get into our rubbish and trailing the rubbish everywhere. The bags aren't the cheapest but they're not too expensive either and a bag of 20 will last me for about 3 weeks.
I'd definitely recommend these rubbish bags as they're strong, hold a lot of rubbish and are quite good vaue for money.
At the moment and for the past few months I have really been getting through a lot of bin bags whether it be for getting rid of rubbish or for even packing things into for moving and storing things in as I have recently moved!
I had enough of black bin bags splitting on me and thought when I bought some more that I'd pay a bit extra and hopefully get some better quality ones and these cost me £1.99 for 20 of them which I thought was pretty reasonable for this type of product.
These come in a a big roll done up with a yellow easy to tear off label with a picture of a daisy on it and we are clearly told what they are and who they are by and the amount of them is written on there along with contact details for Tesco.
Black in colour, plastic and a bit thin to look at these are easy to pull apart and to use and of course the most of mine went in my oblong kitchen bin. They are meant to hold 70L of products and me well I use them till they look full and I have enough room to pull them out of my bin and do them up and dispose of them in my huge rubbish bin. I find for everyday rubbish such as cans and cartons and the likes that these are perfectly fine, they are perforated and pull off simply enough, are easy to open and don't tear too easily however for sharp objects and the likes they do tear so me, well I'm just careful what I put in them! A bonus with these is that they do tie up as well, meaning my rubbish feels more secure!
They do for me and my everyday using and I would buy them again to be honest but will continue to try to find some more strong than this for about the same amount and money!
Only available from Tesco stores.

I was so sick of the black bin bags we bought from B&Q breaking in the kitchen bin and spilling rubbish all over that I decided it was time to try a new brand. I had heard good things about Daisy on here so they literally jumped out at me when I was looking in Tesco for some better quality bin bags. I've always thought 'why pay more' on things like bin bags but when it then creates another job to clean up the mess when they break, it's probably worth paying a few pence more.
The roll of 20 bin bags come with an attractive yellow label made of paper that you rip to open. Each bin bag is perforated to the next one so they are easy to remove and use. The one thing that interests me on the label is the logo and branding which is a nice daisy with the flower over the i as a dot and underneath it says refuse sacks... I am curious as to why they used the three dots but maybe I am over thinking it. I like using three dots in my writing to suggest something that goes unsaid but not sure what they are getting at here.
I must be stronger than I think because the first bag from the tube I ripped open down the side of the bin bag. I'm putting that one down to bad luck though as it hasn't happened since and I've been a bit more careful. I do find these bags hard to get open though as they are super static and don't want to unfold. The tie top handles are handy from getting the rubbish out of the bin and helping to not over fill the bag with rubbish.
I think I am a bit strange with this one but these bin bags smell lovely to me! Not in a perfumed or fragranced way but just in that strange rubbery clean smell. Perhaps my iron levels are still low as I do still get odd cravings from time to time even though I'm definitely not pregnant again! I was disappointed that the first bag broke on me when I had high hopes for these 'better' bin bags. They were generally strong and did the job without being too premium for the pocket and wasteful on the environment.
I paid £1.99 at Tesco for 20 bin bags which is an OK price I think.
I would buy these bin bags again I think. It amuses me when they measure the capacity of a bin bag in litres (70l in this case) as the last thing I'd want to do is fill it with water but that's an industry standard thing to do I guess. The label also warns about keeping the bags away from babies, avoiding hot ash and wrapping glass and sharp objects before placing in the bag which is all good advice. The pack of 20 bags should last me around a month as I also use them to bag up clothing we've outgrown, and a messier job; to empty the upstairs bins of nappies and sometimes these have to be double bagged if the outside bin's close to its two week wait to be emptied. I like the brand and am going to try more things from Daisy.
Bin collection day usually only entails using one bin big, and every household gets a supply of them dropped in from the local council. If you haven't received any for a while, it's probably worth asking. However, these only last a certain amount of time, all part of the government's way of trying to get us to waste less and be more efficient in our households. The bags they supply are generally very good, strong and fit for purpose. If you run out, which is virtually inevitable, then there are plenty of options in the shops, and these Daisy sacks are also fit for purpose.
For around the £2 mark, depending on where you shop, you get a roll of 20 black sacks. First off, they're easy to access, and pull apart with perforations that aren't too limiting and actually allow you to separate the bags quite easily. For me, this is ideal, as I don't often have my wits about me when I'm using them. Where we live, I can't put the bags out the night before and replace the bin bag then, I have to take it out first thing in the morning, for various reasons, and don't have anywhere else to put the bag for overnight keeping. Therefore, when I wake in the morning the first thing I do is rush downstairs and push the rubbish out, still half asleep. The Daisy sacks are actually easier to separate and put in the bin that the council ones.
They're big enough for our bin, but then it's not huge. The top wraps around the edge and seals when I put the lid on, and is durable for the week, and we try to keep it to a bag a week. Despite best attempts though, this is hard if you entertain regularly or have people to stay, as we do. When it becomes more than one bag, we have to take it out and keep it somewhere, and sometimes the bag has split, but generally this is due to us overfilling it or putting something with a sharp edge or corner too close to the bag itself. This could even be something such as the edge of a non-recyclable packet or for example a wrap that has gone hard when folded over, or bones. That sort of thing. Here, you have to be careful as I've noticed that these aren't like the heavy duty bags you can buy that seem so much more durable.
However, it really depends on what sort of household waste you should expect. If you're likely to need heavy duty sacks then this is what you should get. These Daisy sacks are fit for my purpose, and it's rare that I have had any split bags. Tying them up at the end is also very easy, and while a lot of brands can split when you strain them to tie them, these actually don't. I've had no negative experiences with them other than when sharp things have poked their way through. The occasional dampness if you fill your bag with wet stuff, but this not about bin juice seeping through, more about the atmosphere inside the bin, and for this it's really about looking at the bin you use and not necessarily the bag. For 20p or so per bag, it's worth getting some and having them should your council ones run out. Recommended.
I have been using Daisy Refuse sacks for about a year now, previously I was using Sainsbury's own but I actually prefer these ones from Tesco's own brand as I personally feel they are a better quality refuse sack. I pay £2 for a roll of 20 black quality plastic bags. Each bag is perforated on the roll and each one is very easy to tear off without fear of ripping the main body of the bag. The bags are huge. They are actually much larger than the original ones from Sainsbury's I was using. These Daisy ones are able to hold a maximum of 70 litres of rubbish so you can imagine how big that is. In fact, though my household waste bin is large in itself, it still means that when I use one of these Daisy bags that the liner will actually come right down to almost half way over the edge of the outside of my bin. As my waste bin in placed underneath my kitchen stairs though and it's out of sight, this doesn't bother me too much as it's out of the way.
I like the fact that the bags also have tow carrying handles at the top of each one. I prefer this as it just makes tying them up when they are full of waste, so much easier. They are such a strong bag too and I am able to fill them with heavier items than other refuse bags I've used in the past. I have to carry the rubbish out through the kitchen then into the living room and out through the conservatory door, as the bin is out the back in the garden. With the other Sainsbury's bags I was using previously, I found that the bags were splitting if they were too heavy and consequently, waste was leaking out of the bottom - liquid waste especially, which was dripping onto my living room carpet. This doesn't seem to happen at all with these Daisy bags as they are very tough and very strong and made to withstand a lot of heavy waste.
I personally don't experience any problems in tearing a bag off so long as I am careful though my husband always complains that one of the bags have ripped. I think this is just because he is more impatient than I am, not to mention more heavy handed, but I have found that if you are careful when you tear across the perforated edge that none of the bags will actually rip.
They are a great all-round refuse bag and though they do cost slightly more than the ones I was buying from Sainsbury's, I can say I am happy to pay that little bit more money for the better quality, not to mention the tie handles.
WHAT ARE THEY?
A roll of 20 refuse sacks from the Daisy brand.
WHAT I THINK
These are very good refuse sacks and are strong so do not split when I am using them even if I put heavy rubbish into the bags. They will hold 70 litres of rubbish and I think that's good but it means the bags are very long so they hang down the sides of my kitchen bin and that makes it look messy. What I like about the length is that the bags don't slip all the way inside of the bin because they are so long and that is good because my husband is not always very careful when he puts things in the bin and sometimes he accidentally pulls the bag down and then the bottom and sides of my bin get covered in rubbish and needs to be cleaned.
They are strong and only one has ever broken and that was when I put some sharp kebab sticks into a bag and it ripped but that was my fault. They have not got handles to tie them up with but the bags are so long that this does not matter and I can tie a knot in the top without any struggle. The plastic does not stretch even if I put heavy rubbish in, but they are still only black refuse sacks so I would not put too much of weight into them.
I but other refuse sacks so cannot be sure of the price of these, I think they are £1.89 for a roll of 20 and I think that is value because they are not the cheapest but they are not expensive and are high quality.
5 Dooyoo Stars.
After getting frustrated with buying the cheapest bin bags around and finding that they did nothing but split and lead to me having to spend time cleaning up a mess I decided to try a slightly more expensive brand. These are still within budget, they work out usually around 13p each although sometimes the price varies a bit if they are on offer.
They hold 70litres, I'm never really sure what this means but they do hold a lot! They are easy to tear off the roll and easy enough to see where one bag begins and the other one ends. Sometimes it can be difficult to see and you can spend a while trying to get the bag off but not with these luckily.
I find that it holds a lot and is substantial. It can hold quite a weight although obviously if I'm putting something really heavy into it then I will double bag it just to help give it support. They are thicker than the cheaper brands I was buying which means that they are less likely to split and are much better quality.
They do have a rather musty smell to them which I really don't like but I find that once they have been in the bin a while that smell does disappear and it doesn't linger in the room luckily.
I haven't had a bag split on me yet, I do tend to be careful though and not try to put too much in them just incase but they do definitely hold much more than cheaper brands and are more reliable in this manner which is always a good thing so I am glad I bought these.
I hate paying much for bin bags and fortunately we now have a wheelie but I still like to put some of my household rubbish in a bag, I don't really use bin liners and prefer a black bin bag to line the kitchen bin.
I do occasionally use value bin sacks but they are terrible, so more often than not I like to buy the next bags up. Daisy are a brand available in Tesco and with them seeming to be the next range up I get these.
They're okay at £2 (£2.20 at the moment) this is quite a leap in price from value but still cheaper than their other bags as you get 20. They work out at 11p each, Tesco own brand tie tops are 13p each- only 2p but it adds up.
The bags are black, tie top, 70l and come on a roll. The bags are held together with an orange sleeve, they're easy to spot on the shelf. They are attached together with perforations, which aren't too bad to separate- well compared to value anyway.
The bags aren't as black as the ones we used to get off the council, but I have to say although they look thin they aren't really. They hold quite a lot of waste without tearing and losing their contents everywhere. Obviously sharp objects will pop through but they have more 'give' in them than value bags. The bags have tie tops, which means they will hold more rubbish because I don't have to leave room at the top for tying.
I'm pleased with these bin bags- they are a good size, hold a good amount of rubbish and are stronger than value. I will continue to buy them even though I think the price has increased since I last bought them but they are still cheaper than most.
Although not the weakest bags they're not the strongest either, but strong enough for the price- so 4 stars from me.
While doing our shopping our usual black bags were substituted with daisy ones and at £2 for a pack of 20 bags I did think at first they were a little expensive but actually they are great value and although I still look out for my bargains they are great. I have used many daisy products before as they are great value items and only usually cost half the price of more established brands.The size of these bags is recommend for up to a 70 litre capacity now as my bin is not that big it does mean these bags fill the whole bin but then hang half way down the sides again which is not a big problem for me as it just means the bag stays in place but it shows the size of the bags.
The thickness of the bag is really good it is about twice to 3 times the thickness of the black bags that we usually use in our house and they carried our family waste fine although we did not fill them to the top of their capacity there was still a fair amount of rubbish held in them and they worked really well they did not tear or split and were easy to carry without worrying.
You can feel how well made they are as soon as you take them from the roll they feel a little heavier than other black bags and also once the rubbish is inside the bag it does not feel like it is going to burst which is great. You can safely fill the bags without having to worry that you have put too much in because they have been made well enough to hold to their full capacity.
They are really easy to tie up as when you pull them off the roll there are two handles at the top of the bag that you can tie together so there is no need to worry about leaving enough space at the top of the bag to do it up which means you can fill the bag pretty much to the top.
This leads me to my only downside when you come to tear the bags away from the roll although it is easy to find the dotted line to detach the bag when you begin to pull I find that it can rip and tear a little although because of the thickness this does not tear in to the next black bag as you can stop before it makes any difference which I find does not happen with other black bags. It does mean the handle of the bag you are ripping of becomes a little frayed but as this is getting tied up anyway and it does not affect the use of them it does not really matter.
At 10 pence a bag these are certainly not the cheapest option around but they are very good quality and really durable which is great when you have a large family with a lot of waste although we do try to recycle with so many of us I still find that the bin fills quickly and the cheaper bags seem a false economy as you have to double them up to make sure your rubbish does not end up over the floor.
The bags are extremely good quality they are well made very sturdy and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone especially with larger bins as you will need something sturdy to hold a larger amount of rubbish and I have never had a problem with these at all.
Daisy is a Tesco brand which offers various cleaning products for the home.
These refuse sacks (aka bin bags to you and me) are presented in a roll with an orange label holding them all together. There are 20 black bags which can be torn apart. The bags are 70l sized ones and measure approx 144cm x 94cm. They feature a tie top. Tesco advise that these bags are not ideal for food.
A 20pk is available from Tesco priced at £2.00.
When it comes to disposing of household rubbish, I prefer to place it within a black bin bag in my kitchen bin. I normally buy a 10pk of bags from Poundworld and these suit me fine. If I forget to go to buy them, I occasionally buy bin bags from Tesco. I find it amazing how expensive bin bags actually are! I have bought these Daisy bags a few times now purely based on affordability. They didn't used to be as much as £2.00 though but everything seems to have gone up in Tesco recently!
I keep my bags in the kitchen drawer and simply bring them out when the bin is being changed. I have a 40l plastic bin and I find that one of these bags completely fills the inside and leaves a suitable amount of bag sitting under the lid and visible on the outside of my bin. The bags aren't the thickest of bin bags and are slightly transparent. I have had a few issues with the odd bag in the past where the bag has actually been sealed at both ends and therefore completely useless!
These bin bags hold quite a lot. I have always used them for food which I was binning and there has never been an issue. They are stronger than they look and hold a good amount of rubbish without straining. If something spills inside the bag, it will leak but that is common with a lot of budget bin bags I have purchased. I can fill up the bag well with fairly heavy stuff without it tearing though they do tear if a sharp object scrapes along the inside.
These bags are easy to take out my bin. I personally do not like the tie handles that they have. I prefer an actual double handle but these bags simply have 4 flimsy plastic bits which don't tie very well at all especially if the bin is almost full. I dread to think how many bags have popped open in the communal bin store down stairs!
These aren't the best bin bags but they aren't terrible either. I would only buy them again if I forgot to go to Poundworld for my usual bags as they are better. Recommended if you are shopping at Tesco and want decent but cheap bin bags.
