Tesco Value Refuse Sacks
Disadvantages: Flimsy, thin
I'm trying to cut back on all aspects of my shopping and black bags have been one of the things I've tried spending less money on. This meant instead of the regular Tesco bags I use have been replaced with Tesco Value black bags to save a few pennies.
The black bags come rolled up in a big roll with a white paper label wrapped around the outside. This label has the same design as the rest of Tesco's value range being white in colour with dashes of red and blue.
The black bags are easy to tear from the main roll of bags without tearing the beginning of another black bag at the same time. Once off of the roll the black bag can be opened easily by rubbing it bag to reveal the hole. On first opening the black bag I noticed that the bags seem a tiny bit smaller than other bags I have used. They feel cheap and flimsy and the 'black' of the black bag looks a little see through proving that they are quite thin!
I thought I'd put the black bags to the test in my kitchen bin, usually I can fit in enough rubbish until the bin is full without black bags having any trouble. However, with these black bags I didn't trust them enough to fill it to the top just incase it would tear under the pressure as I pulled the bag out of the bin. It's a good job I didn't wait until it was full as it split anyway, not a lot but enough to drop a little of the contents on the floor. I've since used the bags for clothes and toys when sorting out the house and I've not been able to fill them much as they just can't take the wait.
These Tesco Value black bags cost around £1 for 30 bags. I would personally just spend a little more and get black bags that you can actually trust as these are just too flimsy and thin to use as main bin bags.
Summary: Spend a little more on decent black bags
