Tesco Value Refuse Sacks
Advantages: Does the job
Disadvantages: Bit thin
This is a review of Tesco Value Refuse Sacks. I don't tend to swear by any one brand of bin bag but have one priority in mind and that is to spend less on something that goes straight in the bin! I usually pick up bin bags from Pound Land but we were out of bin bags on a recent shopping trip so I put a couple of these in to the trolley to try out.
The packaging for these bin bags is very minimal which is definitely a good thing. The bags are rolled together and secured with a paper liner and this has all the information about the bin bags on them.
Our main use for these bags is the kitchen bin which is a big Brabantia beast that holds a lot. Secondary to this is that we keep a supply upstairs in the nursery for when we empty the nappy bin and other upstairs bedroom bins. Finally, I use them for bagging up any items that are going in the loft or just need protecting from dust whilst in storage.
I think the main thing people want to know about bin bags is how strong they are. They don't have handles on them or any frills so it is important not to over fill them so you have a bit of purchase a the top to tie a knot in it. Our black bins are only collected once a fortnight so I don't want any spillage from them making the outside bin smell any worse! The capacity of our kitchen bin is big so a potential heavy content is there for the bin bag to hold and they have never let us down so far. The plastic is quite thin so they do easily rip so it is best to handle them gently when full and certainly the bin content from upstairs is never a full bag for the black bin so they have coped well with keeping our nappy bin contents inside them. At this stage they are double bagged (from the nappy bin liner) so smells are not too bad.
The bags cost 97p for 40 bags which I think is good value for money.
I am happy with the performance of these bags and at 97p I think they are better value for money than the ones I get from Pound land. I am sure you get more bags as well for this. I have tried more expensive bags that have handles and are thicker but I am not sure that they are worth the extra money. I will be sticking to the value range in the future although we don't always shop at Tesco these are one of the things I will look out for and keep stocked up on.
Summary: Good quality for a value product
