Boots Basics Fragranced Nappy Sacks
Advantages: Easy to use - do not rip/tear - a brillant price.
Disadvantages: None for me!
I have bought nappy sacks and nappy bags many times over the years, as I find them a handy item to keep around the home. The amount of times I have purchased these items has increased greatly since the birth of my young nephew however, as he is a regular visitor to my home and so I often have to dispose of his nappies in a hygienic manner.
One brand of nappy bags that I have purchased many times is from the well-known drugstore Boots. Costing only 50 pence or so for a small package containing approximately one hundred individual fragranced nappy bags, I find that this is a great value price for such a large quantity of the bags, and I have no complaints on this score.
The outer packaging for the nappy bags has changed a little recently, so it looks slightly different from the picture at the top of the Dooyoo page. The overall appearance of the product is still fairly plain-looking I have to admit, although this doesn't strike me as being off-putting or remotely negative, especially given the value price of the nappy bags.
Each of the nappy bags is approx 285mm x 310mm in size, including the handles.
Each of the bags is fragranced, which is designed to "Help mask the odour of soiled nappies" according to the reverse of the packaging. I would agree with this statement to a point, and think that the light, powdery fragrance carried on the bags does help to give the impression of 'freshening up' the bin or waste container into which you have disposed of your soiled nappy. I wouldn't go so far as to say that the fragrance on the bags completely covers or 'masks' the used-nappy smell altogether, but I find that every little helps in these situations!
The bags are made of a very light polythene or plastic, and I find this is surprisingly robust. I haven't experienced any problems with the bags splitting or bursting as they are being used, which is something I have found can often be the case with 'budget-branded' sacks or bags similar to the Boots ones, so this was a welcome discovery for me. I also think that the handles on the bags are of a long enough length to allow the bag to be tied up hygienically and easily - another plus point if your bag is containing a particularly whiffy nappy!
I have found the Boots nappy bags come in handy for other reasons aside from disposing of soiled nappies however, and in particular I find they are helpful - and hygienic - when it comes to disposing of my pets' waste. I often walk my friend's small dogs and one thing I cannot stand is to witness a dog-owner allowing their pet to foul on a pavement or in a park, then simply walk off and ignore the mess left behind. I personally think this is a highly discourteous act, and would be horrified if one of my beloved "pooch-nephews" made a mess and I was unable to clean it up afterwards. When walking the little guys, I always have my pockets bulging with essentials. This includes some treats (naturally!), as well as their ball, and a generous handful of the Boots nappy bags for any little "droppings" that might appear during our walk. I find it takes all of two seconds to use a couple of the bags over my hand and scoop up the mess. I can then dispose of it in an additional bag and tie up the ends before putting the whole lot in the bin. Easy peasy!
Similarly, my old girl is very much a house cat, and does not get outdoors at all which means she uses her litter trays indoors to do the toilet. I regularly use the Boots nappy bags in the same way as with my doggy-friends, and am able to scoop out her droppings hygienically and quickly. I find the bags offer a fuss-free method of removing - and disposing - of her waste.
Lastly, I have found that these little bags come in very handy for travelling or going abroad. I find that the little bags offer some peace of mind in terms of my toiletries and assorted lotions and potions. In the past, I have found that one or more of my bottles has leaked during my travels, causing a huge mess over the contents of my toiletry bag, so I tend to use the little nappy bags to individually 'wrap' the bottles and jars and thus cut out any risk of damage to the rest of my toiletries as a result of any spillages. I have found this to be a method that really works for me, and have suffered no spillage-damage since I started this practice.
It should be noted that the bags are not suitable for food use, nor are they suitable to be flushed down the toilet. As with all plastic bags, they should be kept away from babies and children to avoid risk of suffocation.
Overall, I am very pleased with the Boots Nappy bags and will continue to buy them for my household. I find that they really are a must-have item to allow me to properly care for all the gorgeous babies in my life - whether animal or human!!!
The Boots fragranced nappy bags can be purchased online at www.boots.com, or instore in larger branches.
Summary: Bargain nappy bags from Boots that I would recommend.
