To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
First let me start by saying I love Febreze, but only the linen scent, and only a quick shot of it in the air, so when I saw this I decided to order it. How bad could it be, right?
When it came, it was the first and ONLY thing I smelled even before I opened the box. I had two other items in the same box, and now they smell. I really felt sorry for the delivery driver. It is WAY too strong, especially if you are very sensitive/allergic to certain smells like I am, but since I never had a sensitivity issue with Febreze before I thought these would be great. I was wrong. 😩
I let the box air out for a day or two, but it did not get any better. I use 8 gallon trash bags in my bedroom, and that is ALL I smelled for the next five days. It was actually nauseating, and so strong that I got a sinus infection from it (still recovering from that). I ended up giving the entire box (minus 1 bag) to my neighbor. If she didn’t want them, I would’ve thrown the whole box away.
Some of the reviewers for this product can’t believe that people are that sensitive to this product, but I can vouch for the fact that these are way too strong. Do yourself a favor, if you’re sensitive to smells, buy the unscented bags.
this is the WORST smell ever!!! Smells like a guy with cheap cologne has climbed inside my garbage. Terrible, worst ever. And I love GLAD, but this scented stuff is an abomination NEVER BUY THIS EVER I deserve my money back and free nose clips. HORRID
Acceptable trash bags for medium size cans, nice taupe edge, pleasanter to look at than garish yellow. Could certainly be thicker. But delighted to finally find a medium drawstring bag even if it’s just thick enough. . The box is insufficiently durable. And since the bags separate along perforations, pulling one out stresses the box. I generally wind up double bagging the trash, using a slightly thicker non drawstring bag from Target. This gives me reasonable assurance the trash won’t spill out. I use these bags for kitchen waste, which is why I’d like them thicker. I have no wish for a larger trash can, as it would dominate my space unacceptably. Come on, Glad, make something even better.
I recently had new kitchen cabinets installed that came with a pull out trash container it included a new trash bin. It was not the same size we had previously and the “Tall” kitchen bags we had been using were too large. The cabinet manufacturer did not say what size the new can was so I had to take a guess. These trash bags fit perfectly so I suppose they gave me an 8 gallon size bin. The trashbags work great they have a nice smell that is not overpowering at all unlike what some people that have done reviews posted. The box that they came in was not made of very thick cardboard like I’m used to with the big box of tall kitchen trash bags but that’s just the way it goes it’s fine. I really don’t know why some of the other people reviewing gave such bad reviews because I’m happy with the purchase I’m happy with the bags they fit an 8 gallon size trash bin perfectly and I will most likely buy them again good luck with your purchase.
For some reason, I could not find the Medium size garbage bags in my local supermarket during the pandemic. I even asked the customer service person to re-order the medium size bags but no success. So I went online and found this Glad Medium Kitchen Drawstring Trash Bag, and lo and behold, it is really an excellent buy. Not only does the bag fit my medium garbage container, but it has enough room so that I can pull up the sides even when it is already full because it is also just slightly bigger than the trash can itself, and add more trash. Also, it has a drawstring which is so great because I can just pull the drawstring and it closes the bag unlike my old medium size bags, making it super convenient. Highly recommend, for those with medium trash cans.
This doesn't even come close to fitting an 8 gallon trash can. Mine rip every time I try to stretch them to fit. Not only is the opening not wide enough, they are not deep enough. Either my trashcan is mislabeled and is a 9 gallon one, or these are 7 gallon bags, either way don't waste your money. They've also ripped multiple times when carrying my trash out. Truly horrible quality, which surprised me since this is such a recognizable name brand.
The bags are trash bags. They’re fine. I was going to use them in secondary bags. They’re 8 gal. and won’t work in kithen. Not tall enough. The “fragrance” is unbelievable. If you want to get rid of guests who’ve overstayed, put one of these bags in his/her trash can. OMG, smelling salts anyone. Can’t use them. I’m sure they’re fine bags. I wouldn’t use them in my house!
I've found it to be surprisingly difficult to order non-scented, 8 gallon, semi-sturdy kitchen trash bags. So, I decided to give these scented ones a try. The smell is STRONG. If it were milder than I wouldn't mind it, but the level was too much for me.
As for durability and sturdiness, the bags rip and stretch slightly if stuffed too full, and I've found that to be normal for almost all trash bags/brands. Nothing special, nothing terrible, as far as those traits go. Very OK. I'd rate it 3 stars if not for the scent-is-way-too-strong issue.
Perfect size for bathroom or quick kitchen trash. Couldn’t put in office trash bin because these are a little too Febrezee. I will look for this size, in unscented. I can smell the bathroom bag from the bedroom, and the kitchen bag from the dining room. The scent doesn’t die down, all night. I will store box in the garage.
These trash bags STINK so bad. The "fresh scent" or whatever is so strong it gave me a headache almost as soon as I opened the shipping box, never mind opening the box to use the bags themselves. Thank goodness I have missed trash cans.
