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.
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.
The bags fit well but are cheaply constructed. The pull up strings to tie off the bag consistently break. To top it all off the box they come in is so flimsy that it makes this purchase very disappointing. Expected more from Glad!!!
The actual trash bags are good but the box that it came in was wide open and busted on the sides. It looks like someone opened it and took some of the bags out. It is not worth the trouble returning it however I will never order again.
These smell so bad, I had to throw them out. You can smell them across the room, and it’s not a nice smell. I had to store them in the garage, but even walking through the garage smelling them was unpleasant, so I tossed them. Also, the drawstring is light gray, so it’s harder than it needs to be to find it in the white bags. It’s like reading light gray text on a white background. And it’s one continuous roll with perforated bags.
