Two great features combined
on February 22, 2011
I purchased a small box of these Glad ForceFlex 13 gallon trash bags with Odor Shield at my local grocery store and have been hooked on them ever since. The product concept is simple, they're a trash bag which typically don't rip (unless you have a bag full of knifes) and they have a mild scent on them which covers up garbage odors. I have two cats and I clean their litter box everyday. I have never smelled the cat litter in this garbage bag. The product simply works as advertised, which I find extremely refreshing.
However, the price per bag on Amazon, at the time of this review posting, is not competitive. I purchased this 120 count on Amazon as an impulse buy. A month later, I went to my local Wal-Mart and I noticed that a 55 count was being sold for $9.69 (includes 8% sales tax). That's 18 cents per bag. Currently, the price being charged on Amazon is $27.99 for a 120 count box. This amounts to 24 cents per bag. My recommendation would be to make sure that you determine the price per bag before purchasing on Amazon.
NOTE: I gave the product a 5 star rating because the product works as advertised. I'm not one of those people that bases their rating on Amazon's fluctuating price.
2/20/2012 - UPDATE: I've noticed that people have been giving this product 1 star in regards to the drawstring. I have emailed Glad about this and asked them to change the design of the draw string to make it thicker. If anyone has the time, I would recommend emailing Glad and also requesting this. Who knows, they might listen to us. I still have not had any drawstring's tear and I've been using these bags for a year now. As for the odor, I've read user comments where they complain that it's too strong or not strong enough. Perhaps this is a quality control issue on Glad's part or just very, very sensitive noses?
