Title : Very thin but...
Comment : I have had to tell my housemates not to fill the bin as much as we normally do, as these bags tear as you lift them out of the bin. But, they are so much better for the environment that I will continue to use them. It is a small price to pay, really.

Title : Kitchen bags
Comment : These are a great alternative to plastic. I find that they are quite thin and easily ripped, especially when wet. I recommend disposing of the bag/rubbish if the contents is wet to avoid bag breakage.

Title : Inconsistent
Comment : I guess it depends what we put in them but sometimes they are great, and other times they break. If you put anything wet in there e.g. tea bags they tend not to last as long. We are buying another pack though, so on average they are ok.

Title : Persevered and now absolutely love them!
Comment : I just wrote the same about the food waste bags, but it also applies to the kitchen bags. We use both and LOVE them. When we started using these bags over two year ago, and in the beginning we too ripped them easily (to our great dissatisfaction). We however continued to use them and I cannot even recall having torn a single bag in the last 23 months, nor can my husband. Sure, we have come to love these bags and nothing else will enter our household! They have become an absolute favourite.

Title : good idea, bad product
Comment : These bags tore in my hands as I took them out of the box. There is no way you can use them. They are simply too fragile. Unless If You Care change the product, I won't buy these again. Very disappointing!

Title : Not strong enough
Comment : Not strong enough to hold even half a bag of rubbish.
