When these ForceFlex trash bags came out years ago, I was skeptical and thought it was another useless gimmick. But my mother-in law used them regularly and I was able to see first hand how well they worked for her, so I began buying them and have used them ever since.
These bags do what they are supposed to - which is resist any sharp or hard garbage from being able to poke a hole in the bag. The bag does a great job of holding everything in place and being durable enough to last from the kitchen to the dumpster. These particular ones have an added feature which is the Febreze scent for extra freshness. Although this is nice, I feel the air freshener quality doesn't last more than a day once the bag has been put in the trashcan.
But nonetheless, it's still a great product and there is definitely no other trash bag that is better in terms of quality and reliability. They come in the kitchen size (white) and the outdoor can size (black). The price is usually a little high compared to other trash bags, but you get what you pay for.
Thank God for these !
I am eternally grateful for the invention of Glad Forceflex Odorshield with Febreze Freshness Trash Bags! I share a college apartment with three other girls and the trash tends to pile up and smell more than once a week. In the past we have purchased cheap trash bags but the problem with those are they tear easily sending our smelly gross trash everywhere before we can even take it out to the garbage unit. Now that we have started using Glad Forceflex Odorshield with Febreze Freshness Trash Bags we do not have that problem anymore! Now the trash does not stink up the kitchen and the trash bag never tears so we can effectively take the trash out now without it spilling out everywhere. These trash bags fit our medium size trash can perfectly and is easy to use when we are done with a bag. Just unwrap the bag from the trash can and pull on the red handles to tighten and then tie those handles in a knot and you are good to go! I will definitely recommend these trash bags to everyone!
Super strength trash bags
I tried these Force Flex trash bags in hopes that I would no longer have exploding trash bags with horrific smells in my house. Wow, these proved to be amazing! At the end of the week, right before trash day, our bags are completely full. I don't have the problems of ripped bags, or worry about sharp boxes or cans ripping the bag. These bags are super strong and stretch with the contents inside, just as advertised. I use these bags all the time, and the scent works great too especially when I use them in the diaper pail with the most toxic smells ever. These bags work wonders!
Can't get better than this.
I don't know how a trash bag could possibly be designed better than this one. It's perfect! No one likes the smell of garbage & cleaning up after my 130 lb dog is even worse. These bags make that job a lot more pleasant. My son holds the bag open, which emits the wonderful scent of febreze and I scoop, but we could not smell any bad odors. The whole time we were cleaning up outside all we could smell was the febreze, it was wonderful.

Glad forceflex odorshield w/ febreze trash bags are ok bags
Glad ForceFlex OdorShield with Febreze Freshness trash bags are great. I like em. Take out the trash when it's FULL, not when it STINKS. Glad ForceFlex OdorShield w/ Febreze Freshness trash bags have odor neutralization and stretchable strength that work so well you can fill the entire bag before you take it out. Know some bag half empty gals? Share this with them and let them in on the secret. Don't take out the trash when it's one fourth or one half or one third full, take it out when it is completely full. I think you save in the long run, they cost just a slight bit more, but with not taking them out when they are not completely full saves on the amount of bags i use and the smell/ the freshness/ the odor control on these bags is great. My trash is in the cabinet, built in, you open the cabinet door and it slides out, making it enclosed and odor can really build up, i was always taking out the trash just because of the smell, the odor. Not with bags, i don't have to, i can let them fill up and not have an odor over doing it either. Great idea Glad. Someone was thinking clearly that day for sure. Love these bags. I have used the bags for awhile now, and am reviewing what i wrote, it seems when the bag is 3/4 full and if it has onion peels in it and is enclosed in a cabinet, you do start smelling some, and i had to take it on out, so it wasn't all the way full, but onion peels had been put in in the begininng and they didn't smell till bag was 3/4 full and more onion peels put in. And i think if my trash wasn't enclosed in a cabinet, it may not of began to smell at all. So still like the bags, but they can start an odor at 3/4 full, or it has been my experience, still great bags, has odor control aid and is strechable as well. So still great bags, but not slightly as good as i had thought, but still great bags.
Amazing! Who knew garbage could smell so good?
Wow, Fabreze is on fire these days! It has teemed with so many products to add wonderful, fresh fragrances that I can't keep up with them all. I don't blame them--Fabreze is my favorite spray room freshener and odor eliminator on the market today. Why not add some of that fresh scent to detergent, fabric softener, trash bags, and heaven only knows what else? It can only make the products smell better, after all. I can't say that I would ever have thought to add Fabreze's wonderful fragrance to trash bags, but I sure am glad that Glad did.
I have been using Glad Forceflex Trash Bags since the first time I saw them on the shelf and bought a box. I don't use them in huge garbage cans, so I don't know how well they work when they have been pushed to the limit, but I know they work wonderfully for my regular sized trash cans in my kitchen and bedrooms. I don't have a lot of bottles or super heavy garbage, but I can pack my trash cans full of regular garbage like empty pasta boxes, paper plates, uneaten food, junk mail, and my other normal trash, and I watch the Forceflex bags S-T-R-E-T-C-H to their full capacity without tearing or ripping at all. I then tie the red plastic handles together and tell one of my four sons to come take out the garbage. I can honestly say that we have never had a Glad Forceflex Trash Bag fall apart on us before making it to it's destination in the green garbage can outside. I can't say what would happen if I packed it full of heavy bottles or jars because I don't use very many of those, but I can tell you that my experience with these trash bags has been more than satisfactory and I don't buy any other brand.
So, I was a fan of Forceflex Trash Bags before Fabreze was added to the equation. I liked them when they just smelled like plastic. Now they smell like fabric softener or air freshener, and that only makes me like them more. I don't ever smell stinky garbage in my kitchen anymore, even when there is thrown away food in the trash for a couple of days. I keep my trash can in a kitchen cabinet, and when I open the cabinet to throw something in the trash, all I smell is the nice, fresh scent of Fabreze.
I use the bags in my bedrooms, too, because the trash cans are out in the open and I can smell the scent of the Fabreze when I walk into a bedroom. Using these bags has cut down considerably on the amount of air freshener sprays and plug ins that I have to buy and use to keep my home smelling clean and fresh.
These trash bags do cost a bit more than others, but they hold a lot of everyday kinds of trash without tearing, and they smell so good that I don't have to buy as many other products to freshen my home, so for me it ends up about the same as far as the cost is concerned. Spend more here, spend less there, and all is well.
I use **Glad Forceflex OdorShield With Fabreze Freshness Trash Bags **regularly and I love them. I have recommended them to friends and extended family members and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone else.
