After years of maintaining direct contact with the consumer, we have detected a few simple tips that we can share.
Only an informed and demanding consumer will be able to value our products.
01/ Decide what type of bin you need
How many people live in your household? Do they eat out or at home? What type of food do you make at home? How often do you throw out the rubbish? All these questions determine the amount and type of waste that we throw away at home: a house with a large family does not generate the same amount of waste as a single apartment. If we eat out regularly, we are less likely to fill the bag. The content of the waste that is generated in a home where many packaged products are consumed is very different than the content of the rubbish of a vegetarian home.
We recommend you adapt the type of rubbish bin you use to your lifestyle and eating habits (volume, type, frequency) and choosing a HIGH resistance bag for heavy and/or aggressive waste (sharp, cutting).
02/ Know what type of bin you have and which bag fits best
The first mission of a rubbish bag is to keep your bin clean, meaning it acts as a protective cover.
That’s why it’s important that you buy those that fit the size of the bin (or bins) you have at home. We recommend that you always keep your bin protected to avoid bad odours and the rapid spread of bacteria and fungi (black colour).
The most common sizes are: 5-10 litres (small bag for bathroom bins or rubbish bins), 20-30 litres (normal kitchen bag), 50-70 litres (large kitchen bag) and 100-120 litres (plastic bag for industrial or collective bins).
Check the measurements of your bin and identify its size.
03/ Store your waste in a cool, dry place.
Kitchens are usually a favourable habitat for the development of microbes due to their hot and humid conditions. Look for an alternative to eliminate this risk factor.
04/ Make sure the bag is well placed in the bin.
Make sure the bag fits snugly and that no parts of the bin are exposed to contact with waste. Saplex Extra bags with Anti-bacteria can be of great help in this task.
05/ Avoid contact with the lid.
Keep waste from coming in contact with the inside of your bin lid to prevent the spread of microbes (microorganisms are spread BY CONTACT).
06/ Always have a bag in place.
When removing the full bag, always replace it immediately to ensure that the bin is always protected. Saplex Extra bags with Anti-bacteria can be of great help in this task.
07/ Knot first, then remove.
Before removing the bag from the bin, close it with the Easy Close handles and remove it gently by pulling on them.
08/ If they are good, they can be used for many other things.
Their characteristics of size, colour, fragrance or other attributes (antibacterial, odour-absorbing), make them ideal for multiple uses: transporting clothes, storing objects, protection, classification, etc. There is always an occasion when a plastic bag can be useful.
