A kitchen trash bag… it’s a part of our every day life that we know all too well. Taking out the trash is one of life’s worst chores for any member of the family. But what if that plastic bag could actually make life easier in the kitchen, but also help in a fun project we might never expect?!
Help in the Kitchen
The kitchen is certainly one of the most used rooms in the house. Between the multiples meals prepared each day by various family members, kids wandering in looking for snacks, never-ending dishes, putting away groceries, sorting your recycling and taking out the trash – the kitchen is central to a family’s home. As a mom, I look for the best quality products to use in my kitchen, even down to my kitchen trash bags! Nothing can spoil your time in the kitchen more than a stinky garbage or a trash bag that rips as you’re trying to take it out. We’ve all experienced this unfortunate situation.
I was more than happy to be given the chance to try out Hefty Ultra Strong Kitchen Trash Bags with Arm & Hammer Odor Control. I was in serious need of a better solution! Might I finally find a kitchen trash bag that can keep up with my busy kitchen?
Some days I feel like the “wimpy” guy in the video getting run over, not by a lady in a wheelchair, but by my kitchen! My kitchen is busy, can be messy and let’s just say I find leftovers in the fridge that I don’t even remember making! I definitely feel like I need WWE Wrestler John Cena in my home just to keep up with the madness! Can you feel me?!
After my first use of Hefty Ultra Strong Kitchen Trash Bags, I was so impressed with their superior quality. It’s the strongest bag I’ve ever tried! I especially love the Arm & Hammer odor control. It disguised my stinky leftovers and allowed me to not have to take it out to our main trash cans as often. And might I mention… I got it to the outside trash without a single tear or mess. The strength of these bags is exceptional and definitely holds up to my kitchen!

DIY Trash Bag Halloween Treat Bags
Hefty Ultra Strong Kitchen Trash Bags worked so well in my kitchen, I began thinking about what other ways I could use them. Halloween is fast approaching so I thought I’d take advantage of the strength of these trash bags and created some fabulous DIY Halloween Treat Bags with my kids!
- Fold the trash bag in half vertically.
- Fold the bottom edge up by about two inches, twice, to shorten the length.
- Tape the fold in place with duck tape.
- Tape the side where the original fold came together.
- Measure out strips of duck tape to make colorful stripes along the full length of the bag. Be sure to keep the drawstrings free of tape!
- Once both sides of the bag are covered in duck tape, add extra an extra strip of tape to each of the edges to give it a nice border and cover any uneven edges.
- At the top of the bag where it opens, lay one piece of tape along each of the upper edges to bring the layers of the bag together and reinforce (keep the drawstring free of tape!)
- Enjoy your super strong and fun treat bag!
