We chose to create different testing categories for the small trash bags we reviewed to make it a smooth and accurate process. Our testing categories allowed us to review the top features of each product to narrow down our top choices to recommend to consumers. The testing categories include durability, odor, and efficiency when evaluating the overall quality and value of each trash bag.
Durability: Durability is a top category we selected to determine if the product is prone to ripping or tearing with excess waste in the bag. We reviewed how well each bag held up when loading it up with plenty of waste and debris.
Odor: Odor is an additional category that we evaluated to determine if the bags masked the smell of the waste or if it emitted the scents of the trash. We also reviewed if any of the added scents on the bag smelled like chemicals.
Efficiency: The overall efficiency of each trash bag was an additional factor that we took into account while rating each item. We reviewed how well the bags contained the waste and if they were easy to transport and lift out of each bin.
