Glad ForceFlex bags – trash can cleaning in 5 simple steps

The dreaded bin is a contentious issue in most homes – who takes out the trash? Who cleans the bin? And these days, how to avoid touching anything… If you do, be sure to wash your hands thoroughly and avoid touching your face, handles, door knobs etc…

Overall, GLAD ForceFlex Bags are your new best friend and here is why…

They stretch – say goodbye to spills in your bin

No more double bagging (to avoid those nasty spills)

Drawstrings for easy handling

The GLAD ForceFlex range is available in a variety of sizes.

GLAD has revolutionised garbage bags with their ForceFlex™ Stretchable Strength® range. The unique diamond-like material stretches around objects and awkward edges, which prevents rips and tears. The material is made from “smarter”, not thicker plastic.

Trash Can Cleaning in 5 Simple Steps

Cleaning the bin isn’t actually a difficult chore. Just follow these five simple steps and your trash can will be spotless — and odourless — in no time.

Step 1: Empty the Trash Can

Put on rubber gloves and empty the bin.

Step 2: Rinse it Out

Rinse with water (if you have outdoor space, the easiest way is using a garden hose).

Step 3: Spray and Deodorise

Use a disinfectant spray or all-purpose cleaner and spray the inside and outside of the bin. Take about half a cup of baking soda and sprinkle it inside to deodorise it. Leave for 5–10 minutes.

Step 4: Give it a Scrub

Give it a really good scrub – inside, outside and the lid.

Step 5: Rinse and Dry

Once scrubbed to your satisfaction, rinse it again thoroughly — and then let it dry or dry it off. Make sure it is completely dry before putting in a GLAD ForceFlex Bag, so no mould-causing moisture gets trapped inside.

Now you can confidently fill your rubbish bin to the brim, because GLAD ForceFlex is TEAR RESISTANT. So fill ’em, stretch ’em and stuff ’em with just about anything and everything!

Perfect for all seasons and reasons. Only GLAD has the Stretchable Strength of ForceFlex. For the protection you need to get things done, get GLAD.
