I just received a sample box of Hefty's Kitchen Bags with Unscented Odor Block Technology. I usually change my kitchen trash bags once or twice a week, so I haven't actually used the trash bags yet, but I am curious to see if the odor blocking technology truly works. Has anyone tried these bags out? If so, let us know and there could be a $10 Sur La Table Gift Card for you. There's also a $1.00 off coupon for these bags below if you want to try them out.
Kitchen trash can start smelling up the house pretty fast unless the trash bag is taken care of regularly. Unfortunately, it takes time to fill up my 13 gallon trash bags, and I don't like throwing out bags that aren't full (unless I just threw away some uncooked seafood like shrimp shells or fish guts). I try to control the odor through the use of a lidded trash can (and not cleaning out the fridge until I take out the bags), but sometimes opening the lid for a couple seconds is enough to flood the kitchen with an overwhelming smell.
I don't like scented bags because the chemical fragrances used are generally overpowering (if it wasn't overpowering, then they wouldn't be powerful enough to overcome the trash smell) which means they compete with food smells. Artificial potpourri fresh perfume mixed with hickory smoked barbecue ribs isn't my idea of a good combination. I don't know how Hefty's Odor Block Technology works (I wasn't able to find any technical information with a few quick searches on the internet), and I don't know IF it works. But if it does, that could be pretty cool.}?>
If you want to try out the bags for yourself, Hefty has provided a $1-off coupon available by logging into Facebook and liking them at:
The facebook link should be producing coupons (which I'm told are unique) for the next month or so. Once you try out the bags, let me know if they work/don't work or if you like/dislike them by posting a comment to this article. If you post as a registered Cooking For Engineers forum user with a valid email, then you'll have the chance to win a $10 Gift Card to Sur La Table. I'll contact the winner via email for their mailing address.}?>
