These bags are the Ikea frakta big blue laundry bag. They come in a set of three. They have many purposes. You can use them for shopping, laundry and storage. This is a set of three bags at a very low price. They are made of high quality material with flexible handles.
They have small inner handles with two larger strap handless stitched on. You can use either the short or the long handles. Having the choice of handles makes them easier to carry. This allows you to carry with either a short or a long loop. Which means that you can carry by hand or on your shoulder. They are good to carry on your shoulder with the heavier load. Both sets of handles are also comfortable to hold.
Easy to fold the bags back into the same way they arrived packaged. Therefore, they take up little space. They fold flat and do not take up much room. They fold away compactly but when open have a large capacity. As they are made of plastic, they are waterproof.
You can leave one in the car for when you go shopping. Useful at Aldi where they tend to throw the stuff at the checkout to you. You can easily put them in the bag and carry the shopping to your car boot.
One bag will do for a medium shop, but you will probably need two bags for a big shop.
They are easy to clean, rinse with water and leave to dry. Just clean with a damp cloth, wiping them inside.
Bigger than expected. If you do not want to go shopping with them you can use them in the boot of the car and just pack the smaller bags into them. Then you just have to carry the bags from the boot of the car into the house.
You can get these bags for free or cheaper at IKEA, but it is easier just to buy them from Amazon at a cheap price, especially if you are some distance from IKEA
Use these instead of paying 5 pence each for carrier bag at the checkout.
You can use them to line your supermarket trolley to put in your groceries. When you get to the car you can either repack them into the car boot or if the bag straight into the boot if the bag is too heavy.
Do not have to pack at the supermarket checkout you can just throw them into the bag
These bags will carry a large amount of shopping. Because they are so cheap, it does not matter if they tear. You can buy larger quantities, which makes them even cheaper.
They do not have a closure. You can tie the long handles together to stop things falling out. However, as they have two sets of handles you can tie them together
The bags are made of the same reinforced plastic used in tent groundsheets.
You can fill the bags up with lots of heavy items such as tins and they do b=not split or tear even under this weight
