I've been know to shove as much garbage as I can before taking the trash out and I've had more than one bag break on me in the past. But since I've started using these I've had no issues, they stretch just enough to let me fit that 'last piece' of garbage in. Overall great bag and I won't buy any other kind
We use aluminum foil often in our house. It's great to use on the grill, in the oven, and in the toaster oven. And it makes cleanup a snap. The heavy duty is pretty durable and we've used it to cook things in camp fires.
I have a dishwasher but it doesn't work well so I do all my dishes by hand. I always use Scotch-Brite products. They have a rough side to scrub the hard baked on stuff and a non scrub side that I use for more delicate things that I don't want scratched. They are super affordable and last a while.
