    "I'll admit that I was a little skeptical about the quality, just because they were so much cheaper than the other brand I was buying before, but I wasn't disappointed. The bags are thick and I've never had one rip on me (literally my worst nightmare!). I also really like how these are unscented. I'll never buy one of those tiny boxes again!" —Sarah Aspler
