Mint-X: Rodent Repellent Trash Bags Review and Giveaway
We here at DealsAmongUs are located on the coast. This has its advantages and it’s disadvantages. The advantages are as numerous as they are magical and range from being only 1/4 mile from the beach, being smack dab in the middle of some of the best carne asada burritos anywhere and always being walking distance from the ocean sunsets.
The disadvantages are really more like huge disturbances in everyday life. One of the biggest disadvantages is that our area gets raccoon’s and possum’s. These little friends come to our porch at night, peak the Muggles interests, and hunt for food as well as shelter of any kind. Often times they strike out, but have hit pay-dirt in the form of trash bags that get left until the morning.
Now this does not occur utterly often, but if it is late and really dark then the trash will get left until the morning. These night are generally few and far between, and make me hesitant to wake up (for fear of a mess that we will be forced to pick-up). I am happy to say that I may have found my solution to the worry I feel leaving the trash out overnight: Mint-X Rodent Repellent Trash Bags.
Mint-X: Rodent Resistant Trash Bags are mint infused trash bags that repel rodents. These are your standard 13 gallon trash bags, although they are available in the larger 33 gallon sizes as well as various other gallon quantities. These are infused with mint during the manufacturing process – meaning no transfer of smell on clothes and skin. Rodents do not like the smell of mint and the continual use of Mint-X trash bags will deter rodents from locating dinner in your trash!
These draw string trash bags are not harmful to humans or animals, making them perfect for a house with animals that you want to keep. It is recommended that you use these bags consistently (the critters will learn that you are the house with the mint and they will avoid it). It is also recommended not to “co-mingle” the Mint-X Trash Bags with your regular use bags and to clean out the containers in which the bags are placed – this minimizes any food residue attraction.
These trash bags were everything I anticipated that they would be, and they survived a night on our porch with no attempted break ins. Now I will say that this could be due to the bags, the season, if another house had better offerings. What I am saying is that your individual results will differ from ours, and that is to be expected. The one thing that we should have in common in the absence of raccoon’s and possums (and what ever buddies you have) getting in our trash.
