Your supermarket bags and groceries are in good hands.

Your supermarket shopping is in good hands with McLintocks Vanilla Fresh.

Major retail chains / supermarkets decided to phase out their standard free plastic bags last year (2018). This caused a relative amount of discomfort and inconvenience for most regular shoppers, because now they had to, ‘Bring their own bags’ or even worse, ‘Pay for a bag’, the nerve of it, really. Well since then with the introduction of the, ‘No free plastic bag’, rule, Australians have reduced their plastic bag consumption by up to 80%, according to the National Retailers Association (NRA). Obviously there are still single use plastic bags available for purchase, but in time these will also be phased out, with the vast majority of shoppers opting to use the reusable bags now available to purchase across all retail outlets.

Now, a reusable bag that carries your groceries, particularly produce that isn’t packaged can and will over a short period of time become less than enviable if it is not cleaned. And further more, it could carry germs and bacteria. So to aid in keeping your groceries fresh, once you have finished a shop and emptied your bags, give your bags a quick spray inside and out with McLintocks Vanilla Fresh, followed by a wipe with a damp cloth. McLintocks Vanilla Fresh kills 99.9% of germs and is safe to spray on areas where food is present.

Finally, once you have used your bags a few times just give them a quick hand wash in detergent inside and out. Or if you use a canvas reusable bag, throw it in the washing machine for a quick wash.
