Garbage Bags

I bought a touch-less garbage can. It says it needs a 12 gallon bag that is type L. Nobody has them in stock!!! I already tried a 13 gallon tall kitchen bag and it doesn’t fit over the sides of the can.

Does anyone have any advice for me? I’m about ready to take it back!

I have Simple Human trash cans. Looks Ike you can get the bags directly from them.

We have one we bought a long time ago, and found the same issue. This is a pain-in-the-youknowwhat to have to do every time, but this is what we do: we stretch the top of the drawstring bag area so that it will fit!

It takes me 4 stretches per bag—I open the bag and hold the top seam area with one hand and the middle top of the bag with my other hand (as in, where the drawstring pulls out). Gently streeeetch. Repeat for the rest of the other 3 top edges. Then, finally it fits over our kitchen waste can. We have been using the Kirkland 13 gal bags from Costco.

I vote for returning it and getting one that holds regular bags.

Our trash can didn't fit regular bags so we sized up and twist the top of the bag and tuck it under the liner. It's kind of a pain so I'll make sure we don't have this problem next time.

I agree with returning it (hopefully you still have the receipt). Otherwise it will drive you crazy every time you change the bag for years!
