I am just wondering what other uses you have for dog poo bags as I have currently got lots and wondered what else they can be used for other than dog poo ?
Any uses as glove alternative for short time if not got any to protect you (COVID-19)
Many Thanks

I don't have a dog but I assume they are similar to nappy bags? If so, as I have loads left, I am using them as liners for the bin in the bathroom (it is very small) , to bring reusable wet wipes with me if out and about, to put my reusable sanitary towels in when I am out and occasionally as liners for the food caddy (but they are too small, so I need to be careful to put the food waste in!).

We'd just bought 200 scented nappy sacks when my dog passed away. We're using them to put the cats' poos in when we clean the litter tray now.

Very handy when picking blackberries (just don't get the bags mixed up)

I also take them on trips as handy bags for food, sick bags, etc.

I put them over my muddy garden shoes when I want to pop into the house for something but can’t be bothered taking them off.

Useful as doggy bag grin in past when eating out so no food waste & happy hounds when I get home. I usually wrap up in napkin first as most bags are scented.

I've also fashioned some shoe upper covers out of them while decorating.

I use them for all sorts, rubbish bags when we are out, bags for the kids to collect stuff when we are out - shells, twigs, stones, sick bags in he car, gloves at the petrol station.

We do use biodegradable ones.

Bags for sanitary products.
Collecting seeds when out and about.
Cover hands when opening gates/climbing stiles on walks.
Don’t collect blackberries in them. DH suggested that the other day but they would have been too reminiscent of a massive poo in there grin

I use nappy sacks to safely store my used face covering until I'm home again and can wash it. I do buy dog poo bags, and prefer bio-degradable ones, but in reality it depends on price.

I have cats too, and as they tend to eat little and often, in this weather, the food soon starts stinking, so I put the scraps in the bag, and tie up, so the stink cant, get in the bin.

I put treats in them for walks.

I was about to say exactly the same thing.

I also keep one in the door of my car for sweet wrappers, chewing gum etc.
