When making your liner choice, refer to this Quick Glance Liner Chart for the basics.

In addition to liner basics, we also carry liners treated with Microban.  Microban Antimicrobial Product Protection inhibits the growth of bacteria on the bag and will not wash off or wear away.  The liners are actually manufactured with the protection built-in to the manufacturing.   This protection helps curb the growth of bacteria that can cause odors commonly found on trash can liners.
