Measuring Tips to Fit a Bag Inside a Box

To determine proper bag size for use with a square or rectangular container:

When determining the flat width of the bag needed:

  1. Add the width and length of the sides.
  2. Add 1 inch for a looser fit.

To determine the length needed:

  1. Add 1/2 of the shortest side to the height of the container.
  2. Add another 4 inches to this value for overhang.
  3. If tying bag rather than lining a box, add 1/2 length of the shortest side to the bag length in Step 2.
