What is The Best Trash Can for Diapers?
Choose the best diaper pail for you!
Looking for the best trash can for diapers? It might be a little tricky! As you probably know already (or you'll get to know that shortly), a normal trash can won't work well for storing soiled diapers, both disposable diapers and cloth ones.
Normal garbage cans aren't manufactured to keep most of the bad smell inside, so if you use one as a diaper pail, in most cases it'll get pretty smelly in the nursery! That's why you need a trash can that's appropriate for storing dirty diapers, so most of the smell will be kept inside it.
What are the features that a good trash can for diapers should have?
First and the most important features, as I've mentioned above, is the ability to keep the bad smell away. Another major thing is that a diaper pails need to be extremely functional. You need to be able to easily open the thrash can (possibly using a pedal). Emptying and refilling the container should be easy to perform as well - you'll do it probably every or every other day, so it should be convenient.
There are a lot of diaper pails available on the market and it's really difficult to point out the best one, most of them have both advantages and flaws. To find the best one for you, you should check out the features of the container and possibly a few reviews written by parents who have bought the product. Let's check out the best ones!
Playtex Diaper Genie Elite Diaper Disposal Pail
Playtex Diaper Genie Elite Diaper Disposal Pail is a best-selling trash can for diapers. If has a foot pedal, so you can easily open it without using your hands (that's very useful if you're carrying your baby in one hand and the dirty diaper in the other).
Parents say that the Diaper Genie trash can is convenient to use and there is no smell in the nursery. One thing to remember - if you're buying Diaper Genie's diaper pail, you'll probably have to buy their refills as well.
Munchkin Arm and Hammer Diaper Pail
Munchkin Arm and Hammer Diaper Pail is a simple, stinkless and easy to use diaper pail. Another great thing about this trash can for diapers is that you don't have to cut or tie the bags, provided you use the Munchkin's refills. The biggest flaw of this product is that you sometimes need to squish the dirty diaper in, what might be a little gross for some people.
Odorless Cloth Diaper Pail
Odorless Cloth Diaper Pail is a diaper pail designed specially for cloth diapers. It has plenty of room, you can store there even two day's worth of cloth diapers for two babies. No pedal that lifts the lid is probably the only flaw of this diaper pail.
Diaper Dekor Plus Diaper Pail
Diaper Dekor Plus Diaper Pail is a great diaper pail for both disposable and cloth diapering. You can use plastic refill bags (or even kichen harbage bags) or a cloth pail liners, depending on your needs. It's also easy to use - you just need to step on the pedal, drop the soiled diaper into the containers and that's it!
Diaper Dekor Diaper Pail Disposal System - XL
XL Diaper Dekor Diaper Pail Disposal System is a bigger brother of the Diaper Dekor's diaper pail mentioned above. It can hold up a lot of diapers (even about 50) and it holds the bad smell pretty well. It works similarly to the other Diaper Dekor's product - you just need to step on the pedal, drop the diaper and you're done!
