I have had it with diaper pails. Every 3 months I have to go buy another cheap trash can from Walmart because the spring or clasp breaks on the lid.
I was determined the other day to find a solution that would work for me forever! I know many moms use a hanging wet bag, but I needed something with a lid.
Now this is nothing revolutionary. I did not find the next greatest invention in dirty cloth diaper storage.
However, it was cheap. I picked up a trash can from Walmart that has a simple circular lid that can be locked down on the sides. Depending on the curiousity of your children locking it may not be necessary. I don’t have to lock it at this time.
I love that there are no hinges, springs, or buttons that can break. I also have now set up the diaper area in the guest room/extra play room (because don’t you know that any room somehow becomes an extra play room) so keeping odor to a minimum is required.
For pail powder I recommend a highly raved about mama (on diaperswappers) that I have recently found out lives very near to me! The store is called Little Outlaws and she carries pail powder available in 59 different scents!
I love that other mama’s who use Pail Pardner have reported great success using it as a carpet freshner, in the bathroom trash cans and on dog/cat bed areas. With 2 dogs sleeping in our room I am most definitely interested in this use!
With one less thing to worry about and all the newborn cloth diapers cleaned I am definitely ready to meet my new bundle of preciousness! Send labor vibes my way!!
