What do we all want in a pail liner? I mean besides one that will magically wash and dry the cloth diapers that go in it ;) We want it to be completely leak-proof, durable, roomy and for it to not fall into the pail when a diaper is dropped in.
Check. Check. Check. and Check.
Oh, and we want it to be affordable. Check.
Really you could get all those characteristics in a few different brands but how many can you find that will control odor?
Kissaluvs new antibacterial pail liner is probably my most favorite cloth diapering accessory. And that’s saying a lot when we’re talking about a plain white bag! But, I’m sure you are wondering about the whole “controls odor” thing.
A pail liner to hold soiled diapers is a must for cloth diapering. And, we have the
perfect one for you- that provides non- wicking, bacteria-free and odor-control storage!
Made from a high quality PUL (poly urethane laminate) fabric with a special
anti-microbial* effect, the Kissaluvs Antibacterial Pail LinerTM lets your diapers sit another day or so, worry free, without collecting gunk! The special finish also helps reduce unpleasant odors and protects against the spreading of health hazardous bacteria which can sometimes collect on soiled diapers.
Here’s how I put Kissaluvs Antibacterial Pail Liner to the test. When we got back in town Sunday night from our Thanksgiving vacation, I found my new pail liner at my door step (thank you, Kissaluvs, for donating one for me to test out!). I pulled it out and threw it on the floor in the middle of my living room.
And it sat there for 3 days. Collecting all sorts of yummy, dirty cloth diapers. No pail, no rinsing, just there on my floor. Sure, I loosely gave the top a twist so it wasn’t completely open.
But you know what? Not one single person said anything about a bag full of dirty cloth diapers sitting on the floor. Why? Because 1) it didn’t smell like dirty diapers, like all the other pails/bags I’ve left laying around and 2) because kids just don’t really care if there’s a bag sitting in the middle of the floor.
When I started tossing cloth diapers in the bag I didn’t think about “performing an experiment”. I just needed somewhere to put the cloth diapers while I tackled an insurmountable laundry pile. It wasn’t until 3 days later when Sterling was on the last cloth diaper that I realized there was no smell coming from the bag.
Why was there no smell?
*Our PUL has been specially treated with SILVERPLUS® antimicrobial effect, which is Okeo-Tex Standard 100 compliant.
Moisture in diapers is ideal biosphere for bacteria, which exploit the organic content of the moisture. The degradation of this exploitation is associated with unpleasant odors. SILVERPLUS® silver ions which are embedded in the fabric in a resistant-to-washing and
dry-cleaning manner, without using a binder or adhesive system, protect against the spreading of health hazardous bacteria and form
a reservoir to counteract odor. Many products with antimicrobial effects migrate from the textile onto the skin to then attack it. SILVERPLUS® has developed its antimicrobial effects exclusively on the textile surface. The hygienic effect develops on the textile, leaving the skin fully functional. This has been confirmed by the independent test institute ITV Denkendorf.

Pretty sweet! You’ll be glad to hear that I no longer have the bag in the middle of my floor. Once I gained some sense of order to the house the bag actually went in the pail as a liner. It’s been collecting cloth diapers since Wednesday in a closed pail and I don’t have odors coming out (I did toss some pail powder in which I only randomly do when I notice it sitting there on the dryer).
I use a small-ish pail for cloth diapers and although the liner is way big it still fits. Here’s a post about my cloth diaper pail.
Suggested retail price is $14.95. Can’t go wrong there. I recommend buying one. I didn’t use a liner before but now I can’t see not having one.
