Cloth Diapering

How do you store poopy diapers before wash?

I do laundry every other day. If he poops on a day I'm not doing laundry I can't find a good place to store the diaper without making the whole room smell like baby poop!

I've tried a pail with Pul liner, PlanetWise wet bag, rinsing in the toilet, etc.

What do you do with poopy dipes while you wait to wash?

Re: How do you store poopy diapers before wash?

  • I've never smelt poop using my pail or just a wet bag, don't know what to tell you....My pail has a slot for a deodorizer disk, maybe get a clip on pail deodorizer to help absorb some of the smell?

  • I just toss them in with the the other diapers. I have a trash can with a lid as a diaper pail, so that keeps the smell contained pretty well. My spossie friends put their extra stinky diapers in ziplock baggies before throwing them in the trash. You could do the same thing with wet bags. Maybe get a couple small ones to put each poopy diaper in. You'll just have to remember to take them out when you put everything in the wash.

  • Do you leave your pail/wetbag open or closed?

    I always left mine open for airflow to the diapers and never have had a smell of any kind.

    Suddenly my life doesn't seem such a waste,
    It all revolves around you.
  • I have 6 wet bags so I put the poopy diapers in one and then when it's wash time I throw the wet bag in with the diapers as well.
  • Pre-solids, we just threw them in the pail (with a Planet Wise pail liner), lid off. Never had a problem with smell.

    Now that he's on solids, we spray in the toilet then toss in the pail, lid off. Again, no problem with smell.

  • Same as above poster, and no smell, I usually spray it with Bac Out too, and leave the lid open.

    This. 

    But a few months ago we moved the pail to the garage.

    Same here.  I have a big drawstring closure wet bag that's clipped to a Command strip hook.  We leave it open so that it's easy to just drop in the dirty diapers during a change. He's EBF, which may have something to do with it, but I've not noticed a smell problem.  We usually wash every other day.

  • Thanks ladies! I've tried open and closed wet bag. We are still pre-solids. Maybe I'm just super sensitive to the smell!
