wetbag/pail + liner - pros/cons

I am putting together a list of what we need to start - and am trying to decide on a can + liner or zipper bag

I can see a pail + liner might create smell. true? am hoping to do laundry every 2nd day. 

has anyone done both and prefer one? been looking at thirsties pail liners, planet wise liners, kissa liners, planet wise bags. etsy bags. 

i do like the idea of a zipper to keep smells contained, and the whole "system" would be washed vs a can probably not being washed as often.

thoughts?

Re: wetbag/pail + liner - pros/cons

  • I use a regular kitchen garbage can with a Planetwise pail liner. We haven't had any smell issues at all. I like that the can is free standing and sturdy. I just got one with a step lid so it's super easy during changing time. I don't think the garbage can itself needs to be washed too often because the pail liner does a great job of keeping everything contained. I know everyone has a system that works for them and I hope you find what works for you too.

    This is what we have for each girl's room. I made my own pail liners to fit my trash can. I haven't had to wash out the trash can at all that I can think of since DD was born...We have absolutely no stink issues in the bedrooms until you oepn the lid and stick your head over it. ;)

    thanks!!

    im glad to hear the pail + liner doesnt really retain a smell - this was my first choice as something free standing is preferred since right now DD is on the main floor with us and we dont really have anywhere to hang something that wont be in the way!

  • I have 2 pail liners and a few wet bags.  I love the pail liners in a cheap trash can with a swinging lid... for wet diapers.  The lid lets them breathe just enough and it's hands free- unlike wetbags that have to be zipped and unzipped while lo is rolling all over the place.  But for poopie diapers, there is a little smell.  I like have those placed in the zippered wet bags. That way the smell is contained and I don't have to dig through the diapers to spray the poop ones when I get home.

  • Ditto PP, except we don't even have a lid on our pail.  I've heard that airflow actually helps cut down on smells and so far it's working for us.  I love that the pail is free standing.  I also haven't noticed the actual pail smelling so I haven't washed it since we started (~3 months).  It's easy to just throw the diaper in the pail rather than unzipping a wetbag each time (which is what I assume you would be doing if you use a wetbag, otherwise that defeats the idea of the zipper keeping smells contained).
