What do you use for a diaper pail and do you soak the diapers in something particular?<br><br>
I was thinking about getting a couple 5 gallon pails and then just soaking the dirty diapers in some vinager and water until ready to wash. Will this solution degrade the diapers?

I use a cheap plastic garbage can with a flip top lid that I got at target. I have it lined with a pail liner. I don't put anything in it with the dirty diapers, but I wash every other day. The pail is in my laundry room and only smells when the lid is opened.

The dry pail is definitely the way to go! Easy, not smelly, doesn't require dragging around quantities of dirty water. I use PUL pail liners, and just dump the whole thing in the wash.

In the beginning, I wet pailed poop and dry pailed pee. I just couldn't handle the BM poo stains. Most people dry pail everything and are very happy with it. In the wet pail I would put a little baby wash or Charlie's soap.

Yes, definitely use a dry pail. Soaking is not necessary. <a href="http://www.target.com/Safety-1st-Easy-Saver-Diaper-Pail/dp/B0009A4FBQ/sr=1-7/qid=1200444330/ref=sr_1_7/601-8443722-0694530?ie=UTF8&index=target&rh=k%3Adiaper%20pail&page=1" target="_blank">This</a> is my favorite diaper pail for cloth diapers:<br><br>
I use the pail liners made by Mother of Eden.<br><br>

I agree with these ladies. I use a Bummis tote size large.

a tall metal garbage can with a lid and a plastic bucket insert from target, and a scoop of baking soda to complete the dry pail method.

I have a fuzzi bunz pul bag that hangs on the door knob. I wipe off the yucky poops but after that all the dipes go in the bag. Every 2 days or so, I just flip the whole thing inside out as I toss it in the washer. I wash the bag along with the dipes.
