I just got some new fireflies today <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> and in reading through the instructions (duh) Lori recommends a wet pail in addition to the dry pail. It sounded like a good idea. I was wondering if many people use them and where you get a wet pail and a wet bag? I'm assuming it's quite different from my dry pail and bag, right???????????????<br><br>

I just restarted using a wet pail again.<br>
We recently moved to an Apartment, and I'm not able to sun things much now. I really have *issues* with stains, and for me nothing works better than a wet pail.<br><br>
I still have a dry pail for all the pee dipes, I have an Umbra flip-top lid garbage pail.<br><br>
For my wet pail I use a small bucket with a very tight lid. ( It was actually a bucket that the kitty litter came in). I keep it right next to the toilet.<br>
I put in a splash of either washing soda, or oxy clean. No wet bag though...I thought a wet bag was a waterproof bag for dirty dipes. Or a pail liner for a dry pail ( which I use).<br><br>
Not sure though...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> I learn something here every day!

I use a dry pail, but on occasion, about once a week, ds will have a REALLY bad poopy day. I fill up the washer in the soak cycle with cold water and baking soda and leave it sit there till I feel like dealing with it (usually the next day or later that evening) OH, but after doing this you have to run another rinse or something (I use bleach) with no laundry to get the ring out of that washer <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I have used a wet pail before. I just filled up my pail with cold water adn sprinkled baking soda inside. that was it. But, I'm happy doing the dry pail instead.

I was thinking of trying this, too. For the wet pail, she recommends something with a toddler-proof lid and if I recall correctly, she said you did not need a liner. On wash day you would empty the water into the toilet and wring out the wet dipes, throw them into your dry pail liner with the dry pail diapers in it already, and then tote it all to the washer.<br><br>
So, I suppose all you would need is another pail with a toddler-proof lid.<br><br>
And she recommends Bac-Out, too. I've been meaning to try that as well.

For the days I feel like using a wet pail:<br><br>
I fill my pail up with cold water and baking soda. Soak diapers.<br><br>
When I'm ready to wash:<br><br>
I dump everything in to the washer and do a spin cycle<br>
Then I do my regular wash routine <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Works for me!
