I am reasonably sure that the stink (ammonia) is not build up (the dipes do NOT stink until after they have been in the pail for awhile. I just washed my pail really well & let it get a good dry (I was away for 1.5 weeks so it was bone dry) & it smelled just fine. After 1/2 a day the ammonia smell when I open the lid makes your eyes tear. I know urine become ammonia with time so this would happen - but so fast? Does anyone else have this problem?
I don't really want to switch to a wet pail 'cause with a front loader it will mean extra hassle. Any other suggestions?
