Do you use a trash can with a washable liner, a bucket, the washer? What do you do about those really stinky, dirty poops? Do they sit in the diaper pail until it's time to wash? I am just getting into CDing my MIL bought me a bunch of fuzzybunz and at $20 a pop I am determined to use them until they are a thread!! So I need a good way of keeping them to prevent the uriney smell from forming and I just don't know what to use as a good diaper pail. Right now we just throw them in a laundry basket and the really poopy ones go into the washing machine for a rinse off, but I would like one central location that they all end up in. I just don't want it to stink up my house-KWIM? So what do you do?

With my first, we just used a cheap trash can with a step pedal. No seal or anything on the lid. We used regular cloth laundry bags from target to line the trash can. As you can imagine, the inside of the pail got a little moisture on it, and we'd clean it out when smelly. We CD'd in the summer with no central air, and very little problem with odor. We kept the can in the baby's room with no problem. With the pure bf poo, the poopy and urine diapers all into the pail to go in the wash. When we started solids, we would shake off the poo into the toilet and put in the can with everything else. About 2-3 days we would wash (usually dh). With the new one due in Oct, I got some whammie's pail liners that should be water proof. The diaper pail liner also has a cloth tab on the inside to put a nice smelly oil if need be!

I just have a 5 gallon bucket that I throw my diapers in. (I say I, but dh does on occasion, too) I do usually rinse the poopy ones in the toilet first. We wash every 3-4 days, and our's tends to smell the 3rd day or so, but as our bathroom doesn't dry very well, I think that is more the problem than the type of diaper pail.<br><br>

I use a whammies liner in a tall mesh laundry hamper (collapsible type). All the diapers go into the hamper. Every other day I dump them into the washer along with the liner. I invert the liner and use it to shove them evenly around the washer. After everything is clean and dry, I use the mesh hamper to transport things back upstairs. I have an additional liner to use while one is in the wash. A little bit of baking soda sprinkled in with dirty diapers sometimes helps with odors if necessary.

I have a plastic diaper pail (but a regular trash can would work too) lined with a reusable diaper pail liner (I have an extra liner on standby). Wet diapers go directly in the pail, unless we're on vacation or otherwise will be going for a long time between washings, in which case I rinse them. Poopy diapers are rinsed in the toilet with my beloved minishower, then put in the pail. At diaper laundry time, I take the pail liner out of the pail and turn it inside out in the washer and push all the diapers inside so I don't have to touch them. Works for us.

I actually handwash poopy diapers with Dawn before I thrown them in the pail. I do this for two reasons:<br>
I think it's unsanitary and disgusting to have diapers floating in poop sludge, and the most important reason...my toddler is very constipated so I give him mineral oil every day. This makes his poopy oily and it leaves a nasty orangy stain on the diapers, which come out wonderfully with a little Dawn dishwashing liquid. A lot of extra work, but I couldn;t imagine just throwing the poopy diaper as is into the pail.<br>
Am I the only one that does this????

I use baby soap, but I also wash out my poopies in before I pail. I just HATE HATE HATE stains. And it gets SMELLY if I don't<br><br>
I just recently got a wahmies pail liner. Man, that thing is great. I used to pull them out with tongs. Now I just invert it while I put it in. I touch nothing!

I never totally handwashed my dirty diapers before putting in pail but I totally rinse them out till there isn't any thing left I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty I'd rather wash them then have the diapers sitting icky in the washer..

We have a cheap plastic garbage can that sits beside our toilet. We use BG 2.0s exclusivly. For wet diapers, I just pull out the liner, and drop them into the can. For poopy diapers, I pull out the lining, drop it in the pail, spray off the BG and then spray it with Biokleen Bac Out, and drop it in the pail. Maybe spray a couple shots of bac out in the pail for good measure and to keep the smell down.<br><br>
So far its worked wonderfully!! But, DS is still ebf, so who knows what my routine will be once hes on solids!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

We do a XL wetbag from SMAJE (Love it!!!!), wet diapers get thrown in there, dirty diapers get rinsed then thrown in. We wash every other day.
