It’s a stinky job but we all have to do it. Why not try to make it as pleasant and painless as possible? Here’s an intro to our two best diaper pails – they’re both terrific in slightly different ways, so hopefully this will help you choose the one that will best meet your family’s needs.
This stylish powder-coated steel diaper pail is a breeze to clean, and the unusual oval shape will help you squeeze it into a tightly-packed urban nursery. Steel is a non-porous material which does not absorb and retain odors, and the Ubbi Diaper Pail does a great job at keeping odors from invading the rest of the house, too: rubber seals plus a sliding lid seal distinctive aromas safely inside. And there’s no need to buy expensive diaper pail liners, either: any trash can liner or even a shopping bag will fit nicely!
While it may appear to be made of a standard plastic, don’t be fooled! The Dekor Plus can definitely keep those odors at bay. It’s made with A.B.S. plastic, the same plastic used in medical equipment, protective head gear, and even LEGOs! It won’t pick up nasty odors, it won’t get scratched and gross-looking, and it won’t turn yellow. The unique “Magik” trap door allows a diaper through, then quickly re-seals to keep odor from escaping; the lid itself provides a secondary silicone seal for double odor protection. A powder-scented refill is a third line of defense against smells.
And forget about all the twisting and pushing required in a typical diaper pail: just step on the pedal, drop in baby’s latest masterpiece, and forget about it. The Diaper Dekor Plus pail holds up to 60 newborn diapers which means less trips to the trash can, perfect for apartment-style living. You can buy specific liners for your Dekor diaper pail, or a regular kitchen trash bag, and we really like their liners – they are biodegradable, and just one roll of liner will hold up to 1160 newborn diapers.
