trash bags for pail liner?
Ummmm, newbie here... I have cd but no pail liners yet. Can I start with trash bags or will the diapers mold in those?

you can but its not necessary if you have some kinda pail you really dont need a liner. I bought two liners but really I use one as a regulat laundry bag for dirty clothes and the other is jsut stored away. I just toss the diapers into the pail.
Ive read a few stories of diapers accidently getting tossed out when trash bags were used as well.

That's what I've used for the past two and half months UNTIL last night when my husband accidentally threw out 1-2 days worth of cloth diapers into the trash. So I'd recommend going with a pail liner or something that won't get mistaken. But it might be alright if you have a dedicated pail (mine were just sitting next to our sposie pail). I've seen pail liners online for as little as $16.

I wouldn't do it. I lost a diaper once and there was a post just today about someones husband throwing out diapers because he made a mistake. Its not only better for the diapers to breathe and not stink up in a pail liner but its visual re-inforcement that this is not trash! I have a plaent wise pail liner and highly recommend it. I've been suing it for 3 years at least.

Garbage bags are dangerous - WAY to many of them get mistaken for trash and tossed. Alva has pail liners for $9 and free shipping - at that price, it's not worth the risk!

You can also use a pillowcase inside a pail.
