Re: Oh the smell (puke)
I exclusively use prefolds and sometimes the pail sure stinks. I clean the pail with soap and water when that happens since the pail is plastic and I think that it holds the stink. I also made deodiscs. I followed a link someone posted somewhere else but basically you just put some essential oils (I used TTO) in a little water and add it to baking soda to make a thick paste. Put it in muffin cups and leave out to dry out overnight. It's made a huge difference in my pail and it cost next to nothing. I used some deodiscs from BRU (got as a gift at my baby shower) and they did nothing but these homeade ones are awesome.
