Help - The room is stinky

I am new to CD as my firstborn is 10 weeks old. I do diaper laundry every two days and keep the dirties in a diaper champ. It seems though that there is always an odor in her room.

So, I am curious, what are methods of dirty diaper storage that work to eliminate the smell? What type of diaper pails, liners, deoderizers, etc. Give me the dirt.

They have deo disks that you can buy to put in the diaper champ.

I use a regular garbage can with a Mother of Eden wetbag that has a little terry strip that you can put essential oils on. I put a few drops of tea tree oil on it, and it seems to keep the stink away. You could always take a wipe or wash rag and put tea tree oil on it and put it in the diaper champ.

Re: Help - The room is stinky

I have heard that the more airtight a diaper pail is the stinkier it is. I use a garbage can (round plastic type) with a SNAP-EZ diaper pail liner in it and don't put the top on. He is still almost EBF but it doesn't stink at all and I think it's because it's allowed to air out.

I have tried different things but the only thing that works for me is washing daily. I'm going to try one of those Snap-ez liners, though.

I don't have any suggestions, but thought I'd add that I do roughly the same thing as the pp and we don't have any odors at all...and ds2 has some exceptionally stinky poo. Like I said, I do ROUGHLY the same thing...meaning, I also have an open container...but it's actually just a smallish/shallow laundry basket...I don' thave a liner or anything...i just wipe it out with a wet washcloth when i take dipes out. If necessary, I'll wipe it out with a cleaning agent.

Re: Help - The room is stinky

just to clarify

I do really love my SNAP-EZ pail liner but it does not help keep the stink away, it is just convinent for taking my dipes to the wash. I think it's the fact that I keep the diaper pail open to the air that helps keep the stinks away.

I use this stainless steel trash can from Target online. Its a little spendy, but some ladies on a small CD board I'm on claimed to love it. It has a 22 liter lift out pail i nside, soyou just carry the pail to the washer. I like it and since its metal, no stink.
