Wink CD'ing is only gross about 5% of the time...

....this is my latest conclusion, I thought I would share it here.

2% when the diaper sprayer "splashes out"
2% a "really full" diaper pail when you have to smell it as it goes in the washer
1% poo may smell worse sitting in cloth (right before a change)...I'm still debating this one
=5%

Edit...okay, I had to get up and get the power cord to my laptop and saw 2 wet BG's that hadn't made their way to the pail yet (gross)...so I would like to amend my first calculation to:
.5% poo may smell worse in cloth and
.5% random wet BG's sitting around
=1%

I'm standing firm on the first two items, I do believe that they deserve the full 2% each. I have actually gagged a few times in these situations...spraying out a really nasty poo and dumping the pail into the wash.

I have learned to hold my breath while dumping the pail into the wash - I actually do this unconsciously now - and it has made that part a lot better.

Do you use an open pail? I used to use a closed pail and now I use a hanging pail that I don't zip all the way and it is way less stinky than the closed pail for some reason.

Re: CD'ing is only gross about 5% of the time...

I think I'm a total freak.. because I use my bare hands to dunk and splash the poopy diaper in the toilet. I sanitize my toilet every day---but, yeah, I find it much more effective to just get in there and get it off, then use some soap on my hands and wrists.... I mean, I changed the diaper, didn't I?

ETA: My diaper pail doesn't stink at all.. but it used to before I started using Bac-Out with every wash.

Wow, hands in the toilet. Super momma. I just scrub it in the sink. I am not that bold yet. It gives me a reason to bleach the crap outta my sink everyday.LOL

Yep, this was me about 10 minutes ago. DD had a poop that resembled nothing more than potting soil(gotta love blueberries!), and it was in no way ploppable. Flush a few times, scrub, wring, walk back to the diaper pail, and then scrub like a surgeon.

My cloth diaper pail has never smelled as bad as my sposie one did. Chemical perfume combined with ammonia...
