Diaper Pail Dilemma

So I am currently using a Baby Trend Diaper Champ for our diaper pail, with a plastic trash sack inside. This is the system I was using for disposable diapers and have been using it even though I switched to cloth. Well it is silly to use it because I cannot put my cloth diapers through the top flip lid without them getting stuck, so I end up opening the entire top part of the pail which defeats the purpose entirely. The plastic trash sack is due to the fact that I haven't sewn myself a pail liner! I have the fabric it just isn't done!

Anyway, I need to get something else to use for our dirty diapers and I am debabting between using a trash can with a lid, which run about $14 at Target or getting the diaper pail with the carbon filter from Cottonbabies with is $19.95 with free shipping. Any suggestions, thoughts, or ideas? What do all of you ladies use for your dirty dipes? I typically wash every 3 days.

I got the $12 plastic flip top can at Walmart, but found that a combo of NO lid, a little baking soda sprinkled in now and then, and rinsing her night dipes pretty much eliminated the smell. I was extremely skeptical about the no lid thing, but oddly enough it really does help with smell!

Exactly. We have a slimline can with the foot pedal, but I took the lid off. It smells less than with the lid on and it's easy to toss the diapers in!

Re: Diaper Pail Dilemma

Just get the pail from Target. I use and old trashcan we weren't using anymore that's one of those stainless steel step cans. It's short and square so it holds exactly one load. I love it but especially because I didn't have to buy anything LOL. The trashcan will work great and you can sprinkle baking soda or a few drops of EO if it gets stinky. I just wash it out after I throw the diapers in and it's fine and takes 2 minutes tops.

Wet bags work really well too and hold the stink in really well. Just thought I'd mention that. I always get the kind that can snap onto the changing table or door handle so I can have it right there.
