pail liner help

1st off, do i really really need one? I used a trashbag in a trash can with a lid for last baby. I would dump a handful of baking soda in the bag and would wash every two days or so.

This time... The same trash can is probably still available (i have to find it). Or I have an old diaper genie someone gave me (DH thinks it is a must have too lol).

Should I use a PUL liner? Or a mesh bag liner? Or trash bag? Or no liner? Will a liner work in the diaper genie? **I will not go buy the diaper genie bags!!!**

I can sew either the PUL or mesh bags.... Keep in mind, Finances are super tight, so much that ive had to scrape enough money together over a few months to get our stash of flats, FSOT econobums and FSOT flips together, and two smaller FSOT covers for the early days.

Thanks for you suggestions and help!

Re: pail liner help

If you are going use trash bags, you might as well use a PUL liner because you'd have to keep buying extra trash bags just for diapers. I know some people just use a pail with no liner, but you have to clean it out a lot or it would get funky.

I have also heard of just using a 5 gallon bucket (like from a hardware store) as a diaper pail, as it is just open and ventilates and is easier to clean than a large trash can.

I, personally, use PUL (planet wise) bags and have two that I rotate and are still going strong after over a year.

I don't use one for this one or when I was CD'ing my DD. For my DD, I used a cheap diaper pail and now I am using a $10 trash can with a flip lid and it has been working fine so far.

Re: pail liner help

I dont have an issue with walking out the back door of laundry room and washing out the pail whenever i do laundry...
I wonder if DH will.. He can be so picky sometimes so i never know haha

Is there a better place to keep the pail depending on what type of bag/liner/pail it is?

Im wondering because we live in an old house with tiny bedrooms, a tiny washroom, and we ppl over at our house for business/ministry reasons about 3-4 evenings a week, so while theyre not always inside the house, they do use the bathroom and stuff.

The coops board has Alva Rubbish bags (pail liners) for $5ish, a cheap option . . .
I personally would use a pail liner, but if your okay with washing the pail its not a necessity

I washed our pail out for a while with DD1 but have a liner is so much easier. Diaper Palz is a very affordable WAHM and code DSMAMA gets a discount. We have 2 of hers and they are great.

I wouldn't use a diaper genie, I think you'll have less stink if your diapers get air. I use an old kitchen trash can with no lid and have no smell issues. The diaper pail is in DD's room, we're in an average size apartment. I prefer using a pail liner, but if you just can't afford it then washing out your pail is a good option.
