Re: wet pail or dry pail

question for those of you who use the mini-shower thing. Where do you spray the poop off into? Does the shower thing reach to the toilet? Are you doing it in the bathtub? (eww-gross thought to me) Just curious as I've never done the spray off thing.

Both.

Poopy and overnight dipes get wet pailed after a good spray-down (into the toilet, Ellen - my mini-shower attaches to the water line for the toilet). Everything else is dry pailed.

ETA: I wash every 2-3 days.

The one I have is from the recent co-op and it's actually a bidet. It attaches to the toilet tubing and yes, it goes right into the toilet. I guess mini-shower is a little misleading.

Re: wet pail or dry pail

Dry and no stink. I have a pail liner inside of a "pop top trash pail" and it works great

Re: wet pail or dry pail

We wet pail in the summer, wash every 2 days, and mostly dry pail in the winter. I find that in the summer if I don't wet pail, the amonia builds up quictly and they stink after a while.
Winter is cooler and they dont stink as much then.

Fot those who dry pail..... how do you wash your dipes to keep them from stinking? what detergent and how hot the water ect?

(not to hyjack the thread or anything)

Re: wet pail or dry pail

We do dry.

I have a large hanging bag that hangs in the closet by the bathroom.

We only let the toddlers poop...plop into the toilet. We never spray or scrap or anything. The baby's diapers go in as is.
We never have problems with smell in the house or even in the closet with the bag.

We wash every 2-3 days.

We like to keep things simple!

I put them in on the Cold/Cold on a "Quick Wash" setting.
This is when I add 1 tblspn cheap liquid detergent and a few drops of TTO

Then I do a normal length wash on HOT/Cold and sometimes during this wash I'll add a downy ball of vinager or some baking soda or add nothing
I also turn on the Extra Rinse setting

That's usually it!

Every few weeks I'll run the Quick Wash on Cold/Cold then on HOT before the normal cycle and add 2 tblspns detergent

TIP to get the water hotter faster just before turning on the washer run the closest faucet to the washer until it's hot. This gets the cold water out of most of the line to the washer.
