So I never used a PUL diaper pail liner until this month (gasp). When I started cloth diapering I used three small Swaddlebees wet bags that pulled closed and hung them on a drawer knob or door knob. Then I bought my first zippered wet bag and was converted to those, purchasing a few more in different sizes and brands. I figured I could use zippered wet bags for wet clothes and dirty shoes when my kids are older so it was a good investment.
I wasn’t searching for another option as these large zippered wet bags worked great for me. I would just set them on the floor next to the changing table. Then this ADORABLE baby monkey print from Wahmies caught my eye, particularly when I saw a picture of one a pail liner in this new print. Then I thought of all of you. “I need to review a pail liner for my reviews and resources section, I thought” so you guys could get my spin on all of the diaper storing options out there and make the best choice(s) for you. I loved my mini Wahmies wet bags and I trusted Wahmies products.
There are many ways to store diapers until wash day and I don’t know why I didn’t use a pail liner earlier! You can use these in a regular lidded trash can, so you might already have one and can use the trash can somewhere else in your house after diapering years. Pail liners fit in different sizes of trash cans, but I would recommend a 13-gallon size (kitchen size). I just took my pail liner to Target to try it on different lidded cans and ended up getting a 13-gallon step can in black to blend in with her black furniture.
I still use my zippered wet bags on “day 2” because I only have this one pail liner, however, anxiously await my liner to finish going through the wash! I am seriously considering a second one and I can use the zippered wet bags for when I’m out of the house. If you get a step-on trash can, you can toss the diaper in quickly without accidentally touching other soiled diapers, which I love. Wahmies also sews in small squares of flannel in the seam so that you can add a drop or two of an essential oil without getting the oils on the actual diaper fabrics. Suh-weet. I love this feature as tea tree oil has antibacterial properties or a lavender oil may help keep the unpleasant odors under control.
Did you know the prints and outside colors for pail liners go on the INSIDE in the trashcan? So it seems inside out, but this is so you can look at the beautiful pattern while tossing in a dirty dud……I never even thought about it, but it makes sense.
I highly recommend pail liners to mamas who have the space/make the decision to store your diapers in a diaper pail. Wahmies make a high quality product and think through to the little details like the flannel fabric for essential oils and adorable patterns to bring a smile to your face when you’re doing chores. Oh and they also have a elastic handle so that you can grab onto it while lugging it to the laundry room or keep little hands out if it’s not in the diaper pail by cinching the bag closed.
