Step 1: Supplies
1: A small trash can without a lid
2: Plastic grocery bags, 10 or more that are free of holes.
The grocery bags are ones that I have collected through my many trips to the grocery store and other store that need to be reused in some way, :-)
Step 2: Setting Up the Diaper Pail
trash can with a regular trash bag.
Continue the process of lining the trash can until you have multiple liners in the trash can.
How many liners you can fit will depend on the size of your trash can and on personal preference.
I usually line mine with 10 to 20 bags at a time.
Step 3: Using the Diaper Pail.
1. Stick the diaper in the bottom of the pail.
2. Take the inner most liner (grocery bag) by the handles and tie it closed around the diaper.
3. Push the diaper filled liner (grocery bag) to the bottom of the can.
4. For the next diaper, repeat steps one through three, just throw the next diaper in and use the next inmost liner to seal in the stink!
I personally take these diapers out to the outside trash once or twice a day depending on how many I throw away. This is nice system because I just seal off the last diaper and take the whole bunch
at once out to the trash!
Note: for economy of liners, if I get a diaper that is just wet and does not have much odor, I will
throw it into the pail without sealing the liner around it, until I get very smelly one, then seal multiple
diapers into one bag. However this is at your own discretion of course.
