    Default Nappy bins, essential item or waste of money?

    I found mine to be a total waste of money!

    It was easier to walk out to the bin or have a little bin at the back door and empty a couple times a day.

    I think this bin would be great as its the refills that suck you in.

    I was given my bin (munchikin brand?) it cost $80 ten refills are $22.50 for 10. So a serious waste of money!

    Total waste. We were given one but I would rather put it in the outside bin than buy the refills!

    I didn't get one because I didn't like the cost of the refills. What I did instead was buy a 15 litre nappy pail (basically a bucket with a handle and tightly sealing lid from Kmart), lined them with normal bin liners, and use homebrand plastic bags to seal up each nappy and put it in the pail. The lids seal pretty well so the only time you smell anything is when you open it!

    We're still using one for DD at 2.5 yrs (although have to empty every 5 days) and I'm now on the hunt for a larger pail with a similar seal for when bub #2 arrives.

    We just use a rubbish bin with a foot pedal flip top lid - lined with a supermarket shopping bag and emptied every 2 or 3 days. Am still using the same bin after 11 years for DD1 who has a disability and wears nappies.

    Waste of money. Cartridges are so expensive and we went through the first three we bought so quickly. The nappy sacks work just as well.

    I did like mine but the refills are very expensive.

    I didn't bother with it for dd2

    Waste. The angelcare one is stupid, you have to push the nappy so hard through the trap thing you are essentially putting your hand right into a bin of dirty nappies, it's gross. I went and bought a $10 nappy bucket from big w and use normal bin liners. It never smells and is so much easier to use.
