    Default Re: Nappy bins, essential item or waste of money?

    Well I still use mine (baby shower gif t) however I never bought any more cartridges as they are expensive! Such a waste of money. So I'm just using it as an ordinary bin with a shopping bag as the bin liner.

    So any waste paper bin or kitchen tidy bin with a lid would suffice!

    I wish someone out there would make cheap aftermarket liner cartridges for them...

    Default Nappy bins, essential item or waste of money?

    I don't have one and don't need one as you can buy the scented nappy bags, just chuck the dirty nappy in there, tie it up and throw it in a regular bin in the laundry (or other room you can close) until you can go and throw it out in the garbage bin.

    They are just another invention to get you to spend money on something that's not necessary (as with other baby items!!!)

    Default Nappy bins, essential item or waste of money?

    Not essential but I don't think they're a waste. Like others my outside bin is visible from street so I'm not going out there all hours and with dogs who scavenge the kitty litter I'm not leaving them accessible to them. I love mine and only empty around twice a week. No smell.

    For those who don't want to go outside all the time (who would?)... What's wrong with a pail with lid or a regular bin on laundry or similar?

    Yeah exactly this. When we use sposies they go in a bin in the laundry with a tight fitting lid, same as wipes. Cost about $3 probably.

    Default Nappy bins, essential item or waste of money?

    Thanks ladies! I ended up just getting a regular bin that I'll empty daily. With all the money I've spent lately this seemed like an expense I could do without!

    I've never tried those, but I didn't think they'd be as good on the smell front as nappy bins. With nappy bins the individual nappies/ wipes are usually sealed off so that when you open the bin you can't see (or strongly smell) any other nappies. The thought of opening a big pail full of yucky nappies is less appealing to me.

    Most nappy bins either put twists of plastic between each nappy to separate them, or have a sort of clamping entry system so that you can't see or smell them (much).

    And if you're talking about putting them in individual nappy sacks and then into a bin - well that seems a bit pointless. I find nappy sacks a bit more fiddly than throwing nappies/ wipes straight into a bin, and I feel like it's a bit more wasteful (to use nappy sacks).
