    Default Nappy bins, essential item or waste of money?

    Waste of money for sure!!!! Scented nappy bags in the other hand are very useful!

    Man, all this hate for the nappy wrapper! I guess it's up to me to single handedly destroy to environment with my kids disposable nappies and my excessive bagging of said nappies.

    We keep a pedal bin with a tight lid by the change table lined with a garbage bag. Wet nappies go straight in and pooey ones go in a nappy sack first. We empty into the outside bin every two days or so.

    I havent read any replies except the ones on this page. Dont worry WineTime, I helped you there.

    I never used one. I changed the nappy, plastic bagged it and put it straight into the outside bin. Sometimes if it was a wet one that wasnt totally drenched, I would just close it up with the velcro tabs (if you've done it you know what I mean) and chuck it straight into the outside bin.

    Sometimes I used to put the nappy in a bag, then in the nappy wrapper, which would then get emptied into a bin bag then put into the bin.

    I also use an alarming amount of ziplock bags and gladwrap though so im a pretty evil person.

    I have started recycling, though!

    LOL! Not one person has said anything about excess waste in terms of the environment. Methinks you have your own special hang up about that. No need to take it out on others

    Yeah...I was joking...and also making fun of myself for using so much stuff re: nappies, plastic bags etc.

    Sarcasm doesn't always come out clearly in my posts.

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).
    Agree

    I think the easiest way to get rid of the smell without running to the wheelie bin each time, without buying a Nappy Bin and without resorting to cloth is simple...

    Tip any poo into the toilet, flush. Wrap the nappy up tightly, securing it with its straps. Place in an individual scented nappy bag. Place in normal, cheap, lidded bin.

    For us, this was the same level of smell as using the nappy bin to begin with, just a LOT cheaper.
