    Waste of money! I bought one and never got it out of the box, ended up selling it on eBay.

    Default Nappy bins, essential item or waste of money?

    I honestly don't think I'd use it with disposable..

    I use cloth nappys and an old school bucket, always empty the **** in the toilet though, don't want it stinking up my house

    For us, this was the same level of smell as using the nappy bin to begin with, just a LOT cheaper.
    Thing is, that's less convenient than what I currently do.

    I really don't want to scrape poo off nappies. That adds an extra step with a big yuck factor. I also find shoving everything in the nappy bin without wrapping first to be most convenient, quicker, and easier.

    I agree nappy bins cost a bit more, but I'm happy to pay it for what I find to be less messy / simpler.

    Each to their own.

    I think they're a waste of money, i have a friend who's got one and it literally stinks of dirty nappies even when its emptied.

    I agree there.
    When I worked in daycare we had twins in cloth nappies and I had to flush the poo and that memory scarred me for life Lol when I had DS it was poo in nappy, fold the nappy and BE GONE POO!

    You do realize that legally you are supposed to flush poo even with disposables right? Fecal matter is not meant to go in the rubbish, it's meant to be flushed. Ask any council. Plastic materials aside, it's not cool to send poo to the tip for someone else to deal with. It's really not hard to flush it.

    What about the poo explosions? What are we supposed to do with pet poo? I bag that and put it in the bin. Are we technically supposed to flush pet poo too? If so, why arent there public toilets in every dog park for owners to collect and flush?

    Honest questions because now I am curious.

    Pet poo is different I believe because it doesn't carry the same potential for serious diseases that human waste does.

    For explosive poo I can usually still tip most of it out, I may grab a handful of toilet paper to scrape the rest off.

    Not saying its not gross cause it is, lol.

    A claim often made on here. Can you please provide proof?

    Actually on second thought pet poo is probably just as bad and should be flushed too.
