Hi all. Does anyone use one of those special bins for disposable nappies? I have heard mixed reports, with some saying they still smell, and that refills are expensive. If you don't have one, what do you do instead? Thanks

Nappy bins worth it?

I brought 2 one for DDs room and the lounge room (2 story) biggest waste or money!!! I never used either! (did for about a day!! Lol).
We just put them in a normal bin and took them out to the garbage after a day or even a few hours. Heaps easier!! The bins were a PITA to use anyway.

I had one given to me and glad I didn't spend money on it as I hardly used it! It was such a pain to change the cartridge and just seemed easier to walk out to the big bin! But mine was an old version, they may have designed them better now!

i assume you mean the nappy wrapper bins?
they are REALLY terrible for the environment, adding a plastic cocoon to a nappy that already takes hundreds of years to break down, isn't worth the "convenience"
just put them in the bin as is.

Yes they still smell. We have to use them at work (I'm a preschool teacher) the bin stinks even fresh in the morning with no nappies lol
For this reason we just used a small bin similar to our kitchen bin lined with a scented liner same as the kitchen. Than just empty it every day in the Otto

We had one, they still stink, and the cassettes (refills) are stupidly expensive. Once we used all the cassettes that came with it, we stopped using it.

We use bio-degradable nappy sacks. We hang one from the change table then when it is full (5 nappies or so) I take it to the bin.
So easy and the bags smell nice too!

I was given one that doesn't use the cassettes. You just use regular bin liners. It rocks! I wouldn't buy a wrapper one though.

My sil bought a nappy wrapper bin, huggies brand. I have used it with both boys. Very worth it in my opinion especially living in a humid climate. And the bin doesn't smell at all, I spray the bin with lemon deodoriser. The refills actually go a long way so i don't think they are expensive. Stock up when they are on special or buy off eBay.

never considered buying a nappy wrapper i dont see the point. i just buy the biodegradable nappy sacks and then put them in the bin as required. there are so many other things you can buy that are actually useful!!
