    Default what do you do with dirty nappies?

    As the title says - what do you do with your nappies? Am I the only person who can't seem to find a way to dispose of them without the bin having a terrible smell every time I open it?
    I've tried bi carb soda, oil, eucalyptus spray, glen 20, bagging, double bagging.
    Are those nappy bin things (nappy genie?) any good - I've heard they still smell? Please help I dread opening the bin now because the smell lingers for such a long time...

    I put the poop in the toilet then put it in a plastic bag and take it out to the big bin outside.

    I hated my nappy bin, it smelt awful. Yuck. It had a very short lifespan.

    I use the HappySack nappy bags from the supermarket and take the nappies straight out to the wheelie bin. My wheelie bins smell yuck anyway from all the rubbish, I don't notice a nappy smell over that.

    I would never put them in a bin inside the house. That stinks out the whole house pretty quickly.

    When we use disposables we bag them in nappy sacks and they go in a lidded bin in the bathroom. We empty it regularly and the bathroom window stays open for ventilation. We use cloth nappies most of the time so the nappies don't really build up.

    DDs poo isn't formed enough yet to just roll it off into the loo. Flushable bamboo liners are awesome for dealing with poop!

    I shake whatever will come off the nappy into the toilet, bag the nappy & wipes, then leave by the front door for when I next head to the wheelie bin. I've found the less that stays on the nappy the better for smell reduction

    I really never had an issue with my sons nappies smelling that much. A friend of mine did though so used to fill a shopping bag with dirty nappies and gave them to her dh to put in their industrial bins. Kind of cheeky but it worked for them
