Hello Mommas! How are we doing? And how is the sun induced tan coming along? lol… This Sun has got no chills at all, can’t wait for the rainy season!
So I was going through LIB yesterday and came across this post – Introducing Diaper Genie Elite for nursing parents
I was like are you kidding me!!! How come I never knew something like this existed???
If there is one major issue I have with Bobo’s soiled diapers, it’s the stress I go through daily trying to dispose them . So you can imagine the way my heart did a double back-flip when I read the post. Anyway, after going through all the information provided, I did my own little research to be double sure the product really does all what the manufacturer claims it does and compare price (that’s very key!). Plus reviews from co-mommas already using the diaper pail trash. So here you have it!
Ease of use
The diaper trash is easy to use because of its hands free foot pedal especially in a situation where you have unclean/full hands. Also, the diapers does not get to come in contact with the actual pail so no need cleaning it every day.
Some users’ reviews cited that the foot pedals doesn’t look strong and could easily break.
It does a good job at containing odor when the lid is closed. It has built-in antimicrobial protection in the pail’s plastic which inhibits odor-causing bacteria, and the activated carbon filter.
It falls behind when disposing of a dirty diaper. The same open-throat that makes it so easy to drop in a dirty diaper, provides clear access for a whiff of stinky air to emerge from the bag full of dirty diapers inside the pail every time you add a new diaper to the pot.
Ease of bag changes
Bag changing is quite easy as long as you keep your foot on the pedal during a change. It also helps to prevent the can from tipping over
The top-heavy makes it a bit cumbersome to remove a bag of diapers. Also, having to get the special refill bags to buy could be a small issue and the cost of getting them is not so pocket friendly
Over all, from what I have read from the reviews, I will say it is not a bad one and I’m already “sold out”. I will definitely try and get myself one. However, the only major challenge I foresee will be, having to get the refill. But I might have to improvise with the regular black trash bag (Will try and see how that goes).
