Storing Dirty Diapers

Some disposable diaper pails can be also be used with cloth, but some can’t.  I use a Dekkor with a wet bag pail liner (Dekkor now makes a Plus model that is bigger and they market it for cloth).  Ubbi even accommodates cloth with its own liner (but any could be used).  Using a Diaper Genie with cloth takes some finagling, but here I’ve located a video tutorial and a picture thread to help with the transition.  I also travel with a large Planet Wise wet/dry bag.

Some say, though, that the best method for storing cloth diapers is in an open hamper with lots of air holes.  The air circulation supposedly keeps down the stink.  If you use an open pail, choose one with no holes in the bottom and and no holes a couple of inches up.  If you choose not to wring out your poopy diapers after they’ve been sprayed off, you don’t want that water puddling on your floor.
