Diaper disposal options

May 04 2011 05:04 AM

I will be having an extended stay at a location with limited space AND limited opportunity to discreetly dispose my wet briefs. Does anyone have experience with Dekor or diaper genie's being used for adult products?

I use large ziplock bags when travelling or staying at someones home, put the used brief and wipes in the bag and seal it up, works great.

Loving life,

Ziploc bags work great and other members have shared that they also sprinkle baking soda into the bag as well to prevent any odor.

I had not thought about baking soda. Thanks! I suppose I then just collect them in a larger trash bag until I can take the trash bag to a garbage can - which I'll have to do by car. I was mainly curious as to whether people had found a convieience at all in a 'system' designed for diaper collection and disposal.

This Just In From "How It Works".
I researched the Diaper Genie and discovered there is a alternate device that anyone can improvise in their own home for adult diaper disposal.
A short description of how the namebrand "Genie" works will help.
You place a childs dirty diaper in the unit and twist the top which seals the diaper into the constant growing sausage like chain. The bag material has a form of odor controlling substance in it very much like some trash bags on the market.

Now to introduce what I call "DIAPER 1" that anybody can make and use at far less than half the cost of the namebrand "Genie" which isn't made for Adult product disposal.

Here is is what you need:

A 5 gallon Pickle Pail with a Sevicable Lid
A pair of "Stick Up" air cleaners or ones like them
A supply of plastic bags that we all collect from shopping these days

Place the Stick Ups in the pail. Attach one to the bottom of the pail and one to the underside of the cover

For disposal roll up the used product and place in a plastic bag. tie a double not in this. Gently squeeze out the air trapped in the bag and place into your DIAPER 1.

Continue to place your bags in with every change and gently compress down with every one to insure maximum fill capacity.

For extra odor containment a dash of baking soda into each bag may be helpful but not a requirement.

To empty the unit simply remove the lid and flip over into a garbage bag.
Wipe the unit out with a household spray cleaner every so often for sanitation purposes.

A new idea to save money and recycle so many of those plastic bags that eventually end up in landfills. With the DIAPER 1 they end up there anyway but with a second life before the do.

P.S.
I have my own DIAPER 1 and it does work well.

True, I use ziploc bags at home all the time. Tie the diaper in a ball and throw it in the bag and always make sure its sealed tight. Works the best :)
