Any thoughts on the BEST diaper pail?

I really like the Graco Touch Free Diaper Pail but have not found many reviews for it.

Thanks so much, ladies!

  • I dont think any of them work. Just put the diaper in a plastic bag and toss it in the trash .... diaper pails are a waste of money

  • I haven't heard of a diaper pail yet that really keeps out all the odor except the ones that make you buy separate disposable bags that cost $5 every couple diaper changes. I just toss em in a plastic grocery bag and throw them out in the trash can outside.

  • A $20 trash can with a tight lid. Honestly the only time I smell it is when I open it. And if you take it out often you won't smell much of anything anyway. When I'm done with diapers I can move it to a room and use it forever as a trash can.

  • I love my diaper genie. I've never had any problems with it. They're $19.99.

  • My son has some stinky diaper's and we have the Diaper Champ. The only time i really smell the diapers is when i place in it. Plus i just use my trash bags from my kitchen so i don't have to buy special bagss

  • Diaper champ is good because you don't have to spend extra money on inserts, it just holds a regular trash bag. With a toddler it gets a tiny bit stinky, but just when you put a diaper in -- you don't smell it all the time. We just spray ours with Oust when we change the bag and it recovers just fine.

  • Arm and Hammer has a new diaper pail out, it has a little bulb in the bottom that releases a burst of baking soda when you open it and it twists to keep out the stink, I have one at the post office I need to go pick up, and I'll update with my personal opinion, but other CMers that have this one say it's way better than any other diaper pail they've used.
