  • I get arm and hammer carpet freshener and sprinkle it in the bottom of the trash can whenever I replace the bag. It helps.

  • BAking soda in the bottom of the diaper pail, beneath the bag, then a half cup in the bag each day. And in summer, empty it more often. The heat really increases the smell.

  • Rinse the pail with white vinegar and water. Then during the day, you could also spray white vinegar mixed with water in a spray bottle into the pail.

    There is also a product that you can get at Sams called Odoban. It works really well and its concentrated so that you add a certain amount of the cleaner with water into a spray bottle. It smells really good and it kills odors. :)

  • Buy cheap ziplocks and put the used diaper in one every time. Or use the plastic bags from the stores.

  • After you clean the pail, sprinkle the bottom with baking soda, then add a fresh dryer sheet to the pail every time you empty it..
