How can I get rid of the diaper smell that lingers constantly in my house?

I through away diapers on a regular basis (outside)...I wash the laundry practically everyday...and yet my house still smells like diapers. Any tips or tricks would be great.

  • I never had that problem. I use febreeze for other stubborn odors. It works pretty good.

  • Maybe bring the diaper outside every time you change? It's a hassle, but it might do the trick.
