Cleanly designed diaper genie to replace our stinky Ubbi diaper pale
on September 14, 2017
I used to have the Ubbi diaper pale, which I paid a pretty penny for from one of those boutique baby stores. I'll say that the former unit held a lot of diapers and had a solid construction. That said, that's where the wonderful times ended with that one. My husband and I were sick of the overall stink of our unit and the small, we ordered this diaper genie in hopes that it would solve the smell problem.
SO -- not only does the nursery smell good, but it's hands-free which seems like a given, but not all diaper pales do this. The bag system is easy to use. I recommend double knotting the bottom bag and pulling it taught. It blends into a well decorated nursery well. I was worried it would look cheap or obtrusive and it looks just fine. The other nice thing is that it's plastic and you can spray it down with glass cleaner or even hose it down if you end up with a crazy toddler moment.
If I had to find any issue with it, it's that it fills up quickly and needs to be emptied and uses its own proprietary bags. This is also a blessing, bc the diapers don't sit in there for too long. It's probably only noticeable to me, b/c my previous diaper pale held about twice as much.
