I was so excited to review the hanging diaper pail from SnuggyBaby. This beautiful diaper pail design is called Espresso Blossom and I LOVE IT. I really wanted a wet bag that could hold a lot of diapers and had a zipper for travel and when we stay at other people’s houses. We normally use just a drawstring wet bag that fits into a garbage can but it is not super portable.
So when I got this in the mail to review I couldn’t wait to try it out. I hung it on two hooks in my laundry room that just happened to be the right width apart and started putting dirty diapers into it.
It is made very well and is just so pretty that I don’t mind it being out in the open (even though it contains dirty diapers). It is waterproof and the smell stays in. Our laundry room is right next to our kitchen and the only time you even had a hint of smelly diaper was when you had to un-zip it to put another diaper in. But as soon as you zipped it back up there were no issues.
It was very easy at the end of my 4-5 days of putting diapers into it to just unzip and dump it into the washing machine. I turned the bag inside out to make sure the inside got a good washing. I hung it to dry with my covers. I did find it took a bit longer than my other wet bags to dry because of the cotton like material on the outside, but I also hang dry in my living room. This was the only downside I found to the bag, and it is not really an issue since I have other wet bags to use while it is drying. It would not take long to dry outside in the sun, and it took like a day to dry inside.
Stefan didn’t like that he had to unzip the bag to put the diapers in, since he normally only has to lift the lid off of the garbage can. But I tested it in our garbage can and it fits fine. So when we use it at home we will just put it in like a garbage bag and when we travel we can use it with the zipper. I am really looking forward to using it at our campgrounds this summer.
- Is really big and can fit a lot of diapers (5 days worth at least)
- Has a zipper and keeps in odours
- Comes in really pretty designs
- Can either be hung or put in a garbage can
- Washes up nice
- Did I mention it is pretty?? Because that is important.
- Takes a little longer to dry when you are inside drying it
- The price is a bit steep for my poor blood ($45) but the product is made well, and is pretty and has a zipper…this con is turning into a pro…
- well I guess it is just those two things, and the second one was not a very good con.
