Tips on cleaning out a diaper pail?

Our diaper pail smells so bad! I’ve tried baking soda, vinegar, bleach, and leaving it outside to air out none of these have worked! Any other ideas besides tossing it out and buying a new one?


Following!! :nauseated_face: same problem

It’s plastic, so it will pull in all that stench. That’s why I never got one lol


Try soaking it in ammonia overnight, wash out with Dawn dish soap then soak in bleach and repeat the dawn. Used to work on the diaper pail at my old job. Also Awesome brand cleaners really help cut the odor.


Stick a carbon filter to the top on the inside but Lisa is right… it’s plastic and it’ll have a bit of that smell always.

Kennel Odor Eliminator. You can find it on Amazon

I’m not sure what kind you have but I have the Ubbi & it never smells after I take the bag out, super good quality I think!

Stop using it lol i think they are a waste just put the diapers in the trash 🤷🏽


Maybe try the deotoroser beads u get in a container and put it at bottom. I use theze next to my kids hampers

Lemon juice scrub it with fresh lemmons and and dawn soap and let it soak with the lemons in it.(:

Get rid of it. It’s because it’s plastic. Get a regular ol step stainless steel can and regular scented trash bags for it. The stainless steel will contain the smell. And you save money by buying regular trash bags.


I always took the diaper right out to the trash. Only way that works. Diaper pails are a joke


Throw it away and use the trash can. Save plastic bags from the grocery and u can just wrap really nasty diapers.


Put the diaper in a garbage bag and throw it straight into the trash can outside… Saves all the stink hassle and takes just as little time :slight_smile:


Throw it out and just wrap the diaper in a plastic shopping bag and throw it out in the outside pail.


I JUST threw ours away. We put the dirty diapers in the blue diaper bags you get at walmart then put them in the kitchen can because that bag gets thrown out just about every day. The house smells a million times better now.

I flush the poo before throwing away the diaper. Makes a huge difference! Rarely smells.

All the money you are spending on cleaning it, you could buy a new one 🤦

Yes that will do the job for you

Shaving cream. Cover it and Let it sit Then scrub and rinse
