Wet bags

Postby BrandyJ. » Mon Apr 18, 2011 12:02 pm

I know that having a "wet" bucket isn't necessary, but I have a lot of new dipes worn 3 times or so that already stink to me. The laundry room stinks all of the time because of dirty dipes. I keep them in a sealed container. But holy ammonia! I end up washing before necessary because of the smell. I have a bag, bit it doesn't change the smell.

My mom said she had a bucket with detergent and water she kept hers in?!

Any thoughts?

I rinse and then wetpail poopies and overnight diapers with some BacOut until wash day. It has really helped with staining and ammonia in the overnight diapers. I just keep daytime pee diapers in an open diaper pail in the nursery and there is no smell from them.

I have recently started keeping all cloth (prefolds, inserts) in a sealed rubbermaid container with water & a bit of RnG in it & the covers in a wet bag for the same reasons. I used the wet pail method when diapering my dd (only used fuzzibunz then) and it worked fine then. My only problem so far is I think it is wearing out the elastic in the grovia soaker inserts, but I'm not too concerned with that. It has seriously cut down on ammonia issues & I think dipes are getting cleaner now.

Can you rinse them with a diaper sprayer before they get put into the diaper pail? I'm just asking because we bought a diaper sprayer to use for the poopy diapers, but was thinking that maybe giving them a quick rinse with the diaper spray might help with the ammonia too?

I put a couple drops of lavendar tea tree oil in my wet bag. It helps so much.
