How to store dirty diapers

Dirty diapers in the pail

The dirty diapers is being stored in a pail with a lid. It is recommended to line the pail with a pail liner (waterproof and washable bag). This will make it easier to transport all the dirty diapers to the washing machine without having to touch the diapers.

Note that cloth diapers do not need to soak in water – it is better for them to be stored as dry as possible.

Recommendations for diaper pail

Knodd” eller ”Filur” buckets from IKEA can easily be used as cloth diaper pails, and the WeeCare Pail liner fits perfectly in both. Chose the size that is 40-45 L – it matches the room in a normal 7 kg washing machine.

“Filur” is good if you want to be able to place a diaper in the pail with only one hand.

Storing of dirty diapers when going out

When you are outside the house and away from the diaper pail, you can easily bring with you a small wetbag. In this one you can store 4-6 cloth diapers until you are back home again. The small wetbag is closed with a zipper and it keeps all smell inside the bag. When you are back home you simply place the wetbag with diapers in the pail liner.

Rinsing the diapers?

It is not necessary to rinse the diaper with water before you place it in the pail liner, and WeeCare does not recommend it. Only make sure to remove any solids from the diaper. Read more in “What to do with the poop”.


Keep the lid closed and it will only smell in the pail – not in the room 🙂
