    Confused Diaper Genie?

    Advertisements
    So I have the Diaper Genie II Elite and it worked great for the first few months, but now I've been using it almost 5 months and any time there is a muddy diaper in there, it stinks up the genie. It doesn't smell unless I open it to put in a diaper. Anyone else with one have a similar problem? Any suggestions as to what I can do to help with the smell? Thanks in advance!

    What I'd suggest is to place soiled diapers in grocery bags and place them directly into the garbage can. If you allow a soiled diaper to just SIT in the Diaper Genie, naturally it will cause a stench...lol!

    If it stinks when I open it, I change out the bag. DS' diapers are so big now that I'm usually changing it out every other day anyways.

    As stated naturally it will stink if you leave diapers with poop in them in the genie. It does pretty good (normally) with keeping the smell contained to the genie unless open, but it can not take the smell away. Nothing but throwing them away will do that.
