Everything You Need to Know About Diaper Pails

A diaper pail is the best place to store dirty diapers until garbage day. These modern devices offer a practical, space-saving solution for keeping your baby’s room or another diaper changing area in your home clean and odor-free until you take out the trash. 

How Does a Diaper Pail Work?

A diaper pail is basically a garbage can that’s specifically designed to store dirty diapers (both disposable ones and cloth ones) and is a fabulous investment for new parents. The main feature that differentiates a diaper pail from a regular trash can is that diaper pails are sealed to prevent unpleasant odors from escaping into (and stinking up) your home. 

Diaper pails can temporarily block the inevitably unpleasant odor of dirty diapers for several days at a time. A good diaper pail will effectively seal in the not-so-fresh odor and reduce the number of times you need to take out the diaper garbage.
