    Too Small for Cloth Diapers

      Comments about Simple Step Diaper Pail:

      This pail is small! I purchased the Kissaluvs pail liner and it was way too big. I could see it working for disposable diapers with a small trash bag liner, however if you are cloth diapering it is simply too small to hold very many diapers. I will be returning it.

        Comments about Simple Step Diaper Pail:

        We live in a small apartment in NYC and wanted a small diaper pail to fit in our very small nursery. It tucks perfectly into the corner next to the dresser/changing table, and I love the step-open feature so you don't have to touch anything nasty. I also love how it takes standard size trash bags. Simple design, works great. When this size pail is full it's probably time to take out the trash anyways, right? I breastfeed so the smell has never been bad or required any deodorizer and the tight fitting lid has been more than adequate.

        Why is this so small?

              Comments about Simple Step Diaper Pail:

              I want to love this product, and I actually think the design is great but it's just too small. I wish it was twice the size then it would be perfect. With cloth diapers and cloth wipes, I can't see it fitting enough in to wash every 2 days. I'm giving it 3 stars because the design is great, but I just don't think this works for me. I'll be returning it.

              This would probably be better for someone using disposables as I don't think they need as much space.

              Too small & foot pedal doesn't work well

                Comments about Simple Step Diaper Pail:

                This pail only holds about 9 prefolds & a couple covers before you have to start stuffing them down to try to cram more in. Also, the foot pedal will only lift the lid about an inch if you have a pail liner in there. Even without a pail liner, you need to have the pail firmly against a wall or other object because when you step on the pedal, the whole pail slides away from you. I wish I had just gone to the store & got a regular 13 gallon trash can for the same price.

                I plan to use this product for soiled cloth diapers once my baby arrives in eight weeks. The product itself was sturdy and the foot pedal worked well, but I'm giving it 2 out of five stars because it arrived to me scraped up and dirty. I would hope that the shipper would do a better job of maintaining its items. This discourages me from recommended any of my friends purchase items out of fear that they may arrive damaged, scraped, or dirty.

                  This is a GREAT pail for doing cloth. It holds 3 days worth of diapers, which is perfect for laundering time. The foot pedal that opens the top still works fine with my thick PUL Planetwise pail liner installed. The pop out built into the lid fits the arm&hammer nursery air freshener packs perfectly, which REALLY help keep all odors in check. Highly recommend.

                    I use cloth diapers and find this pail to be the perfect size. It holds about 16 pocket diapers and liners, but it doesn't take up too much room. I was unsure what liner to buy because I wanted a re-usable liner that I could throw in the wash. I bought the Kissaluvs liner and it fits great! You can still use the foot pedal even with a liner and the liner prevents the inside of the pail from getting dirty. I highly recommend both products!

                      I bought this pail to use for cloth diapers, so haven't used it with bags. It is so easy to use! The step-opener makes it so we don't have to touch the wet diaper insert, we just take it off the baby and shake it in the pail. I have not had any issues with smell, even though I have not used any deodorizers. When it comes time to wash diapers (I wash every-other day,) I take the whole pail to the machine and dump it in and then rinse out the pail and allow it to air dry while my diapers are washing, and this seems to do the trick, although you could easily use some soap and dry it if you needed to use it right away.

                                I bought this item because I didn't need something huge. It holds a good amount of diapers and is the perfect size for me.

                                The only problem I've had is that when I recieved it, the foot pedal kept slipping out every time I pressed down with my foot. I tried it all the different ways I could but it would happen every time.

                                However, rather than send it back, I just bought two little screws and attached them down the bottom to the pedal and that seems to have done the trick.

                                Overall - not bad, a good price, and I would buy it again.

                                    I really like this pail. The only "con" is the lid lifter thing is in the way if you use a liner or bag. I just use a [...] bag, cut the handles at the seam, and then put each part of the handle over a corner and WaLa! I really do like this pail, it's a good size for what I want. I don't like leaving stinkies sitting around.

                                        I bought one hesistantly because the other reviews state it is pretty small. Overall, I am very pleased with it. The pedal is soooo convenient and it keeps the stink in. We use cloth diapers which are pretty bulky, so it fills up quickly. However, we wash diapers every 2-3 days anyway because we don't want stinky cloth diapers sitting around any longer than that. The worst thing I found about the design is the pocket for the deodorizer is under the lid. We bought the "For every baby odor" (odor absorbing gel) recommended by a previous poster and the humidity from the diapers causes the gel to drip onto the diapers. So, that part is messy and less than optimal but I am going to continue to use it becuase it really does smell nicer than urine and poo. Overall, I do recommend this pail it is honestly quite cheap and is a good value. I bought a second one by the way to put my disposables, diaper liners with poo, and wipes in because as I said it does a good job of containing the stink.

                                            Not to big not to small just the right size for a nursery. Love the deoderizer compartment I just added my favorite absorbing gel (Soap.com has a great one for babys room) and no odors. Lide snaps on to create a ceil and the foot operated lift system is very convienant. Thought the price was great for this wonderful product.
