The Diaper Genie (http://amzn.to/Tx2jux)
means well, it really does, but it’s more hassle than it’s worth. And when I say hassle, I mean a huge pain in the ass.
To use the Diaper Genie you need to put the dirty diaper into the opening, twist the bag dispenser and then the venus fly trap plastic mouth sort of eats the diaper. Then it pulls the diaper down in the holding tank of disgusting. Most of the time, I would put it in, do the twist and it would close. I’d then go to do it again and the old diaper would still be in there. I’d check to see if it was full and it wouldn’t be. This would lead to headaches and frustration.
I really wanted to like it, I really did. I previously noticed it on everyone else’s baby registry so I thought we HAD to have it too. All the cool kids had one, right!??? Wrong. This was a big, huge waste of money and it sucked all around. I didn’t realize that you had to buy refills (http://amzn.to/WzOsQP ) and that each insert was majorly expensive. In addition, I didn’t realize we’d have to pretty much insert a new insert/refill after every load. Meaning we were burning through refills (and money) every other day.
Bottom line: Don’t waste your money on this! Just buy a regular ole “normal” garbage can (like we ended up doing) and call it a day. http://amzn.to/WzRunX
