Two weeks ago, I asked where to put the stink? We were looking for recommendations for a quality, smell-free diaper pail.
We ended up going with the Ubbi in Light Grey.
The Ubbi is made of powder coated steel with rubber seals. Compared to other diaper pails, it has a sliding lid with a child lock instead of a foot pedal. It also has a nice slim profile that fits our small nursery well. The Ubbi holds an average of 35 diapers and is available in 13 colours! Red is missing from the photo below.
Although the Ubbi is the highest priced diaper pail on the market, it requires no special bags or liners which reduces it’s overall lifetime cost. Plus, it’s both cloth or disposable diaper friendly.
In Canada, the Ubbi sells for $99 full price. I had a coupon for $40 off an order of $100 or more on shop.ca. I got our Ubbi for $69.99 taxes in with free shipping.
Honestly, buying a diaper pail wasn’t high on my list of to-do items. The reason I purchased it was due to the recommendation from ExpectingtobeExpecting that it can also be used for pet waste. Our chihuahuas are pee pad trained for when we aren’t home and during the bitter Winters. During my nesting frenzy, I was cleaning out their area and noticed the garage bin we put their pee pads in smelled NASTY!!! Essentially, the plastic had totally taken on the pee/poo smell. This can was over 5 years old and more than due to be replaced. We went to Walmart, Marshalls and Bed, Bath and Beyond trying to find a reasonably priced stainless steel garbage bin with no plastic interior. We couldn’t find anything plastic-free that was less than $150.
When I found the coupon, I convinced my husband that we needed to get the Ubbi to try out for the dogs. Anyway, a few days after ordering it, I found a brand new Ikea Knodd stainless steel bin with a lid on a local online classifieds site for $10.
I picked it up for the dogs and decided to keep the Ubbi for the baby!
