Unique pop-up design provides a sleek look that integrates perfectly into any nursery.
Machine washable, dry low or hang to dry (same instructions as the other pail liner brands). Because this has a washable, flexible plastic part in it similar to the plastic part in an underwire bra, be aware of how your machine works. In some machines it might need to be washed gently.
Self-closing top allows diaper to be dropped in, but keeps smells at bay by allowing some air circulation. Made in China.
Shaped like an old fashioned diaper stacker, or perhaps like a dry cleaning clothes bag, this storage for dirty diapers is very functional. Use a hanger (not included) to hang it anywhere without taking up valuable floor space. Since it will get a bit heavy when it is full with laundry, Karen recommends a good, strong hanger such as a wooden one like the one in the picture. A flimsy hanger might bend but if you use two hangers together that works fine. Some plastic hangers have a neck that is too long so the loop strings end up not quite the right length. That doesn't really matter, but a strong wooden hanger is really better, I think. I like this setup for a lot of reasons. I especially like that I can put the diaper in with one hand and that the design allows for enough air in there and enough air circulation to help keep bacteria and stink away, but it's not so open that the stink comes out too much. It's really a good balance between odor containment and air circulation. Air circulation IS really needed. A tightly closed pail is really nasty. All diaper pails need some air. I really love the zippered bottom, too, for emptying it. Remember to zip it back up when you set it up again after washing it. I've forgotten to re-zip a few times (did I not learn the first time I did this?), and guess what happens when you toss something into it when it's not zippered... Sometimes, you just have to laugh when things happen. Now that you know to zip it up, I'm sure you'll remember to zip it up, which is very easy to do.
This is not just for diapers! I have one in the closet near my kitchen. We put our wet, damp and soiled Paper Towel Alternative Cloths, our washable tissues and other kitchen towels (actually Birdseye flat dapers Size Half) in there. Now we have cleaner, fresher kitchen cloths because we have a good, organized place to put the soiled ones, without them getting dank. The older kids are able to put their washcloths, spill-catchers and other things right into our "kitchen laundry bag". Having this near our kitchen has enabled us to use a lot more cloth in the kitchen and far fewer paper towels. It's interesting how having a good place to put the soiled cloths has made such a big difference in our kitchen. It's also a handy place to put all those dirty socks that end up everywhere. I love this thing for my kitchen!

I was confused what "bathtub bottom" meant. I guess I thought it meant there was a mesh liner at the bottom where water from recently rinsed diapers could drip through so the diapers aren't sitting in water, creating a "bathtub" of water at the bottom (lol I guess I was just wishing thats what it was, someone should make that). This just has a zippered bottom, which is fine, but not what I wanted. Others have mentioned that it doesn't get much air inside, and I agree. Plus with the boning inside you can't just toss the bag into the washer on heavy duty with the diapers like I do with my other pail liners. Its made well enough but I dont think its better than just using a bucket and pail liner, its more difficult to wash and I think its more likely to make diapers stinky and moldy if you dont wash fast enough. I wouldnt recommend.
I bought one of these when my first son was just starting out with cloth at 1 month old. I had it in rotation with one other diaper bag for almost two full years with him and then the first full year of my second son's diapering (washing twice with the diapers every other week). Toward the end of its life, the plastic on one side had come out, the seam was ripping, and the zipper was getting wonky. But that is completely understandable given how much use it got! An excellent product that does a nice job containing the smell while still allowing the wet diapers to breathe (I have to use an odor/moisture absorber in the warm humid months). It was absolutely worth the expense to buy a second!
After using it for seven months in rotation with another bag the zipper broke making it useless. For the price that you pay for it the use life is not very long in my opinion. Before the zipper broke i was very happy with it, it did its job well.
We are sorry about the problem with the zipper on your GroVia Perfect Pail after 7 months. This item is still within the one year warranty period so we highly recommend contacting GroVia. Information about the warranty is here: https://www.grovia.com/pages/grovia_warranty
I have a top loading HE machine, and I can see the wear some of the other reviews describe. Mine is not as bad, though. A few minor pulls, but no rips or boning coming out. I really like it. It's easy to use, no smell, and hangs nicely in our bathroom next to the diaper sprayer.
