Thirsties Diaper Pail Liner. Sewn in elastic at opening. Fully taped at seams. This prevents wicking at seams. If you dunk or spray off your diapers and don't do a good job wringing them out so they are still dripping wet before dropping them into your pail, such that you pail is quite wet inside, then this is the right pail liner to choose. It really does a better job than other brands in too-wet situations because it has fully taped seams. The Thirsties Wet Bags are also seam-sealed in the same manner. But even so, it is not intended for soaking diapers. No pail liner should be used for that! Please wring the diapers out well anyhow, because it will be quite heavy if you don't do that, so I still encourage wringing them well after dunking or spraying. Fits most tall kitchen garbage cans up to 54 quarts. Height 30", width 29". 100% polyester with TPU laminate. FREE of VOCs, PVC, phthalates, lead, and latex. Made in the USA.
Pail liner only. Diaper pail is NOT included but is pictured so you can see how it is used.
Moving the diapers to the washing machine is easier with a liner. Our liners are good, durable liners that are made to be washed with the diapers. Dry for a short time in the dryer or hang to dry for longest life. They do dry quickly. It's extra nice to have two pail liners, so you can put a fresh one in the pail right away on wash day. The purpose of the liner is to make it easier to transport the diapers to the washing machine and for keeping poop streaks off the inside of the diaper pail. For deep water soaking, do not use a pail liner. We don't recommend deep water soaking because that is a drowning risk. If you want to soak, that's fine but do it in your washing machine safely away from baby and children. Using a pail liner really decreases or eliminates the need to scrub out the inside of the pail. I never scrub out my pail, but I do put it in the sun to deodorize it occasionally. I think it is a good idea to put the pail in outside in the sun once in a while if you can because UV rays really do freshen up the pail itself without any scrubbing at all.
Looking for a diaper pail? We don't sell them because any garbage pail without a lid or with a lid that is not airtight works well. Yes, I do mean NOT airtight. Airtight diaper storage is bad. The pail does need some air circulation.
These are good liners: thick PUL, good size. The liners themselves should last well. However, factor that made me chose Thirties versus another brand of pail liner that GMD carries was that the Thirties pail liners are seam sealed, while the other brand was not. I have washed the liners two or three times now--according to the instructions given!--and the seam sealing is no longer sealed on either liner (I ordered two), particularly on the rounded corners on the bottoms of the bags. And the bottom of the liner, of all parts, would need seam sealing the most! Disappointed with that quality defect. Again, these are good liners which I expect to last a long time, but don't expect the seam sealing to last part the first wash or two.

These are heavy duty and super nice. I had another large pail liner from some other company but wanted to buy a second one for when our other one is in the wash. This one is super nice and made from thick material. Way nicer than our other one.
I bought two of these as I do laundry every day to every 2 days. These are easy to use with the 13 gallon trash bin and wash easily. I air dry it and appreciate the extra nylon strap to wrap around the liner in case the smell gets too strong.
Does the job well, keeps wetness in, and I like that if we are traveling, I can use the strap to close the top.
Nice and strong, high quality. We wash it regularly with the diapers(usually we don't put it in the dryer) and it hasn't shown signs of wear after several months.
