Holy Heck does Charlie's diaper pail S-T-I-N-K!!! I've tried pot-pori (sp?) and room deodorizers in it and they just mix in with the smell. OMG....YUCK!!! We keep it in his closet so I am freaking because his clothes smell now.
So, I jumped on the web and found Innofresh and ran out and got it during lunch today. Funny part about this is that I had to go to Murray's Auto Parts to get it. I'm putting it in as soon as I get home. It says it starts working immediately. I have high hopes because it's an activated charcoal filter. I work at a chemical research facility and I know how well our charcoal filters work when filtering the air coming out of the lab hoods. Anyway, wish me luck and I'll let you know if it works.
What do you use to eliminate diaper pail odors?

Yes, let us know if it works. I'm planning on using cloth diapers and was reading about moms who will cut a small square of fabric/cloth then use lavendar oil on the cloth. They throw it in the bottom of the pail to help with oders. You can either wash the cloth when you empty the pail or use another. I've read this on a few sites so that is why I'm mentioning it.

It works!!!!!! It SO WORKS!!!! His room had absolutely NO smell this morning!!! WooooHooooo!!!!!
Now, they say that they last 4 months and they are about $4. I'm thinking if they really only last a month and I have to get one every month, for $4, I'm OK with that.

I use a diaper Genie with the scented bags. It works wonderfully. I never have had a stinky Genie. Let me also mention that I have twins. I also found a website for vinegar uses you might want to check out. It covers everything from house, laundry, health and auto and vinegar is really cheap!

Thanks for the info, charliesmommy. My son isn't even eating food yet and his pail is already stinky enough for me! =)
Which Innofresh product did you buy?

Do you happen to know the 'environmental impact'? We try to keep nasty chemicals out of the house...wondering if this product is safe. Thanks!

It's charcoal and plastic.
Actually ladies, it's not working so great anymore. :( I'm at a loss other than to change the bag every couple of days. :(

Try buying the deoderizing bags, and spray that clorox anywhere hard surface spray into the pail itself and letting it dry overnight. Some of the smell may be caused by bacteria and that spray is wonderful for killing germs.
potpourri, I know, I'm soory, my DH hates when I do that.
