So let's talk about Diaper Genie Refills!
For some reason whenever I'm at Target they are always out of Diaper Genie II refills. All the time. I don't understand it. So often I have to go to Babies R Us to get said items. The only other time I go there is for diapers and do a) I remember to get the refills when buying diapers b) stock up before I run out? Nope, never! So what do you do? Do you simply convert the DG to a regular trash can and just hope for the best? Do you set the DG aside allowing it to collect dust while the room fills with fumes too horrifying to discuss until you can find the moment to get yourself together to get out the door to go shopping? No!
We have found a solution in our house! This actually was my husband's solution but I found it ingenious and again it's possible that I'm quite daft (recall the Mommy Brain) and this is of course what everyone does when they run out of DG refills. Well here it is. Take a standard trash bag and roll it down, then place the bottom through just as you would the refills and tuck the bulk of the trash back where the DG refill should be. Close the DG up as usual and wa-la you have a make shift DG refill that will certainly last until you go to the store. It keeps the DG clean and contains the smell just as well. The only draw back is toward the end - the bag is so much bigger that the old diapers have expanded the trash bag within the DG and the spring board holding the DG closed to lock in the "freshness" tends to sag open, so as the more diapers are added the wider the hole stays open- but it certainly will work for a day or two!
