I received this product free for review. All opinions and lack of criticism remain my own.
Welcome to the world’s most boring review. Thanks a lot, Funky Fluff, for making a product that does exactly what it’s supposed to do and does it perfectly. What am I supposed to complain about?
Meet the Funky Fluff Hanging Diaper Pail:
Although I normally store dirty diapers in a diaper pail lined with our Funky Fluff pail liner (best pail liner around, if you ask me… so that would also be a boring review), when I’m visiting my parents in BC, I need another solution. I’ve always used our Bummis XL Fabulous Wet Bag, and I’ve always had to borrow an over the door hanger from my Mom’s room in order to suspend the wet bag from the back of the door. The Funky Fluff Hanging Diaper pail, with its convertible handles, can hang out pretty much anywhere.
My favourite spot is the towel rack:
But it can also hang on a wall hook (or back of the door hook), on a sturdy hanger in the closet or on a doorknob:
Notice you can easily unzip the bag to add more dirties no matter how the bag is hanging.
Other great features of this hanging pail are:
- The dual layers of polyester interlock with laminate in the middle, making it virtually leak proof. (I rinsed our overnight diaper and barely wrung it out. This usually causes liquid to seep through our pail liners. Not a drip escaped from out Funky Fluff!)
- Pleated front (like their dual pocket wet bag) increases storage capacity. Funky Fluff says it’s designed to hold 18-20 diapers. Depending on what diaper style you use, I think it would hold more.
- Extra layers of fabric and zipper closure hold in odours. Olivia from This West Coast Mommy had no unpleasant smells on her drive home from camping with her Funky Fluff Hanging Pail!
- Dumping the dirties into the washing machine is easy and mess-free.
Okay I admit it, I have two complaints. One is that I don’t own two, so I don’t have a back up when the other is in the wash. The second is that they don’t make a miniature version. I’d love a miniature model in this same design to hang in our bathroom at home for our cloth toilet paper (aka “Family Cloth*”) and also my Mama cloth. A mini one could also be hung off the stroller for a variety of purposes. I have the ear of Kathy and Tricia at Funky Fluff, so if you agree, maybe I’ll make this suggestion!
*In regards to Family Cloth and a horrified text from my BFF, I use it for PEE. My husband deals with all his business using toilet paper. I don’t wash my husband’s “poo rags.” (And if you do, that’s cool, too!)
