Product Review: Planet Wise Pail Liner

I have a confession. Since August 2007 I have only had ONE pail liner to store my dirty cloth diapers. Yikes! It is definitely recommended to have at least two in your rotation, but I have somehow managed to get by with just one for the past 4 years and 8 months. Well, I recently decided it was finally time to retire my Bummis Large Wetbag . After 4 years and 8 months of full time use as a pail liner, it was starting to break down and not be as effective in containing stinky stuff…especially since we are not washing diapers as frequently; my toddler is in full on potty training mode! (Um, I think that means it is time for another BABY, don’t you?!?)

My Bummis Large Wetbag served me quite well for the past several years and I would definitely recommend it! I had the old skool model that only had the drawstring closure whereas the current design has both a zipper and a drawstring…super cool!

Anyway, as much as I loved my Bummis Large Wetbag I was in the mood to try something new. I have had my eye on Planet Wise Pail Liners for a while now. I have other Planet Wise products that I really love and know they make a solid product. Plus their prints are adorable!

I love, LOVE getting packages from Mom’s Milk Boutique in the mail…especially when the awesome gals in the shipping department include a little salted carmel treat. Yum! I have to hide it from my kids though and try to open it as quietly as possible so I can actually enjoy it. My two year old has candy radar from like a dozen miles away. Any time he hears a little wrapper crumbling he comes running, “Candy?!? Candy?!?”.

Much like my other Planet Wise products, their pail liner does not disappoint. It’s made in the USA from PVC free fabric that is both odor and stain resistant. It measures approximately 28″ tall and 54″ in circumference which fits most standard waste baskets. Also the innovative design of the Planet Wise pail liners don’t wick or leak.

One downside is that it doesn’t have a closure to it, so you need to use a pail that has a lid. This is not necessarily a big deal, but I was accustom to using a pail liner that had closure and came to rely on that feature. However there is elastic trim along the top of the Planet Wise Pail Liner that effectively holds the liner in place on the pail.

All in all I am quite pleased with my new pail liner. As is my hubby…no more stinkies in the bathroom adjacent to our bedroom where we store our cloth diapers.

Do you have a Planet Wise Pail Liner? If so, how do you like yours?

    I love my Planet Wise liner! We got one for our first baby and will be using it for #2 starting next month. We registered for a second one too, not because the first is worn out but just because we love it and want another to rotate. I don’t think we’d even try another wet bag!

    For what it’s worth, I just used an ‘open pail’ method, using a trash can. I found that it kept the stink down a lot more than trying to ‘keep it in’. If one was particularly bad, I just ran the ceiling fan.

      Thanks. That (open pail method) is what I am currently doing because I don’t actually have a pail that fits my pail liner just yet. Maybe I just won’t get around to getting one, lol! 🙂

    mine started deteriorating and getting holes in them after less than a year of use- 2 in rotation. I got a third one when my 2nd baby was born, and it’s got holes in it too, even though it’s been used in a 3- way rotation (getting washed once a week or less) and it’s about had it, too.

    Fingers crossed if we have another one, I’ll have to explore other options that have thicker pul.

      Thanks for your feedback. Maybe try the Bummis Large Wetbag? Mine has been awesome all these years with heavy use. 🙂
