Sangenic Nappy Wrapper
Advantages: no smelly nappies
Disadvantages: the cutter and how many it holds
I saw this product whilst I was pregnant and decided that for the price it was maybe a little steep and I would try just to look for some sort of bucket with a sealed lid to use for putting all the dirty used nappies in. I searched high and low for a bucket with a lid but could not find one anywhere!! I therefore saved up my Amazon vouchers and finally had enough to purchase this nappy bin that came with 6 of the bin liner cassettes.
For the total price of £34.95p I received my nappy bin with 6 liners within a couple of days and I thought it really did look the business. The liners that come with the nappy bin are slightly scented to take away any pong from the used nappies and this I know now is really needed.
Setting up the bin for use was pretty simple. The lid only fits on one way round and inside the lid is where the cassette lives. The lid has a Tommy Tippee logo on the front and this clips into the base of the bin along with two side clips to make the bin secure. The top lid is a purple colour that looks nice against the whiteness of the main part of the nappy wrapper. To start off you need to pull out some of the plastic bin lining from the cassette before use and tie a large knot in the end and push bin liner through to the inside of the nappy wrapper. The liner needs to pass both the upper and lower gripper that is hidden inside the top of the wrapper bin itself.
The bin itself is rather large but is said to hold up to 28 dirty nappies before the bin needs to be emptied. In the pictures I had seen of the bin before I received it the nappies that were put inside looked to be the perfect sausage shape but on first using it I found you really had to wrap the nappy into the right sort of shape before putting it in. The shape of the dirty nappy depends really on how full the nappy is when disposed of. It is nearly impossible to get the perfect sausage shape and because of his I find the bin does hold less than 28 dirty nappies before needing to be emptied.
Using the nappy wrapper however is pretty simple and once you have folded your nappy into the smallest shape possible you then lift the lid and push the nappy down through the upper gripping until it is resting on the lower gripper. Once inside you need to twist the knob that sits on the top just inside the lid to make the twisted seal of bin liner. You need to make sure the lid is closed to keep all odours locked away. This process is then repeated each time till the bin is full.
The bin will need emptying before the nappy wrapper cassette has been used up and there is a cutting mechanism built into the nappy wrapper. The lid needs to be closed so that the cutter-release button that is located on the lid can be pressed in allowing the turning of the cutter. It needs one full turn clockwise to be able to cut the inside liner but I have found that even only having it a couple of months the cutting system is not working as well as it should be and I now have to rip the liner away to be able to throw away all the nappies inside. Once the liner has been separated from the cassette you are able to tie a knot in it and push it through to create a sealed chain of dirty nappies! Lovely!! There is a handle on the front of the bin under the Tommee Tippee logo that allows you to carry the bin around and also makes it easier for empting! It is really surprising how heavy a few dirty nappies can be!
All in all the bin is good for keeping the smells sealed away and is a fairly good nappy bin. It is fairly expensive to keep buying the cassettes that are priced at around £6 a time. I can say I was disappointed that the bin did not hold as many nappies as it claimed and that the cutter does not work well even after a few uses. I would say the bin is a good buy if you can get it cheap (it is on sale in Argos at the moment for £15). I am glad I have the bin as some of Jack’s dirty nappies stink to high heaven and once inside the nappy wrapper you cant smell a thing! The bin looks good and holds away the nappies so overall you cant ask for more!!!
Summary: a good bin if you can get it cheap
