Angelcare Nappy Bin
Advantages: hygenic, hides smells if emptied frquenlty
Disadvantages: needs emptying quite often and the cassettes are expenisve
As a new parent you buy so much "stuff" as advised by mothercare new parent lists, the majority of these things are things you never use but they sell you anyway, but every now and again you find a gem that you find you cannot live without. For me these finds were a microwave steriliser and a nappy bin. I have previously reviewed the steriliser.
The idea of a nappy bin is that it is specifically designed for waste nappy storage so that this sort of refuge is not mixed in with the everyday rubbish. Angelcare offer one variation of this, other companies also offer simliars
I actually did not purchase this, we had a voucher as part of our bounty pack which entitled us to pick one up free from Argos. It came with a refill cassette free aswell.
The product is tall and slim and does what it says on the tin! It does need emptying quite often especially with newborns due to how often you change their smelly bottoms, but having said that even as they get older they still need emptying as frequent as the size of nappies increase and their storage space remains the same.
The item works by opening the lid and pushing the folded up nappy through the small opening in the bin. This hole is thin enough not to let smells escape and providing you stay on top of the emptying, or use nappy bags to compliment this, we have never had an issuewith smells.
From what I understand these are cheap items but 2 and a half years on and these are still in use, even if it is just for that one nightime nappy that my boy uses.
Summary: a good buy, just budget for the cassettes on a monthly basis, or plan ahead and buy online cheaper
