How Do You Store Your Dirty Cloth Diapers?

Put yourself in the moment; you’re at the changing table with your baby and you are changing your first cloth diaper (a Rump•a•rooz® of course) when you realize that the Genie that once magically made the disposable diapers disappear will no longer work for storing your dirty cloth diapers.

We all know by now that Mr. Genie doesn’t actually work any magic and those disposable diapers end up buried in a landfill and left to pollute our precious planet. But what do you do with your Rump•a•rooz® after you’ve removed them from your baby? Mr. Genie certainly won’t work for this.

Coming in a few short weeks Kanga Care has the perfect answer to your storage dilemma – the new Kanga Care Wet Bags and Pail Liners – available in all of the fabulous Rump•a•rooz® solid colors and prints to match your favorite cloth diaper.

Wet Bags – A wet bag is a water-proof bag with a zipper that will keep your dirty diapers safe and keep the smell sealed inside. You can store the wet bag in your nursery, bathroom, or take it with you on trips. It comes complete with a door knob friendly hanger that allows the wet bag to become part of your room d├ęcor. The wet bag holds about 15 cloth diapers and inserts.

Pail Liners – A pail liner is made of the same water-proof material as the wet bags but is made to fit inside of a diaper pail (or kitchen type trash can) and have a drawstring closure. You can place a pail and liner next to a changing table, in a closet, or in your laundry area. The pail liner would be a great accessory for traveling or if you have to do laundry at a laundry mat. Size: 26" tall, 16: diameter, 54" around

What makes Kanga Care wet bags and pail liners different from other brands?
  • New barrier seam sealing technology that physically seals the seam away from moisture without using any glue or ironing.
  • Wet bags come with color matching zippers and snaps (lifetime warranty).
  • Wet bags and liners are both made with environmentally safe TPU just like the Rump•a•rooz® cloth diapers. TPU will biodegrade when composted and will break down in 4.5-5 years.
  • They match your favorite Rump•a•rooz® solid color and prints.
Other ways you can use your Kanga Care wet bags and pail liners include storing mama (or family) cloth in bathrooms, storing dirty kitchen rags, storing other dirty clothes, storing wet swimwear and towels from the beach or pool, and storing wet gloves and hats from a day in the snow. How else do you use your wet bags?

Customer Poem-testimonial

Cloth diapers it is for this family of mine.
We want to keep baby dry, happy and fine.
Not quite old fashioned like the ones from our Gram
It’s the modern cloth diaper for our little fam!

Got to be trim, on budget and baby,
Save us some money and rashes, just maybe.
We started with prefolds and a pocket or three
Then added some others, as cute as can be.
Never heard of a diaper made by Kanga Care
Until a friend said what her baby did wear.

Then I got on the web and found Kanga Care.
Why didn’t I know their dipe was out there?
Patent pending design keeps the “poo off my roo”
So I bought Rumparooz – what else could I do?

This diaper is special, here’s why, look with me –
The 6R soaker can hold all the pee.
Double leg gussets make a great “poop scoop”
You can choose from snaps, or hook and loop.
Micro-chamois lining keeps baby’s bum dry,
Now that is great news – no reason to cry!

Now we’re livin’ it up with our Rumparooz dipe,
Does this poem help you understand all the hype?
Rumparooz are the best – hear baby coo.
Cute colors and prints are on my little roo.
From newborn to potty, Rumparooz beats the rest,
We love Rumparooz, and we’re really impressed!

Poetry at its best!

This is a poem written by one of our adoring customers, Jenica (Washington.) Thanks Jenica! Be sure to keep an eye on the post man in the next couple weeks! ;)

Here is a little something to say how I love cloth diapering-

My friend and I were due together
She asked what diapers I planned to use
Cloth or sposies I said, whatever

Then I got interested and did some research
Cloth sounded like fun, and better for the Earth
I got sucked in to the world of fluffy butts
I built up a stash from prefolds to mutts

Then came a diaper that answered my prayers
Rump-a-rooz one size they didn't compare
With their super trim fit
And double leg gussets
My little roo's happy
Definitely no fussin'

I love to use cloth
And papa does too
As long as it's easy to use
And holds in the poo

Rump-a-rooz one size
The best you can use
Because they're the best
At keeping the poo off my roo
