If you are the parent of a young child, then you know the importance of having a Diaper Genie. This handy little device helps clean your home and is free from dirty diapers. But like all machines, it must be appropriately maintained to function correctly. Let’s look at how to change the bag on your Diaper Genie and how to clean the machine itself. Keep your home smelling fresh and clean – follow these simple steps!
Changing the bag:
The bag on your Diaper genie refill is what catches and contains all of the dirty diapers. It is made of a unique material that helps to lock in odors so that your home does not start to smell like a diaper pail.
When should you change it:
It would help if you changed the bag on your Diaper Genie when it is complete or when it starts to smell. If you wait too long to change the bag, the machine will not work correctly, and your home will start to smell.
How often should you change it:
You should change the bag on your Diaper Genie every two weeks or sooner if it becomes full or smells.
First, let’s talk about changing the bag on your Diaper Genie. This is a pretty straightforward process. You will need to purchase a refill bag specifically designed for your Diaper Genie model. Once you have the new bag, simply remove the old one and insert the new one. That’s it! Be sure to knot the top of the new bag tightly so that no smells can escape.
Clean the Machine:
The Diaper Genie is a plastic container that uses a special bag and lid system to trap diaper odors. The unit has a foot pedal that opens the lid, allowing you to place the soiled diaper inside. Once the lid is closed, it seals in the odor until you are ready to empty it.
You will need to clean your Diaper Genie every few weeks or more often if you notice it is starting to smell. To clean the unit, simply remove the bag and lid and wash them in your sink with warm soapy water. Be sure to rinse them well. You can also use a mild bleach solution on the bag if you wish. Allow everything to air dry before putting it back together. You should also clean the actual Diaper Genie unit itself. The best way to do this is to use a baby bottle brush and some warm soapy water. Scrub the inside of the unit, being sure to get all of the nooks and crannies. Rinse well and allow to air dry.
