Munchkin's Arm & Hammer Diaper Pail!

I hated my old diaper pail. When I was given the opportunity to try out two new diaper pails, well I was all over that! I used the Diaper Genie II Elite for the first week and then used the Munchkin's new Diaper Pail for a week. Then I switched back o the Diaper Genie. Let me begin by telling you more about Munchkin's Arm & Hammer Diaper Pail! The self-sealing system seals the bag and locks odors away. The Arm & Hammer® baking soda cartridge safely absorbs odors and dispenses natural baking soda each time the lid is closed. The cartridge has to be refilled, which was a messy process for me, but that was mostly my fault! A full cartridge lasts over 90 days. I love the fact that you don't have to buy expensive replacement cartridges full of baking soda! The Arm & Hammer Diaper Pail is smaller, so if you are trying to make the most of your space, consider this pail. Bag replacement is also easy. I did not like having to touch the lid with my hands whenever I wanted to toss a dirty diaper. A hands free approach would have been much easier, not to mention, cleaner! I did not feel that this diaper pail was as good at controlling odors. I'd find myself emptying it more, and those refill bags aren't cheap. Each bag holds up to 25 diapers. While this wasn't my ideal diaper pail, I would consider it if space were an issue.  
To Disclose: I am a member of the Mom Central community and I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central, sponsored by Diaper Genie, and received a free Diaper Genie diaper pail and a free Munchkin Arm & Hammer diaper pail to facilitate my review.

Great review! I always liked my Diaper pail by Genie. I miss my diaper changing days as my kids are out of that stage for diapers. I love changing diapers and I love babies. :)
