When you’re shopping for a new baby, a nappy bin won’t be at the top of the list, if at all! Is it necessary to have a bin dedicated to nappies? Unless you’re using washable nappies, we’d say yes.
Most of us no longer get weekly rubbish collections – at best, our rubbish is picked up fortnightly – that’s a long time to have dirty nappies hanging around. Unless you want to run out to the outdoor bin every time you change your baby’s nappy, an odour proof bin will make life a lot more pleasant.
Korbell is the Cheeky Rascals nappy bin of choice. Available in three different sizes, there is a Korbell bin for every type of home, you can also find the larger sizes in childcare settings and nurseries.
Hands Free – just step and drop
The ergonomic foot pedal means you can easily dispose of nappies, even when holding a baby. Simply step on the pedal, drop in your nappy and step off the pedal to close the bin.
The bin has an extra strong seal to lock in any bad smells, keeping your home fresh and tidy. This three-part approach locks in odours through its sealed spring-loaded door; a top lid that acts as a secondary seal when shut; and lightly fragrance liners.
The liners are designed to last as long as possible and reduce environmental impact. Made from biodegradable materials, you just tie the liner at the bottom and then, when your bin is full, tie it at the top and use the built-in cutter to remove the full bag.
The Korbell Mini can hold up to 25 nappies before it needs to be emptied. Based on an average 7 nappy changes a day the liner will last for approximately 6 weeks – or as long as it takes you to get through 300 nappies.
The Standard 16 Litre Bin holds up to 45 nappies at a time. The liner lasts for up to 495 nappies or 10–11 weeks!
