Made in the USA Wet Bags & Pail Liners

Planet Wise wet bags

>I love my Planet Wise small wet bag, but I wanted a few more.  You can read more about why I love them in my wish list post.

The colors and prints are adorable. 

I got a medium, to give me a little more wiggle room than the small I have now (that holds 2 diapers but it’s a tight fit).

I also got a wet/dry bag, which is almost exactly the same size as the medium bag.  However, it has a separate “dry” pocket on the outside to hold clean diapers, and also has a snap loop handle.  I thought this would be great to keep several diapers in the car when we were going to be out and about for a bit longer and would need more than the two or so I could easily fit in my bag.

I fit four clean diapers with no trouble & tons more room.

I also got a large wet bag to keep in the laundry room to use as a diaper pail basically.

I looped it on the drawer handle for now.  It’s awesome!  It fits a day’s worth of diapers (10) easily, with no wicking & no smell.  Boy does it stink when I unzip it at the end of the day, ha ha!  I’ve put dripping wet diapers in it after rinsing, and it doesn’t leak when closed, even if I hold it upside down.

At the end of the day, I just unzip and shake the diapers into the washer.  I pull the inserts out and fold laundry tabs in before I put them in the wet bag to make things simpler.  Then I toss the bag in too!

You can dry these in the dryer, but I want to baby them, so I hung them to dry.  The insides of the bags are PUL.

By morning, it’s dry & ready to use again, but I’d love to have a second one, so I can have one in use constantly.
I wish all of the wet bags had the loop handle.  A medium would be great to hang on the dishwasher handle to hold wet towels, dish cloths, and cloth napkins (when I finally get some!)  It would also be handy to be able to loop a wet bag around my diaper bag handle.  I love the wet/dry bag, but I usually just keep 1 or 2 diapers and a folded up wet bag in my bag for short trips.  It workd wonderfully, but would be convenient to hang it on my bag handle instead of trying to shove it back in the bag.
I also got a large “basic” pail liner.
The outside is super soft and it has an elastic drawstring and PUL inside.
I haven’t tried it in my diaper dekor yet.  As I said in my post about pails, I’m not sure if it would be worth the trouble, it might be easier to stick with what I’m doing now!

Dear Santa,

>Dear Santa,

I’ve been a very good girl this year.  I won’t elaborate since you see me when I’m not sleeping and you know when I’m awake rocking someone or tucking someone else in!  As such, I am going to go crazy with my wish list.  Hee hee.

First and foremost, I would like more diapers, so I don’t have to wash twice per day anymore!

I have one Blueberry Minky one size diaper in blue latte, but there are so many other styles and patterns I’d like to try!  The Blueberry One-Size Minky Bamboo Velour has a bamboo/organic cotton inner instead of microfleece.  Then there’s the Blueberry One Size Bamboo Velour Diaper.  Lastly, there’s the Blueberry Deluxe One Size Diaper in snaps and hook & loop.  Microfleece wicks moisture away from baby’s skin, but it is man made, and some babies can be sensitive to it.

Some come in snaps only and others come in snaps or hook and loop (velcro applix).  Generally speaking, I prefer velcro for ease of diapering and adjustability, but Blueberry’s velcro is apparently super strength!  I have such a hard time getting the tabs off of the laundry tabs, I think the laundry tabs may just rip right off.  However, I would not complain if Santa brought velcro!

The prints I love are:

Blue on Chocolate
Blue/Yellow Dots
Lemon Lime
Blue Pop
Sage on Chocolate
Mint Patties
Winter Sage

My favorites are Sage on Chocolate and Lemon Lime.  I try to choose gender neutral prints but I gravitate towards cute boy stuff!  I don’t think any of these are too boyish for a girl, but I’m sure if we ever cloth diaper a girl, I will want to buy all the cute, pink & ruffly cloth diapers too.   Eek now I’m feeling kind of guilty for not CDing my daughter.

I love the monkey print velcro diaper I have.  I would love to try one with snaps, as well as other prints in the velcro.

The monkey print on the left is what I have and love.  My daughter loves it too, she doesn’t want me to change her brother when he’s wearing it!  The peace bears print on the right is the one I’d most love to have!
I think the blue hibscus is adorable and would be great for a boy or a girl.

Of course, I’m a sucker for a cute print, so I like them all!

I am really anxious to try Rumparooz.  My favorites are the Lil Monster and kangaroos, but all of the colors and prints are cute!
There are also several accessories I’d love to have
I am definitely wishing for a BumGenius Diaper Sprayer.  We’ve just started solids and I’m scared.  Heh.  I was scared of some of my daughter’s solid food eating dipes, and she wore sposies!

I have a single, small Planet Wise wet bag, but I am coveting several more types.

Why Planet Wise?  First off, they are PVC free and lead free.  Did you know most zippers are painted with lead containing paint?  Scary!  The bags come in awesome prints and are incredibly functional.  They have a locking zipper and hidden/sealed seams for no wicking.  They can be washed & dried with your diapers, though I hang mine dry, as I also do with my PUL diapers.  You can even use the wet/dry bags or large wet bags as a hanging diaper pail. 

Planet Wise is family owned and has very family friendly employee practices.  Not only do their products replace their disposable counterparts, their packaging is recycled/recycleable, and uses soy based ink.  When your children are no longer in diapers, you can use the bags to transport wet bathing suits, dirty laundry, even use them to separate shoes or toiletries from the rest of your suitcase when traveling.  I’m guilty of using plastic bags for all of these things!

The wet/dry bag would be excellent for storing multiple diapers when we are going to be away from home for more than a few hours.
I like the Geometric Studio
Black Curly Q
and aqua swirl.
I’d also like some medium wet bags for the diaper bag, and a couple of large wet bags to use for after rinsing dirty diapers.  The small bag fits two dirty one-size pockets, but it’s a little snug.  The mediums would be a little easier for more than 1 I think. 
I like the blue vista
Black Curly Q
and aqua swirl
I’d also love to have the cloth wipes/pouch and a small squirt bottle for wipes solution in the diaper bag.  I love that you can actually pre-moisten the wipes to take with you, and the bag won’t leak or wick!
This is a little off topic but they have this little mini wet dry bag.  How awesome is that.  Very discreet for using mama cloth when out and about.  I’ve heard ladies say they use small wet bags in their bathrooms as well.

I haven’t decided if I want to use a diaper pail or not, but I wouldn’t mind a large liner to try out.  I’m interested in one with a drawstring so I can see if it would work in the Diaper Dekor pails I have.

I would like some Thayer’s Alcohol Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel to use in my wipes solution.  It is extra soothing to little bums, and can help preserve wipes solution as well.

I’d also like another tube of Grandma El’s diaper rash remedy to keep upstairs.
We don’t have a chimney, and Santa probably doesn’t like Almond Milk, so I’ll hang onto this wish list just in case I win the lottery.  😀  You know, so I don’t have to waste any time deciding what to spend the money on.  Hee hee.
