Almost every nursery has a diaper pail, whether parents choose to use disposable or cloth diapers. They’re never the most attractive things, but they’re functional so we stick them off to the side and hope they won’t really be noticed.
That’s not the case anymore thanks to Ubbi diaper pails! These pails are made of steel and come in a variety of fun colors that really enhance the style of your nursery.
Of course, with having our first girl (and after having two boys) I am totally embracing the pink, and was thrilled to get the hot pink Ubbi to review for our nursery. I love that it adds a pop of color, and I am planning on putting it in a spot right inside the door – a very visible spot that I probably wouldn’t put a normal diaper pail! You can even get decals to add more design flair to your pail, but I like the look of ours as it is.
The top has a sliding mechanism to open and close it, and it has a lock feature that allows you to keep little hands from unintentionally opening the pail when you’re not ready.
There’s a rubber gasket around the lid that helps to seal in odors.
One of my favorite aspects of the Ubbi pail, though, is the ability to use a standard 13-gallon size trash bag and NOT have to buy specialty bags! I can’t tell you how many times with our old pail we’d run out of refills right at the most inconvenient time. And it’s SO easy to install the bag!
When you open up the pail there’s a ring:
You just tuck the bag down inside the ring, folding the sides of the bag over the outside of the ring and inside the pail:
And voila! You’re all set to go:
I am a huge fan of the Ubbi pail. It does retail for more than the pail we used to have, but when I consider the fact that I’m not going to have to spend $6+ on each and every refill, I feel like the costs balance out pretty quickly… and to me the aesthetic appeal of the Ubbi is worth a lot in itself. This would be great to add to your registry, or to give as a gift to someone and really add something special to their nursery.
