Hi! I really enjoy the Mother-Ease diaper system and have found a time saving diaper pail alternative for use with cloth diapers. Having been a white water canoe guide, I have used "dry bags" to keep food and supplies dry on river trips. After having a baby and using cloth diapers I thought the bag would keep water and smells in as well as they had kept them out on the river. The bag folds in on its self to make a water proof seal.
When it is time to launder the diapers, I simply hold the bag at the neck so that only the water comes out into the toilet and the diapers stay in. I can then wring most of the water out of the diapers by simpley pushing down on the bag. Next I dump the contents of the bag into my washer. Lastly, I rinse out the bag, put some borax in the bottom and about 5 gallons of water. I set the whole thing in an empty cat litter container. No spills, no smells, I don't even have to touch the diapers once they have been put into the bag. (Of course I wash out the dirty ones before they go into the bag.) I have a big bag at home and a smaller one for travel. They are avaliable in a variety of colors and sizes at most outdoor stores and are fairly inexpensive.
