|Most cloth diaper users use a dry pail nowadays. Wet pails can be a drowning hazard for a toddler (you have to make sure the lid locks), and wet diapers are harder to load in a washing machine. Also, some people get build up when they put detergent in the wet pail. But some people claim it helps keep diapers clean and smell-free.
But there may be a way to make things better without moving to a wet pail. Do you rinse overnight pee diapers? When babies get older, drink less, pee more and sleep longer, the overnight diaper can be very overwhelming. If I don't rinse it, it can make the paint peel from the walls. I'm sure other people will have other suggestions, too...
