Diaper Genie vs Diaper Dekor


I was always that Mom that thought I could just throw my child's diaper in the kitchen garbage. After many times of coming home to that awful diaper smell, I finally got smart and purchased a Diaper Pail. Now I can say I am a believer in Diaper Pails. We have reviewed two of the top brands on the market to give you the low down on them. 

Diaper Genie Elite

About: Diaper Genie Elite—simple and effective to help keep your nursery more hygienic. The Elite now has an Activated carbon filter to prevent odor more effectively. Their design makes dirty diaper disposal less odorous and hands-free.
Price: $30.00
Ease of Use: Easy to use, and loved that I could use the Up & Up refill instead of buying the name brand. The Diaper Genie Elite is worth the extra money compared to the Diaper Genie Essential because it is hands free.
Looks: Comes in a stylish neutral white and fits with all styles. 
Found At: All major Baby stores and Online.
Quality: Love the narrow design but it can still hold over 38 diapers.
Best Use: Hiding the smell of those stinky diapers. We found the Diaper Genie Elite worked really well at hiding the smell. I didn't even realize it was in the room.
Our Rating: 4 out of 5 stars 


About: Hands free disposal, Simple step on the pedal and the lid opens, drop your diaper in and your done. I love that it is hands free and more hygienic.
Ease of Use : Found the refills where a little harder to put in. But putting an actually Diaper in was really easy.
Looks: Comes in 5 color options. It's cute and stylish but a little bulky and wide.
Found At: All major Baby stores and Online 
Quality: Durable and will hold up with multiple children. 
Best Use: Hiding the smell from your stinky diapers. We found the Diaper Dekor didn't mask the smells as well as the Elite when using the normal refills. If the pail was full, we kept getting random smells of diapers all day long. We used the Munchkin Arm and Hammer Nursery Fresheners and that seemed to do the trick. 
Our Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Why we like it

1. When it comes to Diaper Pails, hands free is an absolute MUST! It is easier and definitely more hygienic! 

2. If you want to use the off brand of the Diaper Genie refills. You will have to remove the cone shape piece in the Diaper Genie. Once removed it will fit all off brand refills.

3. Cleaning each Diaper Pail was cake. I would use Clorox Wipes or clean with vinegar and water.

4. We love having multiple Diaper Pails in our home so we don't have to run up and down the stairs to dispose of the messy diapers.
