It seems like every year a new diaper pail hits the market and promises to keep stinky odors contained. New moms buy into the concept and after about six months, they come to the realization that no trash can is immune to the foul stench of poopy diapers — even after a good scrub.

Rather than buying a new rubbish bin twice a year, wad up some newspaper and place it in the receptacle for a day and let it soak up the icky stench. Your nose and wallet will thank you.
