When my eldest was born the Diaper Genie was all the rage. The environmentalist in me just couldn’t get my head around having a device that wrapped a diaper in a plastic bag, which makes the diaper even less biodegradable. I couldn’t fathom throwing out that many diapers and that much plastic. Fast forward almost 8 years to a new city where not only are diapers compostable, but plastic bags are as well. Diapers go in our municipal green bin and are sent with all the compost material to an anerobic digester, which turns the material into green energy. So cool.
Now the idea of a Diaper Genie is much more intriguing to me. Our general process of doing a diaper change and carting the diaper to the kitchen to toss into our city compost bin isn’t exactly ideal. Diapers are indeed pretty rank and they can often be a real mess in the early days or during illnesses.
The Diaper Genie didn’t fit in with the aesthetic of how I wanted my kid’s rooms to look either. It’s fairly large and plastic and white. Not exactly the look I was going for when envisioning their bedrooms, given the colours and patterns and clean lines I always lean towards. Playtex now has a great solution to this concern. The new Diaper Genie Expressions is a new system where a fabric sleeve is used to cover the plastic disposal pail. What makes this system even more appealing is that the covers are fabric, which means they are easily washed, and very simply interchanged so that you can purchase more than one and change up the look.
The disposal system was incredibly easy to use, even for this newbie, and the odor-lock system really is as great as people say it is (trust me, I have the strongest sense of smell alive). There was no detectable smell coming from the unit even after a couple of days and many diapers. There are currently five different designer sleeves to choose from and I was amazed to find that three of them were a perfect match for my daughter’s room. Far more than I had expected! Two run in the pink family, two in the blue and one is a very neutral grey. The patterns were even exactly what I had used for her room and I thought the sleeve was a really cute touch that helped to detract from the large, stark white plastic pail hiding underneath. They are quite stretchy and very easy to get on and off. The unit itself was also very straightforward and easy to use. Just keep in mind that the fabric sleeves will only fit the new Expressions unit and can’t be used on older models of the Diaper Genie.
The new Diaper Genie Expressions retails for $34.99 CAD and each designer fabric sleeve costs $12.99 CAD. They can be found at many major baby product retailers as well as online. If you are looking for a Diaper Genie or have been considering one but have hesitated because you aren’t keen on the look of them, the Expressions may be perfect for you.

Would love to try this.
I would love to try Playtex diaper genie expressions. I have only used garbage cans with lids and this would look so much better in the nursery. It would also make life easier having such a useful tool around diaper changing time. I also love to write reviews. 🙂
I just love the new patterns!! They are soft and will blend nicely with any decor!! 🙂
I would absolutely LOVE to try out the new Diaper genie and to have the chance to review it. I own the original Playtex Diaper Genie. I have had it for 5 years. It is broken but I still use it. I would love to update it and these patterns are SO fun! What a clever idea to come up with a great way to style up the Diaper Genie. Brilliant!
I love the new patterns! I would love to try this as I am so sick of the smell of dirty diapers. This would be a perfect addition to our home.
The new designer sleeve takes the Playtex Genie from bold to beautiful! It sure would come in handy for grand daughters!!
I’m excited to finally have the diaper pail be part of the decor Instead of hiding it away!
Id love to try this as it would look adorable in my little girls room
Would love to try just welcomed another grandson and sure could use this i don’t like having to go outside to dispose of diapers
I’d love to try the new Diaper Genie because they’re so cute – I won’t have to try to hide it in a corner, I can actually have it out where it’s functional AND adorable.
It sounds weird but i love that you can customize how it looks and have it as an accesory to a room and not just a diaper pail. Hopefully its also good at getting rid of diaper odors too!
With baby number 5 on the way and squishing into our 3 bedroom home a diaper genie this time around is a necessity. Since the baby will spend the first 6 months to a year in our room it would amazing to have a discrete diaper pail in our room.
Would love to try this! Just setting up my nursery and this would look great in there and help it blend in better. Thanks so much!
I would love to try this with our new addition. Love the changes that have been made!

I would love to try the Diaper Genie with sleeves as I have heard wonderful things about how well the Diaper Genie works for containing smelly diapers to keep your room smelling fresh! I think the designs would be perfect for keeping your room looking stylish!
Would love to be a tester, I have 2 boys 2 and a half and 8 months old, both still in diapers. We have only been using garbage pans and it doesnt always keep the smell of diapers hidden. This would come in handy and I love that they added new covers to make it a little more stylish! Excellent idea!
I would love to try the new Diaper Genie with sleeves. I have heard such great things about the diaper genie and how it contains all the odors.
I would love to try the new Diaper Genie with sleeves as I have just been using a pail
I WOULD LOVE TO TRY THIS NOT JUST ONLY FOR THE DESIGN BUT THE SMELL, HEALTH ISSUES AROUND THE WHOLE HOUSE THAT IT WILL BRING
I’m excited for the patterns because it will look less glaringly white in my bathroom and just add a splash of style.
I’d like to try it with a blue sleeve. I have a boy now after girls so blue things are new and nice to me.
I would love to try the Playtex Genie Diaper expressions in the grey color.I would like to see how well this works to keep the odors at bay.It looks so simple and easy to use and it would be a dream to have one.I love how the Genie sleeves match any decor and can be changed and washed.That’s awesome! If I am lucky enough to get on I will gladly write a review on it.Thank you for this amazing opportunity and chance to be picked. 🙂
We go through a lot of diapers in a day with 2 in them, so this would be great to try to see if it will reduce the smell in an old Genie we have!
I would like to win so my niece who is due soon can try it out (well the adults can) with her diapers! Love the new design.
I am excited to try the new diaper genie because I have the original, and I find it to be a bit smelly! I would love to see if the new one will lock in smells better!
Never used a diaper genie. I used exclusive cloth with my oldest so had no need. However even though my little guy is a bit older we are still in full diaper mode, I am using eco friendly disposables , no way am I hand washing cloth . Point being in need to keep the rank smells away , have had issues this summer esp with the heat , a diaper genie would have helped lol
It’s amazing how quickly things change and this sounds like it’s for the better! I have a 3 month old and we have the old model and I don’t even use it all the time because I hate how it looks in her nursery! I would love to try this one as the design looks smart and stylish!
I would love to try this awesome diaper pail. We have a three week old DD and would get a lot of use out of it I’m sure!
We’re expecting our first baby and would love to try the new Diaper Genie in the nursery. I love how you can customize the pail to fit right in with your baby’s decor.
i am excited for genie expressions because it is one item that really needs a personality in the nursery! i would like for it to look less like a wastebasket and more like an accessory to the nursery! it is such a great idea!
I’m excited to try this as it would help improve the smell in my baby’s room as well as improve the look. Its scary to think he’s not even on solids.
What a great idea! It would make my daughter’s nursery look a little bit prettier!
