Playtex – New Diaper Genie Elite Review {Giving Away 25 FREE Samples!}

 photo Christmas_zpsuzs4k8zn.png

I must admit that I didn’t know about the Diaper Genie before becoming a mom. It was actually my husband’s college buddy and fellow parent who tipped us on to the wonders of the Diaper Genie. Before I had one I didn’t really get what the big deal was but once you start using it you can’t live without, especially once your baby is eating solids and generating an ungodly amount of smelly diapers.

The Diaper Genie Elite seals away any odors and helps compact soiled diapers into a kind of plastic sealed tube bag. Once the bag is full you open the pail, cut the end of the bag, tie it and take the garbage out, without getting your hands dirty. It is SO easy to use and maintain! We used it daily with our first son until he was potty trained and we are using one right now with our second child.

Super easy to assemble!

Unlike ordinary household trash cans you can trust that all unpleasant smells will stay where they belong, this means you can leave the genie inside of your baby’s nursery or inside a bedroom without having to worry about it. Love that! The Diaper Genie Elite also comes with Diaper Genie Carbon Filters to help tackle even the strongest diaper odours. The filters are made with natural activated carbon that locks in odour molecules rather than just masking the odour with fragrance.

Bye-bye stinky diaper!

Carbon filter

The new redesigned Diaper Genie Elite has a front-tilt pail for easy diaper disposal, I really like how easy it is to remove the waste that way, a definite improvement over their older models.

If we are cloth diapering we usually use the Diaper Genie to throw away our dirty wipes. The wipes are usually super messy and can stink just as much as the diapers so the Genie is a great place for them! Having only wipes there also means that the bag refills usually last us a long time, making it a very economic and hygienic disposal system. Super useful!

If you are expecting a little one then I advice you to add the Diaper Genie to your baby’s registry, you will thank me later!  If you are already dealing with smelly diapers, taking the trash out multiple times a day  and suffering with dirty diaper smell all over your house then get yourself a Diaper Genie, it will change your life! You can also now choose from a variety of pretty colours, including pink, white and grey!

  114. I was younger when I had my first child and I never had the opportunity to have any items like a diaper genie to make life easier! I used a basic garbage can and was continuously tieing up bags and going to the garbage box outside! Until I seen a neighbour with the diaper genie a few months ago, I didn’t even think about buying one or how beneficial they could be. I’m usually very sceptical about using products like these, wondering if it’s just another gimmick for moms-to-be to spend money on. However, the diaper genie has really caught my eye and I’d love to try it out to see if they are really worth the money or if a regular diaper pail does the trick!

  115. I would love to try the new Playtex Diaper Genie Elite with my newborn in a few weeks. I like the grey colour – it would be a good match in our nursery.

  116. Would love one for upcoming bundle of joy

  119. i need one because i hate that diaper smell that is left around, its daunting constantly taking a grocery bag, bagging the diaper and then tossing it in the garbage bin outside. Love that it has a side door for easy removal of diapers

  120. First time parent here and was very curious about this genie thing. Would love to dry before investing my money on something. Dirty diaper smell I’m sure is very unpleasing and I would love to to this product that claims to help keep it under control.
    Thanks so much for choosing me if chosen!!

  121. I actually used this for both of my little ones, not so little anymore.

    I want to gift this to an expecting friend for her to try. I’m sure she will love it as much as I did.

  122. I am the mom of 6 month old “So far no solid food so no smelly diapers”.but now baby started with solid foods and I couldn’t hold my breath everytime I change my baby diaper & dispose it.Already planning to buy one diaper pail.I would be happy to receive this diaper genie for FREE TO TRY and RATE AND REVIEW in amazon. Thanks in advance…

  123. I am expecting my first child this year and Iam so excited! I have been reading about all the things I could possibly need for baby and still have no idea where to start. I used to work at a daycare and we had a super old diaper pail we used and it contained some of the smell but the closer u got to the pail the more foul it smelled. I would love to try the new diaper giene to see if it really does contain all that stinky diaper smell

  124. I would love to try this product mainly because my dogs Have figured out how to open the regular trash and are eating (gross) the diapers. And now with another baby on the way, the diaper genie seems like the perfect solution!!

  125. Hi, I would love to try out this diaper genie. I’m a step-grandmother to a wonderful little boy. We are helping out my boyfriend’s daughter while she gets her life back on track. I use a litter locker (same idea as the diaper one) and if it works as good as that I’m sold! Thanks 🙂

  126. I am excited to try it and see how it change my diappers mess.

  127. Hi there…the last time I used a diaper genie was 10 years ago !…now due to have my new little baby boy in 1 day I am very interested in seeing how far they have come in 10 years cuz honestly back then ..smell was still a problem..

  128. Very excited and would love to use new playtex diaper genie product with my new born in few weeks.

  129. After 8 years of trying we are finally expecting our first child. With being new parents I think one of these would help us out to being new parents. Love the new colors also!

  130. Hi, did you find that the door didn’t sit flush on the side when closed? the door clicks on but when looking at both sides, you can’t see inside but there’s a gap as it doesnt sit flush.
