5 Benefits of using a Nappy Bin
As a parent, you are likely to change more nappies than you want to count before your little one reaches the stage of potty training – which of course comes with its own delights! Given the number of nappies you will change, you need somewhere to store dirty nappies and their accompanying odours which is where the nappy bin comes in. A nappy bin offers lots of benefits to parents. Here we look at 5 of those benefits.
They Hide Odour
Whether the nappy is dirty or just wet, it comes with odours you do not want lingering around your home.
How the nappy bin hides the odours depends on how the nappy is stored within the bin so will differ from model to model.
You can of course use your normal bin to dispose of used nappies, but this is not designed to hide the odours that accompany used nappies.
A nappy bin is designed for that purpose and that is one of the major benefits of using a nappy bin.
Individually Sealed Nappies
Aside from odours, used nappies can also carry germs.
If you use a nappy bin, most will wrap the used nappy individually rather than simply piling used nappies on top of one another, waiting for a parent to change the bin.
By wrapping the used nappy individually, a nappy bin helps prevent the spread of germs – and means parents do not need to change the bin every time they pop a used nappy in.
They Provide Anti-Bacterial Protection
Not all nappy bins offer this benefit, but many bags or cassettes used in nappy bins offer antibacterial properties.
Alongside the nappies being sealed individually, this can help prevent the spread of bugs and germs.
No parent wants their baby to become ill. And no parent wants to be ill trying to look after a baby.
By using a nappy bin that comes with antibacterial properties, you get that extra peace of mind.
Antibacterial protection is a benefit of using a nappy bin.
They are easy to use
If you are put off buying a nappy bin because you think it will be complicated to use, this benefit of using a nappy bin should make you reconsider.
Nappy bins are not designed to be complicated to set up and use. In fact, they are designed to be taken out of the box and used straight away once you have inserted the cassette or liner.
Even inserting the cassette or liner is straight forward. There are no complicated set up instructions to follow before you can use the bin.
They are not an eyesore
Do not be put off using a nappy bin because you think they will be an eyesore in your home.
The best nappy bins are compact, lightweight, and discreet.
The dirty nappies are hidden inside the bin and the bins come in different colours so you can find one that fits in with your décor.
