~I received a Whisper Diaper Pail for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
One of the things that every parent has to deal with when it comes to children (especially infants) is odors and even though my youngest is out of diapers and pull-ups we still use wet wipes for #2. Tossing diapers, pull-ups or dirty wipes into a waste basket can turn any bathroom odoriferous, which is not all that appealing. If you happen to have pets, it can get even worse! We used to have a dog that loved nothing more than pulling dirty diapers out of the waste baskets in the house… I’ll save you the trouble of hearing the rest of the details.
Although the Whisper is a diaper pail, the idea was originally conceived for a need to address pet waste. The creator (Stephanie Hughes, PHD) knew that a diaper pail would solve the problem of removing the waste, but not the odors. Teaming up with David Schneider, they had created a new ODOGard® formula for aerosol applications tailored to the new diaper pail design. Tested by Moms, the Whisper® Diaper Pail became available to meet the needs of families.
Outside of wipes for #2, I often babysit my niece who still wears pull-ups or have teeny adorable little visitors in diapers. The simplistic, smooth design of the Whisper allow for it to blend into our bathroom seamlessly. One of my favorite things about it is that it isn’t complicated like most diaper pails AND you can use your own trash bags. I always hated that with most diaper pails you had to purchase extra separate bags, so if you ran out you wound up having to toss them in the waste basket anyway!
The Whisper’s mechanics are very similar to a push disposal with some extra touches. First off is the spray button on the outside with the aerosol can with ODOGard® formula inside is extremely convenient as well as safe! Not only does is the ODOGard® Spray Technology ECO-friendly, but it is also a non-flammable water-based formula that’s safe around humans and pets; and it complies with California’s EPA VOC Standards. On the diaper pail is a safe locking knob to keep kids from lifting the lid also. This comes in extremely handy. I don’t know about your kids, but my son loves to open everything.
I was very surprised by the spray. I had expected some perfume to mask the scent, but it honestly just removes the odor completely. I accidentally sprayed myself when I first put the cap on the aerosol can and thought, “Oh great, I’m going to smell like diaper perfume!” and at first it did seem to have a scent, then it was gone. Poof! Just think of what it does for dirty diapers and wipes!
I love that it’s hands-free, a necessity for any mom and it also keeps germs from being on the top of the pail from hands that just cleaned icky butts. The best part is that it isn’t an open waste pail, there is a flap that you have to push in after the lid lifts up and this is what locks in and eliminates the odors (as well as keeps your trash bag in place).
Each of these components make the Whisper® Diaper Pail the best product to have in your bathroom or nursery and would make any new mommy-to-be very thankful after the first dozen diapers she has to dispose of on a daily basis.
