Smelly bucket

Postby labbiefan » Tue Aug 20, 2013 5:38 am

My nappy bucket smells of Amonia. I've tried a few drops of tea tree oil, and I wash the bucket out between washing- and it still smells. I wash my nappies every 2-3 day x

Have you tried to wash it with soda crystals or bicarbonate of soda and leave it outside to air?
I used to do that between washes and it wouldn't smell, would only smell when the nappies went back in there :giggle:
Hope that helps!

I use something from a pet store designed to get rid of wee odours-its a solution which i just put a splash on a peice of kitchen roll and wipe the bucket over. Works amazingly!

I found that some buckets held smells in the plastic, but often a wash with soda crystals did the job. I also out in outside to dry in the sunlight whenever possible.
