Need a bigger bucket!

Postby Frances » Sun Nov 23, 2008 10:06 pm

We've got a fairly big nappy bucket but it's not big enough! After 2 days and about 12 nappies the lid won't fit and the downstairs loo gets very honky. I need a bigger one as I prefer to wash about 18 nappies every 3 days to make sure we've got a full load in the washer - can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks!

We use a huge pedal-bin we bought from tescos (online but I'm sure they sell them in the larger stores) - I think it's around 30L but can't remember...
That when full is a full washing machine load...

I know the lid doesn't seal on but we don't get a whiffy bathroom from it...

Hi

Dh is a home brewer and I have borrowed :) one of his fermenting buckets. It holds about about 18-20 nappies and it has a dealable lid. They are £7.99 new in wilkinsons.

Go to Wilkinsons if you have one near, they do lots of big plastic buckets with lids. You can get ones that are for toys or laundry.
