Amanda, I really wouldn't recommend doing this as the vinegar in high concentrate will effect your pul and elastic. The best way to combat smells is to always do a cold rince before you wash and if you are worried about your nappy bucket pop a few drops of oil in your bin (Tea tree or lavender have antiseptic properties as well). You can stick a panty liner to the lid of the bin and put the oil on that. If you still find it bad you could just rinse the night nappy in cold water, wring then pop it in the bucket. I use a dash of vinegar in my wash (with oils), this is enough to help neutralise smells without damage to your nappies.
