I dry pail and now I 'only' have two in nappies, I only wash every third night. Need the others for clothes! I did try wet pailing when I first started out and it was disgusting having to empty out the water ad then get the dripping nappies into the machine!

We have always just dry pailed and have a strap of cloth at the bottom of the bucket with a few drops of lavender oil on it.

This confirms my suspicions about what seems to be the most practical method. I was told by my mum, who arguably hasn't used cloth for nearly 30 years! :oops: that I needed to soak them with milton, although I realuise that this is not for modern nappies and mainly was used for the old terry squares.
I am getting a lovely bottle of French lavender oil from the farm down the road from my mum, the benefits of having a parent that lives abroad! so will use that to scent the bucket.
Cheers for the advice ladies xx

I dry pail, I put tea tree oil on a panty liner and stick it on the lid of the bucket :giggle: I do that in the bin too!
