Convenient, safe & easy! Love it.
As a first time mum & wanting to save money I wasn't sure I needed a sangenic bin for my son's nursery. I was using a simple trash can with lid, that would fill up twice a day and had that distinct dirty nappy smell lingering in the nursery, which made me hesitant to put move my son into the same room. Then I was lucky enough to receive a Tommee Tippee sangenic bin, I thought no harm in trying & was surprised how easy & convenient it was to use! Simply place the nappy & dirty wipes in, push down (or close the lid to press down), turn clockwise and neatly the nappy is individually wrapped up and hidden away! No more smell, no more mess! The bin itself is sturdy although smaller than I was expecting and holds roughly 28 nappies. The recommendation is that the refill will last roughly a month, which is unrealistically based on 3 nappies a day - in reality, the bin was filled within 4 days, and the entire cassette used within the week but emptying the somewhat sausage trail of nappies was easy to dispose of and again the odour was kept to a minimum. Reloading the cassette from both partial use & a new cassette was also quick & easy. Overall I'm impressed, from thinking i don't need one to now I'm glad I have one! Although the cartridges themselves are quite expensive, there seems to be good specials every few weeks where you can buy in bulk for less than $10 a cartridge - which given the convenience of safe, sanitary disposal right next to the change table, without having to leave or upset my baby is win win to me!
