Ellie Miller and Melissa Gould: Yes. And no. We are happy to report that there are many fabulous diaper pails on the market, and they seem to be getting better. By fabulous, we mean they really do eliminate odors and are easy to maintain. Some require brand specific bag refills, which can get pricey. If you’re on a budget, you can find some good pails that use regular kitchen-sized garbage bags. If any smell is too much for you, keep in mind that a walk to the outside garbage can do the trick just as well.
