3.0 out of 5 stars Expensive Yes: But Here's How to Triple the Life of the Refills, January 21, 2013

This review is from: Playtex Diaper Genie Refills for Diaper Genie Diaper Pails - 270 Count (Pack of 3) (Health and Beauty)
There are hundreds of reviewers who rightly complain about the price of these refills. I'm quick to join them. However, the Daiper Genie just flat-out works too well to retire so here's what we do to save money.

When the Genie gets full, I pull the bag out and use scissors to cut the bottom knot off and let all the dirty diapers fall into a trash bag or grocery bag, which I then tie up and toss in the outside garbage. I then simply retie the Genie Refill bag and use it again. It doubles (or triples) the life of the refills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grossest testament to the Diaper Genie, February 27, 2016

This review is from: Playtex Diaper Genie Refills for Diaper Genie Diaper Pails - 270 Count (Pack of 3) (Health and Beauty)
This is one of the grossest stories but is a testament to how well this product works. I am one who buys the environmentally friendly product most of the time but when our kid got to the stage of really stinky diapers, we couldn't take it and bought the Diaper Genie. After our kid was done with diapers, someone stashed the Genie in our garage to use for our next kid. Well about 2 years later, the next kid arrives and we pull the Genie out of the garage to dust off and use again. Guess what we found?! We found old diapers in it - not infested with bugs, not stinking outside the bag at all, and the bag was intact. They were in there for years and nobody noticed! Of course when we cut the bag off to throw it out, we were hit with quite the stench but it was remarkably contained all that time. We were very impressed and grossed out at the same time.

In general, the diaper genie is good and very helpful for our nursery.
These refills are genuine and fit, so they get the job done.

My only gripes are the following two things:
1. I always find myself with a lot extra bag than there is space in my diaper genie. Not wanting to be wasteful, once the diaper genie fills up, I just start dropping dirty diapers in and tying them off. So I have a snake of diaper pouring out the top of the genie - not very nice looking.
2. Difficult to explain, but there is a plastic horizontal "guard" that you pull the diaper bag around (it's left behind when you peel away the tab to open the refill). They sometimes get awkwardly caught on the bag as I'm pushing a dirty diaper in - just a strange design choice that makes what should be super easy a little frustrating sometimes.
