The Skinny

Kanga Care makes a terrific, generously-sized diaper pail liner that's currently available in 25 colors and designs. The fabric is made of high quality, odor-containing material that feels great to the touch. This liner cinches at the top with an elastic drawstring and toggle.

The Kanga Care Pail Liner has a barrel shape that allows it to hold a huge amount of diapers. It measures 26" tall with a 16" diameter and 54" circumference. The non-ironed/non-glued sealed seems help to keep moisture off, while the waterproof laminate inside the liner keeps the dirty diapers away from the fabric, containing the stench.

The elastic drawstring closure allows the pail to fit in almost any size pail, while the cuff at the top still shows the design/color when folded over the pail. The TPU (thermoplastic polyurethan) polyester material on these liners (minus the drawstring and toggle) are biodegradable, and take about 4.5 - 5 years to break down if composted.

To clean, simply machine wash (without bleach) alongside cloth diapers and other dirty items; then tumble dry low or line dry. These fashionable liners are currently available in 25 colors/designs.

The company also makes Kanga Care Reusable Diaper Liner.

Comparison


Compared to the GroVia Pail Liner, the Kanga Care Pail Liner is bigger and has a 3D design that allows it to stand upright alone when filled (although some reviewers deny this capability), and also includes a toggle and drawstring which makes it easier to cinch and keep fastened to the pail rim. In addition, Kanga Care liners' fabric feels thicker and more plush and durable than the GroVia liner.
