The Skinny

Kissa's Antibacterial Pail Liner was discontinued in 2015.

Kissa's Antibacterial Pail Liner (by Kissaluvs) is a basic, affordable, easy-to-clean and effective way to contain the smell of dirty cloth diapers. It's large and has a sturdy elastic top rim that allows it to fit over many diaper pails or trash cans. However, it doesn't close or cinch at the top, and has more of a plastic feel than most of the other liners included in our Best Cloth Diaper Pail Review.

Our Analysis

This simple Kissa's Antibacterial Pail Liner is made from high quality antimicrobial SILVERPLUSĀ®-treated (Okeo-Tex Standard 100 compliant) PUL (polyurethane laminate), with the fabric side in. Measuring 30 x 24 inches, this pail liner has elastic at the top and, of all the pails in our review, best fits the simplehuman 38 Liter Rectangular Step Can.

Available in White only, these simple liners can be cleaned in the washing machine, and line-dried or on low-heat in the dryer; the manufacturer also claims that you don't need to wash this liner every time you wash the dirty cloth diapers. Unlike several other liners included in our Cloth Diaper Pail review, however, the top does not come together by a drawstring, toggle, zipper or any other closing mechanism.
