The Skinny

These Planet Wise Waterproof Hanging Bags are adorable and come in many attractive designs and colors. They're convenient and made of anti-microbial materials, but may not be very durable in the long run. Cleaning instructions are very specific, especially with regard to meeting their 60-day warranty requirements.

Performance Comparison


Made of anti-microbial materials with a waterproof PUL inner and locking zipper, the Planet Wise Hanging Bag has hidden seals and two handles for easy use. Measuring 16 x 26.5 inches, these hanging bags are available in over 50 styles/colors and come with a 60-day warranty (for "seams, stitching, elastics, zippers or any other sewing defects. Fading or staining is considered normal wear and tear and does not fall under this warranty," according to the manufacturer.) The zippers are PVC and lead-free, too.

To clean, wash and dry these liners (especially with regard to the warranty), Planet Wise has provided many in-depth instructions on its website. Here are some brief tips, however, to help with keeping these bags intact:
  • Wash bags with dish soap, rinse with water or on warm/cold in washing machine
  • Do not dry in dryer, line dry is recommended
  • Do not wash with diapers (or other items) that have loops or hooks
  • Do not use bleach or detergent with brighteners and/or additives

Planet Wise also makes many brightly-designed diaper pail liners.


The most commonly cited likes for this product are:
  • Attractive
  • Convenient
  • Well-sized
  • Saves space


User reviews frequently note these disadvantages:
  • Not very durable: lining may tear, zipper may come off, seam may come undone
  • Colors fade
  • Not very good at containing smell
