The Skinny

Planet Wise makes many attractive wet bags that are most convenient for cloth diapering. If cared for especially well, these bags are able to contain any foul smell and keep moisture in. They are offered in two other versions (the Wet/Dry and Roll-Over) as well as in 3 different sizes.


Our Analysis

According to Planet Wise, their Wet Bags are sealed in such an innovative way as to make it impossible for liquids to escape. However, the outer layer is not waterproof, and may need to be line-dried and cleaned well to avoid odors.

Available in 50+ designs/colors and three sizes: Small 7.5"x10", Medium 12.5"x16", Large 17"x21" (we tested medium), only the Large size comes with a color coordinating snap handle. Planet Wise designs their products to live up to their name; as such, these bags are anti-microbial, PVC-free, and Lead-free (the zippers), as well as American made.

Items to also consider adding to your cloth diaper stuff include Planet Wise Wet-Dry Bag (with a zipper on the outside for dry items) that hangs or Planet Wise Pail Liner for your cloth diaper pail.
