Cloth diaper families--how do you store your used diaps until wash day??  Wet pail, dry pail, hanging wet bags, dump everything in the washer?  What is working (or not working for you)?

 

We use a dry pail after rinsing our overnight diapers and poop diapers with a sprayer.  We've been fighting ammonia for about 6 months with the overnight diapers but have been otherwise happy with storing this way.

 

What about you??

I use laundry bags, no pail. I don't like what can grow in a closed, dark, warm moist can with pee and poop residue in it so I use only dry wetbags/laundry bags. I've also read and been told that soaking diapers in wet pails can wear at the fibers, elastic, and PUL. That was ultimately what led to be decided to use only a dry, dirty diaper, storage system.
