Holds smells in well but doesn’t get very stinky itself so you don’t have to wash it very often. Easy to empty into washer. Sometimes urine or poop gets on the top opening as the diaper goes in which is annoying. I also find it works best if you hook the top loop over the hook the hanger is on rather than on the hanger itself.
I am very pleased with this diaper pail. I love how the zipper is at the bottom, so you can just dump the dirty diapers into the washer. My husband was skeptical that it would keep smells contained, but it has! I love that it's machine washable too. I actually ordered another one so I would have a back-up to use while the other one is being washed!
I so want to give this product 5 stars, but I had the zipper fail on my first Perfect Pail after about 4 months of use. Thankfully it was still covered under GroVia's awesome warranty so they sent a new one to me, no questions asked. Fingers crossed this one lasts longer. Otherwise we love it. No funky smells and easy to clean. Just toss it in with the diapers. But maybe have a back up option for handling dirty diapers, if the zipper fails it's pretty useless.
