How Much Does a Diaper Genie Cost?
Disposing of baby diapers can sometimes be a challenge. Between the amount of waste and the smell, the inconvenience can add up rather quickly. The diaper genie, a trash can made specifically for diaper disposal, may be able to help. The system works in a unique way where the user will be able to place a customized bag in the Genie. When the foot pedal is activated, the Genie will open up allowing you to dispose of the diaper. Once the top lid closes, the lid in the middle will close as well to prevent the smell from lingering around the room.
