Born in the USA, Baby!: Planet Wise Wet Bag Review and Giveaway

TCBOTB

I have been cloth diapering for three years now and I love it. I have not always loved using cloth diapers and, to be honest, I almost gave up. About a year and a half ago, I realized two things:

(1) I had to keep on trying different diapers until I found the ones that worked for both me and my boys. As much as others could make recommendations, I needed to find what I liked best.
(2) Cloth Diaper accessories are essential. For me this included two things. A diaper sprayer and the right wet bag.

The Planet Wise Wet Bag

I have tried a few other wet bags, but I fell in love with the Planet Wise wet bag right a way. I bought it because I loved how cute it was, but I use it all the time because it is a high quality, well designed wet bag. I have the medium wet bag that I carry in my diaper bag. It is the perfect size for quick trips out and easily holds 1-2 cloth diapers.

Some of the Features of the Planet Wise Wet Bag:
- It is made with colorful, trendy prints and a coordinating inner water proof layer
- The inner layer is sewn and sealed so it will NOT leak!! I have put this to the test and this bag
truly does not leak!
- Zipper closure
- The inner water proof layer is PVC free
-Machine Washable and Dryable
- Resists most odors and stains

This bag is great for cloth diapers, but also can be used for soiled baby clothes, or even as a cute cosmetic bag.

I also own the Planet Wise Hanging Wet Dry Bag. I have had this bag for several months and it has now replaced my diaper pail and pail liner as the main dirty diaper receptacle. The Wet Dry Bag has the same great features as the Planet Wise Wet Bags. But it also has a convenient "dry zippered pocket". This pocket is ideal for storing dry clothes or diapers. My favorite feature of this Bag is that you can hang it. I hang it on the back of my bathroom door. We have a small bathroom, so this bag is a great space saver and does not take as much space as a traditional diaper pail. Like the wet bag, the Wet Dry Bag is also great at controlling dirty diaper odor. It holds approximately 20-24 diapers.

I wash the Hanging Wet Dry Bag with my cloth diapers every other day. I hang it outside on our clothes line with the inner water proof layer out and separated from the outer fabric and it dries up so quickly, that I can use it right away again.

Although I have yet to use this bag for anything other than cloth diapers, this bag would also make a perfect laundry bag for vacations, or for the kids' rooms at home.

  1. Very cool! I won't be leaving my email address as I am not interested in winning this particular give away (we are currently "out" of diapers), but if we are blessed again I may even reconsider cloth diapers. We tried with our fourth and gave up thinking it was just not working. I didn't even consider trying different kinds of cloth until finding the right one. Very good advice!

  13. I think after reading your review of the Hanging wet/dry bag I would definitely want one of those. I have actually been wanting any of the Planet Wise Wet bags for a long time. This would be a cool giveaway to win! If I had to choose a design I would either go with Daisy Dream or Black Curly Q
