The Playtex Diaper Genie is one of the staples for any mom with a baby in diapers. I mean it’s great, isn’t it? It locks away those smelly, poopy pampers while being discrete and compact. The only thing not so great about this device are the price of the refill bags! A pack of 3 refill bags will run you about $17 and of course the larger the size of the diaper, the less that will fit in the genie. As you can probably imagine, this gets so expensive over time.
This is why I have decided to come up with a hack that I will share with you. Go out and get some trash bags from the dollar store, yes, I said the dollar store (Dollar Tree is my fav). The 13 gallon size kitchen bags will do the trick.
First and most importantly, make sure you do not discard the diaper genie refill ring, otherwise, this hack will not work.
