Best Nappy Bin UK
A nappy bin is something that you will need, but you probably haven’t given much thought to. Some people don’t realise that there are some differences between your regular kitchen bin, and a nappy bin. There are. Nappy bins are designed to keep the smell of dirty nappies away from the rest of the room. This is why they are a small, but invaluable tool. Especially in the early days and months of parenthood.

The Angelcare Nappy Disposal System is a sleekly designed nappy bin. It’s available in three colour options – white, blue and pink. However, more important than how it looks is how it works.
Firstly, it’s really easy to use, and it’s really easy to replace the bin lining cartridges. The instructions are simple, and incredibly easy to follow. When you have the cartridge fitted, you can just open the top, and put the used nappy in the bin. Closing the top also closes an air seal in the bin, which helps contain the smell.
When the bin is full, you use the cutter to cut the bag, tie it up, and dispose of the nappies in your general waste bin. You tie the bag in the nappy bin, and start using it again. Another massive plus for the Angelcare Nappy Disposal System is that the liners have a germ-control antibacterial layer.
