Thirsties review AND giveaway!!!!


So, a few weeks ago I asked a question on our facebook page. Do you use a diaper pail liner or not. I have been wanting a pail bag for some time now. But between moving, unpacking, chasing after two crazy girls, and my "mommy thumb" war wound..... I have not been able to even think about really getting one. I have however found the time to drool over one in particular. Thirsties Modern Cloth Diapers has the most amazing pail liners. They have sooooo wonderfully and graciously sent me a Deluxe Diaper Pail Liner to review AND are offering one of their liners to one of you!!!!

They have a catalog you can request and shop from as well.... for those moments you need something to drool over! An amazingly helpful facebook page, and if you are lucky enough to have a location near you then you can shop in STORE! (Lucky mummies!)

So why have I been drooling over something so silly as a diaper pail liner? Well by all means.... please let me tell you! You see Thirsties Diaper Pale Bag is so crazy handy! Here is what you do:
1. put liner in diaper pail
2. fill with dirty cloth diapers
3. remove bag from pail
4. empty diapers into washing machine
5. toss in diaper pail liner

No more having to touch dirty diapers! (Not that I am grossed out by touching dirty diapers.... I mean I have been pooped on, pee'd on, spewed on.... ect. So a little wet diaper really isn't gross..... but not having to touch one is A O.K with me!) Your hands and dirty diapers will never have to touch again, once thrown into the pail that is! (cue angel music!) How awesome is that? (I totally think it is awesome.) What I also love about these liners is that Thirsties Deluxe Diaper Pail Liner are made from two layers of laminated textiles. Soft and reliably waterproof PUL fabric on the outside and coated nylon on the inside with drawstring closure to keep messes and moisture sealed within. The Deluxe Diaper Pail Liners are designed to fit a standard 52-quart garbage pail that are available at your local department store. I have an old diaper pail and it fits so well! Which I am super happy about since the diaper pail has not seen the light of day since Pooker was about 6 months old!

So here is how a first time (diaper pail liner virgin) did! (I thought you would like some pics!)

1. First, I had to wash my Deluxe Diaper Pail Liner before I stored dirty diapers in it.

(Bye Bye my new friend! See you soon! Please pardon the splint on my hand... I told you I made it girly pretty, see the pink ribbons?!)

2. Then I let it air dry. Didn't have to, you can toss in the dryer too. But hey I had some time!

3. Into the Diaper Pail for you!

4. Fill with diapers.
(Thought I would spare you a picture of that! Kit Kat pooped in a diaper--first time in about 2 months! What's up with that?! hehe)

5. Washing day!
(EASY PEASY! No need to touchy touchy!)

6. Back in the pail you go! See you again soon!!!!! Thank you for your hard work!
(Took a picture... but realized it was just like the picture  in step 3. So see step 3 picture! hehe)

 So what is my verdict? I LOVE IT!! I love how easy it is to use, how I can just carry the bag upstairs to the laundry room and not have to worry about dropping a diaper or even having to carry my diaper pail back down stairs. I love how it fits in my diaper pail, I love the big size of it too! Did I mention you can just empty the bag in the washer, throw it in, and not touch a single pee errrr or poop? (I think I did mention that......)
