Heading out with Bubba can be quite a logistical feat – making sure she has enough diapers to last the outing (checked), wet wipes (checked), a set of extra clothes (checked), bib (checked), water bottle (checked) – ok, shan’t bore you further. Despite prepping all of this, we have been faced in a situation where Bubba decides to take a huge dump and after changing her dirty diaper, we are left with nowhere to dump the dirty diaper. Eeew…
Thankfully, when that happened, my cousin whipped out this poo bag device that was meant for dogs and dispensed a plastic bag for me to place the dirty diaper. I was impressed with the device and subsequently got one on my own for those emergency situations.
So when Sue-Ann contacted me to ask if I would be keen to review the QuickGrab Fragranced Diaper Disposal Bags. I thought why not? I honestly found it a struggle to get nice ones in Singapore and relying on doggy poo bags wasn’t the long term solution. In fact, when we were in Perth, I found some fragranced nappy disposal bags and grabbed one back home.
One of the loveliest sponsored kits I’ve received! 🙂 These fun QuickGrab Fragranced Nappy Disposal Bags and Dog Litter Disposable Bags came with a sweet treat. It was a good perk-me-up for the crazy work week that I’ve been having.
Thanks Sue-Ann for these yummy cupcakes! It was indeed very thoughtful! 🙂
Now, lookie what we have.. a typical emergency situation where we had to change Bubba’s soiled diaper outside. Thank goodness for this nifty Diaper Changing station that house all our diapering essentials and we always have a spare diaper disposal bag that we tuck inside the zipper compartment. This one was an extra one that my cousin got from the mall. Yup, branded for the whole world to see!
I couldn’t wait to try out the QuickGrab Fragrance Nappy Disposable Bags that we have been gifted with so I took the pack out to examine the contents. Okay, a point to note – the packaging came with a perforated corner for quick access to the bags. But guess what this smart aleck decide to do? I went to cut the top of the bag instead. Argh! When I saw the perforated corner, I was like …. Oh well, nothing that a good tape couldn’t fix. So I sealed the top and used the packaging the proper way. Haha.. Thought I share this boo-boo in case you get too eager like moi and end up whipping your scissors to cut the packaging instead.
Ta-dah! Ms Fix-it with the fragranced nappy disposal bags that are now so much easier to retrieve.
Remember I shared that I managed to get another brand of fragranced disposal bags? Well, I decided to do a little comparison with the QuickGrab ones that I received. I most certainly prefer the QuickGrab ones for sure. Here’s why:
Firstly, the QuickGrab Fragranced Nappy Disposal Bag is large enough to hold soiled nappies, wet wipes and tissues. The easy-tie handles help to seal off the germs. Next, I love that the bags are scented with a light powder scent that helps to neutralise any unpleasant odours. Lastly, one most important aesthetic feature I really like about the product is that the black colour of the bag can cleverly disguise its contents.
See what I mean.. Sadly, this peach one can’t disguise the content of a soiled diaper. So, I’m leaving this for home use. Why is there a need to use them at home? Well, soiled diapers really do stink up the bin! So when Bubba takes a huge dump, we prefer to put her soiled diaper in these fragranced bags which seal up the unpleasant smells. That way, we don’t have to do a major change of our common household bin.
These are Bubba’s diapering essentials. Fragranced nappy bag is now a-must especially to contain Bubba’s soiled diaper!
I love the cute packaging of the QuickGrab Fragranced Nappy Disposal Bags and it’s actually pretty compact. But I don’t really want to bring along another item into my seemingly heavy diaper bag, so I usually take out a couple of pieces of these bags and stuffed them into my diaper changing station. Did I also share that despite the slightly thinner material of these diaper bags, they are naturally degradable making it an environment-friendly way of disposing your child’s soiled diapers. I now tuck a couple of these bags into my diaper-changing pack as well as the car for those emergency situations.
On top of serving the purpose of disposing soiled nappies, we also found it useful to whip them out in restaurants where Bubba goes through a whole pile of wet wipes just for a meal. Instead of just leaving a trail of wipes and mess for the restaurant staff to clear, we found the bags useful to store her trash neatly.
QuickGrab Fragranced Nappy Disposable Bags are currently retailing at S$4.50 over at Vaby and Kulily. For a bag of 125 pieces, I think it’s pretty value-for-money for something that you will most certainly use when out with your baby.
Along with the QuickGrab Fragranced Nappy Disposable Bags, Sue-Ann also added a pack of QuickGrab Fragranced Dog Litter Bags for Sparky. How lucky is the fur-kid?!
Sparky goes for his walks twice a day and every time, we walk him, we make sure that we bring at least 2-3 bags to pick up his poo. Well, we ever brought one bag only and have been faced in a situation where he suddenly decides to take another dump minutes after he finished his first. One of us had to scramble home to get another bag to clean his poo. So now, we take more bags along for his walk. Side-note: dog-owners, please be responsible and clean up after your dog takes a dump.
Doggy bags are not new on the market, but I think the QuickGrab doggy bags are. I love that the bags are scented to neutralise unpleasant smells and you know how smelly doggy poo can be. I simply use the bag like a glove to pick up Sparky’s poo and then tie the handles together tightly to seal off any germs. The dark colour conceal its yucky contents and keeps the litter out of sight until I get to the bin to dispose of the item. I really think that they are the most convenient, hygienic and economical way of disposing dog litter outside.
We get complimentary doggy poo bags over at Pet Lovers but they don’t do the job as well as these QuickGrab doggy bags because the handles on these bags really do serve a functional purpose. So if you wanna grab your QuickGrab Fragrance Dog Litter Disposable Bags, you can find out more where they are going to be stocked over here.
The kind folks at QuickGrab team will be giving away a complimentary pack of QuickGrab Fragranced Nappy Disposal Bags which will be delivered to the homes of three lucky readers. I’m going to try out Rafflecopter for the first time, so hopefully it works!
