Munchkin Arm and Hammer Diaper Pail

Best Diaper Pail for Odor Control

Why people love it
  • Baking soda dispenser neutralizes unpleasant smells
  • Classic look
  • Self-sealing system

A practical baking soda dispenser sprinkles a bit of odor-fighting powder each time you put a soiled diaper in the container. No measuring, stretching, or cutting bags.

Unlike the diaper pails that work well with trash bags, this Munchkin diaper pail requires special bags. Additionally, there’s no foot pedal, so you have to open the lid by hand.


Odor Absorbency: Several parenting blogs, including Lucie’s List and reviewers on BabyCenter, praise the impressive odor control of this diaper pail. A built-in baking soda dispenser releases powder when you throw away a diaper, which is a feature we’ve only seen on Munchkin diaper pails. A laboratory test ranked Munchkin at the top of the diaper pail market.

Ease of Use: Caretakers say it’s a cinch to use this Munchkin diaper pail, and we agree. We’ll admit we were surprised how easy it is to operate since it doesn’t have a foot pedal. Replacing the baking soda dispenser is also simple.

Features: The Arm and Hammer baking soda dispenser, which neutralizes odors by sprinkling soiled diapers with powder, is this diaper pail’s most well-known feature. Other features include the single-handed operation, which is great when you’re holding a baby, and the self-sealing system that traps unpleasant odors.

Price: The Munchkin Arm and Hammer diaper pail is a moderately priced diaper disposal system that costs around $50. Expect to shell out extra cash for custom liners and baking soda dispensers, too.
