Yesterday our whole office went to Indigo Joes for lunch. As the conversations evolved around me, some of the ladies began talking about baby stuff. So naturally I tuned in, hoping to pick up some nugget of information for future use. Apparently I looked more interested than I really was when one of them looked right at me and said, "You know what you need? A Diaper Genie."
--First of all, I can't imagine why I would need anything called Diaper Genie right now, as I am perfectly capable of using toilets, urinals, and the occasional big tree in the woods.
Jake (my buddy, and only other guy in the office without a kid) and I looked at each other and both shrugged...
"What's a Diaper Genie?". . . (Hell if I know.)
They shook their collective heads and laughed at us...
When I got home I decided to do a little research... here's what I learned.
The Diaper Genie is a trash can...
Oh, but there are two to choose from. Diaper Genie II and the Diaper Genie Twistaway. There was a list of "features" with each model.
Here are the Diaper Genie II's coveted features...
Helps keep your nursery odor free with Diaper Genie® II’s patented AIR-TITE™ System...
(So it has a lid...)
Uses the revolutionary AIR-TITE™ System, a seven-layer odor barrier film technology and the Push-N-Lock clamp, that seals odor away better than the competition
(I'll admit the "revolutionary seven-layer odor barrier film" is kinda cool...)
Has an incredibly easy-to-use, one-hand design system (unlike the original Diaper Genie® System, no twisting is required)
(One-hand design? How many diapers require two hands to hold?)
Holds more than 30 small diapers
(But how many of the monstrous "two-handed" diapers will it hold?)
Comes fully assembled and ready to use
(it's a trashcan, right?)
No Batteries Required
(see the previous comment)
Plus, Diaper Genie® II System is incredibly easy to use with its one-hand operation – important when parents are holding a child and trying to throw away a diaper at the same time.
(I can't fathom what is so damn hard about throwing away a diaper in a trash can, and why a two-handed person is that much better off than a one-handed person, unless they are the massive two-handed diapers previously mentioned)
I'm still on the fence with this one, but may be worth it just for the fact I don't have to put it together and it doesn't require batteries.
