Part Two: Disposal of Diapers
After changing diapers of your baby, Roll them tightly and secure it with the adhesive tape on the diaper. We would recommend you to make a round, small or oblong shape of the diaper. The tighter the diaper will be, the more diapers can be absorbed by the device.
As soon as you have rolled the diaper, open the lid of Diaper Genie and push the diaper through the clamp. Please make sure that the clamp closes again after the diaper has been inserted. If you are done then close the lid.
If your device is full with dirty diapers, you have to unhinge the top from the bottom. Then flip the top to the bottom and reveal the cutter from inside.
Now, pull the liner and press down the cutter. Make sure you have left enough space like 3 to 4 inches in the liner before cutting. Otherwise, you won’t be able to tie a knot at the top of the plastic liner.
Once you have tied the liner, dispose it, wherever you dispose your garbage outside your house.
