Diapering_: No Pail Liner

Thanks to Ness for this Frugal Baby Tip!

What is this fascination with lining the pail? Is it for the ease of transferring dirty dipes to the wash or protecting a plastic bucket? 'Cus if it's the latter, then I don't get it. If the pail gets poopy, hose it out. If it gets smelly, air it out (or sun it out). It is a receptacle for poop-- why must it be sparkling clean?

I used daughter #1's bucket for about 2 years, and she stood on the lid a few times and broke it. I needed a bigger pail, anyway, so I have recycled the old pail into daughter #2's clothes hamper. In fact, I used it for dirty clothes, with no lid, for a couple weeks before I realized that it actually needed to be scrubbed out a bit. There was no smell.
