I do not use a diaper pail, I just put my used cloth diapers straight into the washing machine with no water (I have a front loading).

Then every two days I do a rinse and short spin the diapers with cold water (and a bit of vinegar).

Rockin Green Cloth Diaper and Laundry Detergent (Funk Rock Ammonia Bouncer), 16oz - gets rid of stinky smells while keeping you green - Suitable for both cloth diaper and general household laundry

Then do a hot wash with organic detergent (only a TBSP).

Hang the diapers to dry and start all over again.

Any smell is trapped in the washing machine and I never usually need to do laundry more often then every two days so it works out perfectly.
