FAQs


What makes Ubbi™ diaper pail better at controlling odor than the other diaper disposal systems?

Most diaper pails are made of plastic. The problem with plastic is that it absorbs odors and leaves a lingering smell that cannot be cleaned away. So even when the pail is empty the odors are still there. These pails also fail to contain the smell because they are poorly sealed allowing odors to leak out even when the pail is closed. Ubbi diaper pail is made of powder-coated steel which odors cannot penetrate. Rubber seals are used to prevent leaks and keep odors locked in when the pail is closed. Its innovative sliding lid design minimizes air disruption to prevent odors from escaping ensuring optimal odor control.
