What should I use to clean Ubbi diaper pail?

In terms of cleaning, do not use abrasive liquid cleaners. If you use liquid such as spray detergent or bleach, rust might develop because the liquid might infiltrate under the screws and start to rust. The Ubbi diaper pail is mostly maintenance free. If you want to clean it because it's dirty all you need to do is to wipe it clean with a dry cloth. If you really want to use a wet cloth, then you need to let it dry out completely, but I would just avoid using a wet cloth altogether.

No, Ubbi diaper pail doesn't require a special bag liner. You can use any regular tall kitchen bag. Not only that feature makes Ubbi economical, it also makes it flexible and convenient. However, specially designed Ubbi biodegradable refill bags are available and sold separately. Ubbi refill bags are biodegradable, which means that the plastic has a bio-resin additive within it. When added to the standard polymer during production, the bio-resin turns the bag into active biodegradable plastic. These liners will break down in landfill and will not leave any toxic residues or chemicals to pollute soil or water after degrading. Alternatively they are compostable and recyclable.
