    I use Febreeze plastic garbage bags which I line a kitchen sized metal garbage container. The Febreeze counters the smells and works very well.

    My house doesn't smell and i'm in diapers. My 20 month old son is still in diapers too.

    We share a diaper pale, basically an average sized kitchen trash can kept in his room. I only suffer from urinary incontinence so no issue with giant man dumps stinking up the place. for my son's poopy diapers, we put them in scented doggy poo bags. We empty the diaper pail roughly 2x per week. There's a glade plug in near it.

    I don't personally smell bc I keep it all trimmed up down there and practice good hygiene. I shower 2x per day, morning and before bed and whenever I change my diaper I clean up with wipes which neutralize the urine smell. I use good barrier creams (no powder). Walking in my house you'd never know anyone wears diapers let alone a baby and his dad.

    Odor control really isn't hard, though when the diaper pail gets real full it does start to smell a bit in my son's room but any smell goes right away as soon as you empty the pail.

    One thing is disposal - and there's been some good advice here. Another is when wearing. I suggest good quality plastic pants (preferably bloomers) that completely cover the diaper. As mentioned bedore, plastic pants do not offer any real leak protection, but they are effective in odour control.

    I'm having a hard time seeing how the house is going to be smelly if you watch out for sources of smell. Pee is going to smell when it leaks out onto clothes or furniture that doesn't get cleaned. Also, concentrated pee smells quite a lot more, so drinking enough water will help, along with less or no coffee. When you have babies, any smell tends to come from the overall experience...they pee a lot and may leak, they puke a lot, they spill and destroy everything (love being a parent, just pointing out the obvious here). My kids beds smelled like pee until they were potty trained because they would end up leaking at night. I don't OCD on that kind of thing, so I didn't change the sheets every time something happened and it would dry and then have some odor. Also, baby diapers are clothlike and those don't contain smell really at all. I would say plastic backed and PUL or plastic pants over them would do it. Of course, at that point, I guess you could do cloth-like.

    For an adult, I think if you just bag up every diaper and you aren't leaking very often, then there should be no problem at all. Why do nursing homes smell like pee? Things may get neglected to some degree. Also, the older you get the less you care what anyone thinks (or smells) and as vision and the body declines, things just don't get taken care of like they should.

    I searched and searched for an 8 gallon bag that was black and thick so I could bag mine and put them directly in the outside can, or sometimes the kitchen can. I don't want the neighbors to see if the outside can blows over or while things are falling into the garbage truck. I found these and have ordered a few times. They are big enough to be able to tie the bag off.

    It's awesome of you to support her in this.

    This is what it boils down to. If you're a dirty person with bad hygiene then your house will smell. If you're a clean and tidy person, it won't.

    Hey, I keep a bin in the corner of a spare room and line it with a black sack. I empty it every few days and everything's good. Black sack can be tied up, put in the rubbish bin, and makes sure things don't fall out when the bin is collected.

    Some incontinence products smell worse that others both when wearing and once you bin it. Bagging them helps. But as MikeJames says above, if you're generally clean, you'll notice any smells when they occur and clear the source away. It's very apparent when you enter a room where the bin is due to be emptied. You don't just miss that smell - it's pretty offensive if left.

    Repeating others here, but it's true that what you eat and drink matters too; stronger pee smells worse so drink plenty of water.

    Makes only a little difference; but I also find that wrapping up two-tab plastic backed products is useful; you can roll the soiled area towards the back that is likely clean; then use the "spare" tapes assuming you've not used them to wrap it all up into a tight little parcel.

    Can't speak for number two accidents.

    I bag mine in plastic bags I get on line - they are cheap and usually called "vest top bags" and are the kind pet stores sell bird seed in - or other loose items. These are better than plastic bags groceries come in because they are waterproof - I have seen them used for bringing aquarium fish home before now- but wouldn't advise it. Grocery bags have holes ot help prevent children suffocating if they put them over their head. They are also easy to tie with a good strong knot.. If left for days they do smell, but by then I have taken them to a outside wheelie bin.

    Beware - some people sell small quantities on Amazon for inflated prices as "incontinence disposal bags" - but they are the same thing.

    I would suggest air freshener and also spray some vinegar into the diaper bin she uses. That will greatly reduce and alleviate any smells or amnonia build up
