Thread: Taking Out The Trash

  1. #1

    Default Taking Out The Trash

    So basically the other day I was taking out the trash bag. There were about 6 used (wet only) nappies in there along with other normal everyday trash.

    I live alone and this is the first time I have thrown nappies away with my other trash (would normally dispose of them secretly one at a time).

    I couldn't believe how heavy the trash bag was compared to normal when there aren't any nappies in there. I mean it was a good weight and at one point I thought the plastic bag might have torn (not the cheap trash bags either).

    I was just wondering if anyone else had found this? Or do I just have freakishly heavy wee? XD

    Your not alone in having heavy wet diapers. When I take off my over night wet diaper it's also heavy when I put it in the trash. I think my

    pee volume overnight and first thing in morning is more than rest of day. I will have at least 4 wettings in it. I don't poop in mine;just use

    potty for poop. I sometimes use two during the day. My trash bag is pretty heavy though everyday.

    A gallon of water weighs about 7 pounds and that's what urine mostly is. So even if you pee about maybe 15 oz into a diaper it's still going to weigh a bit, especially if it's already like 1/4th or 1/2th as a fresh diaper such as bambino's.

    times this by 6 and yeah, it's going to be heavy.

    yes but it kind of fun to throw away some wet diapers and feel how heavy it is.

    Yah we go over our weight limit of 100 pounds every week because of the diapers. Only cost $5 extra tho so its not a big deal.

    Yes, if it feels heavy, they get out a scale and check to see if it went over the 100LBs

    Yep, can always tell when I have wet diapers in the garbage, and normally it's 10+. Diffidently heavier than a normal garbage.

    This is something I noticed when I started wearing 24/7. It makes sense as liquid is heavy and you've got all the regular rubbish in there too. I find using garden refuse sacks instead of standard bin liners helps. They're a lot strong and have better handles at the top which makes them much easier to carry.
