Ok so my question is what's the best adult diaper for odor protection? I have equate brand that say they lock the odor in with great odor protection but they don't seem to do a good job. After one heavy wetting the odor gets out so im looking for a diaper that can hold a hefty amount and still keep the odor in.

good luck i havent found one yet. um the closest i have seen to being decent were M4's but even then they don't hold long before the smell. but a bit of advice Drink tons of water and it won't smell as bad if at all. the more hydrated you are the less minerals given off in urine and the minerals are what causes odor last i checked. now even clear pee is going to smell eventually but it will take a couple hours to get noticable

The best ones I've found are ones that use a lot of SAP like Tena and Bellisimos. The SAP locks the wetness in so it isn't as exposed to the air.
But more important is propper hydration and diet. Some foods cause pee to just be smelly and eeeew. =>.>=

Asparagus, especially, is very eeeew. Oh, and it also causes a lot of odor.
Many of the preservatives used in canned and shelf-stable foods also cause smelly pee.
B-6 vitiman, which is found in foods like chicken, turkey, duck, salmon, bananas, and potatos. Its also found in some energy drinks. IMHO, Turkey pee is almost as bad as the asparagus pee smell. Just eeeeew =U.U=
Coffee can be another cause of the eeeeews.
Many forms of processed meats can be trouble too. Salami, pepperoni, prepackaged deli hams and turkeys, and bologna can leave a scent in what's spent.
And many spices. Cumin, saffron, thyme, basil, and coriander can leave a strong smell in your wee. Basically any Indian food or Mexican food is a risk. If you like a good curry or enjoy spicy burritos, you're probably going to smell it later... in one way or another... =o_O=

Hi to all,

I'm JD and I am medically moderately bowel incontinent. An old accident damaged the nerves in my anus and rectum so that I lost most of my ability to sense an approaching BM. I have several bowel accidents a week, often during my morning exercise walks. This gave me an opportunity to test the new Wellness diaper where it matters the most – in the real world.

One newly manufactured (late 2013) diaper which I wear is the Unique Wellness diaper. I am working my way through a case of these diapers right now.

The Unique Wellness Superio Signature taped diaper is a completely new and improved version of their previous diaper, which I have worn extensively. It is a white plastic-backed diaper with extremely high gutter guards and leg gathers - particularly important to those who are fecal incontinent. The old model diaper easily can be identified as it has a pale green plastic shell.

Recently I conducted extensive field testing of the new Wellness Superio Signature diaper under real-world practical conditions - while I actually was wearing it. On 19 exercise walks during which I experienced accidents, I walked a total of over 26 1/2 miles with a very messy diaper, sitting on park benches, and it did not leak! In water testing the diaper promises to hold over 44 oz. of liquid, with no press-out.

The odor control is excellent. While fecal odor cannot completely be eliminated, this diaper does an excellent job due to the plastic shell, high gutter guards, and high leg elastics. If it can control bowel odor it can control urinary odor with no problems.

The new Wellness diaper is surprisingly thin and that is to be preferred for wearing to work, wearing with dress clothing, or when in thin athletic attire. For women, the thinness may permit more options in clothing.

I will note that I have no affiliation with the Unique Wellness corporation except as a user of their products.

I think as a general rule plastic-backed diapers do marginally better with this. Plastic pants might also keep the smell in for a while

I've been wearing Goodnites under my cloth diaper at night to contain odor, and these seem to work well. It has made a big difference. The Goodnites seem to have a high SAP content, which as others have said, seems to contain the urine. The plastic pants help as well.

In my experiences Abena products are the worst adding their own odor to any otherwise damp smells though their great diapers in many other ways. Tranquility ATNs seem to contain any objectionable smells the best for me.

very high sap is best for urine odor protection. It absorbs it all and doesn't leave any liquid to aerate and be noticeable. Nam's suggestion of ATN is a good idea, those are some of the highest sap percentage diapers available.

They're very thin when dry for their size though so capacity is only average to slightly above average, and the shell is very noisy with its stiff plastic. But as a result they will swell quite a bit when wet, turning a very thin diaper into a possibly fairly thick diaper. But that's only if you wet a lot. If you don't wet them much, they should do a very good job of urine odor control.

To be honest I'd say too it usually comes down to what you eat and your body hygiene in general.

Besides what Kayley said about what causes a lot of this typical odour, there are some small things that help a lot.

As we know highly concentrated urine smells bad, it will appear dark yellow. You can prevent this by drinking 1,5-2L of water per day anyway.

My best advice is cranberry juice, pure - sugar free of course. I guess it has been mentioned a lot already here, but it's true. Our body tries to wash out the biggest amount of the toxins in our body via our bladder, so a more acidic environment naturally reduces any odour a lot. But it can be difficult to regularly drink enough of it to get the desired effect, usually six up to eight ounces. And it can get expensive too, so cranberry juice supplements are a valid alternative.

Secondly, Vitamin C is another effective urine deodorizer. Mind you though, citrus fruits may cause your urine to be irritating to your bladder again.

And avoid powders that don't do much except make your briefs soggy and being fussy about body hygiene doesn't hurt anyway. ;-)

Odor protection is a major concern for me. I wear a premium European disposable (Abena XP) with a booster pad, and there is still noticeable odor if the diaper is used repeatedly. For this reason, and others, I always wear plastic pant over my diaper. This does a pretty decent job of containing the odor.

Good info in these posts, just want to add that tranquility ATNs actually advertise having antibacterial properties for odor control. It may just be a marketing gimmick as ive not seen any difference between them and other good diaper brands for odor control. Dirty diapers stink regardless of what company makes them. YOU make what makes them smell so just keep in mind that what goes in must come out.

Any diaper that fits correctly should protect against odors well. Especially if you use scented baby powder before taping up. If not, you could always wear plastic pants

My advice: Drink lots of water and avoid powder (After a while, the powder does it's job of keeping your skin "Dry" feeling, which means it's basically urine soaked corn starch. Not the best smelling stuff.)

As far as other things go, if you're drinking enough water and changing at a reasonable rate (IE: More than once a day), the smell should be fairly insignificant. If you need more scent protection, you could consider wearing undies lined with activated carbon over your diaper? (Or just some plastic pants. They'll help, but don't expect miracles)

I keep hearing about plastic pants and was wondering what exactly they are? Like are they actual pants? or just covers for your diaper?

It is not that I endorse this site. They are usually used in conjunction with cloth diapers.

On a personal note: Way to go - Sport, you really know how to make a chap feel the years. Thanks muchly and hope to catch up with you again soon.

This is an easy one, Lilac baby powder. It covers all but the most ridiculously wet diaper smells. I have always used baby powder, but when I first used the Lilac or Lavender I could not believe that it kept wetting smells away so well. I prefer the Lilac sent for my sissy side, but I believe Lavender does a slightly better job.

I've learned a long time ago, whatever I eat or drink, generally comes out in my urine; Asparagus which, though I love, reserve for the weekend for the above mentioned reason, Coffee, Meat of which I've learned a long time ago, yes, the vegetarian wildlife CAN smell a half a mile off, learned to not eat meat for a few days before hunting. and pretty much anything else I might eat/drink with a strong odor.
Being diabetic doesn't help, and I've found that then I down alot of water (more than I need), my body flushes something that gives a sweet odor that has once made my boss puke (I wasn't very fond of it myself). I try not to inflict it upon him.

I only use goodnites, for the little they hold, it holds the smell well. I have smelly pee most of the time, and I don't notice any thing when I use my goodnite. I also usually wear plastic pants because goodnites leak like a sieve when I use them, also helps to contain any smell from leakage. Whenever I BM in my goodnites, they do little to none to help with odor, even with plastic pants which themselves start to smell, the room too. too cold 9 months of the year to open a window so that sucks =/
I had a pair of plastic pants smell for a while until I did some major cleaning, now they stink of cleaning stuff for months now, not sure what to do, I used everything, ends up smelling like what I last used to clean it.
