So, I see a lot of threads asking about not smelling bad when wearing diapers... But nothing about the things you lie down on or sit on when wearing diapers.

It seems that anything that comes in contact with a diaper, ends up getting a "diaper smell". So, if you sleep in diapers, your bed starts to smell--or if you sit on a chair in just a diaper, it will get this smell too.

In order to avoid this, any time I feel like diapering up, I always wear something overtop of it so that it's just a little bit of extra laundry rather than the super-annoying task of washing furniture. But I have a feeling that there is a better way than this.

How do you all deal with the things you sit on? Is it just an accepted thing that happens? Do you just avoid couches or harder-to-wash furniture? Or is there a type of diaper that doesn't have this problem maybe? ^^'

When wearing to bed I have a plastic sheet a put over it, stops any leaks from ruining the mattress and keeps everything smelling nice. For chairs, couches ect, i just throw a big blanket over them

My favourite chair gets a bit smelly now and then but febreeze helps. My wife brought me a pad from work to put in the chair as this can be washed. Our bed is well protected so not a problem.

This, although I don't sit on any of the living room furniture when I'm wearing and using. I stick mostly to the basement mancave where the furniture is comfy, but also either waterproof or expendable. I've got a window fan arranged so I can clear any smells down there in a matter of minutes.

If it's just the wet nappy being in contact with the furniture but not actually leaking, any smell is probably only noticeable if you get very close to it and will fade away in time. (If you mess, which I don't, then that's probably a different matter...)

If it's actual leaks, that's where more persistent issues could arise, especially in hard or impossible to wash items. To be safe, use waterproof seat pads and mattress covers, they will help prevent any other transfer of diaper smells as well.

This is never a problem for me actually. I mean not to a bad extent. As long as you are not leaking, you should be fine.

That's true for normal humans. However, if you live with a menopausal woman, their sense of smell becomes superhuman for some things, and disappears for others. Ever notice that old lady perfume is usually applied by the quart, yet they can't seem to detect it? Anything else, like a cigarette 7 blocks away, they're all over it.

What you mean leaks?

Nope, no leaking involved here... Basically, when wet, a diaper will make the things it touches smell. The effect also accumulates and becomes more potent over time.

Honestly, I could put up with it, but there are some things that I don't really want to dirty even if I do. It's also not really the kind of thing I would want to subject guests to either.

So, the idea is to either keep things clean, or keep them easy enough to clean so that my apartment doesn't smell too much like diapers--and I had a few ideas how to do that, but I wanted to see what sort of things ADISC does...

I'm not too big on messing either... This is about what odor a wet diaper leaves behind. It's why even if you just wet, wherever you store dirty diapers might smell like dirty diapers after throwing them all out.

I haven't really covered much, but you know what? I probably should..!

I mostly avoided it initially because blankets are kind of annoying to wash when you live in an apartment. But now that a have more than one, that's less of an issue.

Aye, this is pretty much what I'm considering. I wasn't sure if there was some trick that might have been common knowledge, so I wanted to check before breaking out the Febreeze and cleaning supplies.

Ah!

I don't really have enough furniture to dedicate some of it like that... But that's a pretty good way to do it, it sounds. ^^

Fabric softener sheets do wonders. Fabreeze is a good addition. But I think the real key is to make sure you are changing often.

Don't let yourself wear a diaper that has been wet a long time and go sitting around on cloth furniture. It certainly absorbs the smell even if you don't leak. That is just the honest truth about most fabrics. They absorb not only moisture, but smells as well.

There is a difference to covering up smells and removing them. Utilizing sprays such as resolve or other cleaners will remove the smell and not just cover it up.

But bottom line, wear a good diaper that isn't going to leak and even plastic pants that will help contain not just leaks but the smell of urine. When wet, change frequently. That is going to be your best bet!

And should you accidentally have leakage, I recommend the accidental spillage of some cologne or perfume. Better to have it covered up then others wondering what is that distinct smell? :detective3

Well, I wouldn't use Febreeze on its own, but in addition to cleaning supplies.
And fabric softener sheets work? I'll have to try that out. Thanks for the suggestion! ^^

I agree changing is kind of a big deal too, it's the best way to minimize the smell effects of diapers in general--that's a really good point..!
Doing that and watching the things I drink are two things I'd likely do if I decided not to wear things over my diapers and decided not to set anything extra up.

I wear plastic pants. It helps a lot, but wearing actual pants over the top of those is always wise, too.

I guess it's cause I never sit on furniture directly with a wet diaper. Always wearing clothes. So there is a layer between me and the furniture. But as I said, I really don't have this problem. XD I also rarely wear a diaper that even stinks to begin with. The moment I smell it, it ruins the experience for me so I generally change before it could even possibly stink up any furniture. The exception being the bed, but I use a bed cover so it's all good.

My computer chair gets the worst of it, for all that the fabric is supposed to be impermeable. After actually throwing one chair away because of it, I ended up sourcing some of the urine stain/smell neutraliser fluid that is used in nursing homes - it works pretty well. You can get something similar at most large pet stores.

Ha ha! :laugh: That's so true! :clapping:

Seriously, what is it with some "older" women and their insensitivity towards throat-gaggingly floral dousings in the olfactory stimulants of malevolent perfumiers?! I thought that was an English thing!

Anywiggle, I use disposable 60 x 60 cm Tena Bed pads, and have a washable pad on my computer chair. I don't really need them, but it's reassuring to know that you're "protected" and no furniture could ever be ruined.

And I never wear a fragrance. Just shower and soap keeps me non-stinky.

Alright. It's settled then!

I'll just cover the things I sit on and maybe take a trip to the pet store in case something goes horribly, horribly wrong.

Thanks all..!
