50 Uses For Wetbags

Cloth Diapering Eco-Living

Wetbags are one of the most versatile diaper accessories and can be used far beyond diapering years. I've compiled a list of uses for the entire family, every age and lifestyle. If you don't have an assortment of wetbags you are missing out! Thankfully PanBam has wetbags in lots of sizes, patterns, and brands to choose from. Use code NIKKI at checkout for a discount!

Dirty diapers on the go

This is the most common use. Just toss your dirties in your wetbag and they will keep your diaper bag smelling fresh until you get home.

Change of clothes

Especially in the car, you can even leave a bag in your trunk so you've got some spare clothes wherever you go.

Wet pool clothes/towels

A dry/wet bag is great for this. The outside pocket keeps your dry dirties away from your wet dirties in the big zipper.

Trash can liner

Empty your trash wetbag right into a dumpster then wash it to avoid plastic garbage bags.

Pail liner

Use them in your diaper pail and then toss it in the wash with your diapers.

The medium and small sizes work great hanging on the back of a passenger seat or in a small trash can.
