Product Details

Product Overview

Tots Bots  nappy bucket has been designed to help keep prying toddlers out and any niffyness in.

The Tots Bots bucket lid is secured by four locks to prevent the lid being easily removed by nosy children.  The locks however are flexible enough to be opened with one adult hand while you're holding the soiled nappy in the other.

The bucket has a strong carrying handle which makes it easy to get nappies from changing station to washing machine without getting your hands messy!

Use in conjunction with the Tots Bots nappy mesh for the ultimate easy nappy storage to washing machine.

Size

16 Litres (approx 12-14 nappies)

How do I use it?

We strongly recommend you use a nappy mesh with your nappy bucket as this makes wash day far quicker and easier.

 

Dry Pailing V Soaking

Traditionally nappies would be soaked in a bucket before washing, but we don't recommend this now. Just place your nappies in a dry bucket (dry pailing) until you're ready to wash them and then your washing machine will do all the hard work. It is much easier to load the nappies into the washing machine from a dry bucket and you can also keep your nappy wraps in the bucket along with the nappies. There will be no significant smell from the nappy bucket. Do not leave your soiled nappies in the nappy bucket longer than 2 days before washing, as extended time left soiled can damage nappy fabrics.

If you decide to soak your nappies you should only use plain water. Soaking does effectively pre-clean the nappies a bit, which helps keep stains from setting. However, the downside is that the nappy bucket may smell when you take the lid off, you also have to dispose of the dirty water and soaking can damage modern fabrics, elastics and fastenings. It is also important to remember never to soak your wraps as this will cause them to lose their waterproofing.

Care & Warranty

Tots Bots Care Guide

  • Prewash nappy twice before first use. Nappy will reach full absorbency after approximately 10 washes.
  • Wash dark colours separately
  • Wash with non-bio powder or TotsBots Potion
  • No harsh stain removers or bleach. They may cause irritation and can damage the waterproof membrane
  • Don't use pastes of nappy powder directly applied to nappies as this is too concentrated.
  • No fabric softeners. They will reduce absorbency.
  • Max wash temperature 60 degrees.
  • Ideally line dry or tumble dry on cool.
  • If using a nappy cream always use a nappy liner - ideally a disposable paper liner.

Tots Bots Warranty

Tots Bots offers a 1 year guarantee against manufacturing faults. The 1 year guarantee starts from when the item was purchased, not first used. If you believe you have an item with a manufacturing fault, you will need to contact us with details and photos of the fault. We will confirm your purchase date from our records. TotsBots may require the items to be inspected before a warranty decision is made, we will inform you if this is required in your case.  TotsBots warranty decision is final.

Tots Bots Warranty is VOID when:

  • Using harsh stain removers, biological detergents or bleaching
  • Boil washing
  • Continually tumble drying on a warm or hot heat, or directly on radiators or similar
  • Adding vinegar or sodium bicarbonate to the wash

Excessive laundering can destroy elastic, destroy the water repellency, make the fabric go bald, reduce the performance of your nappies, drastically reduce the lifespan and will render your guarantee void. 

The use of Tots Bots Potion detergent is recommended but not required for warranty coverage.

Tots Bots' decision on any warranty claim is final.

The nappy bucket is quality and I imagine will have a very good use of the locks when our baby gets older and starts to discover everything.

Good size although I could do with it being bigger but fits all nappies for a every other day wash.
Toddler did figure out how to open with mesh bag inside as it’s not as secure. But has soon lost interest and no more fiddling.

Great nappy bin
Rating:
21 December 2020  | 

I was very pleased as before I was just using a normal bin which was no good for reusable nappies. This keeps all the ammonia smell in.

My little girl can’t open it, but it is easy enough me to open with one handed.

It’s fairly big, but saying that the liner doesn’t touch the sides so the bin doesn’t smell bad or get dirty.

Excellent bucket - locks come in handy
Rating:
03 December 2020  | 

Very good for containing nappies. We manage about a day and a half between washes but that’s because our baby needs feeding and changing through the night. I’m sure the locks will be useful when our little one is mobile and curious however we found the locks were invaluable when we moved house recently. We were able to put the bucket on the van with no fear of spills. Would recommend to all.

Really useful nappy bucket
Rating:
06 April 2020  | 

This bucket has been an essential tool in our journey to reusable nappies. Bought this with 2 mesh bags and makes it so much easier as put all the nappies in the bag in the bucket and on wash day in the whole lot goes with no hassle. Then there’s a spare bag for when the first one is in the wash. For us the clip on lid is handy but not essential as found a handy storage space on a shelf out the way. Would highly recommend this nappy bucket.

Good size bin for our needs. We currently use 2-3 reusable nappies a day for each twin and are hoping to increase this. There will be plenty of space. I tend to leave the lid unlocked at the moment for ease of putting the nappies in, but will use the locks when they are on the move.

Only started using recently. Have it in the living room. At the moment i only use cloth during the day so I do laundry every 4th/5th day. Zero bad smell in the room. Didn't realise how good it was until I opened it for the first laundry. Definitely recommend

Rating:
12 July 2019  | 

Does what you'd expect it to, I don't find it smells at all when the lid is on. Works very well with the tots bots mesh bag liners, I would definitely recommend getting them too as it saves you touching old soiled nappies.

I have given 4 stars as I would probably like it to be a bit bigger. My baby is only 6 wks old so we are changing nappies very frequently and fill a bucket in just over a day, and I'd like to wash every other day. I suspect (hope!) when baby is out of the newborn phase and we are using fewer nappies it will be spot on.

Great nappy bucket, does what it’s meant to, not a lot that can go wrong with a bucket though! Nice to have the clips to fasten the lid shut, our little one is still only weeks old but I’d guess for a toddler would be easy to open. Keeps smells in but probably not small people out!

Does what you would expect from a nappy bin.

Conversely, it actually works better if the lid isn’t left on top loosely and only locked when necessary. This seems to stop nasty smells completely.

Great little nappy bin. I change my little ones nappies in her room and often she plays after when I sort out her nappy or tidy up. She has just learnt to pull up and is using this bin to help her stand but thankfully she can't get into it, so I can relax knowing she's not going to get into a bucket of dirty nappies.

Rating:

Ultimately it’s a nappy bucket and it does the job! It’s big enough for washing every other day. I don’t find that smells are quite as contained as I would like (especially if using a mesh bag as dampness from nappies makes the bag damp and the bag hooks over the side...so is exposed). The locks are a bit flimsy and I doubt will be toddler proof, but it is easy to open.

Good size allowing me to store a good number of nappies, wraps, liners, boosters and wipes before washing later in the week. The lid fits snugly- I used a few drops of essential oils but couldn't smell these or the nappies when the lid was shut, even without using the 4 clips. Broad enough that it's not been knocked over...yet!

Quality

02 May 2018  | 

Sturdy good quality. The lid can be locked down so will be relatively child safe when baby gets bigger. Not sure yet! I wish the lid was attached it can be annoying to take it off completely and place down when using. Just about squeezes two days worth of all in one cloth nappies plus wipes and the odd small towel. Contains smell. Both little lamb and tots bots laundry bag fit. Tots bots bag is easier to fit on but little lamb is stronger and better quality. Easy to clean.

Rating:
13 November 2017  | 

This is a nice sized bucket and perfectly serviceable, but I bought it to stop my inquisitive toddler getting in and chucking out the dirty nappies. Unfortunately it failed at this task. The little catches just don’t grip strongly enough. One or two barely ‘lock’ and the others are easily dealt with by my son. If your small is fairly persistent it’s probably not going to help, but worth a go!

17 October 2016  | 

I was using a large wet bag that I could hang up to keep away from little hands! But it started to smell.

This bucket is great as the four locks means I don't have to worry about him getting into it. Even once he has worked them out (if he does) I at least have until he undoes four to stop him!

It's a good size too, so when it's full that's a decent amount of nappies for the wash.

I was so glad to get this bucket, it holds about 15 nappies for us. Keeps the smells in and having the handy mesh bag to with it helps at washing time. I think it will be really good for when my little gets bigger as the clips on the lid should prevent any unwanted exploring occurring.

I read some reviews about other buckets where customers wished they'd bought buckets with clips to prevent toddlers getting into them, so I decided to buy this one & am so glad I did, since I got into cloth nappies at the inquisitive toddler stage. It fits enough nappies to wash every 2 days, the mesh bag fits perfectly into the rim & seems to keep the smells in well.

Rating:

I love the fact you can lock the lid, keeping out little "helping" hands! It's also strong and compact which has meant we have been able to take it camping and it didn't take up too much space, along with the fact it also takes my sons weight as he likes to climb! The only thing I would change is that for home I would like a slightly bigger one. It would be perfect if you could get them in different sizes.

Perfect for the job. Only 4stars coz I have a newborn so risk of him getting into the bin and flinging dirty nappies everywhere is quite low but a pedal bin version would've been handy at this stage. It's no bother though. I just don't lock it. It's quite bulky too if you have a tiny nursery space like we do but then it needs the capacity to fit enough nappies in.
