Diaper Spraying Protector

The following are instructions for a DIY diaper spraying protector. It isnít quite as large or as useful as those available for purchase, but itís free, so you can use it until the one you purchased comes in the mail, or save the money altogether.

You will need:

1) a milk carton, or some other large jug with a handle. The larger the better. (As soon as my economy size laundry detergent bottle is empty, Iíll be using that!)

2) Kitchen shears or a box cutter if you chose a particularly thick jug or carton.

3) Clothespins.

Directions:

Step 1: Cut off the top and the bottom of the bottle.
Step 2: Attach clothespins to the handle side of the bottle.
Step 3: Ignore your husband as he laughs at your harebrained schemes.
Step 4: Slide soiled diaper inside the open bottle from the bottom and pin at the top.
Step 5: Spray down through the top opening with your diaper sprayer until all the poop has been removed from your diaper.
Step 6: Remove clothespins and pull diaper out through the bottom of your spray protector.
Step 7: Squeeze out excess water and place in diaper pail.

I just tried this. It actually worked pretty well. I do not have it in my budget to buy the real deal so this was a nice alternative. I stored it by putting it around my plunger :)

I'm definitely going to have to try this before we buy a sprayer. Little princess is due in July we should be able to figure it out before then!

I am SO glad you posted this. I wasn't sure if I wanted to invest in a spray protector (we have a sprayer), but this is an easy peasy way to make one for pennies!

This is awesome! I have a vinegar bottle almost empty and I will be making this. I've been hesitant to spend money on one in case it's not as great as it seems. They reviews are always iffy.
