I was given a Sangenic nappy disposal thing by a friend- no instructions. I've been trying to figure out how the fecking thing works for the last hour to no avail. There's a cartridge in there. Anyone know how to do it?

Thanks in advance.

Put it in the bin and get nappy sacks, 50p a pack, and a bucket with a lid! Those things just jam up and then you have to get to remove dirty nappies from the mechanism!

Freegle it. Put nappies in normal bit using a sack for poo ones. Or use cloth grin.

Thanks grin I've chucked the thing in the bin. Useless bollox of a thing.

have you actually already chucked it? cos what you do is pull the green bag material through the cassette then gather it together tie it in a knot and hook it over one of the hook thing inside the nappy bin then u put each nappy in and turn it to lock each time.
i find them quite good although everyone on here seems to hate them

We bough only original Sangenic bin and we refilling the original cartridge with foil from shop: They send to whole EU, maybe to other countries - let's write them ;)

They seem to be universally hated on mumsnet but I find them handy - but mine lives under the changing table in the downstairs bathroom. I wouldn't keep it in a nursery.

I loved mine. Did it come with instructions? Use it once correctly and you'll be grand.

As firawalA said, gently pull edge of plastic bag covering out of cartridge. With my one, the covering needed to be coming out of top of cartridge and pulled through middle so that it covered the cartridge. Then tie knot at bottom. Put nappy in on top of knot. Then twist handle until you can't see nappy any more. Brilliant. With a young baby you will need to change it often enough that it won't smell. I now have a toddler so don't use cartridges but it contains wee smells for a couple of days easily.

Get it out of the bin ! I love mine it saves having to take nappies down to the bin. It doesn't smell and holds loads I only
Empty it once a week !

Forgot to say if my little girl has a Poo I use a nappy bag an put it in the Main bin rather than the one in nursery

I use our Sangenic for morning nappies. Most others are cloth and changed downstairs during the day. So for 1 or 2 disposables a day it's a great way to dispose of them without any smell.

There should be instructions on the box for the cartridges.
