We had my 8mo old nephew for the week and he is in disposable diapers. We just threw them in our kitchen garbage as we are not really set up to dispose of diapers in a more effective way. We live rurally and do not have a garbage service, so we take our own garbage to the dump, but only go as often as absolutely needed because you pay per trip. We can't store anything outside as it would attract animals such as bears and would create a way bigger problem.

Since our nephew left we removed the garbage from the house, but still for the life of us could not get rid of the stench! I have tried odour eliminating sprays, baking soda and vinegar, I even rubbed lemon wedges against the plastic and left it outside to 'air out'

It is not as strong of a smell, but I think it's still there. Any tips on how to remove this smell?

I had that problem with Josh's diaper pail. The thing I found that worked best to get rid of the dirty diaper smell out of the plastic pail was to put it in a half full tub of hot water mixed with Lysol Concentrate Disinfectant (Brown bottle with yellow label and white lid) and let it soak. I did 30 minutes then flipped it over to get the other side and soaked another 30. I couldn't smell the dirty diaper smell after that.
