Leaks on lock

Our wet bag is made of the same resilient, waterproof PUL that is used for our cloth diapers. When we say waterproof, we essentially mean that the bag won't leak if you happen to put in stuff that is "moisture laden". This means that no matter what your diapers or other gear are soaked in, you won’t need to worry about anything spreading.

Heirloom in the making

All our wetbags are double stitched to prevent leaks- a feature available in no other wetbag on the market. The bottom of the bag is continuous fabric and the top is a convenient drawstring. This allows for easy access and airflow and makes everything crazy durable.

Use it for you or your kiddos

The bag is big enough to store 20-30 diapers. This means it will contain your stash until wash day but it can also be used for laundry and other items at home, on trips, or on the go.

Dont cloth diaper? This bag will still become invaluable.

Beach Bag

Ever go swimming or to the beach with the fam and end up with overstuffed bags of wet, sandy clothes? Make life easier by throwing them all in a large wetbag. The PUL will contain the sopping mess till you get home and you can throw the works of it in the washing machine. No muss. No fuss. Bonus! The cute prints are more stylish than those crocs your spouse insists on wearing in public.

These bags will make you a happy camper.

This bag is a camping necessity.

The large wetbags are big enough to fit clothes and blankets for a weekend outdoors. Instead of the kids’ dirty and wet clothes becoming its own crawling pile in the corner of your tent, everything gets contained in the wet bag. Drag that bad boy home at the end of the weekend and pray the washing machine takes care of the critters that are inevitably crawling in the kids’ pockets.

Once you realize just how useful they are you’ll realize you’re going to need to buy s’more!

Not just for cloth diapers!

Kids are crawling/walking cesspools of gross.

Every tiny human has the capacity for BIG mess, whether it's something they've spilled or some bodily fluid they’ve excreted.

While the large wetbag was made specifically to hold dirty diapers, it also doubles as a convenient laundry bag. Contain the mystery mess on those sweet little baby clothes and keep it from leaking around the house.

Unfortunate fact of parenting #237: You will oftentimes find yourself carrying around a bag of gross. Reason #1599 that Lil Helper is awesome: We’ve made a cute, convenient, leak-proof bag for ya.

The bag is big enough to store 15-20 diapers. This means it will contain your stash until wash day but it can also be used for trips or on the go!
Wash it with your diaper laundry or regular laundry. We recommend washing on cold or warm as water too hot can damage the PUL. Check out this awesome washing hack here!
We recommend hanging to dry but you can always dry on low heat for about 20 minutes. It won't take long!
Typically it’s used to store dirty diapers till wash day but it's certainly not limited to that! You can use it for travelling to carry clothes and blankets. It can be used for laundry and a lot of our customers who are frontline workers like to use it to store their dirty PPE between their travels from work to home.

Oh no my wet bag is leaky! Now what?
Are you adding oversaturated items? - Things that are absolutely soaking wet could leak through the PUL, especially if it's been sitting there a while.

Great for swim wear! We frequent our local pool and this holds all the wet clothing. So happy with the purchase.

Hi Sammy!
What a delightful use for your drawstring wetbag! They are certainly big enough for the whole family at the pool!
Wishing you a great summer full of memories at the pool, and a dry bag home!
Best wishes,
Caitlin @ Lil Helper

Incredibly useful, high capacity!

Absolutely love the large drawstring bag! I originally bought the yin yang bag (which we love as well for travel), but we needed a larger capacity for at home use. Now we just throw the soiled diapers in the large bag and then throw the whole thing in the wash!!! The dark floral pattern is lovely too: doesn’t show any stains and really ties the room together

Hi M.S. and thank you for sharing your love of our large drawstring bag!
We would love to see photos of how the print ties together your nursery - we always feel that just because something is for holding poop doesn't mean it shouldn't be beautiful!
If you ever need any help at all with your products or wash routine, please do reach out to - we are always here to help!

3/4 are good

I have 4 of these bags for storing dirty diapers in between laundry days - and let me say, I LOVE them. Perfect size for our diaper pails and very high quality fabric - traps the wet AND the stink.

Three of them are holding up well, but the fourth’s seams that hold the drawstring in place unraveled during the first wash after purchase. I have a sewing machine so I’ll fix it myself because waste not, want not, but just a heads up to perhaps wash these in a delicates bag or something similar to avoid the issue!

Hi again Kelsey!
I'm very glad you left us this review so we could make this right with you. Our large drawstring wetbags are designed to be super strong and built to last - unforutnately, defects can happen in the manufacturing process and we know that you unfortunately just got a rare lemon.
Thank you for emailing me and giving us the opportunity to make it right! Enjoy your replacement wetbag - Space Dinos is my favorite print too!
Don't forget to reach out to if you ever need help with your products - we love to help!

If you want a Mary Poppins bag look no further

We use this for wet nappies whilst at home and it has never been anywhere near full. We plan to use it when we go swimming/beach as a family and just throw everything in there.

That is a great idea! So glad you are loving your large wetbag, thank you!

Sturdy TABS hang anywhere.

Adjustable tabs keep everything clean, dry and off the floor in locker/shower room after swim (beach, spa day, workout) - ONE bag fits L towel, adult swimsuit and gear PERFECTLY.
