This procedure will be followed every time a diaper is changed.
(If program uses "Diaper Genie", see Diaper Genie procedure)
Diaper receptacles must be emptied as many times a day as necessary to ensure the lid will always securely close. Receptacles must also be emptied at the end of each day, no matter how full, and cleaned and sanitized (with Bleach Sanitizing Solution).
*Bleach Sanitizing Solution: Mix one-fourth cup of household bleach to one gallon of water or 1 tablespoon of bleach to one quart of water. This solution must be kept in labeled containers used only for this purpose, always placed out of the reach of children and not near food or drink items. It must be made fresh daily as it deteriorates rapidly, and the unused portion disposed of at the end of the day by pouring down the sink drain or toilet.
