Perfect fit for the potette plus, more absorbent than I thought!,
This review is from: Kalencom Potette Plus On the Go Potty Liner Re-Fills 10-Pack (Baby Product)
First of all, I want to start off by saying I love recycling and have done the reusing of grocery bags with everything possible, potties included. Grocery bags work great if you're alright with all the added bulk. But with the Potette and Potette Plus, it's a very compact potty and the extra bulk can be obnoxious when you take it shopping/zoo/hiking/park or sometimes even annoying in the car. I use the grocery bags (preferably the thicker Target ones) with either a maxi pad (weird, but it works) or napkins (who doesn't have napkins in the car?) in a pinch. I tried to re-use gallon sized ziploc bags, but they were too small. If I am taking our Potette Plus out and about with us, I MUCH prefer to have these. Much more absorbent than they look. Faster to use. Just very convenient.
The bags could stand to be a little thicker, but so far, I've never had a leak. I also immediately find a trash to toss it in instead of leaving it in the car so this could be why I've never experienced a leak. If I can't get to a trash can, I do have a washed out plastic butter container that I'll set it in awaiting a trash or home trash, just in case.
Another reviewer mentioned letting their kid pee 4 times in this, but wow, I could never do that with my daughter. She soaks the pad included and then some in just one pee, plus I don't want to take the chances of using these bags beyond their limits (they're only meant for one bathroom break) and spring a leak.
The bags fit perfectly over the potty and hook on the super sturdy "feet" of the potty. At first my daughter did not like sitting on the bag so I had to MacGyver a solution. I cut down a 1 gallon ice cream bucket so it would fit perfectly under the potette plus with the feet down and locked, put the potty bag inside the bucket and over the edges of the bucket, then put the potette plus over the top of the bucket (with feet in place). That way, she was sitting on the rim of the potty and not the bag. Once she got completely comfortable with the Potette Plus, I was able to put the bag in the as directed position.
I like that they come in the smaller 10 packs so you can fit them inside the potette plus bag (that comes with the potette plus), along with hand sanitizer, flushable/biodegradable wipes, and even a couple spare sets of panties.
The price is a little out there most places, but reasonable here and very worth it if you travel and want quick potty breaks. Using grocery bags and putting paper towels/napkins/etc in them takes quite a bit longer to get situated than these.

Thanks for mentioning the ice cream bucket trick! I have a Baby Bjorn that my daughter has been getting familiar with, and I want a spare for another bathroom when we start training and to have in the car later, but I didn't want to have to use the plastic bags at home (and she's not ready to use it as a toilet topper). I will *totally* have to try the ice cream bucket.
