Thank you to Bumkins for providing complimentary product samples for us to base this review upon and for providing additional products for our contest prize. All opinions expressed are my own.

Wet bags are widely available nowadays, but many people do not know what wet bags are or how handy they are, or they think they are only used for cloth diapering. The truth is, wet bags can be used by anyone and can be an extremely useful item for any household. Wet bags, or waterproof bags, are used to hold items and keep to keep those items dry or to store wet things to keep them from getting all your other things soggy. Bumkins has a new line of awesome wet bags and they were kind enough to send me a sampling to review.

Bumkins Wet/Dry bag is a genius design that has two zippered compartments to keep your belongings wet or dry. Each compartment is very large and roomy and this bag (12" x 16") would be perfect for cloth diapering on-the-go or for using while swimming. The Waterproof Laundry Bag is a very large wet bag (17.5" x 21") perfect for household use. I use mine for my cloth napkins and other kitchen towels. I love this bag because it will hold days worth of towels easily and then I can throw the whole bag into the washer instead of having to touch all the soiled items.

The Reusable Snack Bags (small, 2 pack) is a nice alternative to plastic zippered bags. These bags keep foods dry, even in a cooler of ice, and will keep any loose items contained and prevent sogginess all day. Finally, the Everyday 3 Pack set contains 3 different sizes of smaller wet bags that can be used for a variety of things such as snack bags, on-the-go cloth diapering or potty training, and more. These bags would be useful in so many ways and would be a great addition to any household.

These bags come in fun prints sure to suit any style, are very well made, and are reasonably priced starting at $4.95. Learn more about them at

    We do cloth diaper, so these would be great for that. I also am potty-training a toddler, so the smaller ones would be great for wet panties. And my older kids would probably use them for swimsuits.
