[Mum’s Special #3]: Angel Mel Collections Wet bags for Baby & Mummy [Giveaway #18]

Angel Mel Mama Wonder Wet Bags small

Here’s Part 3 of Mum’s Special series covering a review of Angel Mel Collections Mama Wonder Wet Bags designed for baby and Mummy. baby-mel.com provided me with 2 small wet bags to review, and that completes my wet bags stash. *Grins*

Uses of Small Wet Bags for Baby & Mummy

In case it’s the first time you’ve heard of wet bags, here are some fabulous uses for the small ones:

  • Store baby’s wet and dirty bibs, hankies and cloth wipes
  • Store baby’s used cutlery after a messy meal
  • Store pacifiers, teethers and other small baby items
  • Store Mummy’s used cloth pads

To date, I’ve a “collection” of 1 large and 1 medium wet bags for wet clothes after swimming, 1 medium for cloth diapers, 2 medium ones for Vee’s dining stuff, 1 small for tiny baby stuff, and these 2 new ones for cloth pads.

Wet bags are definitely must-haves for an organised diaper bag. Simply use different prints or colours for different purposes.

How to Handle Cloth Pads Outdoors?

Since I’ve introduced you to cloth pads in the previous 2 articles, some Mums are wondering what to do with used cloth pads outdoors. For each trip, bring sufficient clean cloth pads or liners. Cloth pads can be snapped up into a cute bundle, while liners are more space-saving. Place them in any pouch or wet bag compartment.

After a change, snap or roll the used cloth pad or liner into a bundle and place into a cloth wet bag with waterproof lining. Handle the cloth pad upon reaching home. That’s it, very simple.

About Angel Mel Collections Mama Wonder Bags

This is a summary of the 2 small wet bags I’ve tried:

Small
(Single Zipper)
Small
(Double Zippers)
Dimensions 6″ x 8″ Folded: 6″ x 8″
Compartments Single zipper
with front compartment with snap
Double zippers
Outer layer Designer cotton fabric Designer cotton fabric
Waterproof layer 2 mil PUL fabric 2 mil PUL fabric
Country of origin Made in Malaysia Made in Malaysia

First Impressions

Both wet bags come in lovely designer prints. Trillbrook Pink is very sweet while Chillis make me feel like a hot mama.

The size looks roomy, especially the double zippers type.

I like the handle, which is useful for a quick trip to the washroom for working mums.

One thing that bothered me is the zips that are sewn too far away from the edges. This means odour or wetness could escape, so I can’t place anything too wet in the bag. Luckily cloth pads aren’t very wet items.

My Detailed Review

Rating Guide: Oh no!     ★★ Poor     ★★★ Fair     ★★★★ Good     ★★★★★ Excellent!

These reviews are based on using the wet bags for cloth pads only. Of course, you may use the bags for other purposes mentioned above.

1. Angel Mel Collections Mama Wonder Bags (Small, Single Zipper)

Angel Mel Mama Wonder Wet Bags small

(a) Laundry: ★★★★ This wet bag can be washed on warm or handwashed. Since it’s small, I’m fine with handwashing it together with the cloth pads. After several washes, it has held up well.

(b) Capacity: ★★★★ The waterproof compartment can hold 3 Fresh Moon AIO 11″ cloth pads or 2 Fresh Moon 11″ fleece bodies and 4 x 11″ soakers. For shorter or trimmer pads such as the Lunpads Maxi Pad & Liner, perhaps 1 more could be stuffed inside.

The outer compartment with snap can hold 1 clean pad or 2 soakers.

(c) Performance: ★★★ My trips are usually very short, so I didn’t experience any odour issue upon reaching home.

As mentioned, the zip leaves a gap at the edge, so avoid using the wet bag for very wet items.

(d) Quality: ★★★★ The wet bag is generally well made, except for the zip that’s off-position. I’d need to use them over more cycles to see if the quality lasts. So far so good.

(e) Overall Value: Each Angel Mel Collections small wet bag retails at RM49.90. The price is a little steep for a small wet bag with an off-position zip. (I prefer the double-zipper bag reviewed below.)

What I like about it:

  • Attached handle for added convenience
  • Beautiful designer prints
  • Thick 2 mil PUL to last through more washes
  • Machine-washable for easy maintenance

What can be improved:

  • Position the zip for a more secure closure

2. Angel Mel Collections Mama Wonder Bags (Small, Double Zippers)

Angel Mel Mama Wonder Wet Bags (double) 2

(a) Laundry: ★★★ I’ve handwashed the wet bag several times. The red dye bled a little the first time; the water turned clear upon the fourth rinse.

The unique 2-compartment design is a little tricky to dry, so I flip it inside out to dry the PUL faster.

(b) Capacity: ★★★★★ Each waterproof compartment can hold 3 Fresh Moon AIO 11″ cloth pads or 2 Fresh Moon 11″ fleece bodies and 4 x 11″ soakers. So both compartments can hold about 6 medium AIOs, definitely enough for a full day out.

(c) Performance: ★★★ Like above, my trips are usually very short, so I didn’t experience any odour issue upon reaching home.

Also, the zip leaves a gap at the edge, so avoid using the wet bag for very wet items.

(d) Quality: ★★★★ The wet bag is generally well made, except for the zip that’s off-position. I’d need to use them over more cycles to see if the quality lasts. So far so good.

(e) Overall Value: ★★★★ Each Angel Mel Collections double-zippered wet bag retails at RM63.90. I like the roominess of 2 compartments, and find it better value than the single-zippered bag.

What I like about it:

  • Attached handle for added convenience
  • Beautiful designer prints
  • Thick 2 mil PUL to last through more washes
  • Machine-washable for easy maintenance

What can be improved:

  • Position the zip for a more secure closure
  • Prewash Chillis print until no more colour runs
