Re: I realize not all of us cloth diaper purely for economical reasons, but I found t

I haven't seen my energy bill change when we take "time off" compared to when we are using cloth, and we line dried all summer, and now that I'm drying in the dryer for the winter, I'm still not seeing a change... so as cool as that calculator is, it hasn't been my experience.

editing to add:
I don't do a pre-rinse (I rinse the poop diapers as I go), just a wash cycle, and an extra rinse. My old top loader cycles in about 20 minutes. When I dryer dry fully, it takes 90 minutes in my dryer.
