Thanks to Susanne for this Frugal Baby Tip!

I dried stuff on a rack in front of the woodstove in jiffy; back in the day I used to put my thick prefoldson the drying rack (only $16 at Canadian Tire) and they'd take at least 2 days. If you go this route you need at least 3 dozen diapers with maybe a package of flats for back-up.

Or microfibre, it dries very quickly. I didn't even have a dryer until I had two in cloth - totally do-able. If you're hanging them up outside in winter you need to put them out first thing in the morning to maximize sun time.
