My bumware trainers are FINALLY dry!!! OMG, I cannot stand that it takes this long to dry!!! I just ordered some daytime trainers so hopefully they won't take as long to dry. I totally love everything about these diapers except the dang drying time!

My Spin-X water extractor is one of the best investments I ever made. It whips my clothes and diapers around at 3,000 RPM for a few minutes before they go in the dryer, *significantly* reducing the drying time. It gets out SO much water, and uses a tiny fraction of the amount of electricity that a dryer uses, so it pays for itself very quickly. I love it! I got it from www.realgoods.com

I have always meant to start a thread about it, because I think everyone should have one, *especially* cloth diapering mamas!

I don't have any of the night time ones, so I don't know first hand how long they take to dry, but with the flannel and birdseye ones, I don't know if I am crazy, but it seems that the ones with snaps dry a little faster.

You could try throwing a towel in the dryer with your dipes. I found that helps cut down drying time. I have never tried it w/ an aio though, but it could help.
