Whenever I Google which is best, cloth vs disposable diapers I always get two different answers. Some bloggers claim cloth diapers are the way to go with their environmental factor. Yet cloth diapers are made of cotton, one of the worst users of water. Disposable diapers cost less using coupons and will pay only $0.10/ diaper. So which is really the best option?
After a long debate my husband decided to create a calculator which considers the cost of cleaning diapers that often gets missed and how much you pay for disposable diapers.
The final truth came out – It depends on your lifestyle, how you wash and how much you pay.
Plug in your numbers check out the cloth vs disposable diaper calculator that is designed to estimate your costs based on your lifestyle. In the meantime see for yourself which is best for you.
For me it was clear, disposable is the way to go since I’m an avid couponer and often manage to pay nothing but the tax on disposable diapers after coupon stacking.
