Eco-conscious: -167 Watts and No Iron Wrinkle Solution Answered
First, sorry for the blurry pictures - I've changed some sort of setting on my camera and now it's very difficult to get a good image without a tripod.
I like canida's segments and thought I'd throw in some of my little bits. Not as significant, but in terms of consumption, every little bit helps ;)
First, do you really need 180 watts of light in the bathroom? Personally, most of the time I'm either in the shower or taking care of nature's call as opposed to actually using the mirror.
Estimating 2 hours/day usage. We save a little more than 10KwH monthly. So about $1 a month (this bulb pays for itself in 2.5 months).
Second. I don't like my dryer. Some of my clothing is air dried or only partially dried by machine. Wrinkles are a problem for me. So my anti-iron solution is a hook in the bathroom. After a few showers (or one way too hot shower), the moist air will release most of the wrinkles.
If you really need every wrinkle out - then fine, go ahead and fire up the iron. An alternative to an iron is a steamer. I have the kind that you add a little salt to the water and uses much less power than a conventional iron (this statement was verified empirically).
Perhaps there should be a group :) "Semi-Off Grid" :P
