How do you dry your clothies?

I just hang them up. I do not dry them, even though some of the inserts I can. I want to make a cute clothes line in Drakes room so they can be on display while they are drying.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my perfect siggy

Low setting in the dryer for inserts. I line dry my covers, although I am guilty of sticking one of my BG 4.0 covers in the dryer on low when I first bought it. The mail came at 6pm that day, and I wanted DD2 to wear it to bed . No issues, but I don't want to make it a habit!

I throw all mine in the dryer (flats and prefolds) on high heat. All covers are hung to dry.

I plan to hang dry mine then pop in the dryer for a few minutes to soften up.
Thank you Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy!

My covers are banned from the dryer. I want no complications there, lol. I dry my prefolds and inserts on low heat. Though when it is hot and dry out I will most likely sun dry my inserts to help kill off bacteria that commonly grows in hemp and microfiber inserts.

everything goes in the dryer on medium heat normally. covers i will hang to dry sometimes if i remember. Most of our diapers are AIOs so they take forever to dry, plus they are natural fibers which means they are crunchy if line dried. i have line dried them before and putting them in the dryer later didnt even get rid of the crunchiness.

On a lazy/busy day I dry inserts, prefolds, fitteds & wipes in the dryer on normal heat and hang the covers/pockets in the bathroom on a hanging carousel. On an ambitious day it all goes on the retractable line outside.
