I’ve heard SO many different things about how to dry cloth diaper inserts and covers. I’m using BumGenius 4.0 (pockets with snaps) and FuzziBunz One Size (pockets with snaps). I washed them according to the directions and seeing that we dont have a line to line dry them I threw them in the dryer on airfluff. 2 cycles on air fluff later they STILL aren’t dry. I’ve read that throwing them in the dryer on regular settings is fine and I’ve also heard contradicting statements that the heat will make them less absorbant. I mentally can’t forsee myself putting up with it taking an entire day to dry my diapers. Help?

I don’t have any experience with cloth diapers but you can get a clothes drying rack pretty cheap at walmart/target if you want to try drying them on that. I would guess that maybe the heat from the normal dryer setting may cause some of the chemicals that help with absorbancy to break down, but no idea on how much that would be.

Dry them on low in the dryer and you’ll be fine. You don’t want any higher heat than that or it can effect the PUL on pocket diapers.
ETA: You can dry inserts and fitted diapers on medium usually without issue because they don’t have PUL. If you are drying covers and pocket diapers though, you probably should be sticking with low heat. Also, get some dryer balls. Totally helps speed drying time.

Thanks all for your responses. I turned the dryer up to the low/delicate setting and they were dry within the cycle… finally!
