drying situation
what is your drying situation? do you use the dryer, do you use a rack or a line or something else? I need ideas

I use the dryer when it's very cold, and I have an umbrella rack for drying outside. I MUCH prefer outdoor drying as the sun and the breeze get everything so clean and fresh smelling. But right now it's too cold so I'm mostly using the dryer. The other day I did put everything outside though- It was 35 degrees and they didn't dry at all but the sun was shining and got a bunch of stains out.

Re: drying situation
I use a dryer for my prefolds because they get to stiff on the line. For my flats I use the line because they get to wrinkled in the dryer. The flats I follow up with an iron. When I first cloth diapered my older son I strung lines in our basement and hung to dry in the basement.

Re: drying situation
I use the dryer every time now, but when mine was broken (and it was warm enough) I just hung the diapers all over my back porch and our rickety little homemade clothes line. It wasn't pretty but they dried under the bright sun in a few hours.

I use a drying rack. Inside during the winter, outside in the summer.

Re: drying situation
I don't have a dryer but I do have a clothes line. I use the dryer at the laundromat sometimes. If the diapers won't dry outside I use some drying racks in the house and have a clothes line in the house also. Things dry faster if you pin them to the rack instead of just laying them on.
