Detaching BGE soaker pad = faster dry time?
 
I got a few BGE's yesterday, and am horrified at how long they take to dry! Three dryer cycles and they are still damp :(

I have heard of people detaching the soaker pad on one side, does that make them dry faster? If so, how do I do that?

Yes! I did it to all of mine and they dry in 1 cycle!
I just used a seam ripper and was careful not to catch the fabric. I detached it from the front and also detached the 2 soakers from each other.

If you haven't already, try flipping them inside out when you move them from the washer to the dryer and put 1 or 2 clean, dry bath towels in the dryer.

We have 24 and I detached them all. They wash cleaner, dry faster and fit so much better. They are all we use and I love them :)

Did it to mine and love the fit! The soaker actually stays flat instead of having an awkward bump at dd's back. And yes.... Drying time is faster. Unfortunately I will be listing mine fs because I just don't like snaps!

Can someone show me a picture of theirs detached?

And I agree with the others - much better fit!

I dont care for BGE but LOVE then w/ a detached soaker and then I also seperate the two soakers also. Fast dry time and better fit!

So basically you have it work kind of like a BG Freetime?
