I am really appreciating all of the ideas and trying to KISS.
My main question for the group: Do you dry your diapers in the dryer or are you line drying?
I have been afraid of drying my diapers in case of setting my problems but I am wondering if the extra heat from a dryer would kill any lingering bacteria?
If I do choose to try tumble drying diapers, can they still be effectively stripped?
High heat in the dryer will help to kill bacteria...so good for diapers.
If you have PUL covers....like Fuzzy bunz types, you dont need to put those in the hight heat, but anything that is mostly cloth...ie mostly absorbent, those will benefit from the high heat.
