Re: Line Dried CPFs are Stiff

I line dry to save $... and I know it sounds NUTSO but this really really works - toss them in the dryer for a few minutes BEFORE you line dry them... and they will be softer. I swear. I was tossing them in after but it was a waste b/c I had to have them in the dryer forever & they still weren't that soft. When I started doing it before, they came out fine. Also, it may help (since they dry so fast is AZ) to hang them up double (like two on the same clothespins) so that they dry slower.

GL OBTW it's not your washing that makes them stiff.
