Am I doing it wrong?

Okay I thought you weren't supposed to dry pockets in the dryer? And if you are what heat level. I dry all my inserts, PF, and fitteds on high.

Re: Am I doing it wrong?

There are differing opinions on this... personally I dry everything together (including my pockets) on low. I do sometimes hang my pockets to dry.

Re: Am I doing it wrong?

I have always dried everything on hot! Anything pul should be dried on hot at least once every couple weeks to seal the pul!

I dry the pockets (pul) on med. Sometimes I just put them outside though.

Re: Am I doing it wrong?

My dryer does not have any choices in settings so I guess I can assume it is hot? I know that for anything pul I generally hang to dry but once every week or two I put them in the dryer to keep everything sealed.

I usually hang mine to dry, but occassionally (once every couple of months, or whenever I think about it) I will toss them in the dryer on hot for 15 minutes to seal the PUL.

I've heard that the high drying will eventually break down the PUL, but who knows if that's true or how long 'eventually' is?

My inserts take a lot longer to dry than my pockets, so I put my inserts in for 45 minutes on hot and hang the pockets, then throw the pockets in with the inserts for an additional 15 minutes on low. Every now and then I dry them all on hot to reseal.
