How do you dry your Covers & Pockets?

Just wondering how many people dry them in the dryer routinely v. air drying. I figured in general that Covers especially should be line dried (less sure about pockets), but I've also heard about the heat of the dryer resealing PUL. Any insight into the matter would be much appreciated.

Re: How do you dry your Covers & Pockets?

I try to remember to always line dry my covers. My pockets go in the dryer 70% of the time in summer. If it isn't too humid I hand them outside. From October-may I lay them on top of the radiators.

Always hang them, they dry fast anyways.

I throw everything into the dryer together and dry on high. Always have.

I have a line in the laundry room- like this one. When I throw the prefolds, inserts and MEOS in the dryer and hang the covers on that line above the washer. By the time everything in the dryer is totally dry (an hour?) the covers and pocket dipes are dry (usually). I'd hang them outside but its too hot to go outside here right now. LOL

I dry them in the dryer (pocket shells and inserts), I've done it this way for 3 years with no issues.

I usually dry all the diaper laundry in the dryer on medium heat.

I have a shelf with a bar below it in my laundry room. I hang all of my covers, pockets, and my aio diapers on pant hangers on that bar.

I line dry anything with PUL and just throw them in the dryer every few weeks to reseal it. I do have some AI2 shells that I dry more often with with my regular laundry with a dryer sheet because it helps the inner fleece repel more.

I line dry everything except when I strip (I toss the inserts in the dryer).
