To all who line dry

How do you line dry things with elastic (i.e pockets, and fitteds) I can dry my covers, but I want to line dry my dipes to try and sun out some stinkies. Any suggestions?

Re: To all who line dry

I do diff things depending on the dipe. I use a clothespin & hang from the tag if there is one... or I hang them on the side (if that makes sense) so that they are open.

Re: To all who line dry

I'm asking because I heard that hanging them can ruin the elastic. The weight of the wet dipe stretches the elastic too much. But I might try hanging them by the sides like you said....that's a good idea!

Hmmm I dunno hopefully that's not true! I've never had trouble though. Try hanging from the areas w/o the elastic if there are any then? But I figure putting them on their side will give it more support too.

I hang clothes like this too & they last. GL

Re: To all who line dry

I guess the pockets won't be that heavy wet would they?! Maybe I'll just see how heavy the fitteds are and go from there. Thanks

Re: To all who line dry

yeah, pockets - not very heavy even when fresh from the washer. i also have a drying rack and haven't ever noticed a problem with draping them over the rails...
