Drying organic flip inserts

I like to air dry my organic flip inserts but they get very hard and stiff. So this last time I tried the dryer and they took FOREVER! I don't want them hard because they are right up against ds and I like them in the dryer but I swear I dried them on 3 or 4 cycles. The first never goes long because it is a sensing timer. So I always check to see whats wet. Then I put them on the time medium heat I think for 3 more times. They were finally dry.
Would it work if I dried them partially in the dryer then hung to dry?

Yep, that's what I do.... I dry them partially and then hang dry, and they stay *mostly* soft.

Re: Drying organic flip inserts

Yes I think that would work. However maybe check your vent and make sure nothing is clogged. They do take longer to dry but not THAT long. One full cycle on high does it for me. Also try throwing a clean, dry towel in there too to help.

I agree with the above on checking the vent.

I dry mine in the dryer for 15 minutes and then hang them to dry. They dry pretty quickly from there and are pretty soft. (I would still love to do an ecover test to see if I can tell the difference.)

Hmmm...mine dry in one dryer cycle. Seems odd that yours are taking so long. Are they new? Mine took longer to dry when they were new.

I would hang them to dry first, then throw then in the dryer to finish which will soften them up too.

Re: Drying organic flip inserts

I will have dh check the vent. This was the longest it has ever taken, normally they don't take that long but still longer than other things. I do no dry diapers, except my BG aio, so all that is in there is inserts and occasionally the bamboo fitted. I know my bamboo inserts and the fitted always take longer to dry so I thought it must be that.
But thanks I will check the vent first

Hang them to dry first and then put them in the dryer for 20 mins to fluff them up. They will come out soft.
