Re: Am I doing it wrong?

I hang mine outside to dry. With the heat we've had, it's like putting them in the dryer!

I've dried everyway possible and they all turn out the same. I never see a difference.

Re: Am I doing it wrong?

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.

I always put them in the dryer on hot... But now after reading this post, maybe I'd go with medium and only every once in a while w/hot?

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.
