Line drying diapers question

I'm new to cloth diapering so forgive me if this is a dumb question- is there a correct way to hang a diaper using clothes pins? For example is it better to hang a pocket diaper with the pocket on top or towards the ground? I had read somewhere that hanging wet diapers can ruin the elastic? Sometimes simple things seem so confusing. Thank you for your help

Re: Line drying diapers question

When line drying I just pin whatever part of the diaper I grab first.

Re: Line drying diapers question

Our line is on the south side of the house so I hang them with the Insides facing away from me so they are exposed to more direct sunlight. I also always hang them with the tabs up. One pin on each tab.

Idk, that it really matters, I'm just very OCD and like to see everything hanging the same way.

Great, thanks
I figured it was as simple as just clipping up whatever I grabbed first. Thanks for reassuring me
Mine are line drying with the insides facing the sun
Line dried diapers are awesome, thank you

I hang with the pocket opening facing downward so that the water drips out, if that makes sense? Don't know if it helps it dry any faster though. I also pin on the velcro to keep it from leaving weird marks on the fabric.

I use a rack from ikea so no clothes pins here at all. I hang whichever way I happen to pick up the dipes! I do throw them in the dryer for 10 min after they are dry to soften them though
