do you put your fitteds in the dryer?

Ok so DH knows the "don't put it in the dryer unless you ask" rule goes for all of DS cloths, all his diapers and all of my cloths. But it occured to me the other day, im not sure if fitteds can go in the dryer or not. I am assuming yes . . . unless its bad for the snaps?

fitteds are fine in the dryer. depending on the thickness it could take awhile.

of course if you're worried about the snaps then you hang them up but they will be crunchy when they are dry and you may still want to run them in the dryer for fluff up

It is usually fine to put fitteds in the dryer. It does wear the elastic a little faster and make sure you let them cool down before you stretch them. I usually line dry until they are just a little damp then throw them in the dryer for 15 minutes on Medium Heat.

I've dried mine w/snaps w/o any problems... but FYI I found out that if you want to hang dry, you can put them in the dryer FIRST for maybe like 15 mins & that will actually keep them from getting all crunchy after being on the line. Doesn't even have to be a hot dryer - think it's just the activity that makes it work. Now I do this whenever I hang.

I'm lazy and usually ended up machine drying mine. During the summer I would try to line dry them most of the time, but definitely recommend the 10-15 min of dryer time to soften them up.

I'm lazy and toss everything in the dryer. I do have a few fitteds that are slow drying with internal soakers that I have to hang to finish drying even after 2 complete cycles. I often wonder why I bother keeping those dipes in the rotation. I like quick drying!

Ditto, word for word.

yup i dry mine in the dryer w/o a problem...keeps em much softer. i also don't have a line though, and there's a serious fire ant problem out here so i'm afraid to put em outside to dry anyhow.

All of DS' diapers go in the dryer. As long as they take to dry in the dryer, I can't imagine trying to line dry some of them!
