How long do you dry your diapers?

I wash every other days for two kiddos. They are older now so I would say we go through 12-16 diapers/day. So maybe I am washing 24-36 diapers. I have to dry them on high for a couple hours. Doesn't this seem like a long time? I can do medium but then it takes forever. I don't know if it is my dryer or what.
How long does it take you and on what setting?

Re: How long do you dry your diapers?

i have mainly PFs, im not sure how many i dry at once, but he's almost 9months and it takes me 1.5hrs to dry (each dry cycle is 70min)....now if i had more fitteds in there it would take a lot longer!

Ok, maybe that is normal then. I have fitteds and maybe 4 pockets and inserts.

Re: How long do you dry your diapers?

Weird...my CPFs only take 60-70 minutes to dry, and that's BONE dry, on Perma Press setting (so, not super-hot drying).

I also wash e/o day but have a NB. I go through about 12-15 dipes a day with her. I dry for one cycle (60 minutes I guess), remove anything that is dry and dry the KL0's for an additional 20 minutes as tehy are never dry with one cycle.

Most of my AIO's take 1.5-2 cycles. I think that is pretty normal. I do have a couple that have extra layering that take a little longer.

I have mostly pockets, one fitted, and a bunch of hemp inserts. I dry on "regular" for 75 minutes and everything comes out dry (except the fitted which takes a few more hours of airdrying.)

Re: How long do you dry your diapers?

i line dry too bcuz i cant be drying all the time in a dryer since we live in a small apartment and dont want to spend too much money on drying. i do dryer drying once a week and i usually put 8-10 diapers in about one dryer with a dry towel. the dry towel really helps to take more moisture. it only takes me 30-45 to dry PFs and fitteds!
