I have some questions about drying my diapers.

When I take the diapers out of the wash I have been putting the happy heiny's and little lambs shells outside to dry in the sun. They both dry pretty quickly. I put all the inserts and soakers into the dryer on hot.

I am not sure what to do about my Luke's AIWs or my Snugwee day2nights. I am pretty sure the Luke's have a layer of PUL inside and I thought you weren't supposed to put PUL in the dryer. I am not sure if the snugwees have any PUL - doesn't feel like it. On both of the websites they say drying on medium is OK. But I dry all my other things on hot (or else it takes forever for them to dry).

So should I put the Luke's and Snugwees out in the sun with the other shells or is it okay to put them in the dryer on hot? They just take soooooo long to dry outside.

Could you dry them on Med with a load of other laundry(like towels that dry fast)?

Well, I have had my LDs now for 3 years and dry them with the prefolds. I also toss in my HHs and FBs, because I just don't have time and too much laundry to worry about it. No leaks, no problem. Not that it is the best alternative . . . but never fear . . . if it happens, it won't kill your dipes/covers.

I dry everything in the dryer on medium. I do occasionally find the time or the strong desire to hang them on the line. I've never had any problems with my FB, HH, LD, or anything with PUL. If my thicker diapers are not dry on the first time around, I'll throw the stuff from the washer in with them and let them go again.
