do you line dry in the winter?

Does it work or do the diapers freeze?

I'm finally able to hang my diapers outside and I don't want to stop in the winter!
If it's below freezing, will they dry or is it too cold? I notice my fuzzi bunz take longer to dry when the house is chilly and damp but they dry in less than 10 minutes sometimes out in the sun.

It rains so much here in the winter, spring and fall that my line drying outside of summer is pretty scarce. I love line drying for all the laundry though. Everything smells so much better and I like the crunchy feel of line dried clothes. We use fuzzibunz too, and on a hot sunny day they dry sooo fast!
I hung mine up one day when it was just above 0 and within 1 hour, they were "unstained". I usually hung them up inside after sunning just to make sure they were dry since it's hard to tell when they are ice cold.
I use one of the wooden fold up hanger thingies and just dry them inside. Takes like half a day though.
I can't line dry outside so we just put one up in the basement..Takes almost the whole day to dry though but worth it imo

well I normally line dry my fuzzi bunz indoors, just not the inserts or prefolds. But I'm liking the fresh smell/no stains/blinding white prefold&microfiber thing I've got going

I guess I'll try it, at least on mild days. Although it's really only a few weeks where it's really freezing cold.

Well, I'm in New Jersey, and mine freeze
. But if I hang them out in the morning, they're pretty dry by 3pm (when the sun starts to set). I just fluff them in the dryer for a bit.

A winter tip- WEAR GLOVES. I nearly froze my fingers off putting them up.
