I am trying to decide what kind of VB AIO's to get; quick dry or internal soaker. I was under the assumption that drying your AIO's in the dryer will reduce the life of the PUL and reduce wicking. I have a few used quick dry AIO's that tend to wick pretty quickly. I do not know how the previous owner cared for them, but I have been letting the shells air dry.<br><br><br><br>
So how do you dry your AIOs? If you have used the dryer, how are they holding up?<br><br><br>
Which do you prefer, QD or internal soaker?

Personally, I prefer quick dry. I hang the shells to dry, but if I'm in a hurry, I just toss them in the dryer and stop it to make sure they aren't dry.<br><br>
If yours wick, I spray mine with waterproof spray. It's really bad to inhale the fumes of the spray, so if you want to do this, I would do it outdoors and cover your mouth and nose with a hanky. But.... once it dries, it's safe. I wash it at least 24 hours after spraying, before use.<br><br>

I put everything but wool in the dryer. I'm just too lazy to remove and hang stuff up. I have VB AIOs of both kinds, an internal soaker and a snap-in soaker. I dry both of them in the dryer first on a low heat setting (after that cycle I remove the AIO shells (except VB one which takes longer to dry even without the internal soaker) and pockets and then I run another dryer cycle with the next load of laundry - usually a regular heat cycle. So far I haven't had any problems with the AIOs but I have only had them for about 6 weeks. They seem to be made really well and I never have any problem with my Fuzzi Bunz drying them this way.

We prefer quick drying AIO's and have a Qd version of Very babies. We too machine dry all our diapers. Have never had many problems with wicking. If it is a concern for you, I would definatly go with the Qd version and hang dry the shells. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">
