I just got a handful of Sumbuns AIO's. They're super cute, but seem like they'll take forever to dry in the dryer. Do you recommend a combination of dryer and line-drying? Is it ok to put AIO's in the dryer at all? I don't do this w/ covers or pockets- just hang dry. These AIO's seem to be a different story, though- they really hold onto that moisture. I appreciate your advice!

I usually dry in the dryer. It does take forever. If it is nice out I will dry for a while outside and then put them in the dryer to finish and soften them up some.

I purchase/make/use only "quick dry" AIOs that have the snap in or sewn in soaker. This keeps the soaker on the outside and less layers in the body of the diaper to try to dry through. I can get my AIOs dry in 1 cycle now since I switched to QD. Until I put my Very Babys with the birdseye inners in there and they take 1.5 cycles.

I dry them in the drier with my pockets but as soon as my pockets are done I line them on top of the the drier to air dry the rest of the way.

What are the brands for the "quick dry" aio's?<br><br>
I have a bumgenius AIO and i'm always afraid its not dry enough, since I cant see the insides like I can with the pockets I have.

I use some swaddlebees AIOs which I like, but definitely take forever to dry. They have a pocket in them, though, so you can kind of feel the inner layers by the PUL to see if they're dry or not. I usually dry them with my pockets and then hang dry them the rest of the way.

Bum-ware AIOs come in a quick dry option. (But I have no experience with them.)

I love my Blue Penguins. <a href="http://www.bluepenguin.biz/aio.html" target="_blank">http://www.bluepenguin.biz/aio.html</a><br><br>
They are on clearance at Baby Cotton Bottoms. I would buy them out if I had the money!

Great input! I tried drying in the dryer, plus line drying all night. This seemed to work well (laundry is in the basement with a dehumidifier running in the room.) They were quite dry this morning. I guess AIO's can take the beating of going through the dryer, yes? Maybe it's because they contain more material. Some of the Sumbuns I have are quilted, and they are not as light as a Bumkins-type diaper. They are really, really absorbent though- and trim considering. I'm a fan already. I guess that this is why I've ended up with a huge, varied stash-each type or diaper has its pluses and drawbacks.

Line drying almost exclusively, as with all my laundry.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hang.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hang"> It just seems ridiculous to have an appliance that creates hot air in Texas. Hot air is free and plentiful where I live.

Yeah, I'm definitely leaning toward going back to pockets b/c they dry SO much faster!

I have MagicAlls and I usually dry them in the dryer, and then leave them on a drying rack next to the dryer overnight.<br><br>
They ~do~ take forever though.

We use the Kushies AIO's and never put them in a dryer. I wash them every other day and have enough that while the one batch dries I use the other half.
