i was wondering about this too. i've got some that are about 5 months old, and i notice that i occasionally get a leak at night. i stuff them with one micro and two hemp inserts. i was wondering if they were wearing out, or maybe i'm just too sleepy and not getting a good fit

FWIW - PUL will wear out a lot faster after repeated dryer use... I line dry my FB and they are usually COMPLETELY dry within a few hours.

I only line dry my fb's. I have gotten 2 fbs on the trader from someone who dryer dried them, and you can most certainly tell the difference. They are hard and scratchy, and I ended up putting them in my vehicle for emergency diaper use. I HATE them.
so, if you want them to last a little longer, and remain nice and soft, just dry them the first or second time, and line them the other times.....this is my experience. Someone may have a different thing happen to them.

I read that you should line dry them but occasionally put PUL in the dryer to "reseal". Of course, i have no idea where i read that b/c all i seem to do these days is read about diapers on a million different sites!!!

I dried them the 2 times recommended and now I line dry. I have a line set up by my drier, so I wash my inserts and washcloths and fitteds together, and dry them in the drier, then I wash all FB's and PUL covers in the wash and hang to dry. They usually are done around the time the inserts are done. Fleece dries quick
