Cloth 101: Outdoor Drying

Prepping Cloth Diapers

Screen Shot 2013-07-01 at 9.56.25 AMAh, summer. What’s not to love about the season? School is out, vacations are planned, and the weather is nice, which can only mean one thing: air drying cloth diapers.

Line drying your cloth diapers is a great way to save money, and each month, it can put more than $10 back in your pocket. But not only that, drying your diapers in the sun can also remove stains and sanitize your stash.

To dry your cloth diapers outside, you don’t need a traditional clothesline and clothespins. You can use a folding drying rack or set your diapers over a deck rail (we do not recommend this if there are high winds in your area). You can even just lay your diapers across an outdoor chair or table if you can’t find a place to hang a clothesline or don’t have enough space for a drying rack. 

When air drying your cloth diapers, there are a few things you will want to keep in mind:  

  • Don’t leave your cloth diapers outside for too long. High temperatures can be just as harmful to your cloth diapers as dryer heat.  
  • We only recommend keeping your diapers outside until they are dry. There is no need to keep your diapers out any longer. 
  • Check your diapers frequently because you never know when a bird may want to try out your baby’s bumGenius Freetime.
