All pocket inserts are fine to tumble
Pockets I wouldn't as they'll dry in about 4-6hrs maximum anyway

BBBH I always tumble as they take forever if you don't
Bamboozles are ok to do occasionally butt it can 'cook' the bamboo a little
Itti inserts yes but I wouldn't do the outers

Oh and make sure you tumble on low or cool...

Why not? i have just ordered my first OBV nappy and dont want to ruin it. :D thanks

I tumble all mine, mainly WNNN, UDs BBs and WNs, halfway through i take out the wraps and the pockets then at the end i will hang the nappies on the radiator if any are a little damp (usually the bamboo ones)

When i get my own place i will be getting a rotary airer for the garden :)

If you tumble them it seems to kinda felt them - they're still perfectly functional but the material just isn't as nice after - at least that's my experience anyway :)
