DRYING NAPPIES

Postby Shaunie » Tue Dec 01, 2009 1:55 pm

Hi all, How close to the radiator can you hang pockets to dry? Im warmer months I have them over the back of dining chairs which does the job. I have those racks you hang over the radiator - can I use those or is that too close?

Also, with my bamboo nappies & inserts - can they be put straight on the radiator or an airer or tumble?

Thanks, Siobhan :)

The radiator hanging things are fine to hang things on - you just don't want elastic or pul getting too close as very hot hear can damage them. I wouldn't put bamboo straight onto a radiator as the bamboo can cook a bit :D

With bamboo its best if you can line dry them as much as possible and then if you need to its fine to tumble on low heat aswell :wink:

Thanks for that. I have put the bamboo in the drier today because they may have froze on the line :giggle: & the radiator airer is full waiting to go now I know it's 'safe' :wink:

Hi, not really an answer to your question but i had read in another part of this forum about double spinning to reduce drying time and i have found it helps loads, i would never have thought to do it!

I dry all of DS's nappies over the bannister. They dry really quickly as hot air rises up the stairs. :wink:
