Anyone tumbling at the mo?

Postby charlibunny » Wed Jan 06, 2010 5:15 pm

I have to admit last night i gave in and tumbled a load of nappies, fully :oops: I felt guilty tho!! I normlly air for 24-36 hours then tumble to finish off unless its summer i line dry :)
Will it wreck my nappies tumbling on low? My dryer is buggered and it took like 120 +120 (these are supposed to be minutes but my dryer makes the time go faster :hohoho: )
What are you all doing?
I have no room for the clothes horse as my buggy is indoors....

Depends on whether I can be bothered to hang them up on the clothes horse :oops: or I'm in desperate need and have left it too long between washes. Then I will completely tumble dry them, otherwise the go on a clothes horse in our room for 2 days. I did have to move the clothes horse a bit to ensure I could get my :pregnant: belly past it :oops: :giggle:

I hope they're not directly on radiators - the heat can damage them.

We don't have a tumble drier. All our washing (including nappies) is on one of these in our bedroom.

is that a heated rail louise? surely thats the same sort of thing as a radiator though? :-? or is it on a low setting?

I put mine either directly on the radiator or on the radiator hanger things. dont tumble coz we use pockets now. fitteds i was very dubious about tumbling coz our HOs got damaged by low heat in the tumble dryer :(

Yes it is and no it's not the same as a radiator as it doesn't get anywhere near as hot. I don't leave it on all the time anyway, usually just overnight. It helps keep the bedroom warm then too. :giggle:
