Noticed this too!
We just leave ours on an airer by the window in the room that gets the most sun & heat during the day.

We use cotton TB & LL for nursery - these take 24-36hrs to dry!
But use a variety of posh pockets at home - so those dry quicker!

My vote is for the sun to come back!
Do you have an airing cupboard - that might speed things up?
An extra high speed spin can also help.

still sunny here so having no problems.
in winter we used a dehumidifier near the airer and left it running on low overnight - even the thick bamboo ones were dry in the morning.

The suns out here too! I must admit I put them out whatever the weather and in the winter I use the tumble dryer at night to dry them off! At other times I just leave them out till they dry :hohoho:

I just leave mine out, if it's cloudy like it is at the moment i have to get them out anyway as with this humidity everything goes mouldy really quick so out they go, rain and all, it makes them softer so I dont complain lol plus everything is stain free!
