I've just got DH to demolish a shed which means we can finally put a washing line up. So I shall look forwards to line-drying. But I am worried about nappies going hard when they're line dried. Is it just a case of popping them in the dryer for 5 minutes afterwards to soften them up again? Or do you do something at the washing stage to prevent that from happening? Or does it not affect cloth nappies too badly? Thanks.

I make sure the 'nice' side of the nappies are facing out to the road (our line is on the little village street), I hang them all in a row and on the row closest to the road then when I get back to the house I always turn around and have a look before I go back inside - awwwww!!!!! ( :oops: :oops: :hohoho: :hohoho: :oops: :oops: )

I l0ve it t00. I feel really happy t0 see them there. The nappy wash g0es 0n 0vernight s0 they can be 0ut all day!!!

They d0 g0 hard (the natural fibe 0nes) but the fact they are 0n the line makes me n0t mind. We d0 have s0ft water here th0ugh.

I have been w0ndering what the neighb0urs think :-)
