Bamboo - how do you dry yours?

Postby Cyrillia » Sun Oct 11, 2009 2:56 pm

Hey all,

I've had to invest in some new inserts for my WN pockets as DS has turned into a mega-wee'er at the same time I think killed my BBOS inserts through using Fairy! I bought some GK bamboo inserts with GK bamboo boosters, and they arrived on Friday - I'm dying to try them out, but I'm still waiting for them to dry!

I read that they shouldn't be tumble dried or put directly onto a radiator as it makes the piles lie flat, so they're on an airer in our spare room (the radiator is on in there when the heating is on though), and they're STILL damp!

What can I do? They're going to be pretty much a nightmare for me if they take two-plus days to dry! :)

Ahh, thinking about it now, the GK bamboo boosters/inserts are bamboo fleece, not terry type, I think - so the comment re: the pile lying flat shouldn't apply should it?

If I let them dry say for 24h, then stick them in the tumbler to finish them off they should be fine shouldn't they? :D

Do you tumble dry on the low setting?

Tumbling isn't great for bamboo as it cooks the fibres, it is especially bad for BV nappies. If you are going to tumble bamboo I'd do it for as little time as possible and on the lowest heat possible too.
