There is no doubt in my mind that when the dryer breaks it is ALWAYS a bad situation, but none so awful as when you’re a cloth diapering parent with a wet load of freshly cleaned diapers in the washer and the sun has already set for the day. Trust me, this is not the time you want to find out your dryer is broken. If, like me, you procrastinate about when you do cloth diaper laundry, there is a giant load of laundry in that washer and your clean stash has almost been wiped out. I call this a dire situation. But, as every cloth diapering parent knows, “shit happens.”

So, I loaded those clean damp diapers in the laundry basket and brought them inside. I was  determined to hang them all and any surface that might work as a drying rack was to be used!
The obvious place was the bathroom, but I quickly learned that the shower rod, while perfectly convenient, will only hold so many prefolds.

And for that reason (and many more) I LOVE my resourceful husband. He turned our den/Logan’s room into the ultimate drying rack. Seriously, we had cloth diapers hanging everywhere including off the fan and the ceiling.

Most of our diapers dried overnight. The thicker nighttime ones took two days to dry completely. Honestly, I could’ve taken them out to finish drying in the sun, but without a dryer to fluff them afterward, they would’ve been hard and scratchy.

Have you had an inconvenient dryer situation?
Do any of y’all not have dryers at all? If so, how do you like to dry your clothes?
