How does it work long-term?
I want to but it is so stinking dusty here I would just have to wash everything again.
Here in Australia, it's rare for anyone to have a dryer. We don't have one, and I am SO glad.
I have washed my diapers (to prep them) several times, and line dry them each time. The sun is great for drying diapers as it sanitises, but you don't want to put coloured cotton in direct sunlight for too long, as it will cause them to fade.
Line-drying diapers makes them last longer, as dryers are hard on clothes and diapers alike. Drying in the dryer is bad for PUL, elastic, and velcro, over time.
We aren't supposed to at my apt.'s, but I have this metal clothes rack that I keep in the kitchen... When it is nice out & the apt. manager isn't here, I drag it outside. Otherwise I just hang everything in the kitchen -with windows open, etc. It works wonderfully, but like a PP mentioned, it doesn't make for soft prefolds.
