Washing baby clothes tonight-and now they are still wet after drying!!

I NEVER tumble dry low as what is always recommended...but since it was baby stuff and I'm new at this, I figured I would follow the instructions for once in my life...dried on low for 40min..went to get clothes...AND HALF THE THINGS ARE STILL A LITTLE DAMP!Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon ....so I put it in for another 1/2 hour...which means a longer time till I get to bed..and I'm so tiredChat Icon ...so should I wash on low for a longer time with baby clothes, or should I just go back to my old ways and dry everything on RAGING HIGH?? K...vent over...Chat Icon

Well, I agree with Dina to just use the regular setting.

But 40 mins isn't that long in the dryer, big loads in my machine can take 1 hour +!

I have never put her clothes in on low....

Always do it on the norm setting. All clothes go into the dryer for 40 minutes on perm press.

I never put my baby clothes in the drier I think that they shrink that way even when you do follow the directions. We hang dry or use a drying rack for all of DD's clothes. Actually it is easier that way too.

I dry everything on low (except towels) and set the dryer for 60-70 minutes and everything is dry. Since I started using the low nothing has shrunk.

i set everything on low heat and just let it dry for longer (i have a good dryer but it can still take 45 minutes for everything to be totally dry).
