    I've tumbled liners when looking after some young babies in years gone past. They were fine. Just used a lower heat setting. The parents obviously were fine with this as it was the Mum herself told me to tumble them.

    You could also line dry them as they are not too thick and would dry fairly quickly in decent weather I would think.

    What are the liners made of?

    Fleece ones feel almost dry when they come out of the wash anyway.

    However, if I'm doing a nappyload it all goes in together as I can't be bothered to sort through it until it's all dry :lol:

    Yes, you can tumble them :D

    If they are cotton they will shrink on a high heat though, so be careful!

    What nappy system have you got?

    I used these at first :D

    I shrank mine a bit but it didn't matter as they still fit the tiniest of bums and we moved over to fitteds after a few months. I have to tumble everything!

    One bit of advice, if they leak look at your wraps. we had the recommended Bummis/whisper wraps but they wicked badly and we had to change to Motherease. Other people I know got on great with the BUmmis though, and they're very cheap!
