Cloth Diaper Drying Solutions from Ikea

Cloth Diaper Drying Solution
Confession: I don’t always air dry my diapers. They often go in the dryer, especially my inserts. That being said, I do like to hang them to dry some times, and in an apartment with limited space, this can be a challenge. I’ve got my clothes & cloth drying station installed above our bathtub. (We have a separate shower stall.)

We installed this Grundtal laundry rack that folds flat against the wall and I use it for cloth and for our regular clothes. The Pressa octopus hangers are perfect for cloth, but also for hanging ziploc baggies to drip dry over the tub. (Since, of course, I reuse my ziplocs!)

How do you dry your diapers? If you have an outdoor clothesline… I’m very jealous!

    We have an extra shower curtain bar installed in our combo bathtub/shower unit, and use that to hang clothes on hangers to dry. When it’s shower time, the clothes come out & get hung on the bathrobe hook on the back of the bathroom door, & get re-hung on the bar once we’re done.

    We have an IKEA a-frame folding clothing dry rack that we put on our patio if its sunny or jn the tub during the rain/at night and an octopus claw dryer for delicates.

  7. I hang dry all my clothes so hang dry diapers too! I like this little rack system, except I hate going to Ikea so so much. I wonder if I could find something like that from WalMart?

      I haven’t seen the wall-mounted rack at Walmart, but the Octopus hangers they have similar at most dollar stores!

    We’re in a small apartment so the laundry rack could definitely come in handy. I love anything that folds!
