    Default Stupidest MCN question ever...

    I've pre- washed them, now how do I hang them on the line? If they're hanging down does the elastic stretch? I've draped them over the line and put a peg in the middle.
    Am I over thinking this?

    i have no idea how you're 'meant' to do it, but i hang them with the pretty side inside, and folded in half with a peg in the middle

    But if the elastic goes (which i don't think it should...not that easily), you can get the elastic fixed for about $5 per nappy, apparently - i haven't had to do it yet.

    I used to lay mine flat across the bars of a clotheshorse.

    I hang mine half over the line so that the elastic is not stretched by the weight of the wet nappy. Make sure the inside is facing upwards so the sun can bleach out any stains

    I hang mine sideways on the line so no leg elastic is being stretched, and there's not enough weight to stretch the back/waist elastic.

    If there is a sewn in soaker (tongue style AIO or sewn in both ends like the BumGenius Elemental or Freetime) then I peg on the soaker part aswell so that it's not putting any extra strain on the elastic.

    I always use a clotheshorse for nappies - easy to move into the sun and out of the rain

    Nappies are draped over with inners facing up to sunlight, never really needed pegs on the clothes horse
