How to Dry Baby Clothes in Winter?

When it’s freezing outside and your baby’s favorite outfits start to smell a little icky, you’re probably wondering how you’ll get them clean again. Fortunately, there are a number of ways you can dry baby clothes in the winter without spending your precious time and energy on a wash cycle. With the right set of tools and a bit of know-how, you’ll be able to get your baby’s favorite outfits back to smelling fresh again in no time. Let’s take a look at how you can dry baby clothes in the winter without spending your precious time and energy on a wash cycle.

USE A DRYER

If you have a dryer available to you, it is the best way to dry your baby clothes when it’s freezing outside. For example, if you have a front-loading dryer, all you need to do is load them in there and let the machine do its thing. If you don’t have a dryer available, using a hair dryer can be an effective solution as well. Although it may take longer for your baby clothes to dry, this is still one of the most time-efficient ways to clean your little ones dirty clothes.

LAY OUT THE BABY CLOTHES

When you dry clothes in the winter, it’s important to lay them out so they will dry evenly. First, lay a towel or blanket on the floor and then place your baby clothes on top of the towel. Second, make sure you have a fan nearby so that the heat from it blows over your baby clothes and helps them dry faster. The cold air will also help them dry faster. Last, make sure there is nothing blocking the path of the air by moving any furniture away from the wall where you’ll be hanging your clothes out to dry.

HANG THE BABY CLOTHES

When it’s cold outside, you can hang the clothes on a line or in a dryer. The clothes will dry in no time flat and look as good as new! This is a great option if you don’t have access to a backyard line or dryer.

WEAR YOUR BABY IN A WRAPPED ONESIE

This one is a no-brainer. In fact, this was the first solution to come to mind for some when I asked them how they dry their baby clothes in winter. It’s a tried and true method of drying baby clothes, but it’s not the only option out there. When you try on your baby in a onesie or in a snowsuit, you can lay the outfit flat on your dresser or hang it over the shower curtain rod. This will help make sure that all of your little one’s wet mess doesn’t drip all over your closet or bathroom floor. Another thing you can do with your baby’s outfits is fold up any plastic bags that you normally use to pack up dirty laundry and put them inside the outfit instead of tossing them into the hamper. This will help keep your clothes from getting stale while they dry and will also help keep any other items around them from getting damp with moisture. Finally, if you need to speed up the drying process, throw another layer of clothing on top of your baby before putting it back on him or her. This will help trap more heat than if it were just hanging out flat on your dresser or shower curtain rod for hours at a time.

TRY A DRYING RACK

If your baby clothes have a lot of water stains, you should try a drying rack instead of the dryer. You can find these racks at your local hardware or home improvement store and they’re quite affordable. These drying racks are designed to be used outdoors and make it easy for you to dry a variety of fabrics, including those with lots of water spots. You might also want to consider purchasing an inexpensive blow-dryer. You can use this device to help get rid of any remaining water on your clothing so that it’s easier for the dryer to take care of them in the next step.

MAKE AN EASY FABRIC CLUTCH

Clothes made from natural fibers are generally hard to clean. If your baby’s favorite outfits start to smell a little icky, it’s time to make a fabric clutch. You can use any type of fabric you want for this project. Cotton is the most common option because it absorbs moisture quickly and dries quickly when wet.

To make this project, you’ll need the following materials:

-Fabric of your choice

-Scissors

-Stapler

-Hand sewing needle

-Thread that matches your fabric

-Two black buttons First, cut a piece of fabric slightly larger than the size of your hand. Fold over one side and stitch together close to the edge with a hand sewing needle and thread matched to your fabric. Stitch across the other side and then about an inch down from one corner, leaving enough space for a buttonhole. Sew on buttons at either end of the borders created by these stitches and then finish off with another row of stitches around the border before trimming off excess fabric with scissors (be careful not to snip into the stitching). Repeat this pattern until all four sides have been completed. Your finished clutch will be 1/2″ thick all around and should be big enough to hold folded up clothes that can still fit in it with room to spare (about 5 square yards).

DON’T HAVE A DRYER?

If you don’t have a dryer, the best option is to lay your clothes on a wire rack or inside a flat-bottomed basket. Use an oven or even a hair dryer to speed things up. The heat and wind from these appliances will help speed up the drying process. If you don’t have access to an oven or hair dryer, use a regular clothesline. Line your clothesline with either colored or white sheets that are made of 100 percent cotton. This will help the clothing to get brighter and keep them from fading when they’re wet. You can also hang your baby’s outfits on chairs, hooks, or even towel racks near an open window in order to air them out as well as speed up their drying process.
