How do you dry your AIOs?

I have no experience with AIOs, and for about a year I haven't used PUL, so I feel brand new to this. I took the plunge and ordered 6 PUL AIOs and they just came in yesterday. It seems they take as long as a fitted to dry. They have been through one dry cycle and are still wet. I have them hanging in the house to finish.

I am a flats gal, so I dry all the diapers in the dryer on medium for one cycle, then hang the 2-3 fitteds up somewhere to finish.

Has anyone dryer dried their AIOs long term? Does it mess them up significantly faster than line drying? I know PUL was designed to withhold high heat, but Ive heard of it delaminating, so I'm not sure.

I always dry my AIOs on high for 1 1/2 cycles. They are usually completely dry by then, or only need a bit of rack drying in the house. They have held up just fine. I just make sure not to handle them when they are still hot so as not to damage the elastic or pull the PUL.

I used to dry my BGEs for one cycle and then hang them up overnight, but I've gotten lazy and have just been doing two cycles. I've had no trouble with delaminating.

Medium/High heat for one cycle with dryer balls. In my old dryer it did take 2 cycles, but I did notice a big difference in time once I started using the dryer balls.
I always dry my AIO's in dryer too and I have never had one delaminate in 2 years.

I put mine in the dryer, unless it's a nice day and I hang them outside. The pul on my diapers is fine, but I've only been using cloth for 1.5 years.

I throw them in the dryer. Its too moist here to hang dry AIO. We couldn't get them totally dry on the clothes line in the summer!

Dryer. Everything goes into the dryer on high heat. We've got BGE that are 1.5 years old and have been dried this way every other day. They look and work great.
