do you let your base plate dry naturally or with a hair dryer? I let it dry naturally. Does it damage the plate to use a hair dryer? Just wanted to see what other people do.

I've done both and haven't found a difference either way.

I let it dry naturally, but my stoma nurse said it's fine to use a hair-dryer.

I let it dry naturally, but only because I don't have the patience to stand still with a dryer.

Yeah, that's the same reason I don't use a dryer.

I use a dryer and haven't found it damaging at all. If anything it might help seal better. I also wrap my towel under and over the bag before blow drying.
