How to care bamboo bedding?

While our wash labels provide the basics of how to wash your new bamboo sheets, additional matienance is needed to preserve your sheets. If you follow our refined cleaning routine, our sheets will be on your bed for several years to come.

Washing

In the summer, we recommend you wash your bed linens every 7-10 days. In winter, you can wash them every two weeks.

 

Things to remember:

 

First, always wash your bamboo bedding in cold water, at 30C max, and on gentle.

It is important to wash them separately from other clothing items; sharp items like zippers and hooks can cause pilling and abrasion.

 

Additionally, unless you like super linty sheets – avoid washing them with towels or blankets.

 

Use a mild, liquid, biodegradable detergent. Or, if you prefer powder, make sure it's dissolved before adding your bamboo sheets to the wash.

 

We do not recommend using bleach. Bleach is typically toxic, and can ruin the texture and color of sheets.

 

If you want to go the extra mile, eco friendly laundry pre-soaks and strain removers can really help to brighten your bamboo bedding.

 

Fabric softener is not necessary with bamboo sheets – they are created to be incredibly soft, and will stay that way after washing.

 

Drying

If possible, line dry your bamboo bedding to preserve fibers, colors and elasticity. If you have to use a dryer, choose a low heat and a low tumble cycle. As soon as the dryer finishes, avoid wrinkles by immediately taking them out.
