How to Wash Bamboo Sheets
Velvety sheets make bedtime a breeze, and there are a lot of good reasons to buy bamboo sheets for your bedroom. From the hypoallergenic fabric and cleanliness to the buttery soft texture, organic bamboo sheets offer the functional comfort you deserve. Buying bamboo sheets is one thing, but what about maintaining the soft, sustainable material? Here’s everything you should know about washing and caring for your bamboo sheet set, by the luxey bedding lovers here at Bamboo Haus.
Wash Before Use
Use Cold Water
Keep Bamboo Sheets Separate
Other key care tips include washing organic bamboo sheets separately to avoid contact with rough fabric, buckles, or zippers. Also, try not to use any harsh detergents or bleach, as these chemicals may damage natural fibres and lead to discoloured sheets. If you choose to iron the sheets, opt for the lightest setting as high heat isn’t good for bamboo sheets. Try not to use steam if you don’t have to.
Safe DIY & Dry
Lastly, air drying is ideal for your bamboo sheet set, but if weather conditions don’t allow it, then opt for a delicate, low tumble dry. Keep this drying time to a minimum and pull the sheets out quickly, so wrinkles don’t set in. If you want a DIY detergent for the bamboo sheet set, try baking soda rather than vinegar, which is acidic and likely to damage the natural bamboo fabric.
