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
When you first get your bamboo sheet set, you may think the sheets are bigger than cotton or polyester sheets in the same size. This is normal sizing, as organic bamboo sheets are made larger on purpose because bamboo shrinks naturally. For the ideal fit with a silken feel, wash your new bamboo sheets before use.
Use Cold Water
There are a few perks to washing organic bamboo sheets with cold water, including improved energy efficiency and faster wash cycles. Cold water in a gentle cycle also helps bamboo sheets retain their shape, without shrinking as much as they would in hot water. You can save on utilities and ensure the longest lifespan for your velvety bamboo sheet set with cold water and air-dry settings.
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.
