How do I wash bamboo sheets? Any recommended laundry products?
A: Rayon from Bamboo is best cared for by washing in cold or warm water with an eco-friendly liquid detergent, and drying on low to medium heat. The recommended laundry products we prefer for bamboo linens are Ecos, Seventh Generation, Meyer’s Clean Day, and Aspen Clean.
Proper washing will extend their life; you can expect to get 5-6 years from your linens with proper laundering. Using hot water and high heat can cause any linens to pill, which are the uncomfortable bumps you’ll see on some sweaters. Also, bamboo has natural bacteria-resistance so if you’re used to using bleach to kill any bacteria, there’s no need to do so with bamboo. A great benefit for your health and the environment!

Do oil stains come out of bamboo sheets?
A: Oil or lotion stains can be removed, try any of the following, or view our video:
- Prewash the sheets with ¼ cup Dawn dish washing liquid and then launder as usual, as Dawn is a natural degreaser.
- Spray Oxy Clean or a chlorine-free stain remover directly onto the stain and then launder as usual.
- a mixture of 1-part white vinegar to 4-parts water, sprayed or poured onto the stain; this should remove the stains during laundering.
