What detergent do you recommend for Bamboo Sheets?
A: We recommend a mild liquid detergent like Ecos, Mrs. Myers, Woolite, Seventh Generation, ECover, Aspen Clean, or Kirkland Ultra Clean.

We’ve noticed that harsher detergents can break down the fibers faster, shortening the lifespan of the linens and/or creating tearing at the seams. Its not recommended to use any detergents that say 'Tough on Stains' as they'll be too harsh on fine fabrics.
