If You’ve Wondered How to Get a Stain Out of Bamboo Bed Sheets, read on and watch the video below.
Many of our BedVoyage customers have asked for advice on the best processes to get a stain out of their bamboo bed sheets, so we’re sharing what we’ve learned from testing different spot removers.
If you have a stubborn stain on your sheet, spray chlorine-free spot remover or a mixture of 1 tablespoon of vinegar mixed with 4 tablespoons of water directly on it, then launder as usual.
If you have an oil stain from natural body oils, or body lotions, you can treat the spots with Dawn dish washing liquid. You can pre-wash your sheets in the washing machine with ¼ cup of Dawn, then launder as usual. Or you can wet the stain well with water then rub a teaspoon of Dawn directly onto it, rub in gently and toss in the washer. Dawn is a natural degreaser and works wonders on the stains!
If you have a very stubborn stain, you can soak it for 30 minutes to 2 hours or more, in stain-remover solutions of your choosing.
For blood stains, we have our weirdest tip and it works! The person who bled must put their saliva on the blood spots! Reason: the enzymes in your own saliva will break down the blood. Try to do this as soon as possible, and before it completely dries. Then you rinse the linen under cold water and launder immediately. This truly is an amazing hack, and taught to me by a woman in the stage play production team. She sewed the clothes sometimes directly onto the actor, and if she accidentally poked them, this is what they did. Interesting, right?!
Shy about spitting? Then you can try hydrogen peroxide, it works at getting red wine out of carpets, so it works here too. If it’s not a huge amount of blood, you can pour a capful of hydrogen peroxide right onto the blood stain, then rinse in cold water and launder immediately.
