Should I Wash My Bamboo Sheets in Hot or Cold Water?

We recommend that bamboo sheets be washed in cold water. Hot water may cause your bamboo sheets to shrink, so it’s best to avoid hot water at all causes. Just remember, cold water is best for your bamboo bed sheets and you’ll be fine. Also, it won’t cost you as much in energy because you don’t need to heat up water for your washes.

Which Detergent Should I Use When Washing My Bamboo Sheets?

It is really important for you to avoid laundry products with bleach, optical brighteners and fabric softeners. These linen cleaning products will start to break down the composition of the linens which will hurt your sheets in the long run,

How Should I Dry My Bamboo Sheets?

Mother nature is great when it comes to drying your new sheets. Just pop them on a clothes line on a sunny warm day. Put them out early in the morning because bamboo sheets do take more time to dry. You can also tumble dry your new bed sheets, but on the lowest temperature possible. A low temperature will help reduce any shrinkage that laundry dryers may cause. Or you can do both, put your sheets out on a clothes line and if they aren’t 100% dry, finish them on a low temperature in the laundry dryer.

Do I need to Iron My Bamboo Sheets?

No, it is not necessary to iron your bamboo bed sheets. Besides, in today’s day and age, who has time for that? If you want your bed to look really nice and crisp, you can iron the pillowcases. Just make sure that your iron is set to a low steam temperature. Again, avoid putting too much heat on the bamboo fabric. We also recommend placing your bamboo sheets on the bed right after they have been dried to avoid any wrinkling.

Again, if you follow these steps, you should have great, luxurious and comfortable sheets for years to come.
