Bamboo Bed Sheets Care

Bamboo Bed Sheet Care

Now that you have the most luxurious and softest sheets on the planet, here are some bamboo bed sheets care instructions to help you show your bamboo sheets some love.

Cold Wash

This is the golden rule with all bamboo items as hot water can cause shrinkage and cold water is guaranteed not to do this. Do not fear about nasty bacteria growing in sheets and needing hot water to get rid of it, because bamboo has naturally antibacterial properties it makes it much harder for bacteria and dust mites to build up. As bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal the sheets will stay fresh even during a cold wash cycle.

Wash Cycle

Always use a gentle cycle and wash separately to avoid zippers, hooks and abrasive fabrics.

Only Use Delicate Laundry Detergents

We recommend you use gentle washing liquids or powders as they guarantee to be kind to your fabric. We recommend some of the natural ones found at your local supermarket such as the Earth Choice Wool & Delicates, it has a great eucalyptus base and is easy on the wallet. You may choose to continue to use your regular detergent, just be mindful that some do contain brighteners and bleach which may have a staining effect on your sheets.


If you need to remove stains from your sheets, look for something natural from your supermarket. Again Earth’s Choice has some excellent non-bleach and non-chlorine based products.


As with just about every fabric, the most risk free results come from line drying flat and out of direct sunlight, but we know this is not always possible. You may tumble dry so long as you dry the sheets on a cool and delicate cycle.


If you like to iron your sheets, some might call you crazy, but as long as you iron on a cool setting you will be fine. If you would like the natural way of getting your sheets crease free, spread them out flat, draped over your line and the weight of them will pull the creases out. Another benefit of bamboo sheets is their ability to drape very well. Even if there are wrinkles from being washed or stored, they will go away within a few hours of the bed being made.


Occasionally with bamboo you might see some pilling occur on the sheets, this is due to the bamboo sheets being a natural fabric and not treated with any chemicals. This pilling is normal, especially in response to friction and isn’t a fault or defect. The pilling will naturally shed and can be reduced or removed during the washing and drying process (as per the care instructions). The pilling is usually removed after 5 or 6 washes, or earlier. Pilling doesn’t always occur but it’s also not unusual in the initial use period, it depends on the amount of friction and body heat.
