Bamboo sheets are made with natural source fibers such as cotton or wool. The bamboo sheet also behaves like other natural fabrics such as cotton or wool. If you will wash it at high heat or soak it in warm water for a long time it will shrink. Wash bamboo fabrics in cold water at a gentle to medium cycle with other like-colored items. Bamboo sheets lose some strength when wet, so if you have items with hooks or eyelets that may catch, place these items in a lingerie bag to wash.

Use regular laundry detergent for bamboo sheets, but do not use any chlorine bleach, as the bleach weakens your bamboo sheets and can cause yellowing. Bamboo sheets or other items made with bamboo fabric are naturally soft, so do not use fabric softener or dryer sheets. Do not dry clean bamboo fabrics.

Bamboo sheets or other beddings made of bamboo fabric should be dried as gently as possible to reduce shrinkage and stretching problems. Here are three ways to dry bamboo sheets in the best possible manner;

  1. Laid Flat Dry: Place the wet sheets or garments on top of a clean, dry towel laid flat on a bed, for example, ensuring the item lays flat without wrinkles or stretching, this way it will not lose its shape and size. Allow your sheets or garment to remain in this neutral position until completely dry.
  2. Line Dry: If you choose to line dry, double up the garment on the line so, it does not stretch and warp its shape.
  3. Tumble Dry: If you tumble dry your item, use a low to medium heat or fluff setting and remove the item from the dryer when slightly damp but don’t switch to a high heat setting.

Bamboo sheets require no special storage considerations. They resist to fading from sunlight, as well as mildew and damage from moths, this is also a great quality of bamboo sheets. Hang or fold your bamboo items as you want.

Natural Anti-Bacterial Properties

Bamboo has natural anti-bacterial properties like other natural types of fabrics, so you don't need to worry about hot-water washes to sanitize clothing or bedding sheets. After washing the bamboo sheet, when you remove your sheet from the washer for the first time, the fabric can feel stiff like canvas. Once you dry them naturally they again become as softer as before. Do not be surprised if you find extra lint after washing your bamboo sheets, as bamboo fabrics release the short fibers during the first few washings.
