A mild, liquid detergent works best in cold water. Fabric softener or bleach should never be used as they may ruin the fabric. They are already soft and will stay that way after washing. Do not worry if when wet your sheets feel stiff and heavy, that is normal. When dry they instantly become light and airy again.
If possible, line dry your sheets by draping them flat on the line, preferably in the shade to preserve fibres, colours, and texture. Your sheets will also straighten out when you line dry them removing all the wrinkles. You can certainly use a dryer, but please be careful to choose a low heat or airing setting and a low tumble cycle. As soon as the dryer finishes, remove your sheets from the dryer immediately to keep them wrinkle free.
Bamboo fabric drapes very well so it’s possible after washing and drying as per the above instructions that they will be wrinkle free. Wrinkles from folding gradually go away in a few uses. Lay the sheets flat on your bed after washing and drying, by the time you hit the bed at night, they will be flat and fresh, ready to give you the good night’s sleep you deserve. If you are after a crispier look, you can iron them, just make sure the temperature is on the lowest possible to prevent burning or sticking.
Our blankets and throws can be machine washed in a cold and gentle wash cycle and then line dried flat in the shade. Many customers choose to dry clean the bamboo blankets and throws in order to preserve the soft and smooth texture of the bamboo fibres. We recommend dry cleaning for the longevity of the product, especially for the bamboo throw tassles.
