How to Store your Bamboo Bedding Safely

We spend almost a third of our lives in bed, which is why we are passionate about our luxurious bamboo bedding. We want your bed to be your home's softest, loveliest, and most comfortable sanctuary.

Bamboo bedding elevates your sleeping experience to a new level, so it is essential to care for your sheets and organic bamboo duvet covers safely. 

Knowing the right way to wash, dry, and store your bedding is critical to creating a soothing sleep environment. Bamboo sheetsduvet covers, and pillowcases can be used, washed, and dried like all-natural fibres. 

Read on to learn more about how to store your bamboo bedding safely.

Washing your bamboo bedding

How often you wash your bedding is a personal preference. Typically, it's a good idea to wash bedding and bamboo quilt covers at least fortnightly to remove dirt and dust. We recommend washing your pillowcases weekly as they absorb oils and face creams. 

We recommend using warm or cold water rather than hot as hot water can shrink fibres and fade colours. Washing coloured quilt covers and pillowcases inside out can also help protect the colour from fading.

Drying your bamboo bedding

 We're lucky in Australia; we can hang sheets outside to dry almost all year round. Line drying is the best option after washing bamboo bed sheets as it dries the fibres without damaging them, keeping your sheets soft, antibacterial, and hypoallergenic for longer.

If you must use a dryer, use a low delicate setting, and retrieve the sheets as soon as the cycle ends. If you have the time, ironing your sheets is an excellent way to ensure they are properly dry and add a little extra luxury.

Storing your bamboo bedding

To avoid mildew spots, ensure your bedding is completely dry before storing. Store your spare sheets, pillowslips, and duvet cover neatly folded in a cool, dry wardrobe, laundry cupboard, or drawer.

Line the surfaces of your storage spot with acid-free tissue paper, which helps prevent any yellowing of the fabric. 

If your bamboo sheet set encounters any moisture or dampness, it will naturally absorb it. This dampness can result in a musty odour that can be difficult to remove. Dry, cool locations can help you avoid this issue.
