How to take care of those delicate bamboo fabrics? Bamboo is wonderfully soft, but that means it must be handled with care! Thankfully, I've been washing & drying these bad boys for a while, here's our recommended care instructions:
Garments, swaddles & blankets:
- Machine wash inside out with like colors (seriously, do not mix dark and light!) on gentle cold wash - make sure all the zips, buttons & snaps are closed
- Tumble dry low
- Place garments in garment bag for extra protection
- Bonus points: lay flat to dry for optimal results
- Extra pro tip: use a color catcher to further prevent color bleeding
- Hand wash (do not scrub with a brush!)
- Lay flat or hang to dry
Things to avoid:
- Washing with rough fabrics (such as towels) or other garments with zippers, hooks/buttons, or Velcro – anything that can snag the soft bamboo
- Do not let the fabric soak or stay wet for long. Transfer to dryer immediately. Or tumble dry low for a few minutes to soak excess moisture before hanging to dry - this will prevent bleeds!
- Bleach! Never use bleach on this delicate fabric
- Pulling on the fabric to open snaps - always use your fingers on the snaps directly to open as pulling on the fabric will lead to tears
That's it! If you follow those instructions, you'll be all set!
