We suggest that using the gentle cycle is best for bamboo clothes to help the material maintain its suppleness. Use cold water for lightly soiled bamboo clothing. For heavily soiled items, select a warm water cycle on your washer and allow the clothing to presoak for at least 15 minutes in the warm water and detergent solution before washing to remove excess soil. NEVER use hot water for regular washing, because it can cause bamboo fabric to shrink.

Bamboo fabrics should be air-dried flat on an indoor folding rack or hung from an outdoor clothesline for best results. Knitted bamboo sweaters and accessories should be dried flat to prevent stretching. If quicker drying is needed, use the low heat cycle of the dryer. Remove the fabric while it's still slightly damp. High temperatures in a dryer can shrink bamboo sheets and clothing.

Bamboo fabric can be prone to oil stains. The best route to removing oil stains from bamboo is to spot clean with a mild degreasing liquid dish detergent and hot water. If that does not work, try soaking the stain for a few minutes in a mixture of 1 part white vinegar and 4 parts water, then continue with your regular wash in cold water to avoid setting the stain further. 

To remove a blood stain from bamboo, spot clean with a tiny bit of hydrogen peroxide (first test a discreet area to see if the color bleeds or not) and wash in cold water.
