Bamboo, a sustainable crop, produces a luxurious fabric that is a lot like Rayon. It’s surged forward as one of the latest eco fashion trends because of its ability to grow and regrow quickly. Whether you want sheets and towels for your home or t-shirts and pajama shirts to wear, you can find bamboo or blended products both in stores and online.
It’s becoming a popular choice for clothing, especially among the people who worry about the environmental damage that other plants grown for clothing, such as cotton, do to the land. Since a smooth, comfortable fabric can be made from processing this grass, it’s a fantastic choice for anything from scarves to shirts to bamboo pajamas. However, it is also very important to make sure that you know how to care for your bamboo clothing to help make it last.
When you wash your clothes, you need to check the tag inside your garment and follow the instructions the manufacturer provides there. But if the tag is lost or unreadable, here are some basic guidelines for washing and caring for your bamboo fabric. You, however, are the one who is responsible for your clothes. When taking care of them, please use your own common sense.
Bamboo is a natural fiber, so it is prone to shrinking in hot water. And if it is handled roughly when it is washed, it can lose its shape. If machine washing your clothing, use cool water and a gentle cycle. If you prefer to hand wash the garment instead, then don’t be too rough when it when you handle it. Also make sure that any other clothes washed in at the same time are of the same or a similar color, since natural fibers tend to pick up dyes easily.
Drying fabric made from bamboo should be done without any excess heat, to prevent shrinking. Line drying is best, though you can also put it in a dryer under the no-heat air dry setting. Also, don’t use high heat on the garment if it needs ironing. Avoid steam and use a cool dry setting, instead.
The care instructions for your clothes may be different if your garment uses a blend of different fibers or if it has a delicate construction. When washing any clothing, including your bamboo pajamas, ensure that the washing methods you use are good for the fabric. As long as you take care of them correctly, your clothes will last for a while.
