How to Care for Bamboo
Helping the Planet is Worth the Little Extra Time It Takes to Wash your Sheets, and Will You Save Money Too!You have purchased a luxury organic bed sheet set from SleepBamboo.com made from the bamboo plant grown in Asia. These sheets are 320-thread count and equal to about 800-1000 count cotton sheets. As in any luxury high thread count sheet, caring for your bamboo sheets will be just a little harder than your cotton sheets but it will be well worth the effort, and you will only need to wash your bamboo sheets about half as much as you do your cotton sheets so you will save money on electricity and most importantly, help the planet.
NOTE *** When you have finished washing your bamboo sheets you will notice that they seem slightly wetter than your cotton sheets. This is normal and due to the fabric being 100% bamboo. Bamboo sheets are MUCH MORE absorbent than cotton.
