Bamboo is one of our favourite choices for your bedding. Ideal for allergy sufferers, bamboo fibres are naturally antibacterial and hypoallergenic – perfect for sleepers that get wheezy around down or wool. With a breathable and thermoregulating construction, bamboo also helps to keep your body temperature consistent to prevent sweating. Plus, bamboo fibres are strong and durable, making bamboo bedding a great choice for the whole family.

If you’ve recently made the switch over to bamboo bedding, we have all the tips and tricks you need to take care of your new mattress protectors, pillow protectors, pillows, and quilts. Following the steps in this guide, you can make sure your luxury bamboo bedding stays in perfect condition – wash after wash.

Wash before wear

We know how exciting it is to have new bedding to enjoy -  but before you go straight from the bag to your bed, take a moment to check if it needs a wash. While bamboo quilts and pillows just need a good fluff before you add them to your bed, we recommend putting your mattress and pillow protectors through the wash before use. This makes sure any irritants or dust are removed from the material so you can start getting a soothing night’s sleep straight away.

How and when to wash

To reap the benefits of your bamboo bedding for years to come, it’s important to pay attention to the temperature of your wash. If you can’t get to the dry cleaners to wash your bamboo pillow or quilt, both items can be hand washed or placed in a warm machine wash – which is around 43°C. Mattress and pillow protectors are both machine washable and will benefit from a cold wash cycle set to around 30°C or under. While protectors can be washed regularly, there’s no need to wash a quilt or pillow more than once or twice per year, unless soiled. Never wash your bamboo bedding with bleach; if you’re after a hard-working and fragrant cleaning solution, Aroma Wash will keep your bedding bright white and smelling incredible.

Drying and ironing

To make sure you get the best longevity out of your bamboo bedding, we’ll always recommend line drying in the shade. Not only is it the gentlest way to dry your bedding, but the fresh breeze will also leave your quilts and protectors smelling airy and sweet. However, we understand that sometimes you’re under a time crunch, so our pillow and mattress protectors can be tumble-dried on a low or cool setting. Protectors can also be steam ironed on warm. It’s best to wash your pillows and quilts first thing in the morning so that they have plenty of time to line dry, but both can be tumble dried on warm to achieve complete dryness once they’re 80-90% dry from the line.
