How to care for your bamboo clothes

How to wash bamboo clothes

Caring for your little one's bamboo clothes is essential to ensure their longevity. While handwashing is recommended for delicate items, most bamboo clothing can be safely machine washed on a gentle cycle with a mild detergent. Avoid using fabric softeners, as they can affect the integrity of bamboo fabric.

Here’s a quick guide on how to wash your bamboo clothing: 

  1. Put your bamboo clothes inside a fine mesh laundry bag. For clothing with zippers, zip them up before putting them in the laundry bag.

  2. Use a gentle, eco-friendly detergent. 

  3. Avoid using any bleach or fabric softener. 

  4. Wash in cold water on gentle/delicate cycle.

How to dry bamboo clothes

After washing, proper drying is key to maintaining the softness of bamboo fabric. At The Green Edit, we recommend air drying your bamboo garments to prevent stretching and maintain their shape. However, during wetter months, if using a dryer, do choose a low-heat / gentle setting on your dryer.

What happens if you put bamboo fabric in the dryer?

While bamboo fabric can tolerate low-heat tumble drying, exposure to high heat can lead to shrinkage and damage. To protect the integrity of your child's bamboo garments, it's best to air dry them whenever possible.

By adhering to these guidelines, you'll extend the life of your child's bamboo clothing and reduce your environmental footprint.

Why parents in Singapore love bamboo clothes

At The Green Edit, sustainability is at the heart of everything we do, and bamboo fabric perfectly aligns with our values. Renowned for its eco-friendly attributes and luxurious feel, bamboo clothing is a favorite among conscious consumers. From its soft touch to its moisture-wicking properties, bamboo fabric offers the ideal blend of comfort and style. We're excited to introduce our latest bamboo collection at The Green Edit, featuring a range of garments for children and babies, designed to elevate their wardrobe while honoring the planet.

Supersoft: Known as vegan silk, bamboo's marshmallow-y softness is designed for maximum comfort, making it ideal for babies and toddlers, especially in Singapore's hot and humid weather. Bamboo fabric is also incredibly gentle, breathable, and thermal regulating, ensuring your little bubs stay cozy without overheating. Plus, its moisture-wicking properties help keep them dry and comfortable all night long.

Suitable for eczema-skin: Not only is bamboo fabric gentle on your child's skin, but it's also perfect for eczema-prone or sensitive skin. Parents adore bamboo because it's naturally hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial, making it an excellent choice for babies with delicate skin or those prone to rashes or eczema. With bamboo clothing, you can rest assured knowing that your little one's comfort and well-being are taken care of.

Long-lasting and durable: Don't be fooled by its softness – bamboo fabric is surprisingly durable and long-lasting. It can withstand the rigors of daily wear and tear, repeated washing, and still come out looking and feeling as soft as ever. In fact, bamboo fabric tends to get even softer with each wash, ensuring that your little one's clothing remains cozy and comfortable for years to come. So, when you choose bamboo clothing for your child, you're not just investing in their comfort – you're also making a sustainable choice for the planet.

Sustainable: Bamboo is highly sustainable, requiring much less time and water to grow compared to cotton. A bamboo plant can grow up to 35 inches in just one day! This rapid growth rate enables quicker harvesting compared to other plants. Bamboo also requires significantly less water to grow compared to conventional cotton, making it a more sustainable option. With bamboo's natural antibacterial properties, it eliminates the need for pesticides or fertilizers during cultivation. This not only promotes cleaner farming practices but also results in a fabric that is safer for both the environment and your little ones!
