How to Properly Clean Bamboo

How to clean bamboo productsAll of the pieces in our Bamboo Bathroom Accessories line are crafted from 100% natural and eco-friendly bamboo. Bamboo is sturdy and gives an elegant touch to any bath decor. With proper care and regular cleaning, our bamboo accessories will last for years to come.

For Bamboo Products in the Shower/Bath:

Some of our bamboo accessories are designed for use in the bath and shower, and these pieces feature built-in draining slats to prevent water damage. If your bathroom tends to stay steamy, you may want to wipe your bamboo pieces down with a dry microfiber cloth after each use.

For Bamboo Products Outside the Shower/Bath:

Other products in our bamboo line are not directly exposed to water. You can keep these pieces looking like new with regular dusting and occasionally wiping them down with slightly dampened cloth.

How to Clean Bamboo:

Bamboo is naturally anti-microbial, but we still recommend periodically cleaning all of our products. For the best results, try either of the following:

  1. Add a few drops of mild dish soap and two teaspoons of ammonia to a half-gallon of water. Use a soft sponge or cloth to avoid scratching, and be sure to wring out the excess water before applying it to the furniture.
  2. You can also use a mixture of vinegar and water; add ¼ cup of vinegar to 1 quart of water. Simply wipe your mat down with a cloth that has been dampened in the mixture. The vinegar smell dissipates naturally or you might add a favorite essential oil for a pleasant scent.

A soft toothbrush can be used for hard-to-reach spots. After washing your furniture, be sure to let it dry completely. Place it outside or on a non-porous surface inside to dry.

Do Not Use:

When you go to clean bamboo, we do not recommend using abrasive cleaners or pads that could strip the surface and cause your accessories to warp over time. Also, do not soak your bamboo products as that could encourage mildew growth.

Shine It Up:

If you want to add a little shine to your bamboo pieces, treat them with a few drops of linseed or flax seed oil. After polishing your bamboo, be sure to wipe away any excess oil.
