I just mentioned under Daily Operations that I had discovered the joys of bamboo sheets. You can read my review about them at in the article section of The B&B Lady.
I didn’t talk about another benefit of these sheets, and that is how environmentally friendly they are at the inn too. Bleaches are harder on bamboo and silk than they are even on other fibers, so you need a different way of keeping them bright and soft. Try baking soda in the wash cycle and white vinegar in the rinse cycle for soft, bright sheets.
Actually, that combination is great for all of your laundry.
The other savings in laundering bamboo sheets is that cold water is better for the fibers than hot water is. So by doing a cold-water wash, you save the fuel normally used in heating water. Perfect!
