We love bamboo for it's buttery-soft texture, breathability, and stretch. When you take the plunge to invest in Lulush The Label bamboo pajamas for your littles, you want to ensure that they'll last as long as possible! We are going to share with you our top tips for extending the lifespan of your bamboo sleepwear. Get ready to unlock the secret to snuggling up in softness for years to come!

Before we delve into the tips, let's quickly revisit why bamboo sleepwear holds a special place in our hearts (and closets). Picture this: a fabric as soft as a whisper, as gentle as a breeze, wrapping you in a cocoon of comfort every night. That's the magic of bamboo – breathable, hypoallergenic, and oh-so-luxurious against your skin.

But here's the thing – bamboo sleepwear isn't just about instant gratification. It's an investment in your nightly bliss, a commitment to long-term comfort that deserves a little TLC to ensure it stays as dreamy as the day you brought it home.

Tips for Extending the Lifespan of Your Lulush Bamboo Sleepwear:

  1. Handle with Care: Treat your bamboo sleepwear like the precious treasure it is. Opt for the gentlest washing cycles with mild detergent (remember less is more when it comes to detergent!), and always separate dark and light colours to prevent colour bleeding.

  2. Say No to Heat: Bamboo fibers are delicate and need to be washed in cold water to maintain it's softness. By using cold water only washing cycles you'll prevent shrinkage and preserve its softness (plus, it's great for the environment!)

  3. Stain Treatment: As careful as we try to be, stains happen! It's always best to treat stains immediately to avoid the stain setting into the fabric. There are many natural remedies for removing stains for natural fibres such as a mild detergent or a natural stain remover spray.

  4. Skip the Fabric Softener: While it may be tempting to add a splash of fabric softener for that extra fluffiness, resist the urge! Fabric softeners can leave residues that diminish the breathability of bamboo fabric over time. We recommend using a gentle, eco-friendly detergent on cold water.

  5. Avoid The Dryer: To prevent pilling and to keep your bamboo sleepwear in the best shape possible it's recommended to air dry your bamboo by laying them flat or hanging them. Using high heat to dry bamboo can cause the fibres to rub against each other, damaging the delicate fibres and causing the fabric to pill. If you must put them in the dryer, use a low to no heat setting on tumble dry.

  6. Fold, Don't Hang: Keep your bamboo sleepwear happy by folding it neatly in your drawer instead of hanging it up. This helps maintain its shape and prevents stretching or distortion of the fabric.

  7. Rotate and Rest: Just like you, your bamboo sleepwear needs a break now and then. Rotate between multiple sets to give each piece a chance to rest and recover its elasticity.


And there you have it – the keys to making your bamboo sleepwear last longer and love you back just as much as you love it. So, the next time you slip your little into those silky-soft Lulush bamboo pajamas, remember these simple tips to keep them in tip-top shape.
