Bamboo Bedroom Furniture not Just Bamboo Pillows

To take care of your bamboo furniture no special care is really necessary. All that you need to do is treat it like any other wood furniture. It can be stained and painted. Just be careful that you do not scratch the surface of items as it can leave marks.
Some of you maybe asking why bamboo is so environmentally friendly. Well for one it grows much faster than wood trees. On average bamboo grows ten times faster than wood trees. This means that in one year a bamboo tree will grow as much as a hardwood tree would in ten years.
Bamboo fibers can be used to create bamboo textiles including bamboo pillows, bamboo sheets, and even bamboo comforters. Bamboo fiber is sometimes used for window curtains also.
Caring for bamboo fabrics is also a little different. You will want to wash anything that needs it, on delicate or by hand. Also do not use bleach or harsh detergents. If you come upon any loose strings or hems on the bamboo pillow or sheets cut them immediately as they could pull and cause damage.
You can purchase bamboo pillows online at sites like Amazon.com or even eBay.
