How to Care for The Sleepy Sloth Products

It’s great that you’ve purchased our bamboo fabrics for your toddlers. People love our product for its high quality and comfort. However, to maintain the quality of our products 100% intact:

Washing Instructions

Wash your bamboo clothes with similar colors and fabrics. This prevents color bleeding.

Use liquid detergent instead of powder. Powder detergents can leave residue on the fabric, making it feel rough.

Always wash them with cold water and a gentle cycle. Hot water can damage the bamboo fibers and shrink the clothes.

Use a gentle, chemically safe detergent. Harsh detergents can strip away the natural softness of bamboo.

Avoid overloading your washing machine. This allows for better circulation of water and detergent and ensures a thorough cleaning.

Bamboo fabric is naturally soft, so fabric softeners are unnecessary.

Always zip up zippers before washing and drying to prevent them from snagging on other garments.

Bleach can damage the bamboo fibers and fade colors. Use oxygen-based stain remover for stubborn stains.

If you need to disinfect bamboo towels or sheets, use phenolic disinfectant or pine oil.

Avoid harsh scrubbing or wringing the fabric during hand wash.

Ironing Instructions

These fabric are naturally wrinkle-free. However, if you need to iron them, maintain low heat . This protects the fabric from scorching.

Storage Instructions 

tore your Sleepy Sloth bamboo clothes neatly folded on shelves or in drawers. Avoid hanging heavier items like sweaters, as this can stretch the fabric over time.

Why Need Proper Care?

By following these simple care instructions, you can ensure your bamboo clothes stay soft and comfortable.

Proper care will:

  • Proper washing and drying techniques help preserve the natural softness of the bamboo fibers.
  • This will prevent shrinkage, fading, or damage to the fabric.
  • A good care will reduce the need for frequent replacements, contributing to a more sustainable wardrobe.

Care Details

The Sleepy Sloth’s bamboo clothing is known for its softness and comfort. To maintain our quality, follow these instructions when washing your Sleepy Sloth clothing:


  • Use cold water (30°C max) for all washing cycles. This helps preserve the fabric's natural softness and prevents shrinkage.
  • For your new bamboo towels, only wash them with hot water for the first time. This will strengthen the weave, reducing snags in future washes.
  • If you hand wash them, rinse the cloths thoroughly, as oxidation of cellulose from the leftover soap can cause staining. 
  • Avoid bleach and fabric softeners, as they can damage the fabric and leave a residue that reduces breathability.
  • For the layette collection, turn the garments inside out before washing them.
  • Bamboo cloths should be washed on a gentle cycle to stay soft. A regular cycle is okay for bamboo linen. 
  • Before loading the cloths into the washing machine, flip the cloths inside out and close any buttons or zip to prevent pilling. 
  • You can use both regular detergent and enzyme-based stain removers; they're safe on bamboo clothing. Just mix a small amount of detergent or stain remover with water. Let it sit for 15 minutes, and then rinse thoroughly. 
  • Don't use harsh chemicals when washing baby cloths. Avoid products containing bleach, optical brighteners, additives, and harsh chemicals. 
  • When washing your blanket, zip it up all the way and wash it normally. Don't turn it inside out. This protects the stitching inside the bag.
  • Wash bamboo with the same type of fabric. Use similar colors and soft fabrics only; skip the Velcro and denim.


The Sleepy Sloth doesn’t recommend using a dryer. Bamboo clothing is best dried by hanging them on a line outside in the sun. This is because the bamboo fabric is naturally moisture-wicking and dries quickly. 

However, if you can't line-dry your bamboo clothing, you can also tumble-dry them on low heat. You can also lay them flat on a drying rack or leave them under a wall fan for 12-24 hours.

Ironing & Storage

We recommend folding your cloths instead of hanging them. You don’t need to iron your cloth if you store them properly. However, if you iron them first, slightly dampen them. Then iron on low heat.
