Bamboo underwear will maintain their special qualities when washed in cold to warm water (up to 105 degrees Fahrenheit / 40 degrees Celsius) with a gentle detergent, free of bleach. You may want to use a gentle cycle for all YOCISCO Underwear. If necessary, bamboo underwear can be dried in a clothes dryer on the cool setting.
We recommend washing rather than dry cleaning for our underwear. Use the gentle wash cycle or hand wash and use a good brand of gentle soap powder or liquid. We recommend that you don’t use bleach, Chlorine bleaches often cause discoloring.
If hand washing, rinse well to help prevent staining caused by oxidation of cellulose by the leftover soap build-up.
Fabric pilling can be prevented to some extent by proper clothes washing and care. Wash your garments inside out on a shorter wash cycle with gentle agitation and remove them from the dryer promptly. To remove fabric pills, stretch the fabric over a curved surface and carefully cut or shave off the pills.
Line drying in the sun is best, if possible. Machine drying is ok but don’t over do it! Over drying can result in damaged fabrics.
