Question How do you wash your bamboo?

Some bamboo diaper and insert makers say to wash in cool or cold water so they will last longer since bamboo is fragile. If I do that then I have to wash all my bamboo dipes and inserts separately from my other diapers. And will a cold wash really get them clean enough? I don't want to have to wash my dipes separately.

What do you do?

I just wash mine with everything else (all natural fibers). I've been doing that for 4 years with no problems

Using a hot wash? That's what I'd like to do, wash everything on hot.

Thanks for the response.

Yep. I do a cold rinse, hot wash with a cold rinse and an extra cold rinse.

great! It is reassuring to know that others wash bamboo in hot also.
