|I love bamboo. They feel great & look great. Apparently you need to watch what you use on them as far as stain removal or washing(no bleach, no oxyclean). To be honest, my bamboo doesn't seem to stain as easily as my cotton did. But I soak & soak & soak my dipes in plain tap water(for days, if necessary)if they look like they might get stains prior to washing. And the sun does a great job also. So in my opinion, you shouldn't need any stain remover chemicals anyway. But that's my opinion. I'm miss au nat ur ale.
Cotton ME are virtually bulletproof. If you're gonna have a mess of kids, then those are field tested to last & last. Bamboo just hasn't been around long enough to know that part.
Again, I love my bamboo. Haven't regretted it one bit. Would(and have) ordered more in bamboo without a second thought.
Oh yeah, welcome to the wonderful world of cloth! We're glad to have another sister here.
