How to Clean Bamboo Products


Bamboo is an increasingly popular material used in cutting boards, flooring, furniture, window blinds and a number of other household products. Cleaning bamboo products requires little more than a soft cloth, sponge or mop, some water and a mild cleaning agent such as dish detergent, and a vacuum cleaner. Bamboo can be cleaned as often as necessary. Always read any instructions included with the product for more specific details regarding cleaning.

Things You'll Need

  • Vacuum
  • Feather duster
  • Soft cloth
  • Sponge
  • Mop
  • Mild detergent
  • Water
  • Dust the bamboo using a feather duster for blinds, a dry mop for floors or a soft cloth for any other bamboo products. Vacuum cleaners with a padded cleaning head or hose extension are also acceptable for removing dust from bamboo products.

  • Dampen a soft cloth, sponge or mop and wipe the bamboo clean. Take care not to use excessive amounts of water, as this could damage the bamboo. Use a mild cleaning agent such as dish detergent if the bamboo is excessively dirty.

  • Dry the bamboo completely using a soft cloth or dry mop.

Tips & Warnings

  • Certain bamboo kitchen utensils or products may be dishwasher safe. These products are usually made up of a single piece of bamboo rather than several glued together. Read the packaging carefully to be sure.
  • Don't let water or any other liquids sit on the bamboo too long to avoid damage.
