pesticides on bamboo , no need thankyou

For those germaphobes or laundry challenged, we learn (what we at Bamboo Textiles already know) from the Wall Street Journal about antibacterial bedsheets. They list a couple of brands treated with silver, another with copper, but also bamboo sheets . "these sheets and pillowcases are made from bamboo fibers that wick away moisture, block bacteria growth and are comfortable for people with night sweats." We have seen claims about bamboo's antibacterial properties before and looked further. It appears that "The natural antibacterial properties of bamboo fabric come from an inherent quality of bamboo commonly called “bamboo kun.” Bamboo does not require the use of pesticides due to this natural antifungal antibacterial agent. It is rarely attacked by pests or infected by pathogen. The same natural substance that protects bamboo growing in the field, functions in the spun bamboo fibers." ::Wall Street Journal
