Why Bamboo Bath Caddy?
Overall, there are four major reasons why you choose bamboo bath caddy over wood or plastic ones.
- Bamboo is sustainable.
Global interest in bamboo for home appliances is growing rapidly as climate change changes from theory to scientific facts. Organic bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on the planet. It matures completely in just three years and recovers soon after harvest. Some species of bamboo can grow over 35 cm in a day. Bamboo thrives on otherwise unproductive lands, such as deep canyons and mountain slopes.
2. Bamboo is environment-friendly
When choosing a new, environmentally friendly bath tray, it is good to know that bamboo bath caddy come from completely environmentally friendly and sustainable plants. Bamboo forest is very environmentally friendly. They reduce pollution by producing more than 35 percent more oxygen than trees. Roots form a water barrier that helps control soil erosion. Bamboo also consumes large amounts of nitrogen and helps reduce water pollution.
3. Bamboo is recyclable
According to a survey by the National Association of Home Builders, the construction of a single 2,000-square-foot home produces about 8,000 pounds of waste. Most of the waste is wood, cardboard and gypsum, and most of it is landfilled. Bamboo, by comparison, is completely recyclable.
4. Bamboo is strong
Some bamboo species have the same strength ratio as steel and almost twice the pressure ratio of concrete. Build furnitues with bamboo is not a new concept. Many countries have done this for hundreds of years. Inspired by growing interest in environmentally friendly bamboo, engineers create incredible bamboo structures for schools, hotels, homes and even bridges.

How to maintain bamboo bath caddys
If you want to buy a bamboo bath tray, you need to know how to properly clean and maintain it in order to use this unique device as much as possible. But do you think a bamboo bowl can be formed? How to clean the bamboo bath tray? Molds, bacteria and strange colors can all compromise the comfort of your spa at home. Therefore, we have summarized the tips for maintenance and care of bamboo bath trays.
Bamboo becomes moldy for a variety of reasons. If you don’t know how to clean and maintain the bamboo bath tray, the surface mould of the bamboo product will occur. But what is the reason for the mould to grow? The most common ones are summarized as follows.
The fungus is derived from very fine spores in the air that occur in fruits and cause the biological breakdown of bamboo. It supplies starch and other carbohydrates (sugar) contained in bamboo stalks. At the advanced stage, damage will appear on the surface of the bamboo.
Like almost every other creature on the planet, the fungus must breathe. The limitation that oxygen supply slows growth. However, as long as the humidity is high, some fungi can survive at very low oxygen levels.
Humidity and temperature
If the environment is too humid, all fungi will grow. 40-80% is the optimum humidity level for its rapid growth. Fungiss are most comfortable at temperatures between 25 ° C and 35 ° C. Therefore, you need to be very careful and check these times to make sure you are safe.
Types of fungi that attack bamboo
There are many types of fungis, which are very dangerous not only for items but also for health. To eleminate mould, you need to know all the details about the form type, cause, and prevention.
Surface mods grow at the intersections with the surface of the bamboo bath caddy. It doesn’t affect the strength of the bamboo and is easy to clean.
These bamboo fungis can penetrate the round bamboo not only from the intersection but also from the knot after the branches have been removed. Attacks are indicated by shades of gray-blue / black discoloration on the surface in the form of spots and stripes. It reduces the aesthetic appearance, but does not affect the resistance properties of bamboo (except for violent attacks).
These bamboo fungi cause the most severe damage and growth within the cell’s lumen. Enzymes only break down cellulose and hemicellulose, leaving lignin behind and can cause brown rot. Lignin causes white rot (white rot is more common in bamboo than brown rot). Early dissolution is difficult to detect. Even before a slight color change or weight loss is apparent, the strength characteristics, especially impact strength and bending strength, are significantly reduced. Early damage can be characterized by the moisture of the bamboo. In the post-deterioration stage, the coil becomes a soft, fibrous or powdery mass.
How to Clean Bamboo Bath Caddy Properly
Wash the bamboo bath caddywith soapy water. After washing the bamboo caddy, dry it completely with a towel and let it air dry. Lubrication is required to maintain luster and durability. You can also use a neutral pH floor vacuum cleaner or oil soap to smooth the bamboo bath try and then remove the soap with a soft damp cloth and a dry towel. You can also use a mixture of vinegar and water. Add a cup of vinegar to 1 liter of water. Simply wipe the car with a cloth moistened with the mixture. The vinegar flavor disappears quickly, or you can add essential oils to make it a pleasant flavor. We recommend lavender oil, which is a preservative and has a subdued scent.
You can also add a few drops of mild dishwashing liquid to a pint of water. Clean with a soft sponge or cloth moistened with a solution. You can use a soft toothbrush in hard-to-reach places. A few drops of flaxseed oil or flaxseed oil on a dry cloth will add shine to the bamboo bath tray and maximize shelf life.
- Put the bamboo tub caddy within the dishwasher. The warmth and water will cause the wood to warp and void warranties from most manufacturers.
- Dunk or allow the caddy to stand in water. The wood will soak up water and warp.
