How to Clean up Mold in Bamboo Tableware?

As a kind of eco-friendly product, bamboo tableware may cause the growth of mold due to a characteristic of its material, which will greatly affect our use. The following will introduce the causes of mildew on bamboo tableware and the specific steps to remove mildew.

The reason why bamboo tableware is easy to moldy 

Because bamboo cutlery belongs to bamboo products, and bamboo products can easily absorb water. The water inside the bamboo material can be divided into two parts: free water and bound water. The mildew is caused by free water. The outer skin of bamboo is basically oily, which makes the free water difficult to discharge. Therefore, bamboo products are prone to mold growth. , Bamboo products contain a lot of organic matter, protein, starch, and bamboo fiber. Under the right humidity and temperature, there will be a steady stream of mildew. This is because the bamboo fiber structure of bamboo itself is closely related to the texture structure of bamboo. The fiber of bamboo is thicker and the texture is coarse. The mold is easy to hide in it, which is very suitable for the growth of mold. Mold can damage the interior of bamboo and cause discoloration in appearance.
