Despite the plant origins of the bamboo, the polyester wins hands down, says Pat Slaven, a textile expert at Consumers Union in Yonkers, New York, which produces Consumer Reports magazine.
“Don’t get me wrong,†she says. “I love cotton, I love natural fibers, but polyester’s going to clothe the planet.â€
...
“It’s pretty outrageous at this point,†says Slaven, who recently testified before the Federal Trade Commission on “Bamboozled by Bamboo.â€

Consumer Reports' textile engineer Pat Slaven says you can get rid of a lot of common stains yourself.She helped write Consumer Reports' new handbook how to clean and care for practically anything.
"The best thing to do is start working on it right away.The sooner you get to it, the easier it is to get out," she said.
All you need are some simple, inexpensive products.Then, say you get a wine or fruit juice stain:
"Start with a bit of liquid dish detergent in water: one teaspoon in a cup of water.When you can't remove any more color, finish it with a bit of hydrogen peroxide and this will help to remove the last traces of the red coloring."
...
Pat says it's ideal for getting out tomato sauce, gravy and other oil-based stains.

"The tomato sauce is completely gone," she said, demonstrating.
