3 Blue Sky Tips For Dealing With Stains On Your Scrubs
Posted by Amy on 18th Jan 2022
The job of a medical professional can be hectic, and through the course of your work you’re bound to end up spilling something on your scrubs at some point. But that doesn’t make it any less disappointing when it happens, especially if you love the scrubs you wear! At Blue Sky Scrubs we do our very best to help you look good at work, and that includes giving you advice on how to combat stains on your scrubs. Here’s our professional advice on keeping your scrubs as fresh as possible.
When you’re going to work, it's a good idea to bring a stain stick with you. You should be able to fit one in your pocket, ready to be used any time there's a spill on your scrubs. If you know you’re clumsy and prone to spills, you’ll be glad you had a stain stick on you.
The Power of Peroxide
Hydrogen peroxide can actually be an excellent way to deal with stains on your scrubs. Usually accessible in a medical environment, hydrogen peroxide is very effective at dealing with a mess on your scrubs before it sets in and becomes a more permanent stain, especially if its blood. Just pour the peroxide on the stain, let it sit there for a while, and then rinse it off with some water. It works best if you use cool water. Once you do that, the stain should come right out!
Have a Backup Plan
This last bit of advice is useful if you’re dealing with a particularly big mess: bring a pair of backup scrubs to work! With backup scrubs on hand, you can immediately take off your stained scrubs and change into your backup, so that you can rinse your stained scrubs at work, and then put them in a back or a locker and give them a full wash once you get home.
We hope our advice has been helpful when it comes to keeping your scrubs stain-free. To check our our scrubs, lab coats or other items, or to read helpful blogs like this one, please visit the Blue Sky website.
