3 Common Scrub Stains and How to Get Rid of Them

Accidents are inevitable. We can’t prevent them from happening. But we can certainly handle how we deal with them! When you’re at work and your scrubs catch a spill, it’s best to tackle that spill immediately- before it becomes a stain! Below are three common stains we find on our scrubs, and how to get rid of them for good.


For fresh blood stains, apply hydrogen peroxide over the stain. Next, rinse the area thoroughly with clean, cool water. If you don’t have hydrogen peroxide near you, then you can rinse the area with cool water, and rub the area with a bar of soap, lathering gently.


Most of the food stains you’ll run into are called combination stains. These are stains like ketchup, mustard, makeup, and so on. They’re a combination of other stains! For these accidents, start by rinsing off any of the excess stain with cold water. Then, gently rub a soap or detergent into the stain. Apply a stain stick, and once you’re home, toss your scrubs into the laundry!

Bodily Fluid

We saved this one for last, simply because it’s definitely the stain you want to run into the least! Bodily fluids, like vomit. You’ll come into contact with these stains on the occasion, and when it happens, you’ll want to be ready. So first, scrape off any chunks that may be sticking to your scrubs- gross! Then rinse the stain with warm water; if it’s a fresh stain, hopefully this is your last step. But if not, use a baking soda and vinegar concoction to help lift the stain, and remove any odor that may remain.
