3 Common Scrub Stains and How to Remove Them

It’s no secret that it can be a challenge to keep our medical scrubs clean and pristine! So here we’ve compiled the three most common scrub stains, and how to defeat them! We’re certain that with enough elbow grease and TLC, you can defeat any stain! So let’s get started. And as always, it’s best to start out with quality scrubwear, like scrubs from Blue Sky Co.!


With blood stains, try to get to it as quickly as you can! The easiest thing to do is to remove your scrubs, and run the stain under cold water. Do not use hot water, and do not put your scrubs in the dryer until the stain has been removed! Running your scrubs under cool water may do the trick, but if it doesn’t, launder your scrubs with an enzymatic cleaner, on the cool setting.


To rid your scrubs of sweat stains, start out by rinsing the stained area under water. Then, we suggest making a paste out of four tablespoons baking soda, and a quarter-cup of warm water. You can use a generous amount of this paste on the stain, and let the paste absorb by gently rubbing your fabrics together. Allow the paste sit for 30 to 60 minutes. And finally, rinse and launder as usual.Accessorize your scrubs with a radical surgical scrub hat.


You’re not the only one who’s spilled their lunch on themselves. Don’t worry. We have a way to get those grease stains out of your medical scrubs! For this one, we suggest using dish soap. It’s mild enough to not harm your scrubs, but fierce enough to remove tough stains. Apply a generous amount of dish detergent to the stain. Scrub the stain in a circular motion with an old toothbrush! Then, launder your scrubs in warm water on the heavy duty cycle. Easy, right?
