The medical industry can be a hectic environment, and accidents are bound to happen. At some point or another while you’re working, you’re bound to end up spilling something on your scrubs. 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 three tips for dealing with those stains and keeping your scrubs looking fresh for your whole shift.
Quick Stain Removal
When you spill something on your scrubs, you’ll want to act fast. The quickest and easiest way to deal with a new stain on your scrubs is hydrogen peroxide. 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.
This next tip is useful if you’re dealing with a particularly big mess; make sure you have a pair of backup scrubs! With a second set of scrubs on hand, you can immediately take off your stained scrubs and change into your backup. Then you can rinse off the messy scrubs, stick them in a locker, and give them a full wash once you get home.
Keep A Stain Stick
A handy stain stick can be an easy solution to the frequent messes of a medical workplace. 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.
We hope our advice has been helpful when it comes to keeping your scrubs stain-free. To check out our full collection of luxurious stretch scrubs, lab coats or other medical apparel, visit the Blue Sky Scrubs website.
