Blue Sky Scrub Maintenance: Stain Removal
Posted by Amy on 18th Jan 2020
If you’re a returning Blue Sky customer, we’re happy to have you! If you’ve purchased scrubs from us before, we know you probably felt great the first time you ever tried them on, and you vowed to keep your brand new high-quality scrubs as clean as possible. But when you’re working long shifts in the medical industry, accidents are bound to happen. When accidents happen, stains happen. But don’t worry! If you keep reading, you’ll know exactly how to remove or prevent stains on your scrubs, whether they’re Blue Sky scrubs or not.
Most medical facilities should have hydrogen peroxide easily accessible, and it works great for removing stains on scrubs before it becomes a more permanent stain, especially if its blood. All you have to do is poor the peroxide on the stain, let it sit for a while, and then rinse it off with some water. It works best if you use cold water. Once you do that, the stain should come right out!
Next up, we recommend keeping a stain stick somewhere nearby when you go to work. You can put one in your locker, or in your pocket so that its right there in case of a spill. If you know you’re the clumsy type and you’re likely to spill something on your scrubs every once in a while, it's an especially good idea to keep a stain stick in your pocket.
Some messes might be too big to clean up your scrubs with hydrogen peroxide or a stain stick. Or maybe you just don’t have those things nearby for whatever reason. If either of these are the case, it would be very handy to have a pair of back-up scrubs in your locker at work. That way, in case you get a stain on your scrubs, you can just change into your back-up scrubs and give your other scrubs a full wash once you get home.
We hope this advice has been helpful when you’re dealing with messes and stains at work. You should also know that Blue Sky Scrubs are made to repel stains better than your average scrubs. To check them out for yourself, please visit the Blue Sky Co. website.
