Don't Make These Mistakes With Your Medical Scrubs!

1When you’re in a rush, or you feel desperately low on energy, it’s tempting to cut corners. Laundry is time consuming, and we get it. But with some fabrics, attention to detail is necessary. If you miss a step, you could very well risk harming your beautiful scrubs. We want to help you keep your Blue Sky scrubs looking professional, stylish, and spick and span! That’s why we’ve compiled a few helpful hints at what not to do in the laundry room.

  1. Forgetting to Read Labels

Most scrub sets are simple to wash, and that’s one of the reasons why we love them so much! But you just never know what you might run into. Its best to keep yourself in the habit of checking labels before you wash an item for the first time.

  1. Scrubbing Away Stains

If you accidentally stain your scrubs, resist the urge to scrub it away! You may risk wearing down the fabric, or worsening the stain itself. Instead, spot treat the stain as soon as you notice it. Then, using a white cloth, blot the stain gently until it’s been removed. Your scrubs will thank you.

  1. Too Much Detergent for nursing uniforms!

When it comes to measuring detergent for a load of laundry, remember that less is more! This isn’t just to save money on laundry soap. In fact, excess suds can mix with dirt, and get caught on the fabric. If it happens to get caught on a section that doesn’t rinse well (inside of a pocket, underneath a collar) it can eventually build up bacteria! Yikes!

  1. Overusing the Dryer

Instead of drying your scrubs in the dryer, consider hanging them up after washing! Less exposure to intense heat will help preserve your scrubs, keeping the fabric strong, and the patterns bright and beautiful.
