Here's Why Your Scrubs Fade In The Dryer, And How You Can Fix It

Posted by

This might be a familiar story to you; your brand new pair of scrubs arrives, and you love them, but after just one or two times through the dryer, the color is practically gone, or severely faded! Here at Blue Sky Co., we want you to look and feel your very best every day you go into work. If you follow these tips, faded scrubs will be a thing of the past.

Why Your Scrubs Fade

As you’ve probably already learned the hard way, the dryer isn’t the best thing for your clothes, especially not colorful scrubs. After just a few times in the dryer, the heat will often cause damage or fading in your clothes. Abrasion may also occur when clothes rub against each other in the dryer, breaking threads and fading colors even more. If you love the way your Blue Sky scrubs look, you probably want to keep them looking that way. There’s got to be a better way to dry them than just a machine dryer.

A Better Method

Even though it may seem like a lot more work, line drying is very simple and easy once you get the hang of it. You’ve probably seen the process before; just hang a rope up in a secluded room somewhere, or outside in a backyard or on a balcony, and pin your clothes up on the rope to let the circulating air and sunlight do all the rest of the work! When you think about it, it really isn’t much work, and you’ll keep all your scrubs in great condition.

At Blue Sky Scrubs, we always try to provide not only the best scrubs that you can find, but also the right information to help you take great care of your new scrubs. So once you bought your brand new, super comfy set of Blue Sky Scrubs, remember to line dry and not use the dryer! Check out our awesome blog
