How To Make Your Scrubs Last a Lifetime
Posted by Amy on 2nd Sep 2017
We’re beyond happy to hear that you’ve found a pair of Blue Sky scrubs that are so comfortable you’d like for them to last a lifetime! And well, while we can’t guarantee that your scrubs will last you your whole life- we can offer some advice for increasing their longevity! Read on to find several helpful tips for helping your scrubs last as long as possible!
Pre Wash After Purchasing
It’s always best to give your scrubs a good pre wash after you purchase them. Fill the tub with extra water, and add half a cup of white vinegar to the load to help properly sanitize them. They’ll be ready for wear in a cinch, and the colors will have set in perfectly!
Line Dry After Washing
Line drying your scrubs keeps them safe from the dryer, which isn’t necessarily unsafe, but its heat and intensity will definitely wear out your scrubs much faster than you wish. Hang them out to dry on a sunny, beautiful day!
Hot Iron Your Scrubs
Occasionally, break out that old hot iron and give your scrubs a good ironing. It’ll keep them looking firmly pressed, which helps them to look professional and sleek!
Save Your Scrubs for Work
The last tip we have to offer is to save your scrubs for work. Don’t wear them out in public, and don’t wear them around the house (unless they’ve been retired- that’s permissible!). It’s best to save them for when you absolutely need them. And don’t forget to properly transport them home! Use a wet/dry bag, ziplock bag, or duffel bag.
So there you have it, friends! Four great ways to help your scrubs last a lifetime. We hope these tips have been helpful, and don’t forget to check out our collection of luxurious scrub wear and scrub accessories!
