Keep Those Vibrant Colors From Fading
Posted by Amy on 17th Nov 2018
So you’ve recently purchased a new set of scrubs, or perhaps even a new wardrobe full of scrubs! And they’re bright, vibrant, and look brand new. How do you keep them looking this way? Well, here are three great tips for getting started! Follow these guidelines and your scrubs will stay vibrant much longer!
Give Your Scrubs a Pre-Wash
Start out on the right foot. You can do this by giving your scrubs a thorough pre-wash before you wear them! Toss them in the washer with nothing but other scrubs, add in 1/2C of white cleaning vinegar for sanitation, and fill the tub full with plenty of water.
Always Avoid Using the Dryer
Another thing you can do that is great for your medical scrubs is to avoid using the dryer at all costs. The dryer’s heat leads to fading and discoloration, not to mention abrasion occurs inside the dryer; your scrubs rub together, etc. Avoid all of this by using alternate methods to drying your scrubs!
Line Dry Your Scrubs
Instead of using the dryer, consider line drying your scrubs! Don’t worry; this is much, much easier than it initially sounds! You can create a clothesline almost anywhere- even on the balcony of an apartment. Or you can drape your scrubs over doors, chairs, and other furniture to dry. Just be sure to rotate them every now and then so they dry evenly!
