Keep Your Scrub Accessories Fresh and Clean With These Tips

On the Blue Sky Scrubs blog, we’ve written about the best ways to care for your scrubs, to help you show up to work looking fresh, clean and ready for the day. But you probably wear more than just scrubs to work, so today we’re going to take a look at the best methods when it comes to caring for the scrub accessories that we know you all love. And if you’ve never purchased or seen our accessories before, this will help you get to know some of our popular scrub accessories, as well as how to take care of them.

Scrub Caps

Let’s start with something that many medical professionals wear every day; a scrub cap. You may need to wear a scrub cap at certain times on the job, or maybe you just prefer the way it looks. We also offer disposable scrub caps, but if you don’t want to be constantly throwing away and putting on new scrub caps, then our washable ones are the way to go. Since all of our scrubs are made with 100% cotton, they can easily go through a washing machine. Just make sure to use cold water and tumble dry on low heat. However, if you want the best outcome for your scrub cap, you should wash it by hand and hang it out somewhere to dry.


Even if it's not cold outside, a scarf can still make a great addition to your outfit, both for style and because many medical professionals complain about cold workplaces. For the best care, machine wash your scarf on a cold, gentle cycle or hand wash with cold water and mild soap. Tumble dry your scarves on low heat for the best outcome.

Compression Socks

Do your feet get cold at work? Even with all the moving around, some hospitals are just too chilly and there's no avoiding it. Our compression socks are perfect for keeping your feet warm. For the best care, machine or hand wash cold. Don’t use a machine dryer, as the elasticity of the compression socks will be compromised. Hang them up or lay them flat to allow them to dry.
