Posted by Amy on 26th Aug 2022
Any clothing item needs to be taken care of properly if you want it to last. And this is especially important for scrubs, since you need them for work. Here at Blue Sky Scrubs, we bring you high quality scrubs made to keep you comfortable and last longer than other scrubs. But even with the best scrubs money can buy, it's helpful to know what you can do to keep them in great condition. Here’s our advice for maintaining your scrubs for longevity.
Proper Stain Removal
Your scrubs are bound to get stains on them, and when they do, it's important that you know the right way to remove the stains. We’ve written before about some great ways to combat stains on your scrubs. Our main tips would be using hydrogen peroxide, keeping a stain stick handy, or having backup scrubs with you at work to change into.
Use a Hot Iron
A lot of people don’t use hot irons any more, but it's still a great way to make your scrubs look neat and tidy! Besides that, it also kills any remaining bacteria on your scrubs.
Don’t Mix Scrubs With Other Clothes
Your scrubs aren’t the same as other clothes, and it's important that they receive special care. Due to the kinds of bacteria and contaminants that may be on your scrubs, they need to be thoroughly disinfected, meaning they should be washed on their own. And when it comes to drying your scrubs, we recommend line drying instead of using the machine dryer.
Inspect Scrubs Often
After washing and drying your scrubs, using a hot iron and anything else necessary for proper scrub care, be sure to thoroughly inspect your scrubs before putting them on. Are there any pesky stains lingering, or any loose threads that need to be cut off? Make sure your scrubs are in great condition before you put them on.
