Like Your Scrubs Bright and Colorful? Here's How To Keep Them That Way

You may love the look of your bright, colorful scrubs, especially if it's from Blue Sky. But if you’re not careful, even the highest quality scrubs can start to lose some of their color. That’s why on today’s blog, we’ve decided to give you a list of helpful tips to avoid letting your clothes fade. If you follow these carefully, your medical scrubs will stay vibrant and colorful for a lot longer! It helps of course, if you start off with high quality scrubs.

No Fabric Softeners

Believe it or not, fabric softeners can cause damage to your clothes in the dryer, including causing them to fade. If you’ve been using fabric softeners to avoid static when removing your clothes from the dryer, try using static-relieving balls instead, which achieves the same effect without fading your scrubs.

Try Better Drying Methods

Even if you stop using fabric softeners, sometimes the machine dryer itself will still cause your scrubs or other clothes to fade. To keep some color in your scrubs, try press drying them instead! You may not have used a hot iron in years (or ever!) but go ahead and give it a try! You’ll be pleased with how vibrant your scrubs will be, and they’ll be crisp, warm and wrinkle-free when you put them on.

We’ve saved the best for last, since the extra effort it takes to line dry your scrubs is actually well worth it, and it's probably the most effective option for keeping your scrubs from fading. As long as you can find the time it takes to hang up a clothesline near a window or out in the sun, line-drying will keep your scrubs looking great and feeling crisp and professional!
