Line Drying Scrubs: Is It Worth It?

Posted by

We understand that many medical professionals like you are often too busy to find time for certain activities like laundry. You’re either rushing to work, rushing home, or trying to get some well deserved rest. But hear us out, because once you know how beneficial it can be to properly clean and line dry your scrubwear, you just might have to make the time for it.

Why Should You Line Dry Scrubs?

Unfortunately, as it is with many different kinds of clothing and material, the dryer isn’t the best for your scrubs. After just a few times in the dryer, your scrub top or scrub pants may fade in color and be damaged by the heat. Abrasions may also occur when clothes rub against each other in the dryer, breaking threads and fading colors even more. If you love the way your Blue Sky scrubs look, you’ll probably want to keep them that way. If that’s the case, there’s got to be a better alternative to machine drying.

Even though it may seem like a lot more work, line drying is very simple and easy once you get the hang of it. You’ve probably seen the process before; just hang a rope up in a secluded room somewhere, or outside in a backyard or a balcony, and pin your clothes up on the rope to let the circulating air and sunlight do the rest of the work! When you think about it, it really isn’t much work, and it’ll help keep your scrubs in great condition!
