Machine Drying or Line Drying: What's Better?
Posted by Amy on 7th Mar 2021
For people with very busy schedules, like most medical uniforms professionals, it's difficult to find time for even necessary things like doing your 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 stretchy scrubs, you just might have to make the time for it.
How Effective is the Machine Dryer?
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. Abrasion 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 probably want to keep them looking that way. There’s got to be a better way to dry them than just machine dryer.
Why Line 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 on a balcony, and pin your clothes up on the rope to let the circulating air and sunlight do all the rest of the work! When you think about it, it really isn’t much work, and you’ll keep all your stretch scrubs in great condition.
At Blue Sky Scrubs, we always try to provide not only the best scrubs that you can find, but also the right information to help you take great care of your new soft scrubs. So once you bought your brand new, super comfy set of Blue Sky scrubs, remember to line dry and not use the dryer!
