Blue Sky Tips To Avoid Fading Scrubs Fabrics

Posted by

If you wear scrubs every day, as most medical scrubs professionals do, you’ll want them to stay in excellent shape. If you love the way your vibrant and colorful scrubs look, especially if they’re Blue Sky scrubs, then what can you do to keep them that way and prevent fading? What if they’ve already started to fade? A lot of people out there would let their fabrics fade, and then simply throw them out and buy new ones. But here at Blue Sky, we want you to know there are better ways of going about it.

Tips To Prevent Fading

Whether or not you have Blue Sky scrubs, your first step should be to read the label carefully. Treating and washing the fabric as instructed by the manufacturer is the best way to make sure you minimize fading or any other damage that could be done to the scrubs. Nobody knows the product like the people who made it! Pre-washing is very helpful and can keep the colors vibrant for much longer. When it comes to drying, as we’ve discussed elsewhere on the Blue Sky Co. blog, line drying is hands down the best option for your scrubs. It might seem difficult, but if you can find a spot with ample sunlight and a place to put up the clothesline, your scrubs will keep their colors.

Handling Faded Fabrics

If you have a pair of scrubs that are already faded, don’t give up! We’ve got some advice for you! If you soak your scrubs in saltwater overnight and then wash them, it may bring back some of the color! For best results, use about ¼ cup of salt water with your scrubs. White vinegar and baking soda may also help bring back some color. Try washing your scrubs with these too methods (separately) and see if it helps some of the color return.


We hope this advice helps you keep your scrubs in great shape and as bright and colorful as you could ever want. If you’re looking for stylish scrubs with all kinds of vibrant colors that stay that way for a long time, try visiting the Blue Sky Co. website and check out our collection.
