Blue Sky Tips on Keeping Your Scrubs From Fading

Posted by

It’s expected when you first purchase new clothing that the colors will eventually start to fade more and more as they’re washed and dried, but that doesn’t make it any less disappointing when you pull something out of a dryer and it's practically grey when it used to be blue! 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. To see ours, just visit the Blue Sky Co. website.

Press Drying

The biggest factor in your scrubs fading over time is the use of a machine dryer. To keep some color in your scrubs, try press drying them! 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.

What About Fabric Softener?

Fabric softeners can actually cause your clothes to fade quicker! If you’ve been using fabric softeners to avoid static when removing your clothes from the dryer, try using static-relieving balls instead!

The Best Drying Method

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!


We’re proud to provide you with this information and we hope that you make good use of these tips. We’re also proud to provide you with the most luxurious, comfortable and practical scrubs available, made only of the finest fabrics!
