How To Avoid Letting Medical Scrubs Fade

Posted by

Here at Blue Sky Co., we use only the finest fabrics to make exquisite scrubwear with special properties and custom designs, but even with the best scrubs that money can buy, washing and drying can fade your medical scrubs over time. That’s why we’ve come up with this important list of tips for you to follow to help keep your scrubs fresher for longer.

Pressing Scrubs

One of the most effective ways at avoiding fading in your medical scrubs is by pulling out that old hot iron and pressing your scrubs. Not only will it help with fading, but you’ll also be able to put on a crisp, great looking pair of medical scrubs with no wrinkles for your next work shift.

Try To Avoid Fabric Softeners

Did you know that using fabric softeners can actually cause your clothes to fade in color more quickly? And of course, the same applies for medical scrubs. Liquid fabric softeners are one of the worst things to use on your clothes if you want to avoid fading. If you have an issue with static when you take your clothes out of the dryer, try using static-relieving balls instead of fabric softener.

Benefits Of Line Drying

Last but not least, consider line drying. While it may be much easier to just throw your clothes in the drying machine after each wash, dryers are the biggest culprit when it comes to fading your medical scrubs. If you put in the effort of hanging up a clothesline somewhere outside or near a window where sunlight can reach it, you’ll find that the wait of the drying is worth the outcome. Your clothes will stay much more vibrant for much longer.


We hope that this short list will help you in your everyday struggle to keep your clothes looking fresh and vibrant. To check out everything we have to offer in scrubwear and accessories, please visit the Blue Sky Co. website.
