Do You Wear a Lab Coat To Work? Here's Some Important Advice

Posted by

Lab coats are a professional, stylish choice for any medical professional, and they can help you stay comfortable at work too. But just like any other clothes, lab coats don’t last forever. So how will you know when it’s time to throw out that old lab coat and get yourself a new one? Here’s some important advice on when it's time to get your lab coat replaced.

Watch For Tearing

The first thing you’ll want to keep an eye out for is any obvious tearing, even small tears. After excessive daily use, the seams can rip and tear open easily, and if that happens, you’ll probably want to think about replacing your lab coat soon! If you want to maintain a professional appearance in the workplace, having a nice, intact lab coat is a good idea.

Check For Stains

Make sure you frequently check your lab coat for stains. One especially common type of stain on lab coats is yellow armpit stains that appear over time due to sweating through the white coat. If you have stains like this on your lab coat, and they no longer come out with cleaning, it’s time to dump that old coat and get yourself a fresh, clean lab coat!

How About Size?

If you find yourself feeling like your scrub top has gotten too small or too big for you, that’s another sign that you need a new one. Move around while looking in the mirror as well, pay attention to how you look and how you feel as you move in the coat. If it isn’t comfortable or flattering, why keep it? Machine drying can cause your coat to shrink, and over time it might be too small for you, so don’t feel like you have to try squeezing into an ill-fitting coat.

If you’re dealing with any of these problems in your lab coat, it's time for a new one! Visit the Blue Sky Scrubs website to have a look at our professional, luxurious lab coats.
