3 Powerful Methods For Keeping Your Scrubs Colorful

Posted by

When you purchase scrubs, lab coats, vests or any accessories from Blue Sky Co., they’ll arrive looking spectacularly colorful, vibrant and new. But, how can you keep them this way forever? Most clothes fade over time with wear and washing, so we’ve put together a few essential tips for you to keep your new Blue Sky scrubs in great condition and looking brand new.

Pre-Wash All Scrubs

The first thing you should do when you brand new scrubs arrive is pre-wash them. This will help them stay in good condition. Before wearing them at all, throw them in the washer with one to two cups of white cleaning vinegar and fill the tub full with plenty of water.

Don’t Use Dryer

One important thing to remember when trying to keep your scrubs from losing their color is to avoid using the dryer completely. While the dryer may be convenient to use, the heat can cause fading and discoloration very quickly, and the abrasion of the scrubs rubbing together can cause further fading and discoloration. For the best results, try some alternative methods of drying.

Line Drying

You may think line drying is outdated or too difficult or inconvenient of a method, but it’s easier than you think! All you need is a good area to create a clothesline, like a balcony or yard with enough room to hang clothes up. If these aren’t an option, you can even drape the clothing over your furniture like chairs and couches, as long as you make sure to flip the clothing so that it dries evenly.

We hope that these tips have been helpful, and we believe that when you try them out you’ll see the difference in how bright and vibrant our scrubs will be for a long time to come!
