How To Keep Your Scrubs Colorful For Longer

Posted by

After you purchase a brand new set of scrubs and try them on for the first time, one of your first thoughts will probably be about how long they’ll last. If that isn’t one of your first thoughts, it should be! You do want to get your money’s worth out of the scrubs, after all. Fortunately, our fabrics are made to last. Not only that, but we also want to give you all the knowledge you’ll need to help your scrubs last even longer to help you get the most out of each pair. Here are four basic tips to help your scrub fabrics last longer.

Always Pre-Wash

It's very important to pre-wash your scrubs before you wear them to work. Not only will this sanitize them, but it’ll also help their colors to set in and not fade as quickly over time. Make sure you add extra water to the load to give your scrubs plenty of room!

Try Line Drying

It may sound like an old practice, but line drying is incredibly good for your scrubs. The dryer can do a lot of damage to your scrub fabrics over time. It can cause abrasion, fading, rips, tear and shrinkage. Keep your scrubs away from the dryer and try line drying instead!

Spot Treating

Nothing ruins a great set of scrubs like an accident or spill. Keep a stain stick in your locker for when you’re on the go, and note that hydrogen peroxide best removes blood stains. Spot treating stains will help them to come out when you wash your scrubs after work!

Get The Right Scrubs


As always, it helps to start with quality scrubwear in the first place. Scrubs that won’t shrink, are durable, and have vibrant colors and patterns. You can find yourself scrubs like that today if you visit the Blue Sky Co. website!
