What's The Most Effective Way To Fight Stains On Scrubs?

Posted by

If you work in the medical industry, odds are your job is pretty hectic. You won't always be able to stop slip-ups and accidents from occuring. At some point or another while you’re working, you’re bound to end up with stains on your scrubs. At Blue Sky Co. we do our very best to help you look good at work, and that includes giving you advice on how to combat stains on your scrubs. Here’s our professional advice on keeping your scrubs as fresh as possible.

Hydrogen Peroxide

Believe it or not, the quickest and easiest way of dealing with those pesky stains on your scrubs is hydrogen peroxide. Usually accessible in a medical environment, hydrogen peroxide is very effective at dealing with a mess on your scrubs before it sets in and becomes a more permanent stain, especially if its blood. Just pour the peroxide on the stain, let it sit there for a while, and then rinse it off with some water. It works best if you use cool water. Once you do that, the stain should come right out!

Stain Stick

Another good idea is, when you’re going to work, bring a stain stick with you. You should be able to fit one in your pocket, ready to be used any time there's a spill on your scrubs. If you know you’re clumsy and prone to spills, you’ll be glad you had a stain stick on you.

Bring Backup Scrubs

This last bit of advice is useful if you’re dealing with a particularly big mess: bring a pair of backup scrubs to work! With backup scrubs on hand, you can immediately take off your stained scrubs and change into your backup, so that you can rinse your stained scrubs at work, and then put them in a back or a locker and give them a full wash once you get home.

We hope our advice has been helpful when it comes to keeping your scrubs stain-free. To check our our scrubs, lab coats or other items, or to read helpful blogs like this one, please visit the Blue Sky Scrubs website.
