Our Tips For Maintaining Colorful Scrubs

Posted by

The scrubs we sell at Blue Sky Co. is known for its vibrant colors and resistance to fading, but that doesn’t mean it won’t lose some of its color over time, if not properly cared for. One day you may pull your scrubs out of the dryer and find them to be grey when they used to be blue! To avoid this, we’re going to share some helpful tips about how you can keep the gorgeous color in your scrubs. Following these tips will help your scrubs stay vibrant and colorful for years to come.

Press Drying Scrubs

The biggest factor in your scrubs fading over time is the use of a machine dryer. To keep some color in your scrubs, try press drying them! You may not have used a hot iron in years (or ever!) but go ahead and give it a try! You’ll be pleased with how vibrant your scrubs will be, and they’ll be crisp, warm and wrinkle-free when you put them on.

Avoid Fabric Softeners

Fabric softeners can actually cause your scrub clothes to fade quicker! If you’ve been using fabric softeners to avoid static when removing your clothes from the dryer, try using static-relieving balls instead!

Try Line Drying

We’ve saved the best for last, since the extra effort it takes to line dry your scrubs is actually well worth it, and it's probably the most effective option for keeping your scrubs from fading. As long as you can find the time it takes to hang up a clothesline near a window or out in the sun, line-drying will keep your scrubs looking great and feeling crisp and professional!

We’re also proud to provide you with the most luxurious, comfortable and practical scrubs available, made only of the finest fabrics!
