3 Important Tips For Keeping Color In Your Scrubs

Posted by

It’s a normal thing when you buy new clothes to expect that over time, colors will fade more and more after your clothing has been through the wash and dry process, but that doesn’t make it any less disappointing when you pull something out of the dryer that used to be vibrant and colorful, only to see that it's now grey and dull. That’s why in today's blog, we’ve decided to give you a list of helpful tips to help avoid your clothes fading. If you follow these tips carefully, your medical scrubs will stay vibrant and colorful for a whole lot longer! It helps of course, if you start off with high quality scrubs. To see ours, just visit the Blue Sky Co. website.

Pressing Your Scrubs

The biggest factor in your scrubwear 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, 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 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 its 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, line-drying will keep your scrubs looking great and feeling crisp and professional!


We hope these tips have been helpful! Come check out the Blue Sky Co. website to see our full collection of scrubwear and accessories!
