Blue Sky Tips To Keep Your Scrubs Colorful For Years

Posted by

When you put in an order for scrubs, lab coats, scrub caps or any other clothing or accessories from Blue Sky, you know you’re getting the most comfortable, longest lasting scrubwear that you’ll ever find. But even with the best of the best, the colors may fade over time, especially after several trips through the washer and dryer, so we’ve come up with a list of tips to help keep your scrubwear colorful for much longer! If you follow these tips closely, you could add years to the color of your favorite scrubs!

Pre-Washing

To keep your scrubwear in good condition for a longer period of time, the very first thing you should do when you get anything new is pre-wash it. Throw them in the washer with one or two cups of white cleaning vinegar and fill the tub full with plenty of water.

Avoiding The Dryer

Machine dryers have really spoiled us, haven’t they? You’ve probably gotten used to the speed and convenience of just throwing your clothes in the dryer and letting the machine do all the work, but it comes with a sacrifice. Machine-drying your clothes can cause discoloration and fading much more quickly due to heat and abrasion from clothes rubbing together. We recommend using alternative methods of drying, like line drying.

Easy Line Drying

Despite what you may think, line drying can be really easy! All you need is an area with enough space to hang the clothesline up. Line drying will allow your clothes to dry evenly without ever fading in color!


We hope that these tips have been helpful, and that you get to add years of life to your colorful, vibrant Blue Sky scrubwear. To view our whole collection of super comfy scrubwear and accessories, just visit the Blue Sky Co. website.
