3 Signs You Need a New Scrubs Lab Coat

Posted by

There are few things as essential to your medical scrub wardrobe as a professional, stylish scrubs lab coat. But once you’ve had them for several years, they can begin to wear out, just like any other clothing. So how will you know when it's time to throw out that old lab coat and get yourself a new one? Well, on today’s blog we’ve got three signs for you to look out for to answer that question.

Stains

First of all, Make sure you frequently check your lab coat for stains. One especially common type of stain on lab coats is yellow armpit stains that appear over time due to sweating through the white coat. If you have stains like this on your lab coat, and they no longer come out with cleaning, it's time to dump that old coat and get yourself a fresh, clean lab coat!

Tearing

Check out for signs of wear and tear on your lab coat, like torn seams. After excessive daily use the seams can rip and tear open easily, and if that happens, you’ll probably want to think about replacing your lab coat soon! If you want to maintain a professional appearance in the workplace, having a nice, intact lab coat is a good idea.

Size

If you put on your lab coat in front of a mirror and think “this thing is too small” or “this thing is too baggy”, you might want to consider getting a new one. Move around while looking in the mirror as well, pay attention to how you look and how you feel as you move in the coat. If it isn’t comfortable or flattering scrubs, why keep it? And if you’ve had it for a long time, it might have even shrunk in the dryer. Either way, don’t hold on to a lab coat that doesn’t fit right.

We hope the advice in this blog helped. If you’re looking for a new lab coat, check out ours! Just visit the Blue Sky Scrubs website.
