When Should You Replace Your Old Lab Coat, And How Can Blue Sky Help?

Posted by

A comfortable, professional-looking lab coat is an essential part of any womens medical scrubs wardrobe. But once you’ve had them for several years, they can begin to wear out, just like any other clothes. So how will you know when its time to throw out that old lab coat and get yourself a new one? Well, in today’s blog we’ve got three signs for you to look out for to answer that question.

Have You Noticed Tearing?

First of all, check out for signs of wear and tear on your lab coat, like torn seams. After excessive daily use the seams can rips 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 scrubs appearance in the workplace, having a nice, intact lab coat is a good idea.

Have You Noticed Stains?

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, its time to dump that old coat and get yourself a fresh, clean lab coat.

Is It The Right 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, 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 or even womens surgical caps, check out ours! Just visit the Blue Sky Scrubs website.
