Line Drying Scrubs VS Machine Drying

Posted by

We understand that many people are way too busy for some everyday activities like doing laundry. You’re either rushing to work, rushing home, or trying to get some well deserved rest. But hear us out, because once you know how beneficial it can be to properly clean and line dry your scrubwear, you just might have to make the time for it.

Why Should You Line Dry Scrubs?

Unfortunately, as it is with many different kinds of clothing and material, the dryer isn’t the best for your scrubs. After just a few times in the dryer, your scrub top or scrub pants may fade in color and be damaged by the heat. Abrasion may also occur when clothes rub against each other in the dryer, breaking threads and fading colors even more. If you love the way your Blue Sky scrubs look, you probably want to keep them looking that way. There’s got to be a better way to dry them than just machine dryer.

Even though it may seem like a lot more work, line drying is very simple and easy once you get the hang of it. You’ve probably seen the process before; just hang a rope up in a secluded room somewhere, or outside in a backyard or on a balcony, and pin your clothes up on the rope to let the circulating air and sunlight do all the rest of the work! When you think about it, it really isn’t much work, and you’ll keep all your scrubwear in great condition.


At Blue Sky Co., we always try to provide not only the best scrubwear that you can find, but also the right information to help you take great care of your new scrubs. So once you bought your brand new, super comfy set of Blue Sky scrubs, remember to line dry and not use the dryer!
