Tired of Scrubs Fading After You Dry Them? Here's a Better Way

Posted by

It's happened to almost everybody at some point; you put your beautiful, vibrant Scrubs clothes in the dryer after washing them, and when they come out, the color has faded. It can be extremely disappointing, especially when it happens to your scrubs when you’re about to wear them to work. Here is some advice you can follow to avoid this, and to keep your scrubs vibrant and colorful, allowing you to look great in your scrubs every day.

Problems With The Dryer

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 a machine dryer.

Try Line Drying Instead

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 scrubs in great condition.
