What to Do For Fading Fabrics

Posted by

You love your scrubs for their vibrant colors. We don’t blame you! That’s why we make them in such a wide variety of colors; we simply can’t get enough. But how do you keep these colors true? Today we’ll discuss fading fabrics and how to prevent discoloration. We all know our scrubs start to look less professional once they’re faded. So here’s what we can do to slow the process down:

Pre-Wash Your Scrubs

It’s always helpful to pre-wash your scrubs after purchasing them! This helps the colors to set in and does wonders when it comes to, well, keeping them that way. Use extra water when you’re doing this, to give your scrubs more space to move around. You can also add ½ C of white vinegar to the load for sanitization.

Line Dry Your Scrubs

Instead of tossing your scrubs into the dryer, try line drying them, instead! Unfortunately, the heat from a dryer is sometimes too much for those beautiful colors, and causes them to fade. A clothesline can be a miracle for your scrubwear. You can even set one up on the balcony if you live in an apartment building!

Only Wear Your Scrubs at Work

It also helps to reserve your medical scrubs for work, only. We know it can be tempting to wear them while lounging on your time off, but obviously the less you use your scrubs, the longer their colors will stay vibrant and bright. So give it a shot: only wear your scrubs at work, and nowhere else!
