What To Do When Your Scrubs Coat Shows These Signs Of Wear And Tear

Scrub coats add a professional look to any scrub outfit, making them highly valued by medical professionals. But even the highest quality scrub coats show signs of wear and tear over time. Let’s talk about three categories of issues you’ll probably run into when you’ve had a lab coat for a long time, and what you can do about them.

Scrubs Jacket Spills and Stains

All clothes, from regular t-shirts to the highest quality scrubs and scrub coats, are bound to have things spilled on them and get stains at some point. One especially common type of stain on stretch scrub 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 find a new stylish, high quality scrubs coat for yourself, like the ones we carry here at Blue Sky Scrubs.

Scrubs Jackets Punctures or Tearing

Any holes or tearing at the seams can ruin the professional, well-kept appearance that a lab coat provides. 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, you need your scrubs coat in good shape.

Scrubs Jacket Too Baggy or Too Small?

After years of wearing the same scrubs coat, it may just not fit you the same anymore. It could be that you’ve gained or lost weight since you bought it, or it might have even shrunk in the dryer. Either way, you don’t want to wear an ill-fitting scrubs coat. 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, you shouldn’t feel the need to hold onto it.
