What To Do When your Scrubs Keep Losing Their Color
Posted by Amy on 13th Aug 2022
We’ve heard it over and over again; you get a new pair of scrubs and love the vibrant color, but over time after several trips through the washer and dryer, your scrubs are faded and dull. Here at Blue Sky Scrubs, we want you to look and feel your very best every day you go into work. That’s why we have some important advice for you on how to make your scrubs last longer.
Start With High Quality
The first thing to consider is the quality of your scrubs. Low quality scrubs are more likely to suffer from fading in the washer and dryer. If you start with luxurious scrubs made from high quality fabrics, like those we have here at Blue Sky, they’re more likely to maintain their color.
Avoid Machine Drying
The machine dryer simply isn’t the best way to treat scrubs, and many clothes for that matter. After just a few times in the dryer, your scrub top or scrub pants may fade in color and be damaged by the heat. 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.
A Better Drying Method
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.
At Blue Sky Scrubs, we always try to provide not only the best scrubs 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!
