Your Favorite Scrub Accessories Will Last Longer With These Tips
Posted by Amy on 20th Feb 2022
It's important to keep your scrubs in great condition as a medical professional, especially if you wear them to work almost every day. There’s no shortage of advice out there, including from us here at Blue Sky Scrubs, about the best practices to maintain your scrubs. But what about your favorite scrub accessories? Let’s talk about how you can help keep scrub hats, compression socks and scarves in excellent condition. And if you’ve never purchased or seen Blue Sky’s accessories before, this is a great chance to become familiar with what we offer.
Proper Scrub Cap Care
Next up is something extremely practical and necessary in some situations; your scrub hats. You may need to wear a scrub hat at certain times on the job, or maybe you just prefer the way it looks. We also offer disposable scrub hats, but if you don’t want to be constantly throwing away and putting on new scrub caps, then our washable ones are the way to go. Since all of our scrubs are made with 100% cotton, they can easily go through a washing machine. Just make sure to use cold water and tumble dry on low heat. But for the absolute best outcome, we suggest washing scrub hats by hand in cold water and letting them air dry.
Cleaning Compression Socks
Do your feet get cold at work? Even with all the moving around, some hospitals are just too chilly and there's no avoiding it. Our compression socks are perfect for keeping your feet warm. For the best care, machine or hand wash cold. Don’t use a machine dryer, as the elasticity of the compression socks will be compromised. Hang them up or lay them flat to allow them to dry.
What To Do WIth Scarves
Our scarves are another great way to beat the cold, and they come in all kinds of gorgeous colors and patterns! For the best care, machine wash on a cold, gentle cycle or hand wash with cold water and mild soap. Tumble dry your scarves on low heat for the best outcome.
