Here's What You Can Do About Fading Medical Scrubs

When you buy new clothes, you probably expect that their vibrant colors won’t last forever. But that doesn’t make it any less disappointing when it happens, especially with medical scrubs that you need to wear to work.

But with the right method of drying your scrubs, fading can be largely avoided! Today, we here at Blue Sky have decided to share a list of helpful tips to avoid letting your clothes fade. If you follow these carefully, your medical scrubs will stay vibrant and colorful for a lot longer!

Stop Using Fabric Softeners

There’s one thing about fabric softeners that the manufacturers don’t want you to know; they can actually cause your clothes, including scrubs, to fade in color more quickly. If you’ve been using fabric softeners to avoid static when removing your clothes from the dryer, try using static-relieving balls instead!

Dry The Right Way

When it comes to what causes your clothes to fade, the machine dryer itself is the biggest culprit. To keep some color in your scrubs, try press drying them! You may not have used a hot iron in years (or ever!) but go ahead and give it a try! You’ll be pleased with how vibrant your scrubs will be, and they’ll be crisp, warm and wrinkle-free when you put them on.

The last tip we’ll give you for keeping your scrubs bright and colorful is what we consider the very best drying method there is; line drying! As long as you can find the time it takes to hang up a clothesline near a window or out in the sun, line-drying will keep your scrubs looking great and feeling crisp and professional!
