Pro Scrub Care Tips: Keeping Scrubs Colorful

When you buy new clothes, you may simply expect that they’ll eventually fade and lose much of their original color. If you picked out a pair of scrubs because they were bright and colorful, then you may find yourself disappointed when that does happen, even if you expected it. But with the right method of drying your scrubs, fading can be largely avoided! Recently on the Blue Sky Scrubs blog we’ve tackled a few topics of important care tips for your medical outfit. Today, let’s talk about how to keep your colorful scrubs from fading.

Should You Use 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!

Better Ways To Dry Scrubs

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!
