The Pros and Cons of Line Drying Your Scrubs

The Pros and Cons of Line Drying Your Scrubs

When you work in a hospital or other medical facility, you live a pretty busy lifestyle, so you probably don’t have a lot of spare time for time-consuming activities. But at the same time, you want to make sure you take great care of your scrubs so that you show up to work in vibrant, professional attire. So that begs the question: is line drying your scrubs worth it?


As we said before, as a worker in the medical industry you don’t always have time for activities that would take a while, like line drying. I mean, where do you even start? You may have never set up a clothesline before! You would have to hang a rope up in a room, preferably near a window or outside where the sunlight can reach, like a backyard or a balcony, and then you’ll have to hang your clothes on it and wait as the circulating air and the sunlight dries your clothes for you. The process can take a while, and if you’re in a rush it would be a lot easier to just throw your clothes in the dryer and be done with it.


But even with all of that in mind, there are some clear benefits to going through the process of line drying. When you throw your scrubs in the dryer, even after just a few times, they could start to lose their color! Line drying will help keep your clothes vibrant and colorful for much longer, so it might save you money from having to buy new scrubs, and it even saves on your energy bill since you won’t be using the dryer so much! If you start line drying your scrubs, you might realize that the little bit of extra work is nothing compared to the benefits it brings.
