What To Do When Your Scrubs Lose Their Color In The Dryer

We hear the same story from medical professionals far too often; you buy a great pair of scrubs, but after only a couple times through the washer and dryer, they’ve almost completely faded and lost all color. Here at Blue Sky Scrubs, We have some important tips on how you can avoid your scrubs fading in the future.

Why Do Scrubs Fade?

Unfortunately, as it is with many different kinds of clothing and material, the dryer isn’t the best for your scrubs. After just a few times in the dryer, your scrub top or scrub pants may fade in color and be damaged by the heat. Abrasion may also occur when clothes rub against each other in the dryer, breaking threads and fading colors even more. 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.

Should You Try Line Drying?

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.
