Most hospital gear will start to lose color over time, including medical scrubs. If you picked out a pair of scrubs because they were vibrant and colorful, then you may find yourself disappointed when those gorgeous colors fade. But with the right method of drying your scrubs, fading can be largely avoided! Today, we here at Blue Sky Scrubs have decided to share a list of helpful tips to avoid letting your clothes fade. If you follow these tips, your medical scrubs will stay vibrant and colorful for a lot longer! It helps to start off with high quality, modern and luxurious scrubs, like what we have available on the Blue Sky Scrubs website.
Machine Dryer or Press Drying?
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.
What About Fabric Softeners?
There’s one thing about fabric softeners that the manufacturers don’t want you to know; they can actually cause your clothes, includgin 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!
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!
