Getting new scrubs is exciting! New styles, colors, and they feel new—if that’s a real feeling for clothing to have. Before you start wearing them and washing them with your other clothing follow these tips to keep your scrubs looking better for longer:
- For the darker colors, put them through the wash 1-3 times before wearing to avoid color transfer to other articles of clothing.
- Use low heat on the dryer for 30-60 minutes or hang dry
- Avoid fabric softener with scrubs- many scrubs have a unique weaving pattern with the fabric to allow it to breathe. Fabric softener can sometimes cling on to the fabric more easily and leave the scrubs feeling hard and not work as effectively as it should
