The proper care is necessary to maintain scrubs' quality and durability.
Here are some product care guidelines for medical scrubs.
- Wash in cold water
Medical scrubs should be washed in cold water to avoid shrinkage and color fading. Use a mild detergent and avoid using fabric softeners or bleach, as they can damage the fabric.
- Separate by color
Sort your medical scrubs by color and wash them separately. Dark colors should be washed together to prevent bleeding, while light colors should be washed separately to avoid discoloration.
- Avoid overloading the machine
Overloading the washing machine can damage the fabric and affect the quality of the garment. It is best to wash medical scrubs in small loads.
- Dry on low heat
Tumble dry your medical scrubs on low heat or hang them to air dry. Avoid using high heat, as it can damage the fabric and cause shrinkage.
- Iron on low heat
If necessary, iron your medical scrubs on low heat to remove wrinkles. Avoid using high heat, as it can damage the fabric too.
- Store properly
Store your medical scrubs in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Avoid hanging them in direct sunlight or damp areas, as it can cause discoloration and mildew.
