To ensure that your medical scrubs last for a long time, it is important to wash them properly. Here are some steps to follow:

  1. Check the care label: Before washing your scrubs, check the care label for any specific instructions, such as the recommended water temperature or detergent type.
  2. Sort your scrubs: Sort your scrubs by color and type of fabric to avoid any color bleeding or shrinkage.
  3. Use a gentle detergent: Choose a mild detergent specifically designed for delicate fabrics, or one that is free of bleach and harsh chemicals.
  4. Use the right water temperature: For most scrubs, cold water is recommended to prevent shrinking and fading. However, if your scrubs are heavily soiled, you may need to use warm water.
  5. Avoid overloading the washing machine: Overloading the washing machine can cause your scrubs to rub against each other, leading to pilling and premature wear.
  6. Avoid using fabric softeners: Fabric softeners can leave a residue on your scrubs that can attract dirt and bacteria, and may also cause the fabric to break down more quickly.
  7. Tumble dry on low heat: If the care label allows, tumble dry your scrubs on a low heat setting to prevent shrinkage. Avoid over-drying, as this can also cause shrinkage.
  8. Iron if necessary: If your scrubs require ironing, use a warm iron and avoid ironing any areas with decorations, such as logos or embroidery.

By following these steps, you can keep your medical scrubs looking and feeling great, even after multiple washes.
