Washing Your Nursing Scrubs Properly
Medical scrubs are designed in such a way that they provide comfort and cleanliness while in the hospital. When you spend time in the hospital taking care of sick patients, hygiene is absolutely essential. This is the reason why nursing staff are required to wear scrubs at all times when working in the hospital.
While scrubs are designed to keep clean as much as possible, you still need to clean your uniform on a regular basis so it doesn't spread germs and bacteria that could cause potential harm. If you want to keep your nursing scrubs as clean and hygienic as possible, follow these steps and you'll have no problem with your medical uniform.
Avoid wearing your uniform outside of the hospital. Although it may be tempting to walk out of hospital wearing your scrubs, it's never the most hygienic thing to do. In order to keep your uniform as clean as possible, get a bag and use it only for carrying your scrubs. Take them to the hospital in the bag and make sure you change your clothes and put them back into the bag before leaving the hospital. Doing this will ensure that the least possible amount of bacteria and germs are spread onto your nursing uniform.
Finally, when you actually wash your scrubs, separate them from your casual clothing that you wear outside of the hospital. Even though you're washing all of the clothes, it's important not to mix your work clothes and your other clothes together, as germs will spread to and from the different items of clothing.
If you stick to these few simple rules, you'll be well on your way to having a lovely, clean uniform that is free from any risk of bringing harmful particles and bacteria into the hospital.
