Wrinkle Free Scrubs

Keep Your Scrubs Wrinkle-Free, No Iron Needed

Dirty little secret: I have a really bad laundry habit. Sometimes, when I’m feeling particularly lazy, once I take my clothes out of the dryer I will dump them all in a pile on my bed with the intention to fold and put them away later…only to come back to my bedroom ready to go to sleep and find a giant pile of clothes still on my bed, unfolded. And instead of folding my laundry bleary-eyed and tired, I’ll usually just shove them onto the floor to make room for my sleepy self.

I know I can’t be the only one guilty of doing this! But it really is a bad habit, because the clothes that end up on my floor usually end up getting stepped on or mixed in with dirty clothes. Meaning I end up having to rewash the clothes that I already put through the laundry! It’s a waste of time and resources.

What I should be doing – and everyone else who *sometimes* does this – is just take the time to fold my laundry as soon as it’s out of the dryer, while it’s still a little warm.

Why?

When your laundry just sits in a heap on the bed, even if just for an hour or two, it’s more than likely that it will get wrinkled. Then comes the ironing, another pain in the butt and a huge time-eater.

For medical professionals who are short on time and high on responsibilities, you may not always have time to fold your laundry right as soon as it’s done. If this is the case for you, your best option is to find a quality pair of low-maintenance scrubs that are made in a wrinkle free fabric, like these ones.

When you are in a rush and your laundry comes out of the dryer, just take a minute to sort out your scrubs from the rest and put them on a hanger or lay them out flat. Voila! you have wrinkle-free scrubs that don’t require any ironing, saving you some valuable time and making your pre-work routine a little easier.

Softest Scrubs Ever

Here’s Why Medelita Physician Scrubs Are Softer Than Any Other Brand

If you’ve been following this blog, you know we have a strong preference for Medelita products. What can we say? They really are the best in terms of fit and quality. They last far longer than any other scrubs or lab coats, and they’re easy to take care of because of the wrinkle release and stain release technology thats imbued in the fabric.

One of the many reasons we prefer Medelita scrubs is not about style or fit: it’s because they are quite literally the softest scrubs I have ever had my hands on. They are so comfortable that I have even worn them to bed on occasion, and I would even consider wearing them on a long-distance flight.

I recently asked Medelita’s chief of operations why their scrubs are so soft, and he gave me the inside scoop. Apparently, the finish of the scrub fabric on the inside is slightly different than the outside: this is because the fabric is brushed.

What does brushed fabric mean? According to TextileGlossary.com, brushing is:

A finishing process for woven or knit fabrics in which brushes or other abrading elements are used to raise a nap (a fuzzy or downy surface). Brushed fabrics have a soft, slightly weathered, broken-in feel.

You know that favorite old t-shirt that you have, that has become so soft over years of wear that it’s become the most soft and comfortable thing you own? It’s basically the same thing, but for scrubs.

You can’t wear your favorite old t-shirt to work…but you can wear your Medelita scrubs!

Student Scrubs

Medical Students often compare well known brands like Grey’s Anatomy and ICU Scrubs by Barco with Jockey, Landau and Medelita. When it comes to fabric quality, performance, durability and perfect fit, – Medelita is a clear winner. If you are looking for bigger color variety and style selections, Grey’s Anatomy is probably your best bet. It’s important to ask yourself what your expectations are and what is the long term value of the product you are buying. Do you want to buy cheaper student scrubs that will fade away and start pilling after several washes, or do you want a designer style scrub from quality material that will look brand new even after hundreds of washes ? It’s always a good idea to do a little research, look at customer satisfaction and unsolicited reviews before deciding on a perfect scrub set for students.

Here are a few reviews of our favorite company Medelita:

  • “So many people have already commented to me on how professional and nice my scrubs look. And the value is really there. I can buy 3-4 sets of regular scrubs that hold up only a few washes, or I can buy one pair of Medelita scrubs that really last.” – Emily, Medical Student
  • “I am such a fan, and while new to your product, I can say I’ve never had a better fitting or better wearing set of scrubs. I feel more efficient and prepared when the only thought I give to my scrubs is how great they are! No more gaps between pants and top, no baggy neck and arm holes – just freedom. So keep up the great work.” – Alice, NA
