At American Discount Uniform we remind all of our customers to please
always read and follow the manufacturer washing instructions labeled
on each garment. Nursing and medical uniforms are engineered for the
medical environment and use fabrics that offer a combination of durability,
style, color and comfortable wear ability.
Like any work wear, nursing uniforms are a part of your professional
attire and will require daily cleaning, therefore proper care should
be used in washing your uniform to extend the life of the garment
as well as keeping it looking new, crisp and professional.
From our years of experience in selling nursing uniforms, we have
become very aware of the need for proper washing care of the uniforms.
As a part of our service to our customers we have developed some simple
washing instruction that will help you enjoy and maintain the look
and feel of your nursing uniform.
A few special notes:
Dark Garments: Always wash before wearing as the
color might bleed. Wash in cold or warm water only never wash color
uniforms in HOT water.
Garments : It is a common misconception to bleach whites.
DO NOT bleach white garments with chlorine-based
bleaches. White garments are actually dyed “white” and
by bleaching you are actually taking out the color – often “yellowing”
the garments. Rather use a non-chlorine bleach as recommended by the
manufacturer. Bleach is also tough on the actual fabric fiber and
can reduce the life of the garment.
A Secret About Ironing & Pressing : Many times
you can get the same appearance of ironing and pressing by just getting
your timing down right. If you take your nursing uniform or medical
uniform (if it's fabric is a 65/35 poplin blend) right out of the
dryer when it's still hot and hang it on a hanger it won't wrinkle
and will save you the time to iron it. Give it a try!
These simple washing instructions will help you to maintain a clean
and comfortable nursing uniform for a long time. Just another advantage
and service American Discount Uniform offers its customers.
