Essential Threads | Care Instructions

Our customers report that one of the best qualities of Essential Threads is their wash-and-wear capability.  Busy professionals can count on our clothing to look fantastic right out of the dryer without any additional care if you follow these instructions:

  • Wash in cold water with standard detergent. Some washers have a quick wash cycle and that works well.
  • Some customers report detergent residue after a wash and dry.  The scrubs are fluid-resistant, so if you are using a generous amount of detergent it may puddle and allow residue to settle.  A second rinse (if your washer has that setting) can help eliminate that problem as well. We don't recommend using a fabric softener.
  • Dry on delicate cycle and remove garments immediately to reduce wrinkling. Dryer sheets may be used to prevent static.

Additionally, given their antimicrobial qualities, our scrubs may not need washed after a short wear--that choice is up to you!
