Caring for your Chinese collar scrubs is an important task.
You cannot risk your scrubs getting dirty, because once the stain gets into the fabric material, it’ll get contaminated.

Why is it important to care for your scrubs?
Because if you leave your scrubs unattended it’ll be home to thousands of viruses and bacteria. Your scrubs can get easily contaminated in the hospital, that’s why it is very important to care for them.
Caring for your Chinese collar scrubs is the same as caring for your traditional scrubs. Both of these scrubs are made from the same material, that is polyester and viscose which makes them easy to wash, durable, breathable and comfortable.
Here’s how you can start caring for it:

Remove blood & vomit stains:
The first and foremost thing you should do when taking care of your Chinese medical scrub is take care of the stains.
Vomit and blood have proteins in them. Once the protein starts getting deeper into the fabric material it can be ugly, it’ll be hard to remove, and it can contaminate your scrub.
Make sure you use a spoon, or knife that you can use to remove stains, after you’re done removing the stains, start washing your scrubs.
Make sure you wash your scrubs in hot water. As hot water can push the stain out of the fabric and also kill the bacteria/viruses of the stain.
Turn scrubs inside out when washing:

Dry the scrub inside out:
When drying the scrubs, it is also important to dry them inside out. Drying your scrub directly in the sun can burn the fabric and cause the quality of the fabric to deteriorate.
