How To Fold Scrubs

Let's be real, after a long exhausting shift in healthcare, the last thing you want to do is wrestle with your scrubs, trying to tame the wrinkles and transform a crumpled mess into something presentable.

Wrinkles? No problem! KNYA + simple folding tips = Your key to wrinkles-free wardrobe.

Embrace the Flat Lay

Let's be honest, time is precious in the healthcare field. Every minute saved folding scrubs is a minute gained for rest, relaxation, or stolen moments with loved ones. The key to efficiency lies in developing a routine. The first step to wrinkle-free bliss is the "flat lay." Lay your scrubs flat on a clean surface, smoothing out any wrinkles as you go. This ensures a clean canvas for the folding process. 

The Art of the Top

  • The Half Fold: Start with the top buttoned up. Fold one side of the top inwards, aligning the shoulder seam with the center. Repeat with the other side, creating a clean stack in the center.
  • The File Fold: For a more compact option, fold the sleeves inwards towards the center. Then, fold the bottom of the top upwards, meeting the base of the neckline. This creates a neat rectangle, perfect for stacking or storing.
  • The Hanging Hero: If you prefer hanging your scrubs, fold the top as in option 1, then hang it by the shoulder seam using a sturdy hanger. This minimizes shoulder creases and keeps your top looking fresh.

Capturing the Bottoms

  • The Classic Fold: Lay your pants flat, aligning the seams. Fold one leg over the other, creating a straight line down the center. This is a simple and space-saving option.
  • The Inverted Fold: Fold one leg inwards, aligning the crease with the center seam. Repeat with the other leg, creating a "V" shape at the top. This helps maintain the shape of the leg opening.
  • The Hanging Hack: For pants with drawstring waistbands, simply hang them by the drawstring knot. This is a quick and easy solution, especially for delicate fabrics.

Knya: Your Perfect Fit!

Here's where things get interesting! Knya Ecoflex scrubs are renowned for their superior wrinkle-resistant fabric. This means you can often get away with a simple "hang and go" approach.

  • Use a sturdy hanger with wide shoulders.
  • Button or zip up the shirt completely.
  • Fold the pants in half lengthwise, aligning the seams. (Optional, depending on the desired level of compactness)
  • Hang the shirt and pants on the hanger separately, ensuring minimal wrinkles.

Bonus Tip: Invest in a garment steamer. A quick steam can work wonders on stubborn wrinkles, especially when you're short on time.

Beyond the Fold: Pro Tips for Lasting Freshness!

Folding is just one piece of the puzzle. Here are some additional tips to keep your Knya scrubs looking their best:

  • Wash your scrubs in cold water on a gentle cycle.
  • Hang your scrubs to dry whenever possible. Avoid high heat, which can damage the fabric and increase wrinkles.
  • Iron your scrubs on a low heat setting, if necessary. Use a pressing cloth to avoid scorching the fabric.
  • Store your scrubs in a cool, dry place. Avoid wet or cramped areas, since these could lead to wrinkle and mildew growth.

Folding your scrubs isn't just about saving time and space, it's about showing respect for the uniform you wear and the incredible work you do. Wrinkles are temporary, your impact is lasting. Go forth, conquer them, and keep making a difference!
