Scrub preferences?

  1. I was curious about what fabric you prefer your scrubs - 100% cotton or 65% polyester/35% cotton? Also, what is your pocket preference?

    Some of mine are 50/50 poly/cotton, but most of my scrubs are blends of some percentage. I have a few 100% cotton, but I don't wear them much because I never get around to ironing them. The blends usually don't wrinkle as long as I take them out of the dryer as soon as it stops tumbling and put them on hangers. For those minor wrinkles, like from stuff getting squashed in the closet, I use Downey wrinkle releaser. Time-efficiency, you know...

    I like the blends better because of the I-hate-to-iron thing. Also, I'm really liking the thigh pockets now!

    I don't really care what it's made of as long as it's cool looking.

    My favorite scrubs are the hospital, er, borrowed ones. They've been washed a thousand times and are soft and broken in. There's nothing I hate more than stiff scrubs.

    I prefer cotton/poly blend pants and 100% cotton tops. I don't like shirts with pockets at the bottom, I only like the breast pocket.

    I like the blend scrubs because of the obvious not having to iron them but I've had some of the 100% cotton ones and if you pack on a few pounds they get too tight (of course I blame it on the dryer ) but the best scrubs I've found unfortunately the most expensive are the Hemp ones.

    Thanks everyone! I've decided to put my nimble hands to use and maybe try to make some spending money while I pursue my degree.
