WHO WILL WIN THE BATTLE FOR YOUR BUSINESS?

ONLINE / IN STORE: WHO WILL WIN THE BATTLE FOR YOUR BUSINESS?

You actually get a day off, and how are you going to spend it? Shopping! With a bounce in your step and optimism in your heart, you make yourself presentable, hop in your car, or some mode of public transport, and take the 30 to 90 minute ride to the nearest store that has scrubs and lab coats. Oh yeah and don't forget you'll probably have the kids with you. So that means we can add car seats, carriers and strollers to the mix. You got this, right?

You get to the shopping center, find a place to park where you pray your car won't get dinged, then hoof it across the parking lot to the mall entrance. You imagine you're the next contestant on American Ninja Warrior as you dodge all the other shoppers and the pushy sales people at the kiosks. You narrowly escape the lady, with too much make up and big hair, spraying perfume on everyone who comes within five fee of her. Congratulations, you have gotten some good cardio time in, and have made it to the uniform shop!

You are now in full on hunter mode to find tops, pants, and a jacket in the color required by your department, in your size, and that doesn't make you look like you are wearing a bag. After spending an hour digging through racks and waiting your turn for a dressing room, you found the perfect top and jacket! Good thing because the kids are getting really bored, and you know what that will lead to. The top and jacket look great, but the only pants in your color and size they have in stock are petite length and you are 5'10". In desperation you wonder if you could start a new fad with Capri length scrub pants? You look in the mirror and realize, "Not going to happen." The next closest uniform store is in the next town over. Now what?

There are two kinds of people; one who would look at this as a wonderful way to spend their day off because they live to shop; and the other who would rather have their feet held over burning coals.

Ok, so if you're not one of those people who love the thrill of the hunt, but you gotta get some scrubs for work, never fear; the internet is here! Just Google "scrubs", I dare you. You'll be flooded with pages and pages of places to shop. You may be thinking, "I'll just go to the place that has everything!" You know who I'm talking about. Starts with an "A" and ends with a "mazon". Yes, you could do that, but let me tell you why I think you should shop with us instead.

Uniforms are our thing. It's all we do, so you know your uniform order is important to us. We've been in the uniform biz for over 20 years. We have a lady in our office that has been here the entire 20 years and really knows her stuff when it comes to scrubs and lab coats. And unlike those other websites, you can actually talk to her! Just ask for Sherri. We are a small business, but are giants in the field of customer service. We are available by phone or live chat during our normal business hours of M – F 8:30am – 4:30pm CST. During our off hours, when we are spending time with our families, you can leave a voice mail, a chat message or send us an email. We will get back to you on the next business day.

Information is power, right? We put lots of info on the website for each product so you can make an informed choice. Any time someone calls with a question on an item, we get the answer direct from the manufacturer and then we not only supply the answer to the person with the question, but we add that info to the product record on the website! One thing you won't see on our site, unlike you know who, is false or solicited reviews of items. Any product information on our site is 100% verified by the manufacturer of the garment.

We carry all the top brands and we ship direct to you from the manufacturer. This allows us to offer each manufacturers full product line in every color and size! Because all we do is healthcare apparel, we can do it better!

HOW TO LOOK GOOD & HELP THE ENVIRONMENT

By Michael McGrath 3 months ago 118 Views No comments

HOW TO LOOK GOOD & HELP THE ENVIRONMENT

This month we want to shine the light on our manufacturers who are taking an active part in reducing waste in our landfills.

First one up is Barco. They have developed a line of uniforms called Barco One.

https://www.uniformsandscrubs.com/barco-one.html

The Barco One fabric is made from 50% Polyester, 43% Recycled Polyester and 7% Spandex, giving you five points of performance: Recycled fabric, 4-way Stretch, Soil Release, Moisture Wicking, and Wrinkle Resistant. They use an average of five recycled plastic bottles per garment! You get one pant, top and jacket and you have removed 15 bottles from a landfill! They don't stop at that, they are also reducing energy usage by 84% and CO2 emissions by 71% in the production of this Polyester fabric, making this a much "Greener" and sustainable fabric.

If you are as old as me, you remember the Polyester Leisure Suits from the 70's; well this ain't your Daddy's polyester! The Barco One fabric is cool, practically weightless and breathable. The super fine weave allows it to drape beautifully while the 7% spandex gives you just enough stretch for all day comfort. Many of the tops and jackets in the Barco One line have strategically placed panels of ArcTech Perforated Fabric for maximum air flow to keep you cool even when the heat is on.

The Barco One line comes in nine Core Colors and nine Fashion Colors. The Fashion Colors come and go with the seasons while the Core Colors are available year round. This is a line that truly has something for everyone, men's and ladies styles and sizes from XXS to 5X with pants available in regular, petite and tall.

I would be remiss if I didn't also mention the "Seamless" Long Sleeve Tees for both men and women. These are made from 60% Polyester, 23% Nylon and a whopping 17% Spandex for moisture wicking, odor control, four way stretch and they are chafe-free!

Ladies https://www.uniformsandscrubs.com/barco-onetm-5305-long-sleeve-tee.html

Men's https://www.uniformsandscrubs.com/barco-onetm-0305-men-s-long-sleeve-tee.html

The second line using Recycled Polyester in their production is a name you already know and love in your everyday street wear, Skechers.

https://www.uniformsandscrubs.com/skechers-scrubs.html

Skechers is made from 54% Polyester, 40% Recycled Polyester and 6% Spandex ArcGreen™ Fabric with five points of performance: Recycled fabric, 4-way Comfort Stretch, Soil Release, Moisture Wicking and Wrinkle Resistant . They have a full range of tops, pants and jackets for guys and girls in sizes XXS – 5XL with the bonus of affordable price points that make this line perfect for eco-minded groups. They offer nine core colors and two fashion colors in this season's line.

You now have two choices for uniforms from brand names that have a heart for our environment, an eye for style, and a passion about comfort. Happy shopping!

LEG PAIN & SWELLING FROM LONG HOURS ON THE GO

LEG PAIN & SWELLING FROM LONG HOURS ON THE GO

If you have been in the medical field for any length of time, you know that the hours are long and you are on your feet for most of the time. Doctor, nurse, or any of the support staff; the problem is the same; leg pain and swelling from long hours on the go. May we suggest treating yourself to compression socks or compression calf sleeves?

COMPRESSION SOCKS

Compression socks and calf sleeves can help with occasional mild to moderate leg pain and swelling. If you would consider your pain and swelling severe, please consult a physician. I hope this information helps you so you can continue to help others.

WHAT IS "FABRIC WEIGHT" AND WHY DOES IT MATTER?

By Michael McGrath 5 months ago 281 Views No comments

WHAT IS "FABRIC WEIGHT" AND WHY DOES IT MATTER?

Fabric weight is usually given in ounces per yard here in the U.S.A. (None of that metric stuff for us!) What it's describing is how much one yard of each particular fabric would weigh. Think of this like the thread count on sheets. We all know the difference in feel between a 180 thread count sheet and a 400 thread count sheet, not to mention the difference in how long they will last after multiple use/wash cycles. No contest, right? Well the same logic can be applied to your uniforms. If two tops are both made of 65% polyester and 35% cotton, but one is 3.5oz and the other is 4.5oz, we know that the 4.5oz is a tighter weave and will have a smoother feel and will hold up through more use/wash cycles.

Another benefit to the higher fabric weight, when buying whites, is more modesty. There is nothing worse than being able to see your under garments through a white top or pant. Higher fabric weight = tighter weave = less show through.

The manufacturers don't normally advertise the fabric weight, so a good rule to follow is, like with 180 vs. 400 thread count sheets, you get what you pay for. Most of the "economy lines" can be sold for less because they are made from the thinner less expensive fabric. That is fine if your job is a gritty one that forces you to replace your uniforms more frequently.

We've talked in previous blogs about the difference between poplin and twill fabrics and the different fabric blends. All of that, combined with the fabric weight make the garment feel, drape, wash and wear differently.

Here are some links to previous blog posts that may help you be a more informed consumer when choosing your uniforms. And don't forget our customer service staff is available to answer your questions. If we don't know something about a garment, we will be happy to contact the manufacturer to find the answer for you.

​MATERNITY WEAR

By Michael McGrath 6 months ago 613 Views No comments

MATERNITY WEAR

Over the years we have seen a lot of changes in attitudes about maternity fashion. There was a time when women did anything and everything to hide their increasing tummy; even to the point of staying home and avoiding social situations during the later stages of the pregnancy when it was not possible to hide their "condition".

Fast forward to today when it seems that anything goes when it comes to maternity wear on the street. Instead of trying to hide the "bump" we are doing are best to show it off in tight tops or clinging fabrics that accentuate the tummy as if saying "Look at me! I'm pregnant & proud of it!"

No matter what your style on the street; hiding or showing off the bump, work is another matter. We need to look professional while being comfortable. Though options for maternity wear in the nursing field are limited, we have some great new options with updated fit and style that we're pretty excited about.

You can see our full Maternity Line offering at: https://www.uniformsandscrubs.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=maternity

Cherokee Flexibles are made from 65% polyester and 35% cotton in the body.

The top https://www.uniformsandscrubs.com/maternity-wrap-top.html

The pant https://www.uniformsandscrubs.com/maternity-flare-pant.html

The top has polyester knit panels down the sides for comfort and of course the pant has a wide scooped polyester knit waist band for comfort and tummy support. These are offered in thirteen colors. They even have one print top just to shake things up. https://www.uniformsandscrubs.com/dots-wonderful-maternity-print-top.html

Cherokee also makes a maternity top and pant in their Core Stretch fabric. 55% Cotton / 42% Polyester / 3% Spandex High Tech Stretch Fabric for all over stretch! 55% Cotton / 42% Polyester / 3% Spandex High Tech Stretch Fabric. The pant https://www.uniformsandscrubs.com/core-stretch-maternity-moderate-flare-pant.html and the top https://www.uniformsandscrubs.com/core-stretch-maternity-v-neck-top.html come in three colors.

WonderWink has another stretch fabric option made from 100% Super Silky Soft Polyester Stretch for easy care and, low maintenance. The top https://www.uniformsandscrubs.com/maternity-mock-wrap-top.html and the pant https://www.uniformsandscrubs.com/maternity-flare-cargo-pant.html come in five colors.

And the newest addition to the maternity line is from Urbane Ultimate made from 54% Rayon / 44% Polyester / 2% Spandex for no iron, great fit, soft, stretchy, lightweight and durable fabric. The pant https://www.uniformsandscrubs.com/urbane-ultimate-9399-maternity-pant.html and the top https://www.uniformsandscrubs.com/urbane-ultimate-9699-maternity-top.html come in five colors.

We hope this helps those of you who are "in the family way" as my grandma used to say. To add to that pregnancy glow, choose your style and color of these great fashions to look and feel your best and rock the bump!

GOT A STAIN? DON'T TRASH IT, SAVE IT WITH THESE TIPS WE FOUND

How to Remove Laundry Stains With Vinegar By Erin Huffstetler April 30, 2017

https://www.thebalance.com/how-to-remove-laundry-stains-with-vinegar-1387973

Not much beats the stain-fighting power of vinegar. Learn how to treat 13 of your toughest laundry stains with distilled white vinegar and just a bit of elbow grease.

1 Tomato Stains

Saturate the tomato stain with vinegar and allow it to soak in. Then, launder as usual. Check to make sure the stain is out before you run it through the dryer.

2 Mildew Stains

If you forgot to move the wash over to the dryer, and it smells mildewy or has visible mildew stains, just mix equal parts vinegar and water with some salt, and soak the clothing in the solution. This should lift mildew stains from most fabrics. If you still see signs of staining after soaking, make a solution of undiluted vinegar and salt, and soak it again.

3 Coffee/Tea Stains

To banish coffee or tea stains, soak the stained fabric in 1/3 cup vinegar mixed with 2/3 cup water. Hang the garment outside in the sun to dry, then launder as usual.

4 Mustard Stains

Mustard stains require a bit of persistence. Start by applying undiluted vinegar to the stain. Then, allow it to soak in. If that doesn't do it, you may also need to treat the spot with laundry detergent. Just work it into the stain. Then, throw it in the wash. Check to make sure the stain is out before you dry the garment. Repeat the process, if necessary.

5 Sweat Stains

To banish sweat stains, pour vinegar over the discolored area, and rub coarse salt into it. Table salt will work if it's all you have. Place the garment out in the sun to dry; then, wash it.

6 Grass Stains

To lift grass stains, soak the garment in undiluted vinegar for 30 minutes; then launder it. If you can still see signs of the stain after washing, try making a paste of vinegar and baking soda. Use an old toothbrush to coat the stain; then launder it again.

7 Ink Stains

Defeat stubborn ink stains by spraying the stain with hair spray; then, dab vinegar on the hair spray to remove it -- and the ink. Nifty!

8 Blood Stains

Fast action is the cure for bloodstains. Pour vinegar over the stain, and allow it to soak for 15 minutes. Then, rinse with cool water, and repeat if necessary. Wash immediately.

9 Set-in Stains

Saturate set-in stains with vinegar. Then, rub the spot with a paste made from equal parts vinegar and baking soda. You can add a couple tablespoons each of vinegar and laundry detergent to a bucket of water and soak the garment overnight if the stain persists. Then, rinse and wash.

10 Crayon Stains

Rub vinegar into the crayon stain with a brush -- an old toothbrush works great. Then, toss the garment in the wash.

11 Vomit Stains

Rinse the garment in cool water to remove as much of the vomit as possible. Then, soak the stain in vinegar, and wash the garment. Repeat the process, if necessary.

12 Rust Stains

To remove a rust stain, soak a cotton ball in vinegar, and use it to blot the stain. Cover the stain with a thin layer of salt, and rub it into the vinegar and the fabric. Lay the garment outside in direct sunlight until the stain has faded. Then, wash as usual.

13 Iron Scorch Marks

Accidentally leave the iron on your clothes for too long? Reverse the damage by soaking a cotton ball or rag in vinegar, and use it to dab at the scorched area. Blot the stain with a clean rag, and this should lift the stain. It may take more than one application to fully remove the scorch mark.

Can you get stains out of clothes after they've been washed?

BY ALIA HOYT https://home.howstuffworks.com/home-improvement/household-hints-tips/cleaning-organizing/stains-out-of-clothes-after-theyve-been-washed.htm

One of the simple, unavoidable facts of life is that stains happen, no matter how careful we are with our glasses of red wine or simmering pans of spaghetti sauce. Unfortunately, every stain reacts differently to the myriad cleaning methods out there, so success isn't guaranteed on the first try, even if you do everything right from the very moment the blemish occurs. Many people throw in the towel, so to speak, after the garment in question has been put through the washing machine to less than stellar results. There's no need to give up on your favorite tee, though! Whether your pretreatment failed or you simply didn't notice the stain before tossing it in the wash, there are plenty of ways to eliminate pesky blemishes. In fact, almost all stains will come out with some extra elbow grease (pun intended). So lather, rinse and repeat as much as necessary, using any or all of these handy tips and tricks!

My go-to stain removal technique is appallingly easy. Just rub a little bit of liquid detergent directly onto the stain, let it soak in and then run it through the washer again. Some experts swear by liquid dishwashing detergent used in the same fashion. Hey, it's all soap, right?

Stain-removal sprays and sticks have come a long way in recent years. A squirt or two of the good stuff usually does the trick. Just make sure you follow the given directions or it won't be as effective.

For grease marks caused by substances like salad dressing or cooking oils, simply rub a stick of white chalk into the stain to absorb the offending spot and then run it through the washer again.

Adding baking soda to the wash and then running the garment through again is another effective method for getting rid of oil or grease stains.

If that annoying oil stain still hasn't budged, consider rubbing some corn starch directly into it and washing it yet again.

Occasionally, kids or crafty adults get a little overzealous with glue sticks -- and their clothes pay the price. Unfortunately, glue can leave a stain even after the substance has been peeled or scraped off. Acetone, which is found in nail polish remover, is generally very effective at getting rid of glue-based blemishes. Make sure the fabric you're treating is colorfast and machine washable, though, since acetone can cause the fabric to become further discolored.

Bleach is very harsh and often less effective than most stain removal aids, so try to avoid using it when possible. If you feel like it's your only option, though, start with diluted oxygen bleach and move on to chlorine bleach if necessary.

Really old, stubborn stains sometimes respond best to liquid glycerin. Rub it in, let it soak and then launder again.

Whatever you do, try to avoid putting stained items in the dryer because the heat often causes the discoloration to set permanently.

Quick Tips for Removing Stains from Clothing

BY THE EDITORS OF PUBLICATIONS INTERNATIONAL, LTD. & RACHAEL SCHULTZ

https://home.howstuffworks.com/home-improvement/household-hints-tips/cleaning-organizing/10-quick-tips-for-removing-stains-from-clothing.htm

To remove spots of blood from clothing, use 3 percent hydrogen peroxide -- the kind you find in the first-aid section of the store. Soak the stain with the peroxide, use your fingernail or the blade of a butter knife to help loosen and scrape away the blood, then rinse it away with more hydrogen peroxide. In most cases, you'll have better luck removing stains -- especially blood stains -- if you treat them immediately after they happen, before the stains have a chance to dry.

Another method for removing blood from clothing is to wet the stained area of the fabric with water, sprinkle it with plain old table salt, rub one half of the stain against the other to work in the salt and loosen the stain, then immediately launder the garment the way you usually do.

Grass stains on clothes can be removed with an old toothbrush and plain white toothpaste; just make sure you use a paste variety and not a gel. Squeeze a small amount of the toothpaste onto the stain, then dip the toothbrush in clean water and use it to scrub away the stain. Repeat this process as needed to treat all of the stain(s). Rinse the area and launder the clothing as usual. Now you can steal home plate without a second thought.

To banish a ring around the collar…

Whether it's on work shirts or Sunday best, staining around the collar can be easily vanquished with a touch of something you're pretty much guaranteed to have in the house -- shampoo. Just pour a little shampoo -- any shampoo will do, even the inexpensive, generic kind -- onto the collar, rub the collar together to work the shampoo in well, and rinse thoroughly. Then launder as usual.

To remove lipstick from dark fabrics, grab a piece of white bread and remove the crust. You don't have to forgo a sandwich; you can use the heel of the loaf -- no one likes that piece anyway. Wad up the soft center and rub it gently on the stain until it picks up all of the lipstick. Sweep away any leftover crumbs with a clean, soft-bristled brush.

To remove grease spots, Sprinkle the spot with cornstarch. Allow the cornstarch to soak up the grease for a few minutes, and then brush it away. The grease spot will lift right out, and you can get back to trying to convince everyone to use napkins instead of their clothes.

Oily stains from natural body oils can be removed with plain shampoo (just like oil in your hair). It's that easy. Just pour some on the stained areas, rub it in, rinse thoroughly and launder the garment as usual.

If you get ink on a piece of clothing, try soaking the ink mark with rubbing alcohol and wiping it away with a clean, white cloth. Another old-fashioned remedy for removing ink marks from clothes and other fabrics is to wet a sponge with milk and rub the ink stain until it disappears.

To remove tea stains: Mix up a concoction of heavily sugared water by stirring the water as you add sugar to it. Keep adding sugar until it no longer dissolves (warm water makes it easier for sugar to dissolve). To remove tea stains from clothing or table linens, submerge the stained area for several minutes in a small container of the heavily sugared water, then launder as usual.

We have not tried all of these tips for stain removal, so let us know what works for you and we may include you and your idea in a future blog!

ALL PANT LEGS ARE NOT THE SAME

ALL PANT LEGS ARE NOT THE SAME

During my glory days; the pant leg on my jeans were a huge bell that covered my entire foot and they dragged the ground. They were worn to perfection once the bottom edges started to fray from walking on them. Over the years these have went out of style, came back in for a while then faded out again.

I've been working with scrubs since 1990 and have watched the ever changing pant leg move through one fashion trend to another. Let's be honest, how many of you still have a pair of scrub pants with the knit cuff on the ankle? These hit the market when the parachute pants were in. Yikes! You either loved them or hated them, right?

Today the pant leg still continues to evolve. So let's take a look at what is out there now and see if we can find the right style for you.

TAPERED LEG: Tapered means the leg is slimmer and more fitted to the leg at the ankle. ... Tapered leg refers to the width of the pants leg narrowing as it goes down to follow the shape of leg. For an example of a "tapered leg" see Landau style 8320 http://www.uniformsandscrubs.com/classic-fit-tapered-leg-pant.html

FLARE LEG: Flare aka Bell Bottoms become wider from the knees down. Often these are slimmer through the thigh area. For an example of a "flare leg" see WonderWink style 502 http://www.uniformsandscrubs.com/wonderwork-women-s-flare-leg-pant.html

STRAIGHT LEG: Straight leg pants are most popular with the guys and normally they have the same circumference from the knee to the hem. To see an example of a straight leg pant go to Cherokee style 4000 http://www.uniformsandscrubs.com/men-s-utility-draw-cord-pant.html

RELAXED FIT: Relaxed fit in a let usually means it has more room in the hip and thigh area. The pant can then have either a straight, tapered or flare leg from the knee down.

BOOT CUT: Boot cut pant are similar to straight but not entirely. They are fitted around the thighs and only slightly taper off at the knees, so as to accommodate a boot. It's not entirely straight like a straight-legged pant and it's not totally flared like a flared-legged pant. It's sort of in the middle between a straight and a flare. You can see an example of a boot cut pant with Maevn style 9202 http://www.uniformsandscrubs.com/blossom-multi-pocket-utility-cargo-pant-180423.html

SKINNY LEG: Skinny pants are exactly what the name implies: they're skinny and tight. They have a snug fit from the waist all the way down to the hem. See Urbane style 9313 for an example. http://www.uniformsandscrubs.com/ultimate-skinny-cargo-tapered-pant.html

ANKLE VENT: An ankle vent is a slit on the outside of the ankle and can be on a straight leg, boot cut or flare leg. See White Swan style 19202 as an example. http://www.uniformsandscrubs.com/pants/bio-stretch-mega-pocket-cargo-pant.html

FORWARD LEG VENT: This is similar to the ankle vent, but it is facing forward over the foot and has a wider tulip like space. See Jockey style 2428. http://www.uniformsandscrubs.com/pants/jockeytm-2428-performance-rx-get-up-and-go-pant.html

So no matter what you like in a pant leg for your street clothes, chances are you can mirror that style in your work clothes. I hope this helps to guide you to "your style", but if you need more help, please reach out to our customer service team by live chat or phone during regular business hours; or email 24/7.
