We made our scrubs to be just like you – practical!

We found the most durable fabrics and styled them into bespoke scrubs that allow you to express your individual style. And because we understand how busy a medical professional gets, we wanted you to have scrubs that require the least amount of maintenance or care possible. Easy wear, easy care.

So when you get your Wiggle Scrubs, not only will you get tons of compliments from your colleagues and patients, but you’ll not have to worry too much about washing, drying or even ironing.

That said – a little bit of TLC every now and then goes a long way and from time to time a gentle press will ensure that you look as good as you feel in your scrubs.

Oh! And we highly recommend air drying your scrubs as opposed to tumble drying. They are quick-dry so this shouldn’t take long.

How to deal with stains on scrubs:

Even though your Wiggle Scrubs are designed using durable fabrics that are generally stain resistant they are not stain proof and therefore, from time to time, you may find yourself battling with a stain or two.

There are a number of different types of stains one would expect to encounter for medical professionals, listed below. In all cases, we recommend quick response to spills, where possible. Discard as much of the mess as possible, and try to rinse the affected area in cold water.


According to cleanipedia, removing blood from clothing can be a simple process, despite it’s bad reputation.

The key here is to never use hot water on the blood stain – only cold.

  • Rinse the stain in cold water
  • Apply a little soap and work in gently using a cloth
  • You may need to repeat this process once or twice before washing as normal using a good quality laundry detergent

If the blood stain has dried, you will need to use something stronger than soap and water. The most effective method is to use hydrogen peroxide, an oxidizing agent that removes old blood stains via a chemical reaction that breaks down the discolouration. It’s advisable to do a small test on the underside of a hem to see ensure this does not discolour the fabric.


We’re hoping that this one applies more to vets than to dentists! Although we understand that medical doctors may encounter this from time to time, for purposes of this blog, we’ll look at removing pet urine from scrubs. Reason being that due to the do hormones in pet urine (the bit that sends messages to other dogs), the urine may be somewhat smellier.

Ideally, try to soak/blot up the urine as soon as you can, and if possible rinse under a cold tap.

The key here is vinegar, which breaks down the uric acid, making the stain easier to clean.

Soak the stain in cold water and vinegar for at least 20 minutes – agitate the garment and water from time to time. If the stain has been there for a while and is dried and stubborn, you may need to soak overnight. Once the vinegar has had time to do its thing, pop your garment into the wash using your regular detergent and hot water.


Now this is something we hope you don’t encounter too often, but as we like to say, ‘shift happens’, so we thought we should include this one.

You’ll want to clean and ensure that you have properly sanitized.

You’ll start by rinsing in cold or warm water and blotting with a dry cloth or sponge. Try not to rub this kind of stain rather rinse and blot repeatedly.

Next, wash in the washing machine with detergent and some vinegar.

Hang your scrubs in direct sunlight because that golden ball in the sky can do wonders in terms of stain removal and disinfecting.


Our natural best friend is baking soda, which will absorb the smell and lift the stain from the fabric.

Once you have added some baking soda to the stain (enough to thoroughly cover the stain) pour over some lemon juice and vinegar, which will result in some fizzing action on the garment.

You can gently rub this mixture over the stained area using your finger or a soft brush. Thereafter, rinse the area and machine wash as usual, followed by some sun and air drying.
