Please remind your residents, NEVER THROW AWAY SCRUBS!!! They are NEVER too soiled to be cleaned. If they get them out of the scrub access machine damaged, torn, soiled, stained, etc. please inform them to tie them in a knot and put them back in the machine. This gives them their credit for another set of scrubs and lets laundry know there is an issue with that particular set of scrubs.
