Add A Splash Of Personality To Your Work Day!

We all want to be able to look great in and out of work! Medical uniforms have certainly evolved over the years - Today there are so many options to spruce up your uniforms!  

Are you curious how to make your uniform stand out at work?  Even if your company has a dress code, there are still ways you can add a splash of personality into your everyday work uniforms! Here are a few ideas...

Wear Bright Colors or Designs
A lot of times, when you think of scrubs you may think of the basic white or blue scrubs, but there are so many other options! For women, there are crew neck warm up jackets, fashionable scrub pants, trendy white lab coats and fun designs and animal prints. For men, there are cargo drawstring pants, sporty v-neck scrub tops and warm-up jackets.

Accessorize!
You no longer need to walk around wearing a plain stethoscope or drab surgical caps - Check out all of Lydia's fun accessories you can add to your dress code!

Shoes for Comfort AND Style
Over the past few years, nursing shoes have come a long way in the fashion AND comfort department!  As someone in the medical profession, you are constantly on your feet and it is important to invest in a pair of shoes that will be comfortable but not sacrifice fashion!  If you’re a woman and looking to bring out your inner fashionista, wear flexible clogs with animal prints or trendy tennis shoes. If you’re a male, you might choose a shoe with more of a sporty look.

People in the medical profession today are faced with many challenges on a daily basis, why not add a little fun to your day by tossing on a sparkly stethoscope or wearing trendy shoes? Sometimes it’s the small things that can make a big difference in your day.

What are ways you bring flair to your uniform? Share your ideas in our comment section below or on our Facebook page!

Pink With A Purpose

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month - a month that is dedicated to promoting the fight against breast cancer and raising awareness around the globe. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month has been recognized since 1985 and has steadily grown since then. Did you know that Lydia's Uniforms carries a selection of medical uniform apparel and accessories to support this great cause? With October fast approaching, now is a great time to order your gear to receive it in time for Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Lydia's Uniforms has a variety of tops, jackets, bags, socks, and even stethoscopes perfect for showing off your support of those affected by breast cancer. If you place your order now, you'll have your new awareness scrubs by the beginning of October and you can wear them throughout the entire month (and of course there’s nothing wrong with wearing them year round!). Check out some of my favorite items below and shop our entire collection today! 

The outfit:

I just love the Cherokee 'Wild About a Cure scrub top!  Not only is it cute, but it's so soft! This print is available in a jacket as well. Pair these with your favorite Cherokee Scrubs Pants in pink or black for a complete look.

The Shoes:

One of my favorite shoes right now is the Skechers GoWalk Strong. Not only are they super comfortable but they are perfect for raising awareness!

The accessories:

I love accessories, especially cups! (I'll admit it... I may have a little cup obsession!) The breast cancer awareness tumbler cup is a must have for Breast Cancer Awareness month.  A few other must have accessories I noticed were the Pink Ribbons Utility Scissor, the D'Feed Breast Cancer compression socks and the Pink Ribbon Lanyard!  These will all fit perfectly inside the adorable Give Love tote bag from Koi too.

In addition to wearing pink, is there anything that you're doing in October to support National Breast Cancer Awareness Month?

A Guide to Caring for your Scrubs

There's nothing worse than wearing your favorite set of scrubs to work and then getting some kind of a stain on them! But in the medical profession, it's bound to happen.  I remember a few years back while working as a phlebotomist, I had finally bought a Dickies scrub pant that I had been wanting for awhile. I was so excited to wear them into my shift that night, I had even picked out the cutest top to go with them. Just 30 minutes into my shift I look down there was huge stain on my brand new pants, I was so mad!

There are so many different kind of stains that you can acquire throughout the day - blood, iodine, coffee/tea, and sweat... just to name a few.  You spend a lot of time in your scrubs, wouldn't it be nice to extend the life of them? We have come up with a handy household stain removal guide to help care for your scrubs!

  • Vomit Stain: Rinse clean, pretreat with detergent and wash in warm water.
  • Coffee or Tea Stain: Blot the stain, sponge with 1 part white vinegar to 2 parts warm water and rinse.
  • Ink Pen Stain: Just soak the affected garment in milk overnight and launder as usual the next day. Don’t have milk in the house? Try alcohol-based hairspray directly on the ink for 30 seconds and then wipe the ink away with a damp cloth.

  • Iodine Stain: Pour Coca Cola on it, let it soak for 3-5 minutes. Run through washer when possible.

  • Chocolate Stain: Remove chocolate stains by soaking the fabric in club soda before washing it.

  • Blood Stain: Fresh blood stains can be removed by soaking and rubbing the stain in cold water before washing. Never use hot water because it cooks the protein making the stain hard to remove.

  • Sweat Stain: Mix 1 tbsp white vinegar in 1/2 cup of water. Pour vinegar mix over the sweat stain.  Sponge solution onto affected area.

  • Feces Stain: Let the garmet dry in the sun to resolve fecal stains.

  • Ointment Stain: Use a knife to scrape excess ointment from the fabric. Sprinkle cornstarch or talcum powder on the stain and rub it in into the stain with your fingertips, covering it completely. Leave the powder on the stain until it absorbs the grease (wait 15-20 minutes depending on stain size.) Then brush the powder off with a soft brush or clean, dry washcloth. Launder it in cold water.

  • Coca-Cola Stain: Put clear shampoo and salt on the stain and let it sit before washing.

  • Oil Based Medication Stains: Absorb grease with baby or talcum powder, or pretreat with detergent and allow to set for 10 minutes before washing.  Use dish soap as alternative to fight grease.

  • Alochol-based Medications Stain: Pretreat with detergent and rinse with cold water before throwing in the washer.  If the stain is stubborn, pretreat a second time!

 

Do you have any other tips and tricks for taking out stains? We would love to learn from you!

Easy Fit: Wink's Most Flattering Fit Yet

All of us here at Lydia’s have been pretty fidgety since word got out of a new collection coming for our JUST ARRIVED: Fall 2014 Collection! release. It’s been almost a year since WonderWink Scrubs has released a new collection. That’s right, you heard it, a new collection from your favorite winking smile. It’s called Easy Fit, and we have no doubt that you will easily fall in love. I’m sure we all can agree that Wink never fails to provide the right cut, the perfect fit, and the best fabric…and Easy Fit is no different.

So let’s discuss the reasons why we are so anxious and excited to get the word out about Easy Fit. There’s princess seams, gathered mock wraps, and double-ply crossover waistbands. Who wouldn’t be thrilled over these figure flattering lines that compliment natural body curves? (Nobody we know!) These Missy Fit scrubs are comfortable while still giving off that professional vibe; it’s the tailored fit without the cling. Wink has achieved this relaxed fit with the use of a stretch fabric that is silky and sleek and requires minimal care. We’re talking no ironing here, folks! Did we mention lots of pockets and bright punchy colors that should put any medical professional in a good mood. You are just as eager as we are about WonderWink’s newest line of scrubs now, right?
 
Lydia’s Suggestion: start off with the Bright Coral, and then of course add in all the other colors once you realized how such a true fit flatters so easily.

WonderWink Easy Fit Nursing Scrubs Collection!
