Our Top Holiday Prints!

The mornings are starting to get crisper and the leaves have just about all turned their colors here in Michigan, which can only mean one thing, winter is on it's way! For us here at Lydia's the holidays are already on the brain. Our new Holiday Catalog has just been released and we sure have an awesome line up for you this year.  In the new Holiday Catalog you will find some adorable and festive holiday scrubs!

 Here are just a few of our favorite Holiday prints this year!

 

I really can't think of a better top to welcome winter with than the Little Snow Buddies scrub top from Dickies.  I am absolutely in love with this top!  It has a round neck with the peek-a-boo neck band (which I love!) and features an adorable print that just says "WINTER!"

 

Show off your holiday spirit this season with the cute (and super comfy) Peeking Santa tee from Healing Hands. This crew neck top features the famous ol' Saint Nick and has extra long sleeves - perfect for keeping warm this holiday season! 

 

These owls are so adorable! The fun and festive Yule Hoot scrub top from White Cross is sure to make your holiday spirits bright.

Be sure to check out all of our new holiday print scrub tops and let us know which is your favorite!

Color-Fall Scrubs

As I was driving yesterday I noticed some trees that already had leaves changing colors!  As soon as the temperature starts to cool down here I start thinking of Autumn colors and nice warm comfy layers!! Fall is officially here!  I love the colors of fall- rich browns, reds, oranges and yellows! These colors are perfect for your clothes too!  I always find myself adding more of these colors to my closet once September and October roll around.  Do you match your scrubs to the seasons or do you stick to the same colors year round?

 

If you like to mix things up like I do (and if your dress code permits!) then check out these top fall colors at Lydia's Uniforms today! What fall colors do you like to incorporate into your wardrobe for work?

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?

Halloween Prints Are Here

We have one more week of summer and FALL will officially be here... you know what that means, right?  Yup, Halloween is almost here! I love everything about Halloween - from the pumpkin spice lattes to all of the cute decorations... and scrubs! I don't dress up for many holidays, but Halloween is definitely one that I go all out for. 

I couldn't wait any longer to give you all a little sneak peek at the adorable Halloween prints that Lydias Uniforms will be featuring in our newest catalog 

First up is the 'Going Batty' mock wrap scrub top by White Cross.  This adorable top has a grey badkground with cute bats, clouds and moons all over it.  The 'Going Batty' print top fabric is 100% cotton.  Pair the 'Going Batty' top with your favorite pair of black scrub pants for the perfect Halloween look! 

 Next up is the 'If The Shoe Fits' fashion neck scrub top from BIO.  This top is orange with shoes and witches hats with ghosts and spider webs on them.  'If The Shoe Fits' print top fabric is 100% cotton.  If you have a love for shoes (like I do!) you'll probably love this top!  This would be perfect if paired with black or white pants! 

 Last but not least is the 'Midnight Mystery' Anna scrub top from Peaches.  This top has a pretty blue background with fun ghosts, black cats, jack-o-lanterns, bats and trick-or-treaters on it.  'Midnight Mystery' print top fabric is 100% cotton.  With so many different colors, you could pick a fun color to pair this top with, or stick to black pants...either way, you would look nice and festive!

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!
