Reusing & Recycling Old Scrubs

It’s not a coincidence that nearly all medical professionals have chosen scrubs to be their uniform of choice. Medical scrubs work to protect doctors, nurses, surgeons and other healthcare providers from dangerous substances and contaminants on the job. Due to constant use and cleaning, it’s only a matter of time before scrubs eventually fade in color and acquire holes and stains. Follow along below as we discuss some creative things you can do with your old scrubs and medical uniforms.

First & Foremost

Before you can reuse or recycle scrubs it’s crucial that they have been thoroughly washed and sanitized. For the best tips on how to do this check out our previous posts about disinfecting scrubs and removing the worst types of stains.


Try transforming your old scrubs into something that has a completely different purpose. Cut some into pieces to use as rags when deep cleaning, sew them into a quilt or scrunchies, or use as a dog toy in a friendly game of tug of war.


If the scrubs are in relatively good condition and free of stains, consider donating them to a hospital or medical organization in need. This can help ensure that more of their funding can be allocated to purchasing medical equipment and improving quality of patient care.

Continue Wearing Them!

Who says you can’t keep a few pairs of scrubs to wear while completing messy tasks around the house? Throw on an old pair of scrubs before painting, cleaning, yard work, crafts projects, or washing the dogs. This way you don’t accidentally stain, rip, or ruin your regular clothing whilst completing messy chores.

Final Thoughts

Making the conscious decision to reuse, repurpose, or recycle old scrubs will not only generate more closet space, but it benefits people in need and helps reduce medical waste too! After donating or repurposing your old scrubs be sure to replace them with new, modern, flattering, and affordable options from Scrubs Nyack. We are a leading provider of men’s and women’s scrubs, lab coats, footwear and essential medical equipment in the Nyack, NY community.
