How to extend the life of your white coat?
A white lab coat is the choice of many doctors, but white is difficult to keep clean all the time. Here are some tips to keep your lab coat clean and extend its life.
A. Make sure to clean the coat regularly. In the usual washing, be careful not to wash it with other clothes. This is not only to prevent bacterial infection, but more importantly, to prevent the white coat from being stained by other colors. In normal washing, you can choose to use detergents containing enzymes or fluorescent whitening agents, and wash in warm water. After washing, it can be dried and ironed.
B. Ink stains. Don't try to wash with water after you find the ink stain. After you find the ink stain, spray some hairspray on the ink stain, being careful not to rub it. Let the jacket sit for an hour or more, and then wash it normally. Note that before putting the jacket into the dryer, make sure that the ink stains have been cleaned up. If it has not been cleaned up, you need to continue spraying the hair gel and standing for cleaning.
C. Coffee and food stains. When you find it, you can use cold water for a simple treatment. After the shift, apply a stain remover and clean it normally.
D. Blood stains. Apply hydrogen peroxide as soon as possible and blot dry with gauze. Then wash the coat with plenty of detergent and detergent builder in cold water.
E. Body fluids-bleach. Soak the coat in a bucket of warm water and bleach for 30 minutes or more. Then wash with warm water and detergent.
