Garment Care Instructions for Scrub Tops

Many people experience the problem of fluff on cotton rich garments such as the koi scrub tops which use a soft poly-cotton fabric (55% cotton), unfortunately fluff tends to be attracted to higher quality, heavier weaves. Fluff can be removed with a lint roll (available in Ikea etc), sticky tape will do in an emergency.

Fluff should not be confused with pilling or balling; this is the formation of little balls of material forming around loose fibres, which will not be easily removed by brushing or using a lint roll (a razor can help!). Pilling can be caused by poor quality material, a loose weave or excessive abrasion. Pilling will not occour on good quality tunics and scrubs such as those by Hejco and koi.

Here are our garment care instructions - Five top tips for reducing fluff
