Caring For Your Medelita Products Is Simple And Easy

Care Guide

We spent years testing and developing performance fabrics and features that could withstand even the harshest industrial laundry conditions. As a result, you can wash and dry your Medelita garments at home on any temperature — an essential feature for those working in healthcare. We take enormous pride in our ability to outperform in third party fabric tests. All of our garments look brand new after 50 test wash cycles at 60 degrees Celsius and 24-minute hot dryer cycles.


COVID-19 RISK GARMENT CARE GUIDE

  • DO NOT SHAKE.
  • Avoid shaking clothing or quick movements while undressing.
  • Consider placing worn scrubs in a washable laundry bag and placing entire bag (with cinch loosened) in the washer.
  • PRE-TREAT STAINS AS NEEDED.
  • Medelita garments have stain release functionality, so most stains will resolve with detergent alone.
  • For COVID-19 exposed garments, avoid pre-treating and simply add ½ cup peroxide to wash.
  • If non-COVID exposure, we recommended Amodex® for ink stains & OxyClean® Spray or Shout® Foam for other stains.
  • MACHINE WASH ON WARM OR HOT, NORMAL OR SANITIZE CYCLE.
  • Regular laundry detergent easily disrupts the lipid layer of COVID-19.
  • Chlorine bleach is not recommended and not required for COVID-19 exposed garments.
  • Color-safe bleach is ok.
  • To preserve the innovative moisture wicking and quick-dry technology, do not use liquid fabric softener.
  • TUMBLE DRY NORMAL OR HOT.
  • Do not use dryer sheets to avoid plugging the moisture-wicking fabric functionality.
  • Dry garments completely as per CDC.
  • NO IRONING NEEDED.
  • Remove from dryer at end of cycle and hang for a wrinkle-free appearance.
  • DRY CLEANING NOT SUGGESTED.
  • Industrial laundry is recommended for hospital laundered garments.
  • If professional dry cleaning is common at your facility, request laundry v. dry cleaning for adequate lipid disruption.
  • Request no starch.

The most durable fabric in the industry.

Our innovative fabrics become softer and performance features last with every wash, even in the harshest of commercial laundry facilities. No ironing or special handling is required.

Lab Coat Fabric

Our lab coat fabric is truly revolutionary. It repels fluid - including blood - yet is supremely soft and comfortable. Remarkable repel and release technology allows you to maintain a bright white, crisp, professional finish long-term. White lab coats by Medelita are intelligently equipped for the job at hand.

Scrub Fabric

Running from one case to the next. Complicated procedures under hot lights. An awkward patient interaction. It's inevitable…we all sweat during our 10, 12, even 24 hour shifts. Medelita scrubs are made from a patented fabric that keeps you dry, fresh, and free of odors…for the lifetime of the garment.

See what the experts are saying

"I avoided my white coat for years due to discomfort/appearance and my preference has completely changed on both. I wear Medelita all the time"

"The first elite medical apparel alternative for discerning consumers who value well-made products and professional appearance."

"The professional standard with respect to appearance. Other choices are simply inferior, and obviously inferior. You will do no better."
