About This Scrub Cap

Our surgical scrub cap is out of this world - literally! Featuring a cute astronaut embroidery that can be placed according to your preference, our scrub caps are sure to add some personality to your work attire. But that's not all - our scrub caps offer a range of benefits to make your work experience more comfortable and convenient.

First and foremost, our scrub caps fit much better than disposable options, with a variety of sizes and styles available. If you're tired of the poor fit of disposable scrub caps, our caps are the solution you've been looking for. Plus, we use licensed fabric to avoid confusion with official merchandise.

Not only are our scrub caps more comfortable to wear, they're also better for the environment. By switching to reusable scrub caps, you can save around £15,000 ($20,000) per year in disposal costs - equivalent to the carbon footprint of 20 theatres.

In addition to their practical benefits, our scrub caps can also improve team interaction. UK studies have shown that when scrub caps are embroidered with names and roles, there is an increase in name recall amongst staff (from 42% to 85%) and introductions during the surgical safety checklist (from 38% to 90%).

For those with sensitive skin, our scrub caps are hypoallergenic, made from 100% cotton and available with latex-free elastic. And, for added peace of mind, all of our scrub caps are made to order in the UK, ensuring the highest quality control standards.

    The following NHS guidance on workwear washing was updated and published on 2 April 2020. This covers a number of other areas in workplace uniform good practices that we will break down in other scrub cap articles.

    It should be noted while this recommends 60C for washing our caps have been tested on industrial washing sites with cycles over 100C and drying temperatures of 180C. We have also had them tested in autoclaves for washing as well.

     5.2 Washing uniforms and workwear

    All elements of the washing process contribute to the removal of micro-organisms on fabric. Detergents (washing powder or liquid) and agitation release any soiling from the clothes, which is then removed by sheer volume of water during rinsing. Temperature also plays a part.

    Scientific observations and tests, literature reviews and expert opinion as stated in the 2007 suggests that:

    • There is little effective difference between domestic and commercial laundering in terms of removing micro-organisms from uniforms and workwear
    • Washing with detergents at 30ºC will remove most Gram-positive micro-organisms, including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
    • A ten minute wash at 60ºC is sufficient to remove almost all micro-organisms. In tests, only 0.1% of any Clostridioides difficile spores remained. Microbiologists carrying out the research advise that this level of contamination on uniforms and workwear is not a cause for concern

    How this relates to our Surgical Theatre Hats

    Especially when it comes to smaller workwear like Scrub Caps the ease in having a few and taking them home to wash at 60C on a fast 15 min cycle should be enough to eliminate almost all micro-organisms. Even if washing is done centrally within the trust or practice these can have a very fast turn around compared to uniforms.

    We have tested our plain caps up to industrial washing temperatures of 180 degrees C when drying.
