Scrubs and Nipples

Dear Hospital Management,

My husband appreciates the recent infusion of new scrubs. However, could I beg a favor of you?

Could you please pre-wash new scrubs with a high dose of fabric softener?

There's nothing like lying down next to your husband in bed on a Friday night only to listen to him to him bemoan a four hour surgery in a new scrub top... which subsequently left him with raw nipples.

I think we can all agree... scrubs should not double as nipple sandpaper.

Much appreciated,

Your Doctor's Wife

  2. This makes me laugh! My husband complains of the very same thing. After I chuckled, I handed him some lanolin from my days of nursing our kiddos. :)

  3. LOL. I bet you the actors on Grey's Anatomy always have their scrubs washed with the best fabric softener money can buy, and yet for the actual doctors...

  4. As a woman, I had never considered this possibility... for once, I am grateful for the invention of the bra!

    1. That does put one bullet in the "PRO" list for bras, doesn't it?! :)

    2. I know, right? I'm putting that down FOR sure.

      It does show though: they should get MEN to wash the clothes. Because women? We don't have to worry about nipple sandpaper!!

    1. He never liked wearing t-shirts under scrubs. I think he gets too hot wearing his lead vest.

  6. Haha, I'm with Sarah! He needs some undershirts. Or, you could get him some pasties as a joke... :)

  7. But just think of all the money you save by not having to buy nipple sandpaper.

    1. True, but apparently I'll be investing in some wife-beaters. :(

  9. HAHA love this post! I get sucked into washing all of Doctor J's scrubs at home because he doesn't like getting them out of the scrub machine!

  10. Haha! This just made me laugh out loud. I will make a note to wash all of C's scrubs before he wears them.
