Fluid resistant scrubs?

  1. Hello everyone! I was looking at a uniform catalog that I just recieved, and it had fluid resistant scrubs. It indicated that if spashed with blood, the blood would just roll off of the scrubs and not penetrate into the scrubs and reach your skin.

    Does anybody have any experience with any type of fluid resistant scrubs? If so, does the fluid resistance last after washing? Any thoughts and advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    A girl I worked with had them. She "demonstrated" their fluid resistancy by pouring a glass of water on her thigh....the water just rolled off.

    I can say that the material didn't feel very comfortable when I touched it. Made me think of dark blue Dickies work uniforms.

    Wasnt there a brand of clothing that was promoting their "stain" resistant mens slacks a few months ago? Must be the same type of material/treatment. I havent seen any of these scrubs as of yet so i cant say much about their comfort or resiliency. Let us know if you decide to get some and how they work out. Interesting...
