Top medical apparel provider, Uniform Advantage, performs wash test with Butter-Soft Stretch and Cherokee Core Stretch

We see the results of this test as a big win for both our private label brand, Butter-Soft Stretch, and the well-established household brand Cherokee

Uniform Advantage(UA), a multi-channel retailer of uniforms for healthcare and hospitality industries performed a wash test of two top scrub brands to determine the outcome of quality, color and durability after 60 washes.

Commercial laundry facilities use 60 wash cycles as the benchmark for durability. This number also serves as a solid representation of a lifecycle for a set of medical scrubs. After the 60 wash and dry cycles, both products held up with minimal shrinking in width and length, slight seam puckering, no seams unraveling and only slight color fading.

“From time-to-time, our customers will ask us if our private label product really compares to other top brands,” said Todd Lewis, Vice President of Merchandising, Global Sourcing and Production. “We see the results of this test as a big win for both our private label brand, Butter-Soft Stretch, and the well-established household brand Cherokee.”

Uniform Advantage carries many scrub brands and is among one of the very few retailers in the industry who designs and manufactures its own exclusive collections. For the wash test, Uniform Advantage compared two popular brands and styles – Butter-Soft Stretch BSS362 and Cherokee Workwear Core Stretch CK630. These two products are composed of the following:

Fabric: 55% Cotton / 42% Poly / 3% Spandex
Retail Price: $17.99
Fit Type + Style: V-Neck, 3-pockets

Uniform Advantage will be performing additional wash tests in the near future.
