Poll: Get a load off!

We have a hunch…and want to prove it. All the nurses we know are also saddled with what appears to be tons more laundry than civilians. Is this the case with you?

    I absolutely think nurses do more laundry than civilians! Consider this: I have to wear a certain color for work, and have only a couple sets of scrubs. That means I have to wash my scrubs in hot water almost single day, sometimes putting them through twice if the stains don’t come out. Plus, I may have to wash more than one set in a day if I’ve had to change because of some unforeseen incident causing a stain (i.e. blood or vomit or whatever!). My husband is a doctor and the same is true for his lab coat…we have to wash it daily and the sleeves are a mess and I’m sure covered in germs.

    I have to say I do more laundry then the average person. I can wear any color at work. But even the darker colors stain if you dont pre-treat them.Pluss I have 5 people in the house with a uniform of some type. So yes I do alot of laundry.

    I don’t think I necessarily do more loads, but maybe BIGGER loads! :)
