Any problems give me a call (Jacqui 07725 835461)
It will be an opportunity to have a natter and perhaps show any craft projects you have been working on, you can share any recepies you have tried during lockdown. I need advice on why my rock cakes are always too dry.
If you want some additional instruction here is a you tube tuturial (Skip to 1.25mins to avoid the waffle)
As fabic becomes harder to source I have been researching alternatives. Local Care Homes are also have a need for scrubs and I suspect the need will be with us for a while.
This specification is from the Dudley NHS Group website
Making scrubs in the correct type and weight of fabric is important. The requirements are:
· 100% cotton or up to 50/50 polyester/cotton only
· Material weight 115gsm
· Plain, dark colours preferred (patterned material is harder to inspect for staining/damage)
· If you can’t get plain dark fabric, lighter colours or even patterns will be accepted
· Must be washable at a minimum of 60 degrees centigrade
. No brushed cotton
So, it seems that good quality bedlinen, that can be washed at 60 degrees centigrade, is the bottom line. Too thin, too loosely woven and it is not very useful. The higher the threadcount the better. Somewhere else I read said not white!
I have found this website offering a very simplified FREE pattern for scrubs that is measured out rather than needing a paper pattern (thus no printing). I’m going to try it out today.
