Make NHS Scrub Bags

Home » News » Make NHS Scrub Bags

I am currently making scrub bags for the NHS. from unwanted cotton sheets, covers, pillowcases and tablecloths. The scrub bags have to be the size of a pillowcase with a drawstring at the top. Scrubs, the plain clothes worn by medics when dealing with patients, are being used by an increasing number of NHS staff as part of their personal protective equipment and changed more frequently in order to stop the spread of Covid-19. The bags enable staff to take off their scrubs, put them in the bag, fasten with the drawstring without touching the clothes, and then put the whole bag into the washing machine.

If you would like to make some, or have spare cotton fabric that can be washed at 60 degrees, also reels of thread that are not wanted, would be welcome, please get in touch. I pass them on to a lady in Bierton who is collecting them for the NHS.

My contact details are Sue Kirk: 77 Aylesbury Rd, Bierton. Tel.01296 415312. To watch a 5 minute video on how to make them, click here.
