7 Ways To Clean Your Baseball Hat

Baseball hats are as American as the Fourth of July. These hats are as good for recreation as they are for sports, but they do collect their fair share of dirt and sweat. While that may be a badge of honor on the mound, that grimy peak may not look as good in the bleachers. So, how do you get a Baseball hat clean? 

  1. HAND WASH

Always hand wash your hats. This cleaning method helps prevent potential damage caused by machine washing, preserving the shape and materials of the hat. Fill a large container or bucket with water. Make sure it has enough space for the hat to be fully submerged.

  1. DETERGENT

Add a dash of mild detergent to a bucket of water and stir. Any detergent that you use will be fine. 

  1. REMOVING STAINS 

If you have tough stains on the hat, use a stain remover and a toothbrush to pre-treat. The best stain remover is Grandma’s Secret Spot remover. 

  1. SOAKING PROCESS

Soak hats for 15 to 20 minutes in the water/detergent solution to clean. Soak for up to an hour for a deeper clean. You want to make sure you get all the unwanted dirt out. 

  1. RINSING 

Rinse the hat under cool water to remove any soap residue. You never want excess soap left in your hat. 

  1. DRY AND SHAPE 

Place the hat over a bowl to dry and shape. You can also stuff it with a towel to dry and help keep its shape. Making sure you keep the shape is a big deal. 

  1. HAT CAGES 

Hat cages also come in handy for drying and storing.
