How to clean your baseball cap

Start by brushing the hat with the hat brush or use a clean tooth brush. Use light brush strokes. By doing this you are removing the debris or dirt that is on the surface of the hat. 

Step 2

Spray the hat with the cleaning solution

Next, saturate the cap with the cleaning deodorizer solution. You can also use a mixture of warm water and soap to achieve the same results. Make sure to spray underneath the brim as well. Per the instructions of the bottle - you want to let the solution sit for 10 minutes so it can penetrate the fibers.

Step 3

Brush the hat

Brush the hat once more in a circular motion. Be cautious while going over the logo. Focus on the spots with high dirt and stain areas such as the sweat band. 

Step 4

Let it air dry

Not much direction here, just set the hat down and let it air dry. 

Step 5

Use lint roller 

Use a lint roller to remove any left over debris the hat collected during the drying process. 

Step 6 

Spray water & stain repellent 

If you would like extra protection then lightly spray your hat with the water & stain repellent. You spent all this time cleaning the hat, you might as well use it!
Now, your revamped cap is ready to proudly join your collection ‚Äď a testament to your DIY skills and how fantastic it turned out as if you bought it from a team shop!
