Darker colors tend to show the salty sweats stains more. When I wear a darker hat, I always rinse my hats will some water and let air dry. It does a really good job of preventing these stains.

I throw my hat in the bathroom sink as soon as I get home after every round or practice session and let it soak for 30 minutes to an hour. Then take it out and let it air dry. This gets the sweat out and it's fresh and ready to go for the next round. In the Florida heat I'll sweat so much one round can ruin a hat if I don't do this.
Yes, the dishwasher is the absolute best way to clean the hat. Take some liquid dishwashing soap and rub it into stains with soft brush or toothbrush and put it in top rack. form it with a hand towel and let it sit out and dry.
Trust me, way better than clothes washer as the temperture is scorching and the stains and all bacteria are gone. It will be a brand new hat.
