How do you clean your hat?


Recommended Posts

Suggestions?
I did a quick search and can't find this question, but don't think I'm the only one who has this problem... the sweat head. :idhitit:

What's the best way to wash/clean a standard golf hat? Mid summer I'll only go a few rounds before the stains start ruining my hats.

Any recommendations?

I had one of those hat racks forming the hat, I'd take detergent and toothbrush and scrub them, let them dry in the hat rack. You don't want to get the hat soaked but you can scrub them good, then splash a bit of water on them to rinse them off. I've done this with white hats with great results. :D

 

p.s. Being the "Good" guy that I am, "ALL" my hats are "WHITE". :hi:

I've washed my in a cold gentle cycle but then removed it before the spin cycle. I then rinse it out in the sink and let it dry on top of another hat. Spray some Shout or Spray and Wash and let it soak before you put it in the washer. Or I just go buy another one.

There is a plastic hat shaper found at most hat stores. You put your hat in the shaper, place it in the dishwasher and your hat comes out clean and keeps the size and shape.

 

Another way is to throw them in the washer with your clothes. Don't thow it in the dryer, it should be damp but not too wet. Wear it around the house until it dries. Actually feels pretty good if you wear it to the course on a hot day.

I've tried that, but they NEVER seem to get completely clean, and the shape/texture is always ruined afterward. I just rotate my dirty hat to "yard mowing duty", and use a different one. I get so many free hats from various sources, I never seem to have to buy any.

Rotate and then toss them after the season and buy a new one at the start. Usually with the decent colors TM has on their limited edition hats I just pick those up and replace them as I go. Even my treasured Auburn fitted baseball cap is dirty and I'll never clean it--it's not like it's a suit!

Oxyclean. Use enough to fill the little dispenser it comes with and let the hat soak in the "Oxied" water overnight. It brought back to life a favorite hat from dear alma mater that I thought was gone to the sweaty, smelly disgusting graveyard. Nearly back to 100%, but then again, as much of a lost cause as I thought it was, "near" is pretty dang good :idhitit:

I guess I must be the bad guy Mac since all my caps I usually wear are black. :idhitit:

 

I usually handwash my caps with some laundry detergent in a bucket. I use one of these to hang them out to dry.

I have them drycleaned, which is only a few bucks and they keep the shape :yahoo: . Sometimes the SPF sunscreens bleach out the brim, so I toss those or wear them to practice.

 

You're kidding right? You can actually have golf hats dry cleaned???
