Hats shoud always be cleaned since they are in close contact with skin and hair. And if you want to use it for a long time,you should clean it the right way.

Today, I will share the super easy way to clean hats and caps.

1. Use a horsehair brush to remove dust

As long as it’s infected with bacteria, with humidity and temperature, it will become moldy, the biggest fatal point of hat.

Prepare a special "horse hair brush" for hat cleaning. After returning home, gently brush away the dust, so that hats can be worn for long without bacteria.

PS: This method is also suitable for coats that cannot be washed frequently.

2. Pick up the tape and stick the dust off

Hats made of wool-like materials should not be washed, as wool will shrink. You can use "wide tape" to stick to the surface dust. Pay attention, slowly and gently because too rough will destroy the hat structure, causing deformation or damage, which is worthless.

Also, insist on cleaning every day and not wait until the end, it may be too late to clean again after accumulation!

3. Use powder clean for sweatband

The most common thing each time I take off the hat is that there is dirt inside the hat, especially for women's hats. The sweatband of the inner ring will be stained with liquid foundation, easy to breed bacteria. You can clean the inside of the hat with "Powder Stain", especially the part that comes into contact with the head, be sure to clean it carefully.

After cleaning, hang the hat in a ventilated place and air dry, do not expose it to sunlight or it will change color. Pay more attention to small details and keep the hat for long!

4. Choose the right dry cleaner

What to do if the hat ends up getting moldy?

Do not throw it directly into the washing machine! ! !

According to the washing label on the hat to confirm the fabric composition, and choose the correct "dry cleaner".

Remove the decorations on the hat, spray the dry cleaner 10 cm away from the hat, a small amount 2-3 times, and then wipe it back and forth with a damp cloth. If the stain is too heavy, repeat the operation several times.

Remember to fill the whole hat with a dry cloth after finishing, lay it flat to dry in the shade, and keep the hat shape to prevent deformation.

5. Only "dry and moisture-proof"

To brush off the dust, wash off the dirt, let it dry in the sun for a while, then wrap it in paper, put it in a hat box, store it in a ventilated and dry place, and put a desiccant in the storage box to prevent moisture.

The correct washing method for normal hat is:

1. If there is any decoration on the cap, it should be removed first.

2. Before cleaning, it is advisable to soak it with water and neutral detergent.

3. Gently scrub with a soft brush.

4. Fold the hat into four petals, gently shake off the water, and do not use a washing machine for dehydration.

5. Scrub the sweatband part of the inner ring (the part in contact with the head ring) several times to thoroughly wash away sweat and bacteria. Of course, if you choose an antibacterial and deodorant material, this step can be omitted.

6. Spread out the hat, stuff it with an old towel, and lay it flat to dry under the shadow and do not hang to dry.

The correct way to wash special hat is:

1. The leather cap can be wiped clean with onion slices, or wiped with a cloth dipped in gasoline, which can realize a good washing effect.

2. After washing the knitted hat, it’s best to fill the hat with crumpled paper and cloth, then dry it.

3. The stains on the fine felt hat can be scrubbed with a mixture of ammonia water and the same amount of alcohol. Dampen a silk cloth with this mixture before scrubbing. Do not get the hat too wet, otherwise it will easily lose its shape.

4.Do not wash wool hats, because wool will shrink. If the hat is stained with dust or pet hair, use wide-faced tape and fold it over your fingers, then stick it on your fingers to remove dust. The wool hat does not need to be cleaned each time, but it is easy to shorten the life. If it is necessary to clean it, dry cleaning is the best.
