I love baseball caps. Here’s why.
Baseball caps are my go-to mom accessory. They’re easy to wear with lots of different casual outfits – in fact, I have a post with 10 easy baseball cap outfits right here!
Are you cleaning your baseball hats?
When it’s hot and you’re wearing a hat, things get sweaty. And if you’re not washing your baseball caps regularly, they can irritate your forehead and even cause breakouts.
This hat form is a game-changer
I bought this hat washing form years ago for Philip (before I discovered my love of baseball caps), and it makes washing hats much less stressful when you know they’re not going to lose their shape.
A few notes about washing your baseball hats:
- Wash them with like colors so they don’t bleed on your other clothes or get bled on
- Wash with regular detergent – it works great!
- If your hat is cotton, it will probably shrink in the dryer. Let it air dry if you’re worried about shrinkage.
Washing hats by hand
If your hat has sections that cannot be washed (I have a hat with a leather strap), you can absolutely hand wash them!
Use a clean washcloth, warm, soapy water (I use Dawn dish soap), and spot clean.
No one wants a stinky, sweaty hat, so do yourself a favor and clean those baseball caps every few wears!
How I store my hats
I have a cupboard in my closet where I store my hats. For wide-brim hats, I lay them flat on the bottom of the cupboard, but if you need them off the floor, hanging them against a wall is a great option. You just want the brim to be against a flat surface so it doesn’t get bent out of shape.
For my baseball hats, I stack them on top of each other. But hanging on a wall is another great option!
