Hats have a variety of benefits, but they can often get sweat stains on your head, so they must be washed regularly. Many people like to wear hats, but few know how to clean them. Here, I have summed up a hat cleaning method, mainly for baseball caps and knitted hats.

How to maintain the shape of a baseball cap when storing it

Each baseball cap has its own fixed shape because special materials are used to hold the cap during production.

So when you don’t wear a hat, you should put your baseball cap in a proper size box and remember to keep it in a dry place. This will prevent dampness from damaging the shape of your baseball cap.

If you have a lot of caps, the hat is unfolded and then placed on the hat holder, to keep the shape.
