I have a couple of baseball caps that I really like but they are getting a little(a lot) funky.. they are both white with some color in the front. I usually use the dishwasher, but I'm wondering if there is a better way. (What if I put laundry soap in the dishwasher...? Would it be too soapy? Or perhaps some bleach..? or would that toast the colors? Hmm, guess I should stayed awake in Home-ec those years ago in HS [:D] edit: And no, I don't want to use the washing machine because it severly f0cks up the bill...

I soak mine in the sink for an hour, then scrub them.

I wash mine by hand using a scrub brush and laundry soap.Hold it under warm running water then hang it on the showerhead to dry.Works great and retains shape.

I throw mine in with the laundry. I've had my main Boston hat since 1984, washed it that way about a six thousand times and to date it's still perfect with no frays or fuzz.

I've heard of people washing then in dishwasher, and I've even seen a device that's shaped like a hat and it holds the damn hats so you can wash them in the dishwasher.

Damn, never thought of that... I'll keep that in mind. As for the dishwasher, it works great normally (but these are REALLY dirty). after the cycle, I toss 'em in the oven @150 degrees for an hour, no shit[:D]

I use the cap holder things mentioned by Slidestop and the diswasher with dish soap. Caps come out looking like new and the bill isn't messed up.

(i've found that out after using them a few times) These holders only cost a buc . They keep the hat in shape and shape is important when it comes to hats. You don't wanna look like a gobber with a messed up hat now do ya ! I just used regular laundry soap , if there's a heavy sweat stain on your white hats .Scrub it with a old tooth brush dipped in soap . Your hats will come out looking new .It always worked for me . Good luck Use the WASHER not the dishwasher SaFe ShOoTi Jerry [/blue][/b][sniper]
