Sometimes, you just need to wash a cap. Whether your headwear is getting dusty and dirty or you’ve been working out in the yard and just want to freshen up your look, washable caps is by hand is fast, easy and effective.

Place the cap in a sink of cold tap water.

If your goal is to handwash your hat, you’ll want to use a sink with a drain. The drain makes it easier for the water to flow out of the sink so that you don’t have to keep refilling it throughout the process. If you don’t have access to a drain, consider using a bucket instead because this will allow you to pour out excess water after each wash cycle is complete (which will help cut down on time).

Gently work the shampoo or detergent into the cap with your fingers.

Gently work the shampoo or detergent into the cap with your fingers. Don’t rub too hard—you don’t want to damage your cap or make it stiffer. However, if you’re having trouble getting it clean and there’s a lot of buildup from sweat, dirt and grime, you can use a soft brush such as an old toothbrush with soft bristles to scrub out the stains.

Rinse the hat and let it soak for 15 minutes to remove any remaining soap.

Now that you’ve washed your cap in the sink, you need to rinse it under cold water. This will remove any remaining soap and make sure no residue is left behind on the hat.

After rinsing, place your cap inside a sink or tub with cool tap water and let it soak for 15 minutes so that any remaining soap can be removed from its fibers.

Drain the cold water from the sink, then fill with clean, lukewarm water.

Drain the cold water from the sink, then fill it with clean, lukewarm water. Use this to remove all traces of soap from your cap. After washing and rinsing it in lukewarm water, use fresh cold water to rinse out any remaining soap.

Repeat Steps 2 and 3 until the water runs clear.

  • Repeat Steps 2 and 3 until the water runs clear.
  • When you think you’ve removed all of the soap, wring out your cap one more time, place it back in the sink with clean water, and repeat Step 2 again. If there is still a residue on the inside of your cap that doesn’t come off when washed by hand, toss it in the washing machine for some additional cleaning power!

Remove the cap from the sink, and gently squeeze out any excess water.

Once you’re done rinsing, remove the cap from your sink. Gently squeeze out any excess water with your hands and lay it flat on a towel, making sure to keep the brim of the hat facing up. You can hang it upside down if you want to help remove more moisture from inside of it, too!

If you don’t have time to wait for your hat to dry on its own, place it in front of a fan or blow dryer with low heat until it is completely dry.

Lay the hat brim-down on a thin towel or washcloth.

Lay the hat brim-down on a thin towel or washcloth. While you’re waiting for it to air dry, be sure not to wear the cap outside in the rain or snow, as this will cause mildew to form inside your cap and ruin it. Also avoid using a hair dryer—the heat will warp the shape of your hat and alter its appearance.

Don’t try to rush things by drying your hat in front of a fan either; this could result in heat damage.

Roll up the towel, starting at the cap center.

Roll up the towel, starting at the cap center. Use a thin towel—a kitchen or bath towel is too bulky and will be hard to roll. Roll gently, not tightly; if you squeeze it too hard, water will seep out of the cap’s seams. Don’t roll so much that you press water into the crown (top) of your hat; this can cause mildew problems later on.

Continue rolling until you’ve removed as much moisture as possible from the hat.

  • Continue rolling until you’ve removed as much moisture as possible from the hat.
  • Use a blow dryer on its lowest setting to help remove any remaining moisture, but be careful not to let it get too hot. If necessary, switch to a lower setting or move the dryer farther away so that you don’t overheat your cap and damage it. You can also use a fan if one is available in your room or apartment (don’t worry—the bubbles will go away once everything’s dry).
  • Once all of this is done, hang up your hat somewhere out of direct sunlight and allow it to air-dry completely before wearing again

Conclusion

As we’ve seen, washing your baseball cap by hand is a simple process. It does take some time and effort, but it’s worth it to avoid damaging your cap with harsh chemicals or machines that could cause damage to the stitching or seams. If you follow these steps correctly, there’s no reason why your hat shouldn’t stay looking good for years!
