I have a really cool Royals hat and a couple others that are dingy around the band... and they need to be cleaned...

I typically use hot water and the bathroom sink to attempt to clean them, but the band always stretches out...

There has to be an optimal way to clean these ball caps?

How do you do it?

Smart ass answers are indeed welcome. :clap:

You can use a plastic "Ball Cap Buddy" and wash them by themselves in the top rack of your dishwasher. Be careful if the hat is wool. If wool, wash it in the washing machine (in a ball cap buddy) with woolite on gentle setting.

In the dishwasher, don't use any soap with lemon or orange or whatever, that's bad for the fabric. Use the quick wash setting. Don't put any dishes in either, just the cap.

Have you actually used one of these? Doesn't it **** up the bill? Do you put regular dishwasher soap in it?

do you then hang it to dry for an extended period of time or something?

Thanks for your insights, guys... I suppose I could have fucking googled it, but it would be funner to ask you fine folks.

The ball cap buddy in theory sounds like a good idea... how does it work in REALITY though? It seems like it will fuck up the crown of the hat or something...

I've used one. It doesn't damage the bill. I just use a tiny bit of soap. Take it out and hang it up when it's done.

Actually it preserves the crown of the hat. Let it air dry afterwards, and you can re-roll the bill if you like to do that. If you're one of these young punks who leave the bill totally flat, it will stay that way.

Real men roll the bill on their ball cap. Like a major leaguer!

"Also, if you weren't such a greasy bastard, your hats would stay fresh..."

you guys could have said something along those lines.

Sadly, this is true... but I have a Jayhawks hat or two that I'm sure I can salvage. :D

Take a dump in a bowel of water. Cook it for 3 straight hours, grab a towel then dip inside the bowel. Use the damp part of the towel to clean your hats. It works. True story.

I've found that a fine sandpaper is really good at getting the bloodstains out, but if-

I see these young punks wearing ballcaps backward. Only catchers and welders are allowed to do that.

The direction one's hat is pointing generally coincides with the direction their life is going.

I put mine in the kitchen sink to soak in woolite. Not harsh on your lids.

When my hats get dirty I give them to my wife and that seems to work pretty good. They show back up on my hat shelf nice and clean. Almost like new.

I do believe she uses one of those hat deals previously mentioned. http://www.wards5and10.com/bacapclforwa.html

I have one of those "BCBs" and do it like you say. I spray them down good with "Simple Green" first though, as mine usually have some greasy finger prints on them. It works great.
