CHECK THE TAG


Baseball caps made before 1983 were not repaired to provide tags. However, the trend has changed; if your baseball cap is made after 1983, then there is a big chance that it has a tag. Check the tag for cleaning instructions.

FILL THE BOWL OR SINK WITH WATER


Fill the bowl or sink you intend using to wash your baseball with warm water (NOTE: Do not use hot water). Having done this, add adequate laundry detergent to the water. It is important you avoid using detergent that have bleaching agents as one of its ingredient.

PRE-TREAT AREAS WITH STAINS


If you notice that your baseball cap have some noticeable stains, it is advisable you pre-treat those areas before soaking. Add a drop or two of solvent based products or a shampoo, and scrub gently with a toothbrush or a small or medium-sized brush. (NOTE: Treat the areas with images, logos, symbols or stitching with utmost care.

SOAK UP THE BASEBALL CAP


Leave the cap to soak up for about 2-3 hours, and check it out later. In case you notice any area with stains, repeat the previous step.

RINSE YOUR BASEBALL CAP WITH WARM WATER


Another process in washing a baseball cap is by rinsing it with a warm water when you are done with removing the stains on the cap. Do this immediately you remove the baseball cap from the soapy water. This is to prevent suds from settling into the cap.

SUN DRY THE BASEBALL CAP


The final step in cleaning a baseball cap is by sun drying it. You can sun dry it in a container or on the line.
