...but how do you wash a baseball cap? Can you just toss it in the washer? Will that damage it? I have no idea. Serves me right for getting a white cap. Help? :-o

Most hat shops actually have cap cleaner that you can buy. It's a little bottle with a little scrubber attached, and you can just put it on and scrub. It works pretty good. You probably don't want to just throw it in the washer, I've had bad things happen when I've done that. Anyway, I had the same problem with the white cap...

Took one to a drycleaner once and they told me to run it through the dishwasher (top rack). Just check if your detergent has bleach in it if you care about that. Mine was bright yellow and now it's pretty ugly.

Running it through the dishwasher works and you should probably put it in by itself. They also make plastic, hat-shaped things that you put that hat on and it keeps it's shape. I actually found that shaper thing at a $1 store in a mall a couple of years ago, but you can get it at Lids (for a few $ more ofcourse).

I actually had much the same question.

I'm probably never going to buy another light colored hat.
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.
