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).


That's what I did the one time I washed a hat. ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I just buy new ones every other year. I got the mesh spring training hat for the Giants which fits like a glove everytime. This will be my 3rd year with it. What kind of hats are you saving?

do they sell curved ones? I wouldn't want to smoosh my lovingly curved brims!!

I have 2 fitted Cubs' hats I've never bothered washing- home and away. I am playing softball this year though and suspect they may get a bit grungy as everybody is starting up w/ the 'oh, you'll slide baby' trashtalking and stuff...

The brims will go right back to their original shape, as long as they're plastic. Those cardboard brims suck.

Agreed! But if you do use the dishwasher method with the hat shape keeper
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment
