Materials Needed

Before you start washing your baseball cap, you will need to gather the following materials: a basin or sink, a mild detergent, a soft bristled brush, lukewarm water and a towel. Now that you have gathered all the necessary materials, you are ready to start washing your baseball cap.

Gather your materials

To wash a baseball cap, you will need the following materials:

-A sink
-Mild laundry detergent (or dish soap)
-A soft toothbrush or cleaning brush
-Warm water

Optional: fabric softener, vinegar

Pre-treat the Cap

It is best to pre-treat the baseball hat before you wash it. You can use a small amount of laundry detergent on any spots or stains on the hat. If the hat is very dirty, you can soak it in a sink of warm water and laundry detergent for a few minutes before washing.

Pre-treat any areas with stains

If your cap is very dirty or has any areas with set-in stains, you will need to pre-treat these areas before washing the entire cap. To do this, dampen the stained area with water and then rub in a small amount of laundry detergent. Allow the detergent to soak into the fabric for a few minutes before proceeding to the next step.

Wash the Cap

Washing a baseball cap is a fairly easy process. You can wash it by hand or in the washing machine. If you wash it by hand, you will need to use a mild detergent and warm water. If you wash it in the washing machine, you will need to use a gentle cycle and cold water.

Fill a sink or basin with water

Fill a sink or basin with water. The water should be warm, but not too hot. Add a small amount of mild detergent or soap to the water and swish it around to create suds.

Add detergent

If your cap is only lightly soiled, you can add a small amount of mild detergent to the water. Gently swirl the cap around in the water and let it soak for a few minutes. If your cap is very dirty, you may need to pre-treat it with a stain remover before washing.

Submerge the cap and agitate

To wash a baseball cap, start by submerging the cap in cold water and squishing it around to help loosen any dirt or sweat. If the cap is especially dirty, you can add a little mild detergent to the water. Next, use your hands to agitate the fabric of the cap and work up a lather. Finally, rinse the cap thoroughly in cold water to remove any soap residue.

Rinse the cap

Use cold water to rinse the bulk of the dirt and grime from your cap. If your cap is really dirty or smells bad, you can add a small amount of mild laundry detergent to the water and swish it around before rinsing.

Dry the Cap

The first thing you need to do is make sure that the baseball cap is dry. If it is wet, then you will need to wait for it to dry before you proceed to the next step. You can use a fan to help speed up the drying process.

Lay the cap out to air dry

Lay your baseball cap on a clean, dry towel. If the sweatband is particularly wet, you may want to blot it with a second towel. Resist the urge to wring out the cap or put it in the dryer, as this can cause the fabric to stretch or warp. Instead, simply let it air dry at room temperature. Depending on the humidity and temperature of your home, this can take anywhere from a few hours to a full day.

Use a hairdryer on a low setting

Lay your baseball cap upside down on a flat surface. Plug in your hair dryer and set it to the low heat setting. Hold the dryer about six inches away from your baseball cap and move it around so that the heat evenly dries the inside of the cap. Once the inside of the cap is dry, turn it right side up and dry the outside of the hat.
