How To Care For & Store Your Hat


What are the key tips for caring for your hat?

It is important to keep hats away from direct sunlight as this can fade the color and damage the material. This is true for both wool and straw material.

Make sure to store the hat in a cool, dry place to avoid mildew and moisture damage.

When not wearing a hat, hang it up on a hat rack or use a hat storage box. Our travel hat boxes are both durable and breathable. It will protect your hat from the elements and humidity, making them one of the best travel hat box options for at home and on the road storage. Avoid using plastic bags to store hats as they can cause the fabric to become brittle and discolored.

If the hat has a wide brim, store it upside-down so the brim won't lose its shape. Should you find your brim has lost it's shape a minor steaming should fix it right up.

If the hat is made of fur, felt or wool, never use anything but a soft bristle brush or sponge to clean it. This will ensure you are removing unwanted dust without damaging the material.

For additional protection while wearing use a stain protectant spray. Be sure to spray the entire hat, including the underside of the brim, for maximum protection. This will give you a little extra time to get out of the rain if you find yourself in an unexpected shower.
