What Is The Best Way To Clean A Licensed Baseball Cap?

Whether you’re wearing it to support your favourite NHL, MLB, or CFL team, or wearing one to protect your head from the sun or rain, a baseball cap can get dirty quickly. Though having a few scuffs and marks can be a sign of well-loved NHL caps, you’ll be glad to know that there are a ton of ways to give your baseball hats a quick clean.

In this article, we’ll cover all of the ways you can give your baseball cap a good clean without damaging them or affecting their authenticity.


Before You Begin Cleaning

Before you begin scrubbing your baseball cap, there are a few things you’re going to need. These include:


The Worst Methods Of Cleaning A Baseball Cap

Before we get into how to clean your CFL baseball caps properly, we’ll go over a few mistakes people make. Whether it's a ‘47 Clean Up, MVP, or 39THIRTY cap, you’ll want to keep it in good condition, so take note of what not to do below! Common mistakes people make include: Washing it in the washing machine - People tend to think they can clean their baseball cap like any other clothing, but if you want to keep your favourite Toronto Blue Jays cap in perfect condition, it is better to wash your cap by hand. The washing machine and tumble dryer are likely to leave your hat misshapen. Washing it in the dishwasher - It is a common myth that you should wash your favourite Montreal Expos baseball hat in the dishwasher. Dishwashing soaps tend to have bleach, which will undoubtedly ruin the pristine condition of your hat!


The Best Methods Of Cleaning A Baseball Cap

So now you know what not to do, we’ve made a list of what you should do when washing your baseball cap. Take a look below to find out more about each method.


Washing The Cap By Hand

Washing your best baseball caps by hand is the only way to preserve their shape and keep them in good condition. To wash it by hand, you should: Fill your sink or basin with warm soapy water. Soak your cap for a few minutes, and then swish it around in the water. You may need to replace the water if the lid is very dirty. Take it out and let it dry on a melon, bunched-up towel, or another item that will help the cap to hold its shape.


Soaking The Cap

Soaking your cap is an excellent way of getting rid of the layer of dirt on the outside. To soak it, fill a bucket, sink, or basin with warm and soapy water. You may want to leave your cap in the water for up to ten minutes before checking it. You can soak it in new water if it remains dirty.


Getting Into The Tougher Stains

If you’ve washed and soaked your cap, but there are still stains ruining the logo of your New York Yankees hat, you may need to return with some stain remover. This is where your old toothbrush will come in handy! We recommend testing your cleaning solution somewhere on the cap that can’t be seen, just in case of damage. If it is all fine, then you can go in and scrub those tough stains. Remember to rinse thoroughly afterward.
