    With the summer getting closer and closer, baseball caps are more and more popular. As they are very prone to sweat stains, let us guide you through some DIY ways of tackling this problem.

    Stubborn stains

    As the temperatures get higher, the inner edges of the caps begin to stain. That never looks good, especially on white and generally bright ones. Luckily there are some home-made ways of tackling this yellowish problem.

    #1 Drying

    It is only the caps with the soft visor which won’t get deformed. You need to select the hand-wash mode and put the cap on something round to dry it (for example a jar, a ball or a dummy’s head). You can also fill the crown with a towel- everything to preserve its shape.

    #2 Hand-washing a baseball cap

    White baseball caps and those which don’t lose color could be hand-washed. Immerse them in water with some shampoo or washing-up liquid. Rub the stains with a cloth or a brush. Finally wash them in clean water and dry them.

    #3 Washing baseball caps in cold water

    Caps that lose color have to be handled with care. To prevent the loss of color wash them with your hands in cold water. Don’t leave them in the water for more than 5 – 10 minutes.

    #4 Washing baseball caps with imprints

    Any imprints on your cap also require extra care. They have to be cleaned very carefully and only when some visible stains are present. Any space in between zirconia or studs needs to be cleaned with a toothbrush.
