Hat: Advice And Maintenance

In order to answer the questions you have about maintaining and preserving your bucket hat kids, cap, or beanie, we offer you some basic advice here.

Well-maintained headgear can benefit other children who have become too small for your baby, your boy, or your girl.



General Case

To store your child's hat, whether it is made of felt, fabric, or straw, it must be placed upside down, that is to say on the cap so that the brim does not touch any surface. Indeed, it may deform if it is placed upright on a flat surface. The idea is to store it in a frog bucket hat box, but if you run out of space, or you don't have a box, it is best to put it upside down on a shelf.

You may use a little piece of foam to place inside the interior skirt of the hat if it appears too big or moves around on the child's head to give them greater comfort.

When it comes to cleaning your child's hat, it's important to use either a hat brush or a soft-bristled clothes brush, and run it over it, always rotating counter-clockwise. show.

If your child's hat gets wet, shake it to remove excess water. It is important to let it dry, and placed it upside down, at room temperature. Indeed, excessive heat (for example, near a radiator or a fireplace) risks contracting the hat and therefore causing it to shrink and deform.


A bumpy, crumpled hat can happen. It is simple to reshape the cheap bucket hats. To do this, first stuff the hat with white tissue paper (to avoid color transfer), then present it over the steam of a pan of boiling water or a kettle (be careful to protect it well your hands so as not to burn yourself!!!). The cap thus softened, you can easily reform it. Then let it dry at room temperature.

Also, remember to waterproof your child's hat: you can use a spray for leather clothing or shoes. Spray the spray at least 20 cm from the hat evenly. It is necessary to avoid the formation of drops and never rub if the material of the hat is wet. Then let the hat dry upside down (on the roof) at room temperature. Regular maintenance protects the hat from humidity and dust and restores its color.

Remove mold stains: remove them with water containing a few drops of ammonia. To do this, first, run a soft clothes brush (or hat brush) over the hat in a counter-clockwise direction. Then, soak the brush in ammonia water and put the brush in rotation again.


Wool Or Hair Felt Hats:

To clean your child's felt hat, brush the crown and brim with a soft-bristled clothes brush, always counter-clockwise. To store, lay it upside down on a shelf or in a hatbox so it doesn't become deformed.

In case the hat gets wet, shake it to remove excess water and let it dry at room temperature on its roof. Then, when it's dry, brush it counter-clockwise.

We detach a felt hat with steam. First stuff the hat with white tissue paper to prevent it from deforming and present it over a pan of boiling water or a kettle, brushing it counter-clockwise of a watch. For grease stains, you can use a powdered cleaning product (such as the trichlo substitute, or Terre de Sommières, which is more ecological!). Dust the stains, let dry, then remove the excess, and brush in rotation.



Straw Hats:

Straw hats need moisture to stay flexible. This is why it is important to store your child's straw hat in a humid room during the winter, to preserve it well. Heated houses are not suitable for him because his fibers may dry out very quickly.

For example, if your daughter's straw hat is dirty, first try removing the stains by lightly brushing a soft cloth counterclockwise. If the stains persist, you can use a disposable baby or face wipe to remove them. If that's not enough, soak a soft cloth in soap and water, spot clean, then rinse the hat and dry it quickly so the fibers don't stay wet too long.

If the straw hat has grease stains or is very dirty, rub it with a soft cloth soaked in a paste made from a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and talc. Leave on for a few minutes and brush with a soft bristle brush to remove the paste.


Paper Hats:

Unlike straw hats, paper hats must be kept in a dry place, away from any humidity so as not to deform.

For cleaning, prefer brushing with a soft cloth or wipe. Cleaning with soap and water is not recommended, but if you cannot do otherwise, be sure to dry the paper hat quickly to avoid deformation.

Velvet Hats:

We always favor brushing with a soft clothes brush to clean your child's velvet hat.

You can detach it by gently rubbing it with water to which a few drops of ammonia have been added. Then let it dry, and brush it dry counter-clockwise.


Cotton Or Woolen Hats:

When cleaning your child's cotton or wool hat, always hand wash.

And to remove traces of perspiration and preserve the colors of the hat, you can wash the hat by hand with cold water and a few drops of ammonia. Let the hat soak for a few minutes using a small brush to remove any signs of sweating, then soak the hat again in cold, clear water. Drain, dabbing excess water in a towel, and allow to dry at room temperature.;


If your child's cap gets wet, stuff it with white tissue paper (avoid newspaper or colored paper so that there is no color transfer), or a Spongey tissue. Let the cap dry on a flat surface, crown side down, at room temperature, away from any source of excessive heat to prevent it from deforming or shrinking.

A deformed cap can happen. Try to get it back into shape, stretching it over the steam of a pot of boiling water or a kettle, having first stuffed the cap with white tissue paper. Then let it dry at room temperature.



To Clean Your Child's Cap, Whatever The Material, You Have 2 Options.

• By hand (never in the washing machine…): to remove traces of sweat and perspiration, and preserve the colors of the cap, you can wash the cap by hand with cold water and a few drops of ammonia ( Caution: Except for synthetic materials, use soap and water instead!). Let the cap soak for a few minutes using a small brush to remove any signs of perspiration, then soak it again in cold, clear water. Drain it by dabbing it in a towel to remove excess water, and let it dry at room temperature.

• In the dishwasher (yes, you read correctly!): place the cap at the top (at the level of the washing of glasses), alone, in the emptied dishwasher, then turn on the washing with cold water only. Take the cap out, do not drain it but absorb the excess water with a towel, then let the cap dry at room temperature.



Regarding cups, their storage is easy in a closet or chest of drawers. However, it is essential to follow the cleaning instructions on the labels of the various products. Hand washing in cold water is always the best way to preserve your child's hat, but cleaning in the washing machine is sometimes possible, so don't hesitate.


Wool Hats:

Wool is a delicate and soft fiber. To preserve the shape and softness of a woolen hat or beret, it is very important to wash it in cold water and dry it flat, after having absorbed the excess water with the dryer. using a towel, to avoid any deformation.


Cotton Hats:

Cleaning in the washing machine is possible, but if you can wash by hand, it's better, in order to keep the colors bright and preserve the fibers.

Caps made of synthetic material (polyester, acrylic, etc.):

Always follow the washing instructions on the product label. It goes without saying that hand washing is always the preferred one.
