How to perfectly wash a baseball cap without a machine: instructions
It's time to put your summer baseball caps away until next season, but you should wash them thoroughly beforehand. You might be tempted to just throw the dirty item in the washing machine and run a normal cycle.
It is better to wash baseball caps by hand so as not to spoil the structure of the product. House Digest has told you how to perfectly wash a baseball cap without a machine.
There is no need to buy special powders and bleach. The most effective method requires only warm water and detergent. It's important not only to clean the stains, but also to prevent the surface from fading and discoloration. Chemical bleaches and conditioners can leave noticeable stains and yellow marks.
Hand washing does not take much time, so you can do other household chores while waiting for the cap to "soak" off the dirt. By following the simple steps below, you will clean your favorite product with high quality and without damage or deformation.
Step 1. Fill a container with lukewarm water - not too hot - and add one tablespoon of regular laundry detergent.
Step 2. Pre-treat stubborn stains. You can use store-bought detergents or resort to folk life hacks. Soda, salt, and vinegar will quickly dissolve dirt, but you need to use them carefully on delicate fabrics and test them on an inconspicuous area of the product first. The easiest way is to mix a little warm water with any powder and rub the mixture into the stain with an old toothbrush.
Step 3. After you have treated large stains, soak the cap and leave it for at least two hours. Then remove the soap residue by rinsing the cap with clean water. Do not twist too much to avoid deforming the product. Allow the water to drain naturally. Pat the cap dry with a towel and place it in a warm and dry place. If possible, dry the product outdoors.
