Tips for Straw Hat Care

By Judy Gordon


Hats are like anything else in life; if you want them to look good, you'll have to care for them.

Here are some tips:

  1. Keep "good" hats in a hatbox, on a hook or on the top shelf of your closet.
  2. Always stuff the crown with tissue paper or keep them on a head form.
  3. Keep all hats away from extended periods of time in the sun. It will dry out straws, causing breakage.
  4. Never wear a hat in the rain unless it is expressly intended for it.
  5. You can use an iron set on number three to repair damage to flat brim straw hats. While keeping the iron moving, use your fingers to maneuver the straw back to its original shape. Do not use on high heat, as it will burn the straw.
  6. To remove dirty marks from straw, use a cloth dampened with water and mild detergent (always test on an inconspicuous area first). Go over the spot rapidly and then press it dry with another piece of cloth.
