Hat Cleaning Instructions

Look, we could write a long, detailed post with super fancy methods for cleaning your hat like sticking it in the dishwasher or getting a herd of alley cats to lick it spiffy. cats cleaning hats

Actually, maybe we should write that post … stay tuned … But, for now we don’t need to craft an encyclopedia because Concept California makes it easy. Read on to find out how: 

But first, since this post is supposed to be a page here’s a hat joke:

Hat Joke

Question: What did the hat say to the tie?

Answer: “You hang here and I’ll go on a head.”

IMPORTANT NOTE: We’re out of jokes, so here’s a something quite interesting....

 

Okay, we’re back with answers how to actually clean your hat!

We use “Healable Microfiber” in all our hats, which means it passes our stringent testing for both breathability and washability. Cotton, wool, and other absorbent fabrics cling to the salt molecules from your sweat worse than Woogie from Something about Mary, which creates those opposite sex repelling white lines. Healable Microfiber, however, allows some of those salt molecules to hang out, but it won’t hold onto them. If we’re keeping the metaphor alive, Healable Microfiber is Mary’s Brett Favvv-ruh.


To wash your chill and unexpected cameo of a hat, run a little tap water over the fabric, rub lightly with your fingers, and away goes the sweat marks and other small, dirty molecules.


For a deep clean, simply rub a drop of dish, hand, or other prefered soap over the fabric and then rinse it out. And, because Concept California hats have plastic brims, don’t worry about them losing shape. 


 

Other Tips

Wash your hat regularly. If you let any hat get too dirty the marks can turn to stains and then we'll all be sad.

"But what if my hat is a “Woogie?”

Don’t worry, we have your back. Grab some catnip and head to the nearest alley. Or, check out these posts which have other good and more complex solutions.
