Straw hat comes in so many different sizes that everyone gets a practical use out of them. Eventually, the hat is going to get dirty at some point. If you’ve never cleaned one before, you might be confused about where to start. This guide shows you exactly how to clean your straw hat to make them look brand new!
Follow the steps ahead to clean a straw hat
Identify the material: Make sure the straw hat can be hand washed. A straw hat made up of Shantung, baku, and any other material can be washed by hand. Always check the label inside the brim of the hat.
Remove extras: Make sure to remove and trim or ribbons on the hat before you start cleaning straw hat. Remove the extras and hand wash them separately with a brush or dust them off.
Dust the hat: Brush the hat and get rid of dust and dirt on it. To do this, use a small soft brush, typically found at a makeup store. Don’t be too rough as the fabric material can easily be ruined.
Peroxide solution: Combine water and hydrogen peroxide in equal parts and mix them in a bowl. Either spray the solution on a cloth or dip the cloth in the solution to use. Wipe the hat and wipe off the dirt with the damp cloth.
Soap solution: Mix hot water and a tablespoon of liquid dish soap in a bowl. Just like the previous step, use a cloth to wipe off the dirt on the hat with the solution. Make sure you rub in a circular motion to get as much dirt as possible onto the cloth. Don’t soak the cloth completely in solution as you want it to be damp and not wet. Otherwise, it can harm the fabric of the hat.
Rinse: Before rinsing the hat with water, make sure it’s fine to do so by reading the label in the hat’s brim. Dip the cloth in a bowl of warm water and rub it on the hat.
Dry: To dry off the hat, store it in a cool place in a curved position to avoid ruining the style of the hat.
Follow the steps ahead to remove stains on a straw hat
Oil stains: spread over some talcum powder on the affected area and let it sit for 2 hours. Then use a brush to dust the powder.
Sweat stains: Ammonia works brilliantly in removing sweat stains. A half teaspoon of both water and ammonia can do the trick. By using a small brush, soak up the mixture and rub it on the stained area.
