Because they are fragile, try cleaning a baseball cap without water first. Sprinkle the inside of the cap with baking soda and let it sit overnight. The next day, shake the soda out of the cap. Next, rub any spots on the cap with a little dry detergent to remove them. Brush it away and see what’s left. If your cap is still dirty, move on to the instructions on how to wash a ball cap.
To wash a ball cap, begin by pretreated any spots on the inside and outside with a little Ivory soap. Rub it in well with you damp fingers and then rinse the cap under cool running water. Shake the hat out to remove any excess water. Then allow the cap to dry out of direct sunlight. If you like, you can stuff the cap with a hand towel to make sure it keeps it shape as it dries.
