    As HOT as its been lately, Ive been a sweating pritty bad. Even though I bathe often my hat will start stinkin. Ive gone thru 3 hats in two weeks and wash them with dish soap. Is there any "hat deodorant" or fancy perfume :laugh: I can use to keep things fresh

    Carry clothes pins in your back pocket and slip one over your nose anytime it gets bad, also keep some handy for your customers. :laugh:

    I take my hat to the shower with me. It's the first thing I wash with really hot water. Get the inside real good, around the sweatband. I don't use any soap, just hot water. Then I let it drip dry over nite and it's ready the next morning. It may be the type of hat your wearing or maybe you're not getting all the soap out, dish soap is super concentrated you know.

    to me, the washing the hat in the shower idea at night is a great one. even if it isnt totally dry in the mornin, it'll help keep ya a bit cooler.

    They sell that plastic thing caled a ball cap buddy that you put your hat on and can then wash in your dishwasher or wash machine without tearing it up.I think wak-Mart has it.

    Throw it in the washing machine with your clothes. Most caps now have plastic in the bill so it will be fine.
