How Do I Store a Hat?

Submitted by on January 29, 2011 – 6:03 pm One Comment

If youÔÇÖre like so many of our customers at Hats Plus, one hat just wonÔÇÖt do. Before you know it, you have several hats, and your spouse, parents or roommate is telling you to put some of them away.

Storing a hat is actually a good idea to help extend its life. It helps to keep it from getting too dirty or dusty and minimizes exposure to other elements that might harm it.

The ideal way to store a hat is in hat box. Place it upside down in the box. This will help keep the brim from flattening out. If your hat has a snap brim, make sure the brim is snapped up all the way around the hat. This helps the brim to keep its shape. It also helps to keep it from flattening out if it somehow gets dropped or flipped and restored right-side up.

Store the box on a clean, flat and dry surface. Remember that heat and moisture help to shrink hats. Keep your hat from being stored in the sun or near a heating vent.

Even if you donÔÇÖt have a hat box, just follow these simple rules, and your hat should be okay on top of a closet shelf or some other place safe from children, pets, etc.
