Hat Question

Hello,

How does everyone clean their hat? I just looked at mine the other day and realized that it really can't be considered white anymore. I have heard of using dish soap but don't know if that would damage it or not.

I've heard that you can use "sneaker shampoo", dishwashing liquid, or even white toothpaste. I've never had to try any of them, though.

We always use liquid shoe whitening to keep the colour perfect.

Its nice to see my cadet experience coming in handy for Highland dancing :] You can use white or clear shoe polish to protect it from future dirt. Also, I've heard tooth paste works well for cleaning them? I used whitening toothpaste to clean my figure skates and it worked really well!

Well the results are in....

I First tried the dish soap and it did seem to get some of the discolouration out. I then tried a Magic Eraser and it got a little bit more dirt out. The overall effect is my hat is a bit cleaner but you can definatly tell that it isn't as white as it used to be. Thanks for your suggestions!
