How Do You Clean a Synthetic Hat Without it Shrinking?

Postby rightstar76 » Sun Apr 22, 2007 3:16 pm

I had to buy a new R.E.I. Sahara Cape Hat after washing and drying the one I used to have last week. I had washed it in the past but I couldn't remember if I washed it cold or warm. I do know I made a mistake putting it into the dryer this time as I had never done that before. So I'm not sure if it was only the dryer that did it or if it was also the warm water. I prefer to use warm water when washing as it does a better job getting out the sweat stains and smell than cold water. But I don't want to have to go back to R.E.I. to buy another hat if I shrink the one that I currently have.

The hat is made of the following: The label reads: Crown 100% nylon and the Sweatband 100% Coolmax polyester.
