It's best to spot clean all cloth hats with a damp cloth using cold water, or hand-wash in a sink if necessary. We recommend using plant-based soaps because regular detergents can be toxic for our waterways.
Always let your hat dry naturally. If your hat gets out of shape, you can use steam from a tea kettle to reshape it. Hold the hat in the steam and allow it to soften. You can then reshape your hat to its original shape and then let it cool down before wearing.
Another option to take out wrinkles on the brim is to place a clean rag or old T-shirt over the wrinkled area then iron the area.
This is my second Legionnaire hat. I had no idea it was also made of recycled materials. I bought my first one a few years ago when I walked into a small shop at a hospital after leaving a dermatology appointment (where I was told to wear hats while working in the sun). I love this little hat, and even more so now that I know it is also made of recycled materials. I wear it in the car to help keep the sun off while driving and I wear it while walking and gardening. It is lightweight and comfortable. What more can I say!
