Caring for your Stetson Cavalry Hat
Brush off any dirt or dust with a soft-bristled brush. Spot clean with a damp cloth and mild soap. Do not use harsh chemicals or heat, as they can damage the hat material.
Store the hat in a cool, dry place to maintain its shape.
To help maintain your hat’s shape use a hat stand or stuff it with tissue paper when you are not wearing it. You can also stuff your hat with plain white paper towels to absorb moisture and maintain its shape. The way to properly store your Stetson is to purchase a sturdy hat carrier from CavHooah.com and always store it in your hat carrier.
Avoid getting your Stetson Cavalry hat wet, and if it does get wet, let it air dry naturally. When it is completely dry, store it as listed above to prevent any further damage.
Do not apply direct heat to the hat, as this can cause permanent damage to the material and affect its shape. Heat sources such as hair dryers, radiators, or direct sunlight can shrink or damage your hat.
