cleaning hats?

i've got a couple hats i haven't wore in nigh on a 'coon's age, and i think i'd like to get back into them.

but this one in parcticular:
its a red chordouroy piece of work, with this embroidered weiner jumping up and down across the front of the hat with a big grin on his face, framed by the words "LET IT ALL HANG OUT" prominently displayed in blazing blue.

how does one safely clean such a garment?

i've got other hats in need of cleaning as well, but i suspect that the one above may be most difficult.

I always wash on the "delicate" setting of the washing machine and let air dry. OR for best results wear until dry.

i am assuming this is a baseball hat?

if you want to do it by hand you can just use soap, water and a toothbrush

i think you can put hats in the dishwasher? a friend of mine did this....

I bought a device just for such a thing where you put the hat on a plastic mold then stick it in the washer. I got it at Wal-mart for only a couple of bucks.

good.
if its one thing i haven't yet had any use for in my life, its elbow grease. now i know.

i don't have a dishwasher, so i guess i'll try the toothbrush method.

I totally can't picture you in a hat Mr. Gleeson.
Not saying it would be a bad thing - just can't picture it.

hey, i might wear it tonight!

i have very little respect for any semblance of fashion sense.
actually i constantly feel a somewhat disturbing inclination to embrace the stupid and nonsensical.
and that's just when i hang with my brother!
*drum roll, smash!*

har, har.

well, i'm going to try that pillowcase trick!
