By laying a hat on which you rarely use on a shelf, you need to straighten its fields and give the top of the tulle the shape of a cap. This will save a presentable type of hat for a long time. The hat will last much longer and preserve its original shape better if it is laid on a flat surface, and not hang on a hook or nail. You can refresh the appearance of the hat using steam. To do this, it is enough for a few seconds to hold it over a boiling kettle.
It is necessary to constantly clean the hat with a brush, even in cases where outwardly it looks clean. Otherwise, falling into the rain, the dust on the hat will turn into dirt and spots form on the felt. If your hat is polluted as a result of falling on wet ground, let it dry completely and only then remove the formed spots and dry dirt with a soft brush. Never try to erase or wash off the ashes that hit the felt hat.
In this case, it is necessary to sprinkle the stain with dry salt, and then brush it off with a hard brush. Fetar hats of light colors, it is best to clean with a mixture of corn flour and salt. The specified mixture is prepared in the proportion: one teaspoon of salt on two tablespoons of corn flour. The mixture is applied to a contaminated place with a piece of clean fabric, and then cleaned with a stiff brush.
It is not advisable to wear hats in rainy, wet and raw weather, as this causes product deformation. If the hat is still wet, you should not dry it on a hanger in a hanging position. It is best to fill the hat with blotting paper or crumpled newspapers and leave to dry in a dry place, putting on a horizontal surface. And shortly before it dries completely, you should comb your felt with a soft brush in the direction of the pile.
If it seems to you that after visiting the hairdresser, your hat sits on your head too freely, its size can be slightly reduced, attaching to the inside of the leather strip of headgear, a piece of insulation tape.
After the hair is partially growing, the insulating tape can be removed. Sometimes appropriate on a leather or oilcloth tape, which is located inside the hat, write your home address or mobile phone number. In this case, even accidentally forgetting your hat away or by mistake confusing it from someone else, there is a high probability that you will be returned to the loss or offered to change.
