1. Wearing it for a long time causes its deformation

Because of the narrow brim and deep inside of the hat, and the shape of the hat when it is worn, people tend to pull the brim of very low, so the hat will be gradually out of shape. In this case, we can wet the hat with the right amount of water, fill it with newspapers when the hat is wet, then wait until it is completely dry before moving to the other side, and then wash the hat and hang it up.

The shape of the hat may be deformed during this process. It is quite simple to use a hat stand to extend the original shape of the hat. If there is no hat tree, the following method can be used instead of the hat stand, and makes the deformed hat recover its original shape. The method is very simple, just using some newspapers to pinch into a sphere. Then adjust the buckle of the hat to the size you usually wear, and then put the newspaper into the hat. Leave it for more than 24 hours. The hat will recover the shape.

3. Deformation of the hat’s brim

The wide brim of bucket hats can be rolled up to make different shapes. Therefore, the hat’s brim will be out of shape that cannot recover by itself. The common deformation of the brim of the hat does not need to be completely soaked; the best method is to spray a little water on the surface of the hat, then iron it and dry it in a ventilated place.
