I was walking around the SDSU campus yesterday, wearing the Ghostbusters cap (and as usual the cap was working its magic; a couple of sorority girls stopped me to say "Great cap", and another group of girls smiled at me, and some dude started singing the Ghostbusters theme tune at me, etc.) but then I got home, and took off the cap, and my fiancee said "You know what, I really think it's time you washed that cap", and I realized she's probably right.

In the past six years the cap has been to: three continents, six Coachellas, been in the temporary ownership of both Ron and Brandon, been on a large number of boardies' heads, and been in regular use by me.

And yet is has NEVER been washed.

It is now starting to smell a little, and looking a little shabby, to say the least.

So I decided I should probably wash it, but how do you wash a baseball cap? If I put it in the washing machine I think the logo will get washed off or something, and it'll lose its shape. Should I hand-wash it? If so, how?

This is a delicate procedure and I need to know what I'm doing, otherwise the consequences could be disastrous.

Handwash in Woolite. Don't be afraid to scrub.

Also, I had that on my head last April and now want to vomit under the realization it's never been washed.

That is amazing, but I think the temperature of the water would melt off the logo or something. I think a hand wash is in order, I just don't know how to do it.

I have washed hats and shoes in the dishwasher before (uh, not with dishes in there) and never had a problem.

whatever you decide, let it dry on a coffee can or bowl or something so it keeps the shape.

soak it in the sink with some oxyclean

Your fiancee should know this. If not, perhaps you need to reconsider?

Just throw it in the washer with your clothes.
Logo may fade over time, possible shape change, but it'll be fine once you wear it again for a little while.

seriously, oxyclean. just soak it for a few hours, no scrubbing or anything needed. it will be nice and white again when done. then just rinse it and let it dry.

that cap has a lot of synthetic foam, if I recall correctly, so it's not like it's made of natural materials like a true ballcap. I'd be wary of the dishwasher and go with the handwashing.

Yeah it is foam, its not heavy wool. Beware the dishwasher.

How?

Warm water. Some spraying. No scrubbing to speak of.

When it came to me it smelled strongly of cigarette smoke and with my sinuses as they are my options were (a) sealing it up in a plastic bag and handing it off as soon as possible and (b) washing it.

For that kind of hat, I would use Windex.

I've used one of these before. Works quite well. You can either use in your washing machine or use after handwashing to retain the shape.

If that hat hasn't already died from smoking, chances are pretty good a little soap and water can't hurt it.

I beat off all over my Ghostbusters cap on a regular basis, but that doesn't make it any cleaner.

Oh, so American. "It doesn't matter if I ruin it cause I can just get another one", right?

WELL THIS CAP IS IRREPLACABLE, GODDAMMIT!

If it is ruined, keep wearing it then. The warped-ness will give the hat an air of authenticity.

Amy, this is like me saying "Hey, Amy, why don't you let Randy babysit your kids one evening?" and you replying "Are you f#cking kidding me? Those are my kids! They're irreplacable!" and then me saying "If he rapes or abuses them, don't worry about it, it'll just make them more interesting."

Would you let Randy babysit your kids, Amy!? Wait... don't answer that...

Why, you're a naughty little lad, aren't you? *giggles*


WHAT IS A BROKEN DOLL?
She is the girl who is secure in herself and does as she pleases. She is unrestricted by the rules and
regulations of the world around her. She has strength,
charisma and personality.

Each "Doll" is beautiful in her own way and loves
to flaunt that beauty to the world. Creating art
with her presence in daily life.

Some would deem this as not a woman's place,
therefore making her "Broken" to society's standards.
But, she doesn't worry about what society thinks
and that brings each "Doll" here for all the
World to taste her creation.

Unfortunately, it would be unfair for me to join those little bat-shit nubiles in their quest for fame. I'm already at the Jezebel~Concubine Level these days. I don't need to take my knickers off! :winkiss

seriously, Stef, where do you find that shit at?
