With the right care, a leather hat can retain its great looks for many years. Taking the time to remove sweat stains from the hat on a regular basis is one of the best ways to keep it looking like new.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Dip a soft cloth in warm water. Wring the cloth out until it is only damp.

  2. 2

    Apply a small amount of baby shampoo to the damp cloth. Use a few drops at first, and add more if necessary. Rub the cloth to work up a good lather.

  3. 3

    Clean the sweat stains off the leather hat by rubbing the area gently with the damp cloth and baby shampoo. Wipe the excess cleaning solution away with a damp cloth.

  4. 4

    Apply a quality leather conditioner to the entire hat to protect it. Apply a water repellent solution as well to provide extra protection.
