  3. 3

    Press the iron against the bill and move it slowly around the surface area, including the corners.

  4. 4

    Place the hat in a cool place away from direct sunlight to dry. Once the hat is dry it is ready for wearing.

Tips and warnings

  • Put a paper towel over the damp brim with a heavy book on top so the bill dries perfectly flat.
  • You can also put the hat in the freezer to expedite the process and help the bill keep its new shape.
