  1. 1

    Set an iron to steam and fill a spray bottle with water.

  2. 2

    Spray the entire bill of the hat generously with water.

  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.
