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

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