Hat season is around the corner and mine is pretty dirty. Where does one get his hat cleaned?

Its bad karma to "clean" your hat. Just don't do it.

enough
Things the Captain's Hat Maker does not want you to know:

Emerse it in a solution of Woolite and water, place it on the top shelf of your dishwasher, select the pot scrubber cycle, and turn off the dry cycle(as seen on BoobTube.) Select "Start." Rumor has it, that this will restore it to "like new" status. Please give us a report as this procedure will be added as a module in the Captain Leadership Training.

P.S. This works great for your favorite baseball caps, also.;)

The most important thing to add to the washing machine is bleach, as it will kill all the kreepy krawly's that end up in your hats. Lots of bleach !!!!!!

Hats for everyone this year or you will be sent home!
If thats true...dont wear your hat around the holidays and hope it works!!!!

My cleaning tips for your hat would be a long soak in nitric acid for at least 3 hours!

CP: Where's your hat?
Pilot: In my bag.
CP: Why is your hat in your bag?
Pilot: Its too small.
CP: Why don't you buy a bigger hat?
Pilot: Then it won't fit in my bag.
