How to clean your Tilley Hat
How to clean your Tilley brimmed hat
Tilley hats are designed to last a lifetime. That’s a long time to go without a bath.
Since you’ll be wearing your Tilley all weather from trail to city, grime and perspiration will set in. At home it’s easy to clean your Tilley hat. Remove the windcord and foam from the crown pocket, then machine or hand wash in cold water. Use a mild detergent, don’t bleach or use fabric softener. Once it’s clean, reshape on your knee and hang to dry.
On the trail or at the cottage? Head to the closest river or lake with a marine safe detergent and hand wash. Don’t forget to remove the windcord and foam from the crown pocket. Reshape it on your knee and let that clean, outdoor, air dry your Tilley brimmed hat. You’ll want to make sure there aren’t a large number of birds resting nearby. You could even wash it before you head back to the city to bring some of the scent of nature home with you.
Know No Bounds.
