shrinking a flexfit hat.

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by MCBTunes, May 25, 2005.


  1. well the lg/xlg is still a little to loose for my head while the others are too small.

    I've heard if you run the hat through a dishwasher or wear it in the shower you can get it to shrink a little? Any truth to any of this?

    How can I get the hat to fit properly?

    Thanks.
     
  2. I have the same issue with a hat. Not sure what to do about it though... ;)

    I've had one for a couple of years, eventually it will grow out of shape around the band part. It was comfortable at first, but now, I rarely wear it due to the shape.

    The dishwasher is not a good idea. It will take the shape out of your hat. The best thing to do is put the hat on your head and put a little water on it and shape it on your head and let it dry on your head. I always put my hat on after I surf and it is molded perfectly. ;)
