User How to Wash and Care for Your Gym Cap: Tips for Longevity

Welcome to 1Cap's guide on how to properly wash and care for your gym cap to ensure it remains in top condition for the long haul. Our washable baseball caps are designed to withstand your toughest workouts, but proper care is key to maintaining their performance and longevity. Follow these practical tips to keep your cap looking and feeling fresh, wash after wash.

1. Machine Wash with Care:

  • To clean your gym cap, simply toss it into the washing machine on it's own or with a couple of light items on a gentle cycle. Use cold water and a mild detergent to help preserve the integrity of the fabric and colors. Avoid using bleach or harsh chemicals, as they can damage the material. Avoid washing your cap in a full wash, when clothes are wet, they get heavy and can pull the seems of your cap. 

2. Air Dry for Best Results:

  • After washing, avoid the temptation to throw your cap in the dryer. Instead, let it air dry naturally to help preserve its shape and structure. Avoid wringing or twisting the cap, as this can cause it to lose its shape. Once dry, reshape the cap (on your head) if necessary and store it in a cool, dry place.

3. Spot Clean as Needed:

  • For minor stains or spots, spot clean your cap with a damp cloth and mild soap. Gently scrub the affected area and rinse with water. Avoid rubbing too vigorously, as this can damage the fabric. Allow the cap to air dry completely before wearing or storing.

4. Avoid High Heat:

  • Heat can cause shrinkage and damage to the fabric of your cap, so avoid exposing it to high temperatures. Never iron your cap, as the heat can melt or warp the material. If necessary, use a steamer on low heat to remove wrinkles, but be sure to keep the steamer moving to prevent concentrated heat in one area.

5. Store Properly Between Uses:

  • When not in use, store your gym cap in a clean, dry place away from direct sunlight. Avoid folding or crushing the cap, as this can cause creases and wrinkles. Instead, store it flat or hang it on a hook to help maintain its shape.

6. Refresh Regularly:

  • To keep your cap smelling fresh between washes, consider using a fabric refresher spray or hanging it in a well-ventilated area to air out. Avoid using strong-smelling products, as they can leave a lingering scent on the fabric.

By following these simple tips, you can keep your 1Cap gym cap looking and feeling fresh for years to come. With proper care and maintenance, your cap will continue to provide you with the performance and style you need to crush your workouts in comfort and confidence.
