Wash caps made from cotton and wool fabrics 

If you own a wool or cotton cap, it will tend to shrink when exposed to water or high-temperature conditions. It is recommended that you hand wash wool/cotton caps and snapbacks in a sink with cold water and wash gently. Then dry the cap at room temperature to keep the shape of the cap, to avoid deformation or distortion of the cap. One thing to note is that you absolutely must not use a brush to scrub the cap, as that will make the fabric fibers, afraid of the wool being broken, frayed, and will lose everything from the original cap.

Before washing, we turn a little clean water into the basin and soak the cap so that the water completely covers the hat for about 5 minutes. for the purpose of softening the fabric and dirt stains that are and have been attached for a long time on the hat. Or if you don't want to be fussy, you should also soak for 10 to 20 seconds and then gently rub the top of the fabric (the hard part should not be rubbed by hand, but lightly brushed with a brush).

Step 2: Change the water and soak the cap with soap for 10 minutes

Next, pour the old water into the basin, turn about 1 cup of water (about 200 to 400ml only).
