When ‘Off-white’ isn’t the look you’re going for

Hi Charles,

As a university student that once utilized an overly kind mother to keep all his whites white, now I find myself looking for advice.

What is the best way to clean a polyester-spandex blend baseball cap without damaging it? A man must keep up appearances.

Signed, Rob

Dear Rob,

My first initial reaction is that you should call and ask your mom, first because I’m sure she would love to hear from you, but secondly she will tell you how she cleaned it in the past.

Remember to always follow label directions. Now if the hat is just normally dirty, my first try would be just regular good old laundry soap, if the hat needs to be “whitened” then, try Oxyclean, follow the directions, and remember the secret with Oxyclean is to let it soak.

Got a question??Email Charlesthebutler@metronews.com
