How to Pack an Eric Javits Hat
Hats are often the best way to protect your head from the sun while traveling. Not only are they lightweight and breathable, but they’re easy to pack as well. Unfortunately, hats may get dirty quickly if you’ve been wearing them for an extended period of time.
During this process, dirt and sweat can seep into the material of a hat, so it’s essential to regularly clean them in order to preserve its original condition.
Cleaning an Eric Javits hat can be done in several ways. First, use a brush to loosen any dust or grime that gets stuck on it. Alternatively, dampen a cloth gently wipe it clean; however, do not soak the hat in water as this could cause discoloration and loss of shape.
Another method is to place the hat under a tap and let it soak for several minutes. This will help remove dust and grime from it, so your hat will look as good as new again.
Once you are finished, gently dry it on a towel or paper towel. Avoid placing it in the dryer as this could cause it to lose its shape.
You can also store your hat in a plastic bag to protect it from moisture. Alternatively, if you have an open closet shelf, flip the hat upside down at the bottom to avoid its brim touching the top of the shelf.
When travelling, you can pack the hat inside a personal item like a suitcase or duffel bag. Pack smaller items (toiletries, hair tools, makeup bag) around the crown of the hat and then stack it on top.
Furthermore, you can store the hat on a plastic shelf in your home to avoid collecting dust and lint. You might even stuff crumpled tissue paper into the crown of the hat before setting it down so that it doesn’t press against its brim.
