I carry hat cleaner
separately too, so you'll find The Bickmore Hat Cleaner
for use on dark fur felt hats; a bottle of Nustraw
to clean straw hats
; and a can of Gard More
which will help protect your hats from water and oil based stains
in the first place. To breathe life back into a somewhat shapeless, but dearly loved felt hat, I'd personally recommend another product carried by Bickmore, The Hat Stiffener
, from Kahl and Sons. Another item I use faithfully is Duck Back Dressing
to renew the waterproofing
on my oilskin hats. Made by The Outback Trading Company
, the cream seals seams and also helps restore rain repellent qualities inherent in oil skin hats.
Hats. No matter how old they get, you'll never stop worrying about them. Thanks for caring.
