To some people, drying a baseball hat after washing it or getting it wet may not seem like a big deal, but for avid hat wearers and collectors, it's serious business. Most baseball hats, typically made of wool, are prone to shrinking when they get wet, making it essential to dry them properly to retain just the right shape. Fortunately, the process is simple and ensures that your hat fits your head for a long time.

Pat the baseball cap with a towel, drying it as much as possible.

Place the baseball cap on a coffee can or similar container to help it keep its shape as it dries.

Wear the baseball cap as it dries in order to achieve the best fit on your head.
