How to Wash Ball Caps in the Dishwasher

by Faizah Imani

When you have purchased a baseball cap representing your favorite team, you want your cap to look good for a long time. If you wear your cap often, you can find yourself in a "Catch-22" situation where the cap is dirty but you don't want to wash it for fear of ruining the shape of your cap. There is a safe alternative method you can use--place it in the dishwasher.

Step 1

Remove all dishes from the dishwasher.

Step 2

Place your baseball cap on the top rack of your dishwasher. This will keep it from bouncing around in the dishwasher.

Step 3

Set the wash cycle to "Regular." Use cold water to ensure the colors of your baseball cap stay vibrant.

Step 4

Place a small amount of dishwashing powder into the detergent holder.

Step 5

Power on the dishwasher.

Step 6

Remove your baseball cap from the dishwasher immediately after the rinse cycle has completed.

Step 7

Place the cap in an open area so it can air-dry.
