Hat Care and Cleaning Tips

Our range of sun safe hats are designed with materials and features specifically chosen to offer maximum protection against the sun.

From wide brims that shade your face and neck to UPF-rated fabrics that block harmful UV rays, our hats are your first line of defence against sunburn and long-term skin damage.

To ensure your sun safe hat continues to provide reliable protection, it’s important to follow proper care instructions. Here’s how to keep your hat in top condition:

Murray Standard and Murray Breeze

  • Begin by gently brushing your hat to remove any surface debris. This helps to prevent dirt and dust from settling into the fabric.
  • For deeper cleaning, use a soft cloth dampened with water. Always test a small, inconspicuous area first to ensure the colour fastness of the fabric.
  • Allow your hat to air dry naturally. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, as this can cause fading and damage to the material.

Leather Hats: Paterson Standard and Paterson Breeze

  • Start by brushing the surface gently to remove any dirt or dust.
  • Use a damp cloth to wipe the hat, and apply a leather conditioner regularly to keep the leather soft and supple. Be sure to test the conditioner on a small area first to avoid any adverse effects.
  • When not in use, store your leather hat flat on its brim to prevent misshaping. Avoid storing it in areas of extreme heat, as this can cause the leather to dry out and crack.

Other Hats

  • Hand washing is often the best method for hats made from various materials.
  • Fill a basin with cold water and a mild detergent, then gently agitate the hat to remove dirt and sweat.
  • After washing, allow the hat to air dry in the shade. Avoid wringing, bleaching, ironing, or tumble drying, as these can damage the fabric and alter its shape.

Additional Tips

  • To maintain the shape of your hat, avoid placing heavy objects on top of it or storing it in a cramped space.
  • If your hat becomes wet, reshape it gently and allow it to air dry naturally. Avoid using heat sources such as hairdryers, as these can cause shrinkage and damage to the material.
  • Regular cleaning and maintenance will not only keep your hat looking great but also extend its lifespan, allowing you to enjoy it for years to come.
