How to clean a 10X Beaver Hat ?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

What’s the best and safest way to clean off the black marks left by ejected rifle rounds on a 10X Beaver hat that is light tan in color without damaging the hat?

corn starch and a toothbrush.  Takes a while but works great.

After the winter break, seems like it turned to dust.  Came off with hat sponge and brush,      GW

Stop by the western wear store and purchase a hat cleaning sponge. After you’ve brushed in the corn starch, use the sponge to gently scrub the hat working in a clockwise direction. Most all hats are finished in a clockwise direction and brushing in the opposite direction will rough up the felt.

Clean a hat...what an idea. But the hat sponges do work well. Being a darksider I have come to think of those stains as added personality to my lighter colored hats.

The hat belongs to a cousin who suffered a stroke and no longer able to shoot. Not being computer savvy he asked if I would help him sell his cowboy items. I’m making an effort to clean his hat to make it more attractive for someone to purchase,  not impress possible new owners that the previous owner shot the dark side which he didn’t.

I'm curious, I was always taught to brush hats in a counter clockwise direction. That's why hat brushes are shaped and not ).

Is this incorrect?
