Need ideas on how to store snapbacks hats? Whether it's a personal hat collection full of vintage pieces, your son's vast array of baseball caps or your own assortment of sun hats to knitted beauties, these accessories can surely be a pain to organize and keep at bay.
Hat maintenance and proper care, after all, are an important factor to keep your hat as fresh as the day you bought it.So, if you are wondering how to store your hat the right way, you've come to the right place.
Tip 1. Hat Boxes.
The right way to store a hat in a box is to keep the hat upside down in the box it came in. A proper hat box is designed with a circular cut out to stick the crown through. The crown of your hat should be suspended in midair, never crushed. The brim is then suspended, holding the hat upside down in place.
Good news is you have new ammunition for buying more stuff and a valid excuse to visit The Container Store. Go get some boxes.
Tip 2. Collage Display.
If you've got a collection of prized or vintage pieces, use them as fun wall art. Whether it's the dining room, hallway or your home office, you can certainly create a cool collage to display them and style with.
Tip 3. Hidden Shelves.
If you've got a space such as this, where you can hide (and see) what's inside, use it to your advantage. Throw your hats up there for easy access and easy storage too.
Tip 4. Hang Em.
One hanger and some shower hooks can really make life a lot easier in the closet. This is perfect for apartments or dorm rooms too, where space is usually quite limited. You’ll find them easy and keep them in one spot, instead of strewn around the floor.
Tip 5. In an Armoire.
Beautiful pieces of furniture can really do a lot throughout your home. If you've got the extra space, do something grand with your collection of hats. Grab and go when you want to wear one, and in the meantime, you can show them off!
Tip 6. Coat Racks.
A coat rack can become another easy way to store and display your hats. If you have a hidden nook or corner of the house that needs some sprucing, find a trendy rack and use it!
Tip 7. Moth It – Keep Mothballs Nearby
Moths love to munch on animal fiber. The wool in that swanky felt fedora is definitely a target. Take proper precaution to guard against Mother Nature’s nasty winged creatures with a handful of mothballs.
If the smell of mothballs reminds you of Grandma’s attic, there are alternatives. Lavender scented moth balls are available. Others swear by cedar chips as a safe natural deterrent.
As with all chemical weapons: Read the label. Mothballs are poison. It’s a pesticide. Make sure you’re using them properly. More importantly too it will kill eggs and larvae. Eww, I know, right? But imagine that stuff eating your favorite top hat. They’re better off dead.
Ideally mothballs should only be used with airtight containers. If the smell is present outside the box, it means the airtight seal has been broken.
