On the basis that Offrs SD peak caps are not cheap items to replace, does anyone have a proven / tested approach for cleaning (in particular) the cloth flat-top of these hats?
Staining to the upper crown of such caps is not unusual, and over the years I’ve seen some fairly-rough examples.
I’m presuming that a professional dry cleaner wouldn’t take-on such a job? (perhaps they would- I’ve not asked yet).
Alternatively: can SD peaks be dip-washed, upside-down, and keeping the headband dry?
I would stress that I’m referring to Offrs’ SD No2 dress peaks, I >don’t< mean the cleaning of pristine No1s level of headgear with stiff brim and hoop shaper.
The type of SD peak cap that I’m talking about is more the knockabout ‘crusher’ style of headgear, with drooped sides and flimsy top.
For the purposes of your response, let’s presume that cleaning/resurrecting an SD peak cap is so much more desirable than buying a new one at perhaps £100 every few years.
