How to care for and store your hat
Proper care and storage is essential to ensuring that your handmade Christine A. Moore Millinery hat will last for years to come.
Always hang a hat on a hook, hat stand or head form to retain shape and freshness.
If these options are unavailable, you can store your hat in the box it came in. Be sure to pack the crown tightly, and keep tissue under the brim in the box to prevent creases. Packing tissue tightly around the hat in the box will also keep the hat in place and prevent crushing . (see video right)
We advise against packing a hat in a suitcase if traveling, unless the hat is labeled "packable." Most airlines will let your carry a hat box on, otherwise the box can be checked like luggage.
to revive feather or crushed trim, a shot of steam from an iron or a kettle will do the trick. You can also do some at home refreshing of the crown and brim (see video right).
If the hat needs reblocking, you can call us for further instruction. We will always reblock one of our hats, free of charge. We just ask you pay for shipping both ways.
Do not dry clean. Most marks can be spot cleaned with a damp cloth or oxiclean color safe wipes. If you got makeup on your hat, makeup remover works the best.
