Visors are a head accessory that can be used to block the sun. Visors are worn by many, whether it be on the tennis court, at a sports game, when lounging by the pool or while relaxing and reading a book outdoors. Just like hats and other accessories, the visor needs cleaned when buildup accumulates. Whether you have a hard visor surface or a soft fabric, you must properly clean and care for the visor in a way that causes no damage.
Things You'll Need
- Laundry detergent
- Cleaning rags
- Baseball cap holder
- Washing machine
- Dishwasher detergent
Washing Hard Visors
Run a cleaning rag under warm water and rub off any sticky residue.
Add a drop of laundry detergent to the rag for tougher buildup and continue rubbing over the visor.
Wipe down the entire visor with a damp rag and dry with a clean rag to remove excess moisture.
Cleaning Fabric Visors
Place the visor into a baseball cap holder and lock the unit into place. These are shaped a bit larger than baseball caps and have the look of a cage. These units protect the shape of the visor while it is washed.
Place the visor into the dishwasher with dishwasher detergent, or place into the washing machine with laundry detergent. Let the wash cycle complete.
Remove the visor from the cap holder and lay flat to air dry. Do not put it in the dryer.
