How to protect the natural fur hat from moisture
When you get home, after a snowy or rainy day, your natural fur hat needs some protection. You can’t let it dry as such, just use a paper towel or a microfiber cloth to dab slightly the hat to absorb as many water drops as possible.
Then shake the hat well to help the fur threads to rearrange evenly, and then let the hat dry in a big and warm space (living-room), but not near a heating source.
Natural fur must be held on a hanger in a spacious area, otherwise it will wrinkle and get some unsightly stripes.
Storage during the warm season
During the warm season, the natural fur hat is stored in a cotton bag with 2-3 silica gel sachets to keep it dry. It’s advisable to put inside the hat an old pillowcase, in order to maintain the round shape of the hat.
How to clean and remove stains from a natural fur hat
The fur threads are strong, but very delicate. The safest method is chemical cleaning in a specialized center. But, if there are no difficult stains to remove, you can try to clean it at home.

If the lining is stained with body oil, soak a soft sponge in cold water mixed with a few drops of dish detergent. At the end, wipe the lining with a cotton cloth soaked in cold water and squeezed very well. Leave the hat to dry inside the house near a heating source.
After drying, comb the fur with a soft brush.
- Get rid of yellow stains
If the fur has an old aspect and turns yellowed, you need:
- 1 tablespoon of baking soda
- 1 tablespoon of salt
Mix baking soda and salt and sprinkle it over the fur hat, and then comb well the fur threads with a soft brush. Let it act for about 10 minutes, and then turn the hairdryer on cold air and remove all the baking soda and salt traces.
- Remove snow, mud and dust stains
Snow, mud or dust stains can be cleaned with a white handkerchief soaked in cold water. If the stains are stubborn and won’t go, add 2-3 drops of shampoo for a better degreasing. Dab the place with cold water and let the hat dry outside or on the balcony.
