Are you unsure of how to wash a baseball cap?  Use this Baseball Cap Washer to easily clean flat and curved rimmed caps. For use in the dishwasher or washing machine, the new design uses less plastic and weighs less, so storage is a breeze.  When you’re done, you can store it in a cupboard for the next clean or use it to hold the shape of caps when they’re not being warn.

This laundry accessory has a spacious design to accommodate garments such as sweaters, pops open for quick use, and then folds flat for simple storage.  An elastic strap keeps drying rack securely closed when collapsed and folds flat for quick and simple storage almost anywhere.  Perfect laundry accessory for traveling, laundry rooms, dorms, or apartment living.
