Full Answer

When hats are stretched using the soaking method, mild detergent should be added to the water. Allow the hat to soak for 20 minutes. The hat should be damp before it's placed on the forming object. Tug the hat slightly in different directions so the hat stretches evenly. Allow the hat to dry completely before wearing it.
