Felt Hat Day

Up to the twentieth century, hats performed a remarkably natural part popular and attire – perhaps much moreso than today. Within the 1800s, felt would be a common material for hats, and Felt Hat Day encourages all of us to don a felt hat in tribute for this in the past significant, however somewhat neglected accessory.

How to clean wool felt hats?

When I studied tailoring and alterations we had a one day unit on hat care. Wool felt hats are designed to look good for a long time and wear well. Vintage fedoras from the 1940's are still around and still in as good condition as when they were made. You do need to take care of them and the routine you are doing now is pretty close to suggestions one could find on hat care in old fashion magazines. You might want to make one small change to your care routine: Duct tape is a bit too sticky it can lift up some of the shorter fibers of the felt and can leave a gummy residue if your aren't careful. Painter's masking tape is better, it's designed to to come off surfaces cleanly with no sticky tape gum left behind. Masking tape is what is used to make those sticky lint rollers. Some lint brushes can be a bit too hard on some smooth wool felts, making the surface fuzzy or worse, causing those little balls. Use an old soft toothbrush or a soft hat brush to brush up the nap of the hat after cleaning. A light sponging is good as long as you don't get the hat soaking wet. When the hat begins to look old and tired it might need a professional cleaning and blocking. Having a hat professionally cleaned and blocked will return the snap and crispness to the brim and it will remove any deep embedded dirt.

Also be sure to store your hat properly. For end of the day storage a hook or peg is fine. Don't let it get crushed or squished, don't store it anywhere damp or wet, keep it somewhere dry and if you are storing it for a long period of time try to store it on a hat stand, in a hat box, or stuff the crown with wadded up acid free tissue paper. Don't use newsprint or newspaper, those are too acid and the acid can leach into the wool and ruin it.

Side note: The traditional method from lifting dust and dirt from hats is to use bread wadded into a doughy lump. Because the price of bread is so high and it dough residue can lead to mold and rot if the hat is stored in a damp place it's not recommended any more.

Here are a few general hat tips:

i ovulated on the 7th and had intercourse hat same day is their a possibility i can be pregnant

When you ovulate conception will happen within 24 hours if it is going to happen. However, after conception the fertilized egg still has to make the long trip down the fallopian tube and into the uterus. This takes 6-10 days. Your body is not aware that fertilization was or was not successful until implantation. Upon implantation the embryo will start to share a blood supply with you. It will release beta HCG into your blood stream. beta HCG will tell your body that it is pregnant and start to make changes. Until there is beta HCG in your bloodstream you will not experience any pregnancy symptoms. Further, until there is beta HCG in your bloodstream you are not actually pregnant.

Unfortunately, the worst part about TTC is the 2 week wait. The earliest you can find out if you are pregnant is 6 days past ovulation. But if you are not pregnant at that time it does not mean that you won't be at 10 days past ovulation. And some women don't have implantation until as late as 12 days past ovulation. So you just have to wait until your period is due to find out for sure.

On a side note, the day of your missed period is week 4 of pregnancy. It is very uncommon for nausea to set in earlier than week 5. You are only in week 3. If you are feeling nauseous you should go to the doctor to see about illness. If you are sick, it could affect implantation.
