Can anyone recommend a source for a white rubber hat sponge? I see that the Village Hat Shop offers a dark hat sponge, but I imagine that I would not want to use that on lighter color hats, true?

Several Loungers have suggested using a white rubber hat sponge for removing light soil and stains -- I just can't seem to find one anywhere...[huh]

I have gotten both kinds at the Boot Barn here in Southern California as they carry cowboy hats and numerous hat cleaners, even that Nu-Strw cleaner.

I also use a dry cleaning pad from noggintops that does a good job as well.

Hadn't seen that before. Looks interesting. You've had good luck with it?

I bought a "soot sponge" also called a dry cleaning sponge on the label at a paint store. They use it to clean the walls with soot damage before painting.

I am pretty sure its the same thing and it works for me. It is natural rubber about 6"x3"x2". I cut mine in half.

I bought mine at Bed, Bath & Beyond for about $4. They make a lampshade sponge that'll do the same thing.
