Directions Felt hat stiffener will restore an already stiffened hat or can be used  on a new felt hat body.  Felt hat stiffener will shower proof your felt hat and if used in a fuller degree water proof it.

1.) Please make sure that hat is clean and dry before applying Leko Felt Hat Stiffener.
2.) Pour a sufficient amount into a small dish and with a soft flat  painters brush apply evenly on the inside of the crown first and then on the upper and/or underside of the brim.
3.) After the application, wipe the hat with a soft cloth and then let dry.
4.) Then put it on the block and steam and finish in the usual way.

These directions are just a guide. Many milliners prefer to block their hat first and then when dry apply light applications of sizing letting it dry between applications until desired stiffness is achieved.   NOTE: if the hat seems a little too stiff in some parts where the  stiffener has not been applied evenly, saturate a piece of soft cloth with  ordinary alcohol and go over such parts smoothly.  This will give an even effect.
