How to Clean Baseball Pennants

By Elizabeth Balarini

Baseball pennants are triangular-shaped banners that are usually sold in baseball stadium gift shops. Popular with fans, the souvenirs are adored by both casual and serious collectors. Because they are usually made of a felt and wool blend, they tend to attract and hold a great deal of dust. You can clean baseball pennants with a few common household products.

Use the vacuum's hose to vacuum over the entire baseball pennant. This will remove most of the loose dust that might be on the pennant's surface. Move the vacuum hose slowly and carefully, so you can remove as much dust as possible.

Attach the brush attachment to the end of the vacuum's hose. Very carefully, drag this along the surface of the baseball pennant, removing any dust that might be entangled in the fibers of wool and felt. For best results, do a spot test on the back of the baseball pennant, to make sure it can withstand the bristles of your vacuum's brush.

Fill the spray bottle with warm water. Lay the baseball pennant on a hard surface and spray it with water. Use the absorbent Sham Wow towel to soak up the dirty, dusty liquid from the pennant.

Hang the baseball pennant to dry in a room with indirect sunlight. Because a lot of baseball pennants can become collector's items, Don't hang them in direct sunlight, so you don't risk the images fading.
