I know that many children's entertainers use costumes and such to dress up the kids for routines. I also do this.

I was wondering if anyone uses any kind of anti-bacterial spray or anything, especially for hats. For one of my routines, I have the child wear a big, felt top hat. They only wear it for a few minutes, but I would want to avoid the possibility of head lice or other grossness.

Any recommendations?

Sorry, perhaps Lysol?? This is a issue for me too.

A quick spray after each show of good 'ol Lysol
has worked for me on the hat in my act for over 25 years!

No advice just my usual nonsense:

Shortly after I got my hat a child put it on his head and I came out with;
"Have you got lice?"
"You have now!"

I use it quiet often now but it's never been as funny as when I ad-libbed it.

I heard Groucho Marx call a hat a "flea incubator" recently (Go West, maybe) and that tickled me.

Where do they go in winter?

Somewhere where it's not "flea-zing" cold!

Ha, nice one Frank.

The classic answer is: "Search me"

I also use Lysol spray disinfectant. There is a new product out called "Clorox Anywhere", but it's only for hard surfaces.

Anti-bacterial sprays won't help with any type of lice, you do know that, right?

The lice will be nice and clean while crawling all over the next child though....
