Cleaning the Inside of Your Helmet
|Step 1 - Remove the visor
|Step 2 - Place towel in tub
You do not want to scratch your nice helmet, do you? Make sure you put the drain plug in first.
|Step 3 - Measure out some of your favorite delicate laundry detergent
|Step 4 - Fill the tub
|Step 5 - Wash the helmet
Squish the soapy water through the pads and the rest of the helmet.
Open your vents and let some soap drain through them as well.
|Step 6 - Drain
|Step 7 - Rinse
Rinse the soap from the outside, vents, and inside.
To get the soap out of the pads, squish the clean water in them repeatedly. Be thorough
|Step 8 - Drain
Hold it like this for a bit to let much of the water drain out.
|Step 9 - Dry
The best for way for a helmet to dry is on a dish rack like this one. It allows air to circulate to let it dry faster.
DO NOT use a heat source (hair dryer, etc.) to expedite the drying process! The heat will cause glue breakdown and other problems. Just DON NOT do it!
Al from Florida had a great tip:
I used an inverted (i.e. pointing UP) $30 little floor fan from Home Depot that swivels. My helmet dried on that in under 1/2 - with no heat source, just air.
