    Okay, I've been riding for about two years now - my helmet is really beginning to stink from sweat :eek: (particularly the straps)- what do I do - throw the whole thing in the washing machine? Any better ideas? :confused:

    I wash mine with diswashing detergent in the kitchen sink. Just try not to let any water get between the outer hard shell and the inner styrofoam.

    canĀ“t happen with modern helmets as the shell is cast as one with the cover on any helmet worth using .
    or shower gel of the bactiricide type ( less rinsing )

    oh and try washing your hair more often and not using gel / brylcream etc :rolleyes:
