I do almost nothing, and I have more gear overall than you (not all worn at once). I wash my visor in diluted dish detergent, and periodically buy a new visor.
Contrary to old wives tales dropping your helmet from seat of bike to the pavement will not damage it -unless you are very very creative.
I wear a hiviz safety vest over my riding jacket, that vest gets washed every few months.
My usual textile riding jacket (Firstgear) was bought well used via Craigslist, it gets washed once in a blue moon. Ditto my recently acquired old textile riding jacket (Tourmaster).
My Firstgear textile overpants finally wore out after about 6 years of use due to multiple zipper failures.
The old Firstgear Speed riding jacket had its zipper replaced - hand stitched y my wife.
