Err...... Your Plastic Hat

After lots of dirt and sweat I decided to wash my helmet
rf 1000 ( I Am forced into retirement and as such embracing my poor)

I am fortunate and have a combination of
Wash tub, slop sink and urinal
so I can fill it up and submerge the whole thing repeatedly

I used a febreeze sweat detergent and a few rinses

So far it looks fine. Does everyone do this ? I am late to the party?

Previously for dirt always had a dirt bike and dirt helmet that always had a removable liner that could be laundered.

Lots of brands come with removable liners now. They probably still never get washed.

I usually replace the liner rather than wash it, and sometimes replace the whole helmet.

love how the Shei A hole tells you to avoid

Drying your helmet in direct sunlight



I guess I should only use Shoei helmets
at night, during cloudy weather, or underground

I wash mine with hair shampoo. Don't want to use a soap that could irritate your skin.

On a couple trips my helmet started to smell pretty funky.
I ended up holding it over the smoke from the camp fire after a handful of green pine needles were thrown in. Works very well.
