Just got back from a long ride. 113 degrees out and helmet is soaked. Liner is removable and gonna wash. Cheek pads wont come out, was wondering what people use to clean them.

Shout (the laundry stuff) makes sheets to clean stains, you could try that. Or an apholstery cleaner like Tuff Stuff.

Also, when you're done and it dries, rub an dryer sheet on them. Helps with the smell. Keep one in my off road helmets when they sit for long times.

Bonus, you get better looking hair than Flo (progressive chick) when you take the helmet off.

I don't know if you really can, but I am sure drying it out really well will help. maybe some fabreze would help with any residual odor if thats your problem. For actual stains or spots, try the tide pen or an upholstery spot cleaner. The outside is easy, just some water is all you really need. maybe a light dish soap.

I've used a real weak solution of Dawn detergent and distilled water , using clean paper towels to blot out excess water. I then use some of the distilled water to rinse any soap out...blotting again with the towels.

Make sure to let the helmet air out to dry before using again. (A good case for owning more than one helmet).

Some suggest using Fabrezze? To help de-funkify the inside, but that's your call. ;)

I've used a weak shampoo solution.
Rinsed it very well.
Then put the helmet over a small fan for a couple of days.
It worked very well and didn't have a strong detergent smell, later.
