It's quite necessary to clean your helmet, especially during summer when you sweat the most. Here are three helmet care tips to help you get the most out of your bike helmet this season.
1. Do not use chemicals to clean your helmet. The professional recommendation is using mild, soapy water and a soft cloth. If the liner begins to smell or discolor, it is usually removed and cleaned.
2. Store the helmet in a cool, dry place. Avoid in attics, garages, car trunks, or anywhere overheated, as these can damage the integrity of the helmet material. Overheating damaged helmets should never be worn, and signs of blistering, cracking, or discoloration can be seen.
3. Do not lending your helmet to others, especially if it is one that you regularly rely on for safety. You need to know where your helmet has been and what has happened to it in order to confidently trust the piece of equipment.
