I didn’t land on my head or have any impact on my helmet but it took a while of me laying in the dirt for my trainer to convince me I was just winded and not dying and I noticed now there’s a big dusty dirty patch on the side of my helmet. ⬇️
So how do I get it clean? I had no idea, I googled “helmet cleaning” but that turned up lots of posts on how to clean motorbike helmets (surely not that hard they’re plastic right?) anyway then I found this:
Now I don’t have a Troxel but my helmet is microfibre so I gave it a go.
Just mild soap and water, I was a little unsure about whether there would be soap residue or if too much water would warp the fabric but it actually looks good as new!
So good I fact when I first took the after photo I shot the wrong side!
*note, my helmet didn’t make contact with the ground during the fall, the dirt came from after when I was catching my breath and I had taken it off and had it next to me on the ground. You should ALWAYS replace your helmet after a fall where it impacts the ground as any impact whether it leaves visible damage or not can reduce the efficiency of it in any subsequent falls. #helmetssavelives #mindyourmelon
