Will ride for Oreos
I've got a Shoei RF... full face and it needs to be cleaned inside. What's the best way to do this?
Every helmet I've owned allow me to pull all the pads out (usually snap or velcro or a combination). Once I pull them out I get a bucket and a bit of warm water and laundry detergent and hand wash them thoroughly. Make sure you squish the padding like a sponge to get all the soaked-in sweat pumped out of there like you're cleaning a sponge.I've got a Shoei RF... full face and it needs to be cleaned inside.

+1 i thought they actually suggest submerging the entire lid?Umm, seriously take it in the shower with you. No kidding, I've been doing it for years. In Florida I used to shampoo my lids in the shower about every 2 weeks.
It's recommended by Arai and it works like a charm.
No mystery chemicals in your helmet, no expensive contraptions, just a good luke warm shower. That's about the only caveat, do not use REALLY hot water if you take REALLY HOT showers dial it back a bit.
Fill your helmet with water, drain ad your favorite shampoo, agitate gently, rinse well, allow to dry on a towel for a few hours or overnight depending on your environment. Your helmet will smell great, and last for years.
