I set fire to mine after each ride and buy a new one

When I say washer dryer, I mean it’s some somewhat fleshy woman from Upper Slobovia who’s dunks me in Lynn Creek , lathers me up with some caustic “soap” then grabs me by the ankles and beats the stink and dirt out of me on a large boulder in said creek then lays me out to dry in the sun. Which in October means I’m there until May.

Pop the liner in a bucket with near cold water and Euculan (a gentle wool wash detergent - and then rest helmet on top of container so that straps sit in the water. Leave it to soak for a few hours (the light brown stain in the water will be a good clue!). Empty, fill bucket with clean cold water and leave both to sock for 30 minutes (this is the rinse), press mostly dry with a towel and hang to air dry. Job done, stink free and clean for another few rides.
