I don’t always clean my bike after a ride, but I simply can’t make myself leave my helmet all grubby and covered in dead mozzies when I get home. This insistence on keeping the lid clean means I scrub it on a daily basis. Using water and soap works, but having decent products like the Ammo Helmet Cleaner, Polish and Sanitiser makes the job easier and quicker.
The Ammo X-Clean Helmet Cleaner (£6.95) is a handy spray that you apply on the helmet, leave for a little while and then scrub off. It helps get the bugs and road grime off more easily than regular soap, and leaves the helmet sparkling clean. About once a week I also use the X-Glide helmet polish (£6.50) to give the lid a bit of a protective layer and make it look good again.
This only takes a short while and is well worth it as the polish also acts as a water repellent on the visor and keeps it free of droplets in the rain.
Every now and again I reach for the X-Fresh helmet sanitiser (£5.95) too, especially in the summer when the lid gets sweaty and smelly and after a wet ride that leave the lining smelling a bit dank. I suppose these Ammo Helmet Cleaner, Polish and Sanitiser are luxury items that simply do a better job than water and soap, but I can’t stand a dirty helmet, so tome it’s money worth spending.
