First off could we please try to be mature about this? I'm not using that six letter word that sets the A&S crowd into a blind internet rage. Secondly, I've made the personal choice to wear a head protector and I'm not going to stop. If you disagree with *my personal choice* please feel free to debate it on the six letter word thread with someone who isn't me. Thanks in advance for being cool!
OK so last May I bought a new head protector to replace my old one which stunk to high heaven, was falling apart and had a few dings on it from being dropped and locked on my bike. I no longer lock it to my bike. I bought a nice one with lots of ventilation holes and several adjustable straps. It cost me around $30-$40 USD so I don't want to replace it already. It would appear most of the odor is on the straps and pads. Normally my MO for treating smelly things I can't wash is to spray Febreeze on em. However I'm not sure that's a good idea because I'm worried it might affect the foam. I'm also considering maybe a sponge bath with delicate fabric detergen. Again not sure if thats a good idea. I suspect I might be overthinking this radically. Any suggestions?
