    balaclava and my bad breath

    hello my peeps,

    well, i've been riding with a balaclava, neoprene/polyester/polyutherane/whateverthehellitis.. and of course, i breathe through my mouth as much as through my nose, but my bad breathe goes straight into the balaclava where my mouth is.. there are holes there, but it's not enough; when i get back i notice it's a little smelly. brushing and listerine just won't cut it . anyone have any tips?

    I wash my balaclava in the sink when I get back at night and then put it on the radiator (sorry can´t remember what you call them in US English) to dry off for the next day

    cycling is good for snot. Non-cyclists spend longer in nice warm houses and cars- the result- snot dries up and defeats the purpose it was designed for i.e. - trapping the bugs and getting rid of them - dried snot cannot do this.

    Oh, you're probably thinking "heating vents" or something.

    Radiator:
    Heat vent (or register)

    At any rate, both are fantastic for drying stinky balaclavas.
