Motorcycle Helmets: What is comfort padding? Why is it important? How to take care of it?

You already know enough about the comfort padding from above. It is important because no one wants to be uncomfortable. If your helmet gets in the way of your motorcycling, you'd stop using it. The comfort lining needs very little care, actually. It needs to be washed now and then. And that's about it.

If your helmet does not come with removable interiors, I've usually found that soaking the helmet in a bucket works fine. To keep the lining soft, avoid using a heater or blower to dry the helmet faster. Just ignore it for a couple of days and let it dry naturally.

If your helmet does have removable insides, well, just whip out the instructions, do the business and wash them. Remember, helmets like neutral pH stuff, so baby shampoo or detergents meant for delicate fabrics are the ones to go for. Most materials will come clean just with soap, you don't need to scrub anything hard.
