Cleaning and Storing a Helmet

We know how important it is to keep that Nutcase helmet nice and shiny.  Here are a few suggestions on how to take care of your cool new lid.

  • Be gentle, helmets are generally made of materials that can be damaged by many commonly-available cleaners. Petroleum-based solvents or cleaners are especially dangerous. They can damage a helmet so that its protective capabilities are significantly reduced. Many times, this damage is not visible. For best results, clean your Nutcase helmet using a soft cloth or sponge, warm water and mild soap (such as a mild dish soap). Allow the helmet to air dry and then store it in a cool, dry place where it won’t get damaged.
  • Keep your Nutcase helmet out of direct sunlight for long periods of time. For example, in direct sunlight a dark gear bag, the interior of a car, or an automobile trunk can get hot enough to cause heat damage (damaged helmets will appear to have uneven or bubbly surfaces). Therefore, when not being used for a period of time we recommend that the helmet be placed back into its box or case and stored in a cool, dry place.
  • Stinky pads got your social life down?  Fortunately for you, Nutcase pads can be removed and thrown in washer on gentle and then set them out to air dry.
  • Lice Removal... yes we said it.  If you have a Little Nutty in your household, you are sure to come across these little critters at some point.  Here is our advice how to get rid of them.

• Do not use a spray of any type.
• Place your Nutcase helmet into an airtight plastic bag for 48 hours. Then, remove the pads and use a soft cloth or sponge, warm water and mild soap to clean the surface.
• Discard the pads and plastic bag (keep bag out of reach of children due to suffocation hazard) and visit your local dealer or contact the manufacturer for replacement pads.
