How to clean helmet? — The Bump

How to clean helmet?

Hey ladies, How do yall clean your DOC bands? I am currently using rubbing alcohol and it's doing no good. Oliver sweats so much at night, it's starting to even make his head smell. Any tips?

  • They told me the only thing that I could use was alcohol pads.  It didn't ever smell good.  I just bathed him once a day and washed his head 2-3xday.

  • I wiped it out with alcohol every night.  Towards the end I would wash it out with dish soap once a week.  I just made sure I got all the soap out and it was fully dry before putting it back on.  I was getting desperate, it stunk so much!  Didn't hurt it at all. 

    Do you give him a bath every night? 

    Good luck. 

  • We were told only to use rubbing alcohol on the helmet.  They recommended leaving the helmet in the sun for an hour to help with the smell.  We found that works.  DS sweats alot as well.  We have also been really good about giving him a bath every day and washing his hair and head.
