my 'comfort' liner n cheek pads are removable. The lil booky that came with my helmet says to hand wash and air dry when required.

Or

You could just spray frebreeze in it to kill the orders.

Also get some rain-x for the outside of the visor and fog-x for the inside, stuff works wonders. One good treatment of fog-x lasts about 2 months for me, rain-x has to be reapplied everytime you clean the visor.

Always wondered how well they work on newer helmets, what kind you got? How fast do you have to be going for it to work? Stil works on humid nights?

I clean the out side of the helmet with Eagle 1 spray detailer and use an eye glass cleaner on the screen

Another thing that helps is wearing a skull cap (like the ones sold by Under Armour or something similar). I wear a skull cap all the time and they do keep the stink away from the helmet. Also, let the helmet air out once in a while.

Another thing you might consider: I put one of those dryer fabric softener sheets in my helmets between uses...keeps it smellin' fresh
