Nutcase Helmets Australia

Cleaning and storing your 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

  • 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.
