Jizzy helmets

Post by SimonMW » Tue Mar 14, 2017 11:18 am

My cheapness prevents me going out and buying a new helmet every two minutes. Though my current Rocker has now started on it's journey to mankiness, with, well, mould forming in the lining. Anyone had any luck removing this from theirs, or should I just stop being a stinky bastard and just buy a new helmet?

Sweet's local distributor changed the lining in my Rocker (a warranty issue). I think the replacement charge was 19 euros.

I just contacted Sweet directly and they put me in touch with the distributor.

Contact Sweet Service in the UK and request a new liner.

Congratulations on your post title.

Agree with above, but if that doesn't work, try that baby sterilizing stuff "Milton" is it? Something like that.

Works well at getting skank out of stuff and it's not damaging. But test on an area first obviously.

I have no kids, but surely that wouldn't be any more than a temporary solution? Babies are predisposed to soil themselves frequently aren't they?

Could something like this do the job?

I can see this thread going downhill fast... and from a title of Jizzy Helmets that's quite the feat.

But isn't that Piss off stuff specifically for those that chose to urinate in their suits when surfing?
I've been pretty scared at times on the river, but never so bad my lid gets a soaking.

Yes, mostly - but it also has antibacterial ingredients which should get it clean, like a pissy wetsuit...

I have tried contacting Sweet, but they haven't bothered to reply... Though I can't see how the lining removes from the helmet?

Not necessarily. Milton is basically a really mild bleach so should last as long as most other cleaners, i.e. however long it takes the "jizz" to grow back
temperature is a state of mind

Well, I think it's marvellous. Is it easy to apply without getting it in their eyes?

Ask your gran how to get rid of mildew, its not rocket science.

(she will probably say soak it in Milton)

I've already tried Milton. It didn't work.

You probably need a new liner then, or a different helmet - my WW comp has never had a mildew/mould/jizz problem

A bit of jizz in the eye is every man's worst nightmare...

Not good, but at least the baby will have been sterilised.

This thread made me smile... Depending on where the mould is can't you just get some detol and soak a towel and shuve it in there over night and give it a thorough wash afterwards?

I can't stand bad smells... I would have to sort that out even if it cost me a bit.
