A bit niche, but does anyone have any tips for cleaning mould from helmet straps? I have 3, kept in the garage but just went to get one out and all 3 have some form of mould on them. I assume the garage has got a bit more humid than usual as I've been zwifting in there this winter whereas I hadn'r in previous years.

Mild bleach solution? For whole helmet, rinse well after
or disinfectant/Dettol

You'll need something bleach based, HG mould spray is very effective at killing off and removing mould spots... make sure you wipe off excess and then air it off really well, it's got a powerful smell.

Thanks for the suggestions. Just checked out Milton's website, they recommend the solution for getting mould off tents, so I guess potato/potarto.

Washing up bowl of hot soapy water and a scrubbing brush.

Had a similar issue on high chair straps (similar material). Milton is good, soaking them in a concentrated bio clothes washing liquid works well too. If the straps are removable probably worth doing rather than soaking the polystyrene but wouldn’t do any harm to clean the helmet as well - you might not see any mould on there but it’s probably hiding. Good luck.

Well done for getting Zwift and helmets into the same post!
