So I would just pull pads out and wash them... the soap may not compromise the plastics but I know that some chemicals can compromise the coating on the helmet... just like hardhats your helmet should still be shiny on the outside.. a dulling of that sheen could indicate a compromise in the protection capability of the helmet. I am paranoid about that kind of thing and I think the safest course of action is only to wash the foam bits... of course I am no expert and not much of a Chemical Engineer... just a lowly Elec. Engineer and we think water is bad...
If I can't eat it, race it or sleep with it then whats the point?

If you can't remove the liner, there some stuff called "helmet renew" from Pro Clean 1000 that you can spray in and it foams and pulls the oils and sweat from your nasty head out of the padding, then you just wipe it out and let it dry... Works fairly well..
You should have that looked at....

This is pretty simple but real good info for me. Just what I was looking for. I've thrown out stink pots in the past because they were too nasty, but I didn't care that much for them anyway. THIS particular brain bucket is one I really like. I'm gonna give it a good washing tonight and if it gets ruined I'm gonna sue every single one of you dirty bastages for $10 million ! ! !

After a long hard day of sweat, pack the inside of the helmet with wadded up newspaper or paper towels. That will wick the moisture and stink out while it dries..

Along with occasional cleaning will keep that "not so fresh feeling" away.
