Right, i have a serious problem,
before this thread is locked or I am redirected to another kind of site all together it is very much bike related.
I pride myself on my personal hygiene but cycling five days a week is really taking its toll. I do have wash and change facilities at work and I am always sweet smelling and fresh but my helmet and my gloves stink so bad they are no longer allowed in the house. people have also commented on the funky smell coming from my storage drawer at work as they walk past.
The helmet pads are washed frequently, but the straps and im sure the polystyrene is now impregnated with stinky vinegar sweat.
but by far the worse stink is from my gloves, im actually taking a high degree of bizarre fascination and even pride in how much it is possible for these gloves to stink, they are leather/suedey type material and cant be washed, spraying them with deoderant actually made the smell worse, but they are still pretty much mint and have years left in them, and they are so comfy too.
So does anyone have any advice on how to stop stinky fingers and a cheesey helmet, without having to replace perfectly good albeit smelly kit?
