Helmet smell

I've got a three year old helmet, and I ride Supermoto once a week. The helmet has now aquired a not very attractive smell of sweat. Is it possible to remove this? How do you wash a helmet? The lining is obviously not removable.

Will I have to throw it away?

RE: Helmet smell

I wash mine with shampoo and it seems to work fine.
If the lining comes out, great. If not, squeeze out what you can and leave it in front
of a dehumidifier if you have one. It will take 1-2 days to completely dry out.
