When cleaning a hockey helmet you should make sure you use a very mild soap and water. I would suggest a no tear shampoo and water mixture with a sponge. Just fully wash the helmet inside and out with the mixture and rinse well making sure you get all the soap off. Then fully dry the hockey helmet with a clean towel.
