2. Clean and disinfect the helmets in depth using Motul Helmet Interior Clean Formula. (Specifically, Motul Helmet interior Clean is a Bactericidal disinfectant for the inside of the helmet: cleans in-depth, disinfects and neutralises bad smells. It's formula non-irritating to the skin and it is dermatologically tested. )
3. Washing and polishing the scooter.
