Helmet Strap Tip

Ever noticed after a while that your helmet strap "drags" when you are pulling it through the D-rings? Take a bowl of warm water and put in about 1/2 cap of Downey fabric softener. Soak the strap for a few minutes, pull it out and let it air dry (don't wring it out). Next time, the strap will pull through much easier.

Just thought I'd pass this along. I'm old and need all the help I can get
