How to Clean Your Snack Helmet

With the NFL in full swing and the carbs are loaded in your snack helmets, it’s time to learn how to clean your new prized possession – the snack helmet.

How to Clean Your Football Snack HelmetMany people have been asking me a bunch of questions recently on proper ways to clean the helmet, so I thought it would be wise to write this out for you.

One of the great thing about these snack helmets is how easy they are to clean. With my first snack helmet, I would put everything in the dishwasher after each game because it would be dirty from all the awesome snacks I used. After a few washes in the dishwasher, I noticed the team logo started to peel. This was due to the high temperature wash and super hot water.

So, as tempting as it is, do not put the actual helmet in the dishwasher! Your team’s logo and any other decals on the helmet will start to peel or fade.

What you should be doing is hand washing the actual helmet and put the containers in the dishwasher.

Here is a simple step-by-step breakdown:

  1. Eat your snacks
  2. Disassemble the containers from the snack helmet (they snap off easily)
  3. Place the containers in the top shelf of the dishwasher. If you have never done this, ask a grown up to help you. 😉
  4. Wash your football snack helmet in warm soapy water with a soft cloth. Do not use any type of abrasive material because this will scratch your helmet.

Done! Of course, if you want to give your helmet a realistic look, use an abrasive scrubber and make up a story that you used to play for the NFL. 🙂

Do you have any washing tips? Let me know in the comments below.

    Thanks for the warning on how to clean the snack helmet! Scrubbers would make them look like used helmets for sure!

    Hello
    l could not imagine anyone putting a helmet snack in the dishwasher, but then stranger things have happened.
    But you have explained it so well and in an easy to understand way, that no one has an excuse to go out with a dirty helmet.
    When drying the helmet, do you put it in a flat surface to dry or what will be the best way to dry?

    Hey, I loved your post!!!
    Saves me a few bucks on buying the helmet and since I love art and could do a little bit more by trying it myself for my baby brother.
    Is it that effective as a normal helmet??
    Loved the post and hope you keep posting !!!!

    Some good tips here Jay. I ordered my Seattle Seahawks snack helmet and am loving it. Perfect for the big games even if your team doesn’t make it to the Super Bowl (although much nicer if your snack helmet reflects the actual team playing).

    Cleaning these are a breeze and while the trays are being washed, you can even wear your helmet to a local touch football pick-up game (ok, the last part was a joke).
