- 1 Wet Day on Dirt Bikes
- 1 Helmet
- 1 Pair Leather Gloves
- 1 Helmet Carrying Bag
- 1 Dark Hallway Closet
- We begin this recipe by taking an Introductory Class in Dirt Biking. Class must be conducted in a light rain for optimal conditions.
- Wear your regular street riding leather motorcycle gloves. Wear all day in the rain until maximum saturation sets in. Your hands may or may not turn completely black from bleeding dye during this portion of the recipe.
- At the completion of the awesome day in the dirt, jam your wet leather gloves into your helmet. For our dish, we used an Arai helmet but you may substitute this ingredient with the brand of your choosing.
- Distractedly place helmet into a carrying bag and zip closed.
- You do not want to skip this step, this is crucial to the success of the recipe. Completely forget that your gloves and helmet liner are wet.
- Simmer wet gloves in the helmet at 72 degrees on a dark closet shelf for 1 week.
Voila! After fermenting in the closet for one week, you will have 1 pair of moldy gloves and a biohazard in your helmet. Simmer to taste. More time should allow for additional color and furriness.
Thankfully, Kenny used his spare helmet for this exercise. Though there are no visible signs of mold in the padding of the helmet it must be cleaned anyway. I have heard for a long time now that you can wash your helmet in the dishwasher. Have you tried this?
The gloves on the other hand, I don’t know what to do about. They have actual mold fur on them. Can that be cleaned effectively? Chalk it up to experience and buy a new pair? Any advice would be appreciated!
