Maybe. Maybe not.: One can just use a big vacuum cleaner with a small brush attachment, and then brush and vacuum the helmet. Lice are little bugs, and they will get sucked up. Nits are glued to hairs, so there won't be a free nit in a helmet. Any nit will still be glued to a hair, which will get sucked up. Lysol is not needed. ...Read more
