I never thought this would be my first suggestion, but here goes....just for fun....

Light Day pads make great sweat bands inside your helmet. Really, I'm not kidding!

Just peel and stick...and they really soak up ALOT of sweat. They keep the sweat from running down into the top foam of your googles and into your eyes. Just make sure they are totally fragrance free....otherwise, you'll suffer from burning on your skin...and the perfume smell might attract varmits or guys with strange night habits....

Heavy Kotex Pads....the really big ones....are excellent for a first aid kit.

They work much better than any gauze out there...they are sealed from the factory, so they are reasonably sanitary for medical needs.....(like all the gravel or glass or whatever in your wound is any cleaner!)

You can really handle a large laceration with maxi-pads and they are easy to pack and carry.

Since they soak up water so well, you can also soak them in cold water for use as a pack on a burn or abrasion...or even as a cool pad on the forehead of a rider who has heat stroke or needs cooling down fast. Just dip the maxi-pad and squeeze it over the head, neck, upper body, etc....redip and continue...it works very well.

Finally....for environmental use.....they soak up oil spills or other engine fluid spills very well. Just drop them back in the baggie you carry them in and pack them out of the woods with you. You can use them to catch leaking gas tanks or other fluids also....anywhere you need to stop a leak.

Anybody got any other uses for these?

Hey Bobby,

When you go to the store to buy these things for your ancillary uses, do you tell the clerk they are "for my wife or significant other" or do you admit they are for you? Had to ask....

Never could get used to the guys in the pits using these for sweat! EEEWWWW-

I could see the medical benefits for severe wounds or something- but as for me- I will stick with a first aid kit....

Straight up tampons are great for those cuts as well. You can cut a piece off and sink it into the wound with preasure to help stop the bleeding. Also good for a nose bleed since you can just shove it up there and it won't come out. Spent a many day in the wrestling room growing up with a tampon in my nose

A tampon up your nose? With the string hanging down? Interesting...

That's just grose! (the tampon up your nose) But Duggan has in the past used the sanitary napkin on his forhead. It really does work. Of course he got the tip from Matt Chappa.

Does anybody else see a marketing potential here? Maybe Fox or Thor or somebody would like to develop a product that looks a little less feminine and give it a cool name...like FOX Helmet Sweat-Stoppers...THOR Oil Soakers...

I have actually seen something at our local bike shop. It almost looks like they made it. A thin sponge w/elastic around it. Imagine that...a sponge!
