Essential Gear: Molecule Racing Gear Cleaning System

Driver Gear, Reviews I By Luciana D'Andretta I August 11, 2017

After taking the time to carefully select and purchase your racing safety apparel, you want to make sure you protect your investment. Weekends at the track and under the hood of your race car can take its toll on your fire suit, nomex underwear and helmet. With the help of Molecule cleaning systems, you can keep your gear smelling and looking fresh as the first time you put it on.

Watch Winding Road Racing’s Shawn Stout talk more in detail about the Molecule Racing Gear Cleaning System below:

Recommended usage:

  • Molecule Spot Cleaner: use Spot Cleaner prior to washing your nomex. This “pre-treatment” cleaner helps break-down tough spots and stains that can degrade fabric performance. Use Spot Cleaner with Molecule Wash.
  • Molecule Wash: Safe to use in conventional washing machines, Molecule Wash can be used on racing suits, nomex underwear and racing gloves. Wash contains antimicrobial agents that prevent any future bacterial orders, and its concentrated formula effectively cleans your apparel, helping to maintain fabric freshness. The formula does not interfere with the fabrics breathability, so your safety apparel remains uncompromised. Best of all, it contains a fabric brightener to keep your gear looking as good as new.
  • Molecule Protector: Use Protector to keep your gear clean and safe. The Protector helps apparel resist contaminants that can degrade fabric performance. Best of all, this spray contains fabric sunscreen that can help reduce color fading caused by UV rays. Protector also helps resist petroleum-based stains so your suit can look clean all race weekend long.
  • Molecule Refresh: This spray is a great option for when gear needs a little cleaning boost, but you don’t have time to do a full wash (say after Friday practice for a weekend race). Refresh reduces odors and helps prevent future odors with its antimicrobial agent. Its skin-friendly ingredients prevent irritation and keeps you smelling fresh for those Saturday qualifiers.
  • Molecule Helmet Care Kit: This kit containing Fabric Refresher, Rain Repel, Anti-Fog and Cleaner and Polish are key to keeping your helmet and shield clean and functional. These handy sprays are great to throw in your gear bag and to ensure your helmet is clean, shining and protected. Just be sure to spray your helmet after you’re done racing for the day so it has time to dry.

Available in two sizes, 4oz and 16oz, Molecule Racing Gear Cleaners are essential to maintain your safety apparel's integrity and extend the life of your gear. Find individual sprays and complete kits on
