Helmets will often come coated in oil when you receive them. The oil helps to prevent rust and tarnishing while shipping the item. This is a good way to protect items when not in use, but you don't want to get oil all over you when you are using it.
How to clean off the oil
The best way to remove this oil is by using lacquer thinner to clean it off then let it air dry. You can then test it with a cotton cloth to see if you've gotten off all of the oil. You are now ready to use your item!
Storing your item
Since helmets that are not made from stainless steel are prone to rust, it is recommended that you re-coat the item if you are going to store it for any extended amount of time. A coat of WD-40 should work well.
