I haven't used that method in a while, but it works. Biggest thing is to make sure you THOROUGHLY rinse out all the soap, or you'll end up with a worse smell than you started with.
Nowadays I remove the removables and give it a good "sponge bath." But I change out helmets every two or three years typically.
