Please note: These steps may not apply to every model, so please refer to your user manual or contact the support team.

Daily cleaning

  • Remove Hair Clippings: 
    • Dry Razors: After each use, tap the razor gently over a trash can or sink to remove loose hair clippings. 
    • Wet/Dry Razors: Rinse the shaving head under warm water after each use. 

Weekly cleaning

  • Disassemble and Brush: 
    • Disassemble the razor according to the manufacturer's instructions. 
    • Use a small brush (often provided with the razor) to clean the cutting blades and the inner parts of the head. Brush away any hair and debris. 
  • Rinse with Water: 
    • For waterproof models, rinse the shaving head and the internal parts under warm water. Add a few drops of liquid soap to the shaving head, run the razor for a few seconds, then rinse thoroughly. 
  • Use Cleaning Spray: 
    • Apply an electric razor cleaning spray to disinfect and lubricate the blades. This helps to maintain sharpness and prevent rust. 

Monthly deep cleaning

  • Soak in a Cleaning Solution: 
    • Soak the razor head in a solution of water and a few drops of dish soap or a specially formulated razor cleaner for about 5-10 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and let dry completely before reassembling. 
  • Use a Razor Cleaning Station: 
    • If your razor comes with a cleaning station, use it for a deep clean. These stations typically clean, lubricate, and dry the razor, ensuring optimal performance. 

Additional tips

  • Lubricate the Blades: 
    • Apply a drop of mineral oil or specialised razor oil to the blades after cleaning. This reduces friction and extends the life of the blades. 
  • Replace Worn Parts: 
    • Regularly check the condition of the blades and foils. Replace them according to the manufacturer’s recommendations, usually every 12-18 months. 
  • Avoid Excess Moisture: 
    • Ensure all parts are completely dry before reassembling to prevent rust and bacterial growth. 
  • Clean the Charging Port: 
    • Use a dry brush or compressed air to clean the charging port and any other areas where dust might accumulate. 
  • Follow any product specific care.
    •  Your product may have specific care guidance to keep your razor in the best condition, so be sure to check this out.
