How to Clean an Electric Shaver

You’ve picked out your new electric shaver, or you received it as a gift, and you’re excited to start using it and to see the result of a close, smooth shave. Or, maybe you’re still researching the best type of electric razor to buy for your needs. If so, you should check out our list of the Top 5 best men’s shavers for 2013-2014.

The best electric shavers will give you a closer and smoother shave without any cuts or skin irritation. But remember, with any type of electronic tool, over time your shaver will need cleaning. Even if it is touted as a self cleaning shaver, if the shaver is never manually cleaned it will stop working properly. These simple tips for cleaning your electric shaver will make your shaver like new, giving you a smoother, closer and cleaner shave.

How often should I clean my electric shaver?

It is best to manually deep clean your shaver after every 2-3 shaves, with general cleaning after every shave. When cleaning, you must make sure that all hair and skin cells inside have been properly removed. If you never clean your shaver, you’re losing out on a great investment. If the shaver gets clogged up with excess hairs it will put a strain on the motor and cause it to break down faster. Also, without proper cleaning, your shaver could be playing host to unpleasant bacteria!
What is the best way to clean an electric shaver?

Each electric shaver comes with a manufacturer booklet with important instructions concerning how to use your shaver over time and how to know when to clean it. The manual will also note some of the best tools to use for that specific razor, and which to avoid.

It is important to read through the manual and adopt these instructions. Below are the general best cleaning techniques for all brands, but the manual will show how to remove the parts you need to clean.

1) Turnoff the main switch and unplug the shaver.

2) Remove the cutter head by lifting it off its support. (Check your razor user manual if you’re having trouble).

3) Use a small brush to loosen the accumulated hairs from the cutter head. Most electric shavers come with a brush you can use, or just use a small paintbrush. Do not tap the head on the counter to remove the whiskers, this could damage the precision combs.

4) Run the brush over all parts associated with the cutter head, such as the frame.

5) Dismantle all other parts of the shaver that can be removed.

6) Using the small brush, hot water and a little liquid soap, clean all parts of the shaver. Instead of soap and water, you could use a special cleaning fluid that is sold anywhere that electric shavers are sold.

7) Rinse the parts in clean hot water.

8) Dry the parts with a towel and then allow to air dry.

9) Put the shaver back together.

10) For the best possible razor cleaning result, you should use a bit of oil to lubricate all metal surfaces of the razor screen and cutter while it is running. A aerosol lubricant such as Philip’s part no. AL80C or the “Shaver Saver” from Remington work great. Use the lubricant sparingly, and there’s no need to wipe it off.

Proceed with your shaving!

With the simple steps laid out here, you’ll be able to get a clean shave with out all the hassle of an ill-performing razor. Cleaning your electric razor will prolong its life and performance and offer both hygienic, cosmetic and functional benefits.
