To get the most from your shaver, it's best to care for it properly to get the closest shave possible and to keep your shaver working for a long time. Read these tips below:
Cleaning your electric shaver:
To keep your shaver at its maximum operational level, it's best to clean your shaver after every use. Read your instructions carefully that come with your shaver
- and follow them completely.
One thing to keep in mind is DO NOT TOUCH THE SCREEN itself with the cleaning brush.
It's very fragile. Below the screen is the cutter and this is the part that needs brushing out.
Be sure to get all the accumulated whiskers out of the cutter. If you don't, you won't get the best performance from your shaver.
At least once a month you should remove the cutters and the combs from the retaining plates, and brush all the whiskers from the cutters and soak them in liquid cleaner and lubricate them. Be sure to keep each set as a matched pair.
Lubricating your shaver:
After you have cleaned your shaver in liquid cleaner, it is important to lubricate the metal surfaces of the screen and cutter. An aerosol spray lubricant like Philip's AL80C or Remington's “Shaver Saver” works really well.
By lubricating the parts, you free up any metal against metal binding. You should notice a pick up in the sound level of your shaver-s motor
- telling you that your shaver is operating at its maximum level.
Replacing the Screen and Cutter:
Usually after a year of use the screen will become thin and wear through. In order to get the closest shave from your shaver you should replace these parts. By not replacing them you may press harder to get a close shave or go over the same spot several times
- both of which can cause your skin to become very irritated.
