How to maintain and clean your electric shaver

Cleaning an electric razor doesn’t have to be a challenge. Read Braun’s step-by-step guide and learn how to look after your shaver using Braun Clean and Renew. With these steps you can easily discover how to keep your electric shaver clean and ready to use! 

1. Professional cleaning: Get new shaver feeling at the touch of a button

Some Braun Series shaver models come with a Clean&Charge cleaning device. Just push a button and it cleans, dries, and recharges your shaver automatically. So easy and absolutely hygienic.

2. Manual cleaning: Rinsing under running hot water

Almost every Braun shaver can be rinsed quickly and easily under running hot water. The cleaning effect can be improved by using a bit of standard liquid soap. And another tip: to give your shaver optimal care, you should put a drop of oil on the cutter block once in a while.

Cleaning with the brush

After removing the cutter head, the cutter block is easy to clean with the brush. When you’re done, switch the shaver on for two or three seconds. Careful: Never, ever clean the cutter foil with the brush. 

Cleaning with the cleaning spray

The cleaning spray helps clean your shaver thoroughly, removing all traces of sebum. After spraying both cutter parts, the residue is easy to remove. 

3. Maintaining: Keeping your razor at peak performance

For 100% performance, we recommend replacing all cutter parts every 12-18 months. After 18 months, you have shaved as many hairs as there are blades of grass on a soccer field! So it`s definitely high time to replace the cutter parts for your shaver to deliver 100% performance again. Since the cutter foil and cutter operate like the two parts of a pair of scissors, they inevitably wear out and become dull, which could increase irritation and prevent a closer shave.
