As electric shavers continue to grow in popularity, it is essential to know how to maintain them. This blog post will discuss the importance of lubricating electric razors before shaving and what you can use for a lubricant.
How to Properly Lubricate Your Electric Razor
Shaver’s are electrical products, so they will wear down over time. When this happens, you have to be sure to properly lubricate them, or else the blades may not cut as well, and it can even damage parts of your electric shaver.
The first thing you need to do is take off the headcover of your electric razor – if there isn’t already a button, then press down on either side until it pops up. Once that’s done, carefully remove the shaving unit from its head by gently pulling upwards with both hands. Then wipe away any hair particles left behind for them not to get stuck inside while you’re lubricating your electric razor.
Next, find appropriate mineral oil or light machine oil (just make sure it does not have any additional additives). Pour a few drops of the oil into your electric razor and gently rotate it around to ensure that all parts are covered.
Replace the shaving unit back onto the head base until you hear a click. Then attach the headcover by pressing down on the top left or right side, whichever is easier for you – then press down until the lock clicks in place. That’s all there is to lubricate an electric shaver!
Best Type of Lubricant for Your Electric Shaver
Mineral oil is a personal favorite of electric shaver users. It will keep your electric razor lubricated for up to one month, which means you can go that long without having to worry about it wearing down again.
Another excellent choice of shaving oils comes from Remington – they have their own line designed explicitly for electric shavers and trimmers called Shave Butter. A few drops will give any electric shaver the perfect smooth shave every time.
