Oiling & Lubrication:
Essential to keep your clipper blades cutting smoothly and reduce demand for re-sharpening. Adopting our simple 3-2-1 approach, will keep your blades in excellent working order.
If you’re clipping for prolonged periods, using the same blade, lubricate with more oil and, consider using a coolant spray if and when your blade feels hot to the touch. This will help prevent clipper rash and skin irritation. Applying oil little and often will prevent your blades from getting choked with hair clippings, grease and dander which, can hinder their cutting performance.
Cleaning & Flushing:
Equally important to prolonged the working life of your blades. Adopting a daily regime can help remove any build-up of contamination and keep your blades cutting like new.
If your blade starts to drag, leaving clipper lines, this often means the blade is choked with hair clippings, grease and dander. To quickly remedy this, submerge the blade in a shallow dish of cleaning solution, allowing the clipper (still running) to flush out any contamination trapped beneath the cutting blade.
Always keep the blade parallel with the surface of the solution and, never submerge the clipper itself. Allow the clipper to run for 30-60 seconds, then lift and tilt the blade, allowing any excess fluid to drain away. Wipe the outside surface of the blade with a clean dry cloth and, reapply blade oil before clipping again.
