How to clean your electric trimmer?
Most people tend to just rinse off their trimmer after use. But that isn’t enough. It might still have hair, debris, dead skin and dust deposited on the corners of the device. To clean it properly you should follow these steps.
1. Make sure your trimmer can be rinsed. Some cordless electric trimmers are not meant to be rinsed. You must always read the instructions carefully before you buy a trimmer.
2. Your electric trimmer comes with a tiny brush. After trimming your hair, the first thing you do is brush off the tiny hair and debris from the teeth of the clipper. This should be done before rinsing it.
3. Spray some hand wash on your trimmer and use a spare toothbrush to brush the trimmer’s teeth. This will disinfect your trimmer.
4. After rinsing it properly, dry it properly. Then you must store the trimmer in a dry and cool place.
