Cleaning of Clipper Blades
It’s important to keep your clipper blade clean since a dirty pair of clippers can cause many problems for your dog.
Proper maintenance and cleaning of your clipper will also ensure that they last for a longer period of time, which means no money on new ones.
Remove the Clipper Blades
Loosen the two screws on top of the clippers that hold the head plate down. Next, use your fingers to remove the head or blades from the clippers and detach them.
Cleaning of Hair
Start the cleaning process by brushing off all the visible hair on the head plate and inside the top of the clipper. There should be a small square hole where most of the remaining hair has bunched together. Clean all of it out.
After that, put the blades and clipper head in warm water for a few minutes; this will loosen smaller hair that are very difficult to remove. Last but not least put blade-cleaning solution on a toothbrush and brush the head and blade until they are completely clean. Dry the head and blade with a towel and let it dry for a few minutes.
Oil the Blade
Thoroughly dry the blades then reassemble them with clipper. Before turning on clippers, place a few drops of machine oil on top of the blades, and be sure not to add too much.
Once you’ve finished lubricating your blade, you’ll have a clean, perfectly maintained set of clippers. Ideally, this should be done after each use of clippers.
