How does a cleaning station work?

Don't see yourself making the effort to clean that electric shaver every time? I get that. In that case, it's a good idea to consider an electric shaver with a cleaning station. That saves you a lot of work. I'll explain how it works.

1. How does a cleaning station work?

How a cleaning station works

Want to clean an electric shaver using a cleaning station? Basically, all you need to do is to click the electric shaver into the station, shaver head down. The station will then pump the cleaning fluid past the shaver head. That fluid is alcohol-based and effectively removes hairs, skin flakes, and other debris.

The cleaning fluid also contains a lubricant. This lubricates the razor blades, so they stay strong and last longer. Next, the heating element rapidly dries the shaver head. On top of that, the cleaning station also serves as a docking station; afterwards, the electric shaver will be charged as well as clean.

2. What's the advantage?

No matter how carefully you manually clean an electric shaver, a cleaning station will always do it better. That's mostly because of the cleaning fluid that's pumped past the shaver head at high pressure. You can't do that by hand. A cleaning station is a way to extend the lifespan of the shaver head significantly without any effort on your part. On top of that, it reduces the chance of razor burn.

3. What do you need to keep in mind?

Cleaning fluid cartridges

Be aware that you always need enough cleaning fluid for the cleaning station to work. You'll always have to buy refills with cartridges to make sure your electric shaver stays clean. They come in sets of 2 or 3.
