How to Clean a Philips Norelco Shaver

by Matthew Fortuna

The Philips Norelco shaver is one of the most popular grooming products sold by Philips. Getting the smoothest shave possible with a Philips Norelco requires you to clean the device regularly.

Step 1

Open the head of the shaver and tap it gently against the side of a sink to allow any loose whiskers to fall free from the head and the blades.

Step 2

Use the brush that came with your shaver to brush any remaining whiskers from the inside and outside of the shaver.

Step 3

Run water through the inside and outside of the shaver, removing clumps of hair and cleaning dirty parts.

Step 4

Disassemble the shaver head--remove the head from the body and remove the blades from the head.

Step 5

Soak the parts of your shaver in boiling water or disinfecting soap to deep-clean the shaver. Reassemble the pieces for use.
