How can I make my clipper blades last longer?
The best place to start is when ever possible clip clean dogs. Regularly
maintained dogs are great candidates for bath first, then clipping. When you
have a dog that is dirty and matted you want to keep a second set of blades set
aside to be used on them only. Cleaning blades really well after each dirty
matted dog is important. Start by dipping and running them in
Blade Wash then place a drop of
each end of both rails. (Rails-the two raised areas on the Comb-stationary part
of blade) Then let them sit on paper towels until the next really dirty matted
dog comes in. When cleaning your blades after clipping regularly maintained
dogs, I like to spray
Oster Clean and Care with the clipper turned so blade is up and down. Let
hair and spray cleaner drip out. Then place the
on the rails same as explained above. You have to remember
Oster’s Kool Lube’s main function is to cool clippers. You will always want
to follow with a little
the rails following each dog clipped. These simple habits will extend the life
of your blades.
