Please see the video below on how Wahl recommends cleaning your detachable blade.
Step 1: Carefully detach your blade from your clipper
Step 2: Remove hair from the blade
Step 3: Remove the blade and remove the hair that has built up under it.
Step 4: Reattach the blade by sliding it onto the blade lever, and then turn the clipper on. Snap the blade into place.
Step 5: To sanitize/disinfect: spray the blade with Wahl's Clini-Clip and let sit for 2 minutes.
Step 6: Wipe away excess spray (leaving spray on for longer than 2-minutes can potentially cause rust or damage to your blade).
Step 7: Using Wahl's Blade Oil oil your blade using Wahl's 5 points oiling method. You will want to place three drops along the top of your blade and one drop on either side of the blade.
Step 8: Turn your clipper on for a few seconds so that the oil can effectively work its way down into the blade.
Step 9: Turn clipper off
Step 10: Wipe away excess oil
Step 11: reattach blade to your clipper
Please Note: this method is used to properly clean and maintain your blades but does not replace the need to replace your blades or send your blades in for sharpening when they become dull or unusable. Wahl does offer an excellent blade sharpening service available for a fraction of the cost of purchasing a new blade.
