Not every oil is ideal for Wahl clippers
Every Wahl clipper is packaged with a tube or bottle of Wahl professional blade oil. Our team recommends only using Wahl blade oil on your Wahl clippers and blade, as using other aerosol type lubricants can evaporate leaving the metal susceptible to corrosion which can severally damage your blade.
Although Wahl Professional Animal blades are designed to be protected from corrosion, they will eventually rust if not taken care of properly. Take the time to properly clean the direct and hair from your blade and apply oil to the entire blade to prevent corrosion.
Wahl recommends using the "5 point oiling method" on our Ultimate and Competition series blades.
Place one drop on either side of the blade and then three along the top. Let clipper run for roughly 10 seconds, to ensure the oil can work its way through the blade. Turn off and wipe away any residue with a soft, dry cloth.
Also please consider purchasing Wahl's Clini Clip, a spray designed to kill bacteria in 2 minutes. A surface disinfectant ideal for sanitary purposes when grooming multiple animals with the same equipment.
