Using unsterilized clipper blades while grooming pets ((And Humans)) is an easy way to pass bacteria and skin infections from one animal to another. A pet groomer must sterilize clipper blades after use on every animal((Barbers Should Too)). Whether grooming cats or dogs, the clipper blade comes in immediate contact with the animal’s skin and any infections. Without proper sterilization, the infections may be passed on to the next animal the blade comes in contact with. Have a question? Get an answer from a veterinarian now!

1. ◦1

Wash the adjusters. Fill your sink with hot, soapy water to clean your snap=on adjusters. Snap-on adjusters are the clips that snap onto the clippers to allow you to adjust the length of the hair that you will cut. They can become grimy and dirty from use and should be periodically washed thoroughly. Submerge them in the hot, soapy water and use a cloth to scrub them well. Lay them out on a towel to dry.

◦2

Clean out the clippers. Never submerge your clippers in water. This could cause electrocution. Instead, you will want to take your hair clipper brush and carefully clean out all of the hairs you see on or inside your clippers. Hair can clog up clippers and can make them not run as well as they should. Using a Phillips head screwdriver, carefully remove the blade casing and clean out the inside of your clippers thoroughly. After your have cleaned out all of the hair, you will be ready to lubricate your clippers.

Spray lubricating oil very lightly onto the working mechanisms of the clippers, inside the blade area. Make sure that you do not spray too much oil onto the clippers, only a light spray should do it.

Once your clippers are oiled, replace the blade cover and tightly screw the blade cover back onto the clippers. Place everything back into the clipper’s storage case and it will be ready to use when you need to trim your hair.
