Introduction: Braun Shaver Cleaning Hack

About: I love to make things in the workshop. Find me at makerandco_ on Instagram

My Braun shaver system has small cleaning pods - when empty they can be cleaned and refilled for less than half the price of new ones

Step 1: Remove Used Up Cleaning Pod

Press the button on the left hand side of the unit and remove used cleaning cartridge

Step 2: Rinse

Upend the cartridge and then rinse clean with warm water. Let it air dry or if impatient use a hair dryer

Step 3: Refill and Finish

Used isopropyl/rubbing alcohol to refill to 75-80% capacity. Reinsert cleaning cartridge - the light on the cleaning system will turn green. Technically this probably voids your warranty - but I've done this procedure several times over with no ill effects and it is at least 50% cheaper

    The original cleaner has some thin oil in it as well. I was hoping to see what you added. I have put rubbing alcohol in mine too. Needs some kind of lube added

    It was so expensive for me to continue to buy those refills (and they would evaporate very quickly because of the alcohol) that I just stopped using it. I moved but I just might bring the base back with me when I go visit the parents. Had no idea something this basic would work.
