Shaving is a major part of a man’s routine, but it can be quite time consuming; not just the process itself, but also the cleaning and maintenance of the device. In our fast-paced world, time is of the essence, so modern shavers are equipped with impressive technology, and most come with self-cleaning stations that are guaranteed to save you a lot of time.
The blades, or foils, that make-up the main part of the shaver are on its head. That is where the hair, skin cells and other debris are collected after shaving. with the traditional way of cleaning, the shaver requires you to dismantle the unit, wash it then re-assemble it when the parts are dry. Forgetting to clean it immediately after use is unhygienic, and using a brush to clean it increases the risk of damage to the foil because it gets deformed quite easily. Shavers with cleaning stations take care of these problems by automatically cleaning the shaver for you. Most units also have lubricating and charging functions. By regularly maintaining your device, they make sure that they are always ready for use.
On the downside, they do take up extra space on your bathroom counter. It is important to store them on counters that have a tough, protective finish as the cleaning solution can leak and damage certain surfaces. The cleaning liquid is also a fire hazard. Shavers and cleaning stations priced as a package deal are economical, but they are still more expensive when compared to individual electric shavers (which are also quite costly in their own right). You have the option to make a separate purchase, but keep in mind that cleaning stations are not universal – you will have to find one that works with your shaver. Another additional cost is the cartridge for the cleaning solution that needs to be replaced every once in a while.
Most shaver cleaning stations work with a touch button. Some units also allow you to select the cleaning and drying functions in advance for the next time you use it. They use a special cleaning solution that regularly sanitizes your shaver. Most models have lubricating functions, to keep the blades in good condition for precise shaving every time. They are also conveniently furnished with an automatic charging function, providing you with an all-in-one device. A quick-charge feature makes it even more functional.
