After each dog and at the end of day disinfect and clean blades withH42 blade wash.
Detach blades from clipper and dip blades in blade wash jar and wipe with soft cloth or spray on blades with spray bottle
Keeping your blades nice and sharp!
Blades need to be sharpened when they start to drag and are not cutting as effectively.
