How Do I Clean My Wahl 5-in-1 Blade?


Wahl's 5-in-1 blades are a quick detachable blade having 5 adjustable cut lengths #9, #10, #15, #30 & #40. Wahl's 5-in-1 blades includes Wahl's 5-in-1 Fine, 5-in-1 Pro, 5-in-1 Coarse, 5-in-1 Diamond, & #45 & #10 Non-Adjustable blades that fit Wahl's 5-in-1 blade clippers including: Wahl's Bravura®, 5 Style Groom, Arco®, Creativa™, Figura®, Motion & Chromado clippers. It is important that these blades are regularly cleaned to avoid a build-up of damage and to help the clipper last longer.

Step 1: Set the blade to #40 blade setting (this will be the last setting on the right).

Step 2: Carefully place the blade against your palm and push the blade away with your thumb to remove it.

Step 3: Remove packed hair that may have gotten stuck in your blade; this can be removed by hand, or with the assistance of a cleaning brush. Also, consider using an air duster (canned air) to effectively push the hair off the blade.

Step 4: Carefully push down on the blade to open the top of the blade and remove possible build up from inside the blade.

Step 5: Re-attach the blade.

Step 6: Disinfect the blade with Wahl's Clini-Clip™. Let the spray sit for two minutes and then wipe away the excess spray using a soft cloth from the blade. (Note: leaving spray on for longer than 2-minutes can cause unwanted damage to your blade). Applying this spray is extremely important when working with more than one animal to reduce the risk of infection at home or in a professional setting.

Step 7: Using Wahl's 3-point oiling method use Wahl's Blade Oil and place three drops along the top of your 5-in-1 blade to effectively oil your blades to help reduce friction as well as the likelihood of the blades becoming dull, extending the lifespan of your blades. Please note: using other brands' blade oil may cause unwanted damage to your clipper or blades.

Step 8: Turn on the clipper for a few seconds to evenly distribute the blade oil throughout the blade.

Step 9: Wipe away the excess oil using a soft cloth.
