A nose hair trimmer is a small, handheld device that is used to trim the hair in the nose. It is a battery-operated trimmer that has a small, rotating blade that cuts the hair. The trimmer is inserted into the nostril and when the user turns it on, the blade starts to rotate and trim the hair.

What you will need

To safely and effectively clean your nose hair trimmer, you will need the following supplies:
-A mild soap, like dishwashing liquid
-A small brush, like a toothbrush
-A cup of water
-A clean, dry cloth
-Rubbing alcohol (optional)

First, disassemble your trimmer. Most trimmers will have just a few parts: the blade guard, the trimming head, and the body of the trimmer. Make sure you know where each part goes before you start cleaning. Second, wash all of the parts in mild soap and water. Be sure to brush away any hair or debris that may be clinging to the trimming head. Rinse all of the parts well and dry them with a clean cloth. If your trimmer is especially dirty or oily, you can disinfect the parts by wiping them down with rubbing alcohol. Once everything is dry, reassemble your trimmer and store it in a dry place.

Step One

If you want to get the most out of your nose hair trimmer, it is important to keep it clean. A clean trimmer will not only last longer, but it will also work more effectively. In this article, we will show you how to clean your nose hair trimmer step by step.

Prep your trimmer

If your trimmer is new, skip ahead to the next section. If you’ve had your trimmer for a while, it’s a good idea to prep it before each use.

To prep your trimmer:
-Wash the trimmer head with soap and water. Rinse it well and dry it with a soft cloth.
-Using a cotton swab, apply a small amount of trimmer oil to the cutting head.
-If your trimmer has a load indicator light, make sure it is off before proceeding to the next step.

Unplug your trimmer

To begin, find a small screwdriver and remove the head of your trimmer. This will give you access to the blades. Once the head is off, use a Q-tip or toothbrush to remove any hair that is stuck in the blades. Be sure to do this gently so you do not damage the blades. If your trimmer is waterproof, you can also rinse the head under running water.

Take off the blade guard

Start by taking off the blade guard, which is usually the colored plastic piece. If your trimmer doesn’t have a blade guard, skip this step.

Step Two

The metal comb can be rinsed with warm water and dish soap. Wipe the metal blades clean with a dry cloth after each use.

Clean the blades

The first step to maintaining your nose hair trimmer is to clean the blades. The best way to do this is to use a brush that came with the trimmer or a small, soft-bristled brush. Gently brush away any hair that’s clinging to the blades. If your trimmer came with a special cleaning solution, you can use that instead of water. Just follow the instructions on the bottle.

Once the blades are clear of hair, rinse them under warm water and dry them with a clean cloth. If your trimmer is battery-operated, take out the batteries and wipe down the area before putting fresh batteries in.

Clean the body

To clean the body of your nose hair trimmer, start by unplugging it and removing any attachments. Next, use a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol to clean around the blades. Be sure to avoid getting any liquids inside the trimmer. Once you’ve cleaned the blades, wipe down the body of the trimmer with a damp cloth. Finally, dry the trimmer thoroughly with a clean towel before storing it.

Step Three

Wet the trimmer. You can do this by running it under water for a few seconds or using a disinfecting wipes. Doing this will ensure that the trimmer is lubricated and will help to avoid rusting.

Dry your trimmer

Wipe down your nose hair trimmer with a dry towel to remove any water droplets. If your trimmer is still wet, bacteria can grow and cause irritation when you use it next.

To clean the head of your nose hair trimmer, remove it from the body of the trimmer. If your trimmer has a detachable head, wash it with soap and water. If your trimmer’s head is not detachable, wipe it down with a disinfecting wipe or a cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol.

Reassemble your trimmer

Now that the trimmer head is clean, you need to put your trimmer back together. Start by putting the blade guard back on the blades. Make sure that the blades are lined up with the notches on the blade guard, then snap the blade guard into place. If your trimmer has a plastic cover over the blades, put this back on now. Next, reattach the trimmer head to the handle. Again, make sure that the blades are lined up with the notches in the handle, then snap the head into place. If there is a cover for the trimmer head, put this on now. Finally, reattach any accessories that came with your trimmer, such as a comb attachment or storage case.

Step Four

Use a soft, dry cloth to clean the cutting head. If the trimmer is very dirty, you can remove the cutting head and wash it with soap and water. If your trimmer has a self-cleaning feature, follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

Test your trimmer

Now that you’ve put everything back together, it’s time to test your trimmer. To do this, turn it on and then hold the blade up to your nostril. If the blade is able to touch your nostril without going inside, then the trimmer is working properly. If not, then there is something wrong with your assembly and you will need to take it apart and try again.
