The Supply SE is engineered with our Clog-Free design. We made it so water can easily pass through it, so that hair and cream easily rinse out between each pass.
However, hair and shaving cream residue sometimes have a mind of their own and want to defy even the most precise 21st century engineering. So, we wanted you to have a quick guide on how to give your Supply SE a deep clean.
The SE is made out solid PVD Chrome-Coated Aluminum. There aren’t any moving parts and very few removable parts, so it’s simple to clean.
Start with Water
The first step is to leave your SE under hot running water. This will wash off any hairs that are hanging onto the razor handle and the blade. It should also wash away any shaving cream residue.
After you rinse it out, shake out any excess water.
Break Out the Sponge
Sometimes removing shaving cream residue requires more than just hot water. It’s safe to use dish soap and a soft brush or sponge to scrub your razor. It won’t damage the finish and will effectively remove any residue.
Just be sure to thoroughly rinse and dry your SE when you’re finished washing and scrubbing it.
Time to Sterilize
Multi-blade razors are known for growing bacteria between shaves because they don’t rinse out well. Skin, cream and hair lives between the blades and grows all kinds of undesirable germs. But we digress.
The SE does not have that problem, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t good to sterilize it on a semi-regular basis.
You can start with a short dip into rubbing alcohol. This will kill germs and remove any water build up in the tighter nooks of the razor.
You can follow up with Barbicide or any other barber grade cleaner to fully sterilize it.
You don’t need to do this every time you want to clean your SE, but it’s a good habit to get into for a solid shaving ritual.
If you’re ready to take your cleaning routine a step further, you’re going to need to remove the SE Setting from the razor. This will get any hair or cream that’s gotten stuck behind the setting.
All you have to do is unscrew it from the handle. Remember that unscrewing the setting from the body will cause the blade to fall out. Make sure you’re ready to change your blade when you want to clean your SE this way.
After removing the setting, follow the steps above. Rinse it out with hot water. Scrub it with dish soap with a sponge or soft brush. Dip it in rubbing alcohol and Barbicide.
Put the setting back on and load a new blade.
Don’t Leave it Lying Down
Our Razor Stand is one of the best ways to keep your razor clean and dry between each shave. After you rinse it out, shake out the water and place it in the stand.
Leaving your SE in the Stand between shaves will keep your blades from rusting, making them last longer.
The Stand will also make your SE a statement piece next to your sink.
Get Back to Shaving
Now your SE is clean and ready to keep delivering close, comfortable, safe and sanitary shaves.
