How To Oil Beard Trimmer and Hair Clippers

How To Oil Beard Trimmer and Hair Clippers

Well, well, well, look who’s stepping up their beard game! Welcome to the big leagues, where maintaining your beard trimmer and hair clippers is just as important as caring for your glorious facial fuzz

Oiling your grooming tools isn't just about making them shiny; it's about making sure they perform at their peak, giving you a crisp, clean cut every time. Trust us: Your beard will thank you for the effort. 

Stick with The Beard Club, and we'll guide you through the ins and outs of oiling your trimmer so you can focus on the more important stuff — like deciding which flannel shirt pairs best with your newly trimmed beard.

Why Is Oiling Your Beard Trimmer and Hair Clippers Important?

Do you want to know the key to a long-lasting relationship with your trimmer? It’s as simple as timely maintenance. 

Think of your trimmer as a prized race car. Just like that sweet ride needs regular oil changes to keep purring like a kitten, your beard trimmer and hair clippers need regular oiling to stay in top shape

Regular maintenance ensures that your tools are running smoothly so that you can keep your beard looking like a million bucks.

What Are the Signs That Your Beard Trimmer Needs Oiling?

Keeping an eye out for signs that your trimmer needs oiling is crucial to prolong its lifespan. It's just like keeping tabs on your favorite team's stats; you've got to know what's going on if you want to stay on top of your game.

Here are a few telltale signs that your beard trimmer could seriously benefit from a little bit of oil:

  • Poor Performance: If your trimmer is pulling at your beard instead of slicing through it like warm butter, it's a clear sign that it needs some TLC. A well-oiled trimmer should effortlessly glide across your face and make you feel like the bearded star that you are.
  • Overheating: If your trimmer feels hotter than a summer barbecue on a cloudless day, it's time to oil it up. Overheating is a sign your trimmer is working too hard and starting to feel like you do after a long day on the job. 
  • Excessive Noise: A noisy trimmer that sounds like you're preparing for a rocket launch in your bathroom isn’t cool. If your trimmer is making more noise than usual and has you reaching for earplugs, it’s crying out for some oil and a little love.
  • Visible Rust: Rust is like the arch-nemesis of your trimmer; be sure to keep it at bay with regular oiling and support your trimmer in this everlasting battle.
  • Increased Vibration: If your trimmer is shaking more than a timid leaf in a hurricane, it's time to bring out the oil. Excessive vibration can make trimming your beard feel like a roller coaster ride–exciting, but not in a good way. 

How Often Should You Oil Your Beard Trimmer and Hair Clippers?

Just like your morning exercise routine, regular oiling of your trimmer is a habit worth adopting. It's the secret sauce to a smooth and efficient trim that can make your beard grooming routine almost as enjoyable as a cold beer after a long day.

The exact timeframe for how often to oil a beard trimmer will largely depend on how frequently you use it: 

  • Daily Users: For the hygiene heroes that use your trimmer daily, a quick oiling session after each use will keep your tool in top form. It doesn’t have to be anything too intensive, just a little TLC after a hard day’s work to ensure a clean and even cut the following morning.
  • Weekly Users: If you’re a weekend warrior who prefers trimming once a week, then think of oiling your trimmer as another Sunday chore. It’s just like meal prep. You can get everything ready over the weekend so that you don’t have to worry about anything during the week. 
  • Bi-Weekly to Monthly Users: For anyone who likes to let their beard grow awhile before trimming it, then a smart rule of thumb is to oil it after every two to three uses. It’s just like taking your car in for a tune-up; it doesn’t have to be a daily task, but regular maintenance is key. 

How Do You Properly Oil Your Beard Trimmer and Hair Clippers?

Alright, champ, it's time to roll up your sleeves and dive into the nitty-gritty of how to oil hair clippers and beard trimmers. We're here to guide you through this process smoother than a freshly oiled trimmer gliding through your beard. It's as easy as a Sunday morning, and we promise it'll be over before your coffee gets cold:

1. Clean Your Grooming Tool

The first step to a well-oiled trimmer is a clean trimmer. It's like washing your car before a road trip; it just makes the journey that much better. Grab a small brush and gently remove any hair or debris to clean the beard trimmer blades. It's like spring cleaning for your trimmer.

2. Prepare the Oil

Next, it's time to bring out the big guns: your trimmer oil. Trimmer oil is usually petroleum-based mineral oil and functions like your trimmer's secret weapon that’s ready to bring out the best in your grooming tool. So, shake that bottle of yours and get ready to pour.

3. Apply the Oil to the Blades

Now, turn your trimmer so that the blades are facing down, and gently apply a few drops of oil to the blades of your trimmer. Think of it like drizzling syrup on your pancakes; you want to make sure every bit is covered, but there’s no need to get carried away. 

4. Turn On Your Grooming Tool

Fire up your trimmer and let it run for a few seconds. This helps distribute the oil evenly across the blades, ensuring a smooth and efficient application. You should be able to see the oil spreading across the blades of your trimmer. 

5. Wipe Away Excess Oil

After your trimmer has had its moment in the spotlight and every moving part has been oiled, grab a clean cloth and gently wipe away any excess oil. Letting the excess oil drip down won’t necessarily hurt your trimmer, but it’s like wiping down your gym equipment after a workout; it's just good manners.

6. Test Your Grooming Tool

Finally, give your trimmer a quick test run. It should be running smoother and quieter, just like a well-oiled machine — literally! Enjoy the satisfaction of ticking off that last item on your to-do list.
