5 Electric Razor Maintenance Tips

Get a Warranty

I know. I know. I often get in the bad habit of throwing out warranties when I buy electronics. Take a little extra time to fill out the warranty. It might cost you a few bucks, but if your razor breaks down, you can send the company your old razor, and they'll either fix it or replace it. Even if they can't fix it, they can cannibalize the parts from the bum razor. That's a good way to cut down on waste.
