a question on cleaning


I just received a Braun Silk-Epil Eversoft. On the instructions it says to clean the tweezers with alcohol as well as brushing. How do I do that? Just use a Q-Tip dipped in rubbing alcohol or the alcohol wipes like you use for cleaning pierced ears? This is probably a really dumb question but I just want to know the right way to do it! Would the alcohol cause the metal to rust?


These devices usually come with a tiny brush you can use to clean out debris.

Don’t use a Q-tip, because the cotton can catch and get stuck. Better to uyse an old toothbrush if it didn’t come with a brush.


Yes, it has a brush, I’ve been cleaning epilators that way. What I am wanting to know is how to clean it with alcohol (the instructions on my new one say to clean with alcohol). I don’t know how you would apply alcohol with the brush!


Hi Sharifa,

I dip the brush in the alcohol and then use it to clean the epilator.
