Check the cord of your shaver regularly for any signs of damage

Answered by Dave, Electrical Safety Expert

Check the cord of your shaver regularly for any signs of damage. If you spot any, replace it.

If the electric shaver has been dropped or submerged in water, do not use it.

Always unplug your electric shaver from the mains when not in use.

Do not rinse or submerge in water, and ensure that the plug and cord do not get wet.

Switch your electric shaver off when not in use – don’t leave it operating unattended.
