The blade of my Philips OneBlade is turning green too quickly
Your Philips OneBlade is equipped with a blade-wear indicator. This means that with use you will see a green patch develop on your blade. Once this patch is completely green, it is a signal for you to get a new blade. However, please keep in mind that this is only an indication and you should replace the blade when you are not satisfied with its performance anymore.
We recommend replacing the blade of your OneBlade every 4 months, based on two uses per week. To make sure you get the best out of your OneBlade, follow our advice below.
Clean the blade regularly
One of the reasons for the blade to turn green quicker than expected is improper cleaning. Cleaning tools such as brushes, towels etc or chemical liquids can cause early visual wear. Please follow the cleaning instructions for OneBlade below:
After every use blow off any hair accumulated on the blade.
Turn your OneBlade on and rinse the blade and comb(s) with lukewarm water.
If the attachments need to be cleaned more thoroughly turn the OneBlade off, take off its attachments and wash them under a tap.
Do not tap your blade on a hard surface like the sink to clean or dry it. This can damage the device.
Use your OneBlade only on recommended body parts
The Philips OneBlade is designed to be used on the face to trim and edge up your beard. With the body attachment, you can also use it on your body. However, if you use your OneBlade no other non-recommended areas, like your head, it may cause the blade to wear out and turn green prematurely.
Always make sure your skin is clean before using OneBlade on it.
High hair volume and density
The lifetime of the blade of your Philips OneBlade also depends on the volume and density of your hair. For hard or long hair, the blade can wear out quicker than for soft and/or short hair. If you are still not satisfied with the performance of your OneBlade or you feel you need to replace it much earlier than 4 months, then feel free to contact us for further support.
