How to use Remington F5-5800
- The shaver is cordless and must be charged before use.
- Once it is charged, press the ON/OFF button to turn it on.
- Make sure that your skin is completely clean and dry, and not oily.
- Hold the razor in shaving position, ensuring that it is in the direction of hair growth. Apply little pressure on your facial skin and then begin to shave.
- Move the shaver back and forth, up and down slowly. Also make side motions, but do not move in circles or speedily. When you move slowly, you allow the shaver’s pivot head to adjust to the facial contours, especially at the neck and jaw line, so you can achieve a smooth and close shave.
- Use your free hand to stretch your facial skin so that the razor can catch and cut the hairs quickly, but avoid applying excess pressure when you are shaving.
- For the best results with this shaver, use it twice a day: at night and daytime. However, a single daily shave will still give you a fairly smooth and close shave.
- Once you finish shaving, make sure to clean the shaver. This will keep the razors under the foil performing optimally.
How to Clean Remington F5-5800
- Make sure that the shaver is turned off before you start washing.
- Remove the protective head guard and then wash the shaving unit by passing it under hot running water.
- Shake off excess water and then allow the shaver to air dry.
- Replace the protective head guard
- If you need more thorough cleaning, you should disassemble the whole shaver and clean the components individually. For instance, rinse the stainless steel blades individually and allow them to air dry.
- Store the shaver safely.
