A hot shower or bath is recommended—this will help soften the hair and prepare your skin. Be sure to dry off with a fresh towel as a re-used towel my contain bacteria. You can remove hair lodged between the blades by running the blade under a heavy stream of water or gently tapping the razor on the base of the sink. Once you've cleaned the razor, pour a little rubbing alcohol over the top of the blades to kill any bacteria.
