Reader Suggestion - DIY Braun Cleaning Solution
ShavingStuff reader Dale recently wrote in with a comment about the cleaning solution used by the Braun Pulsonic and several of the other Braun electric razors:
braun should make a economic quart or gallon size container of cleaning solution to refill the cartridges. they're easy to clean and reuse.
until that happens i just clean mine and refill it with 40% diluted alcohol [denatured alcohol not isopropyl] which is the ingredient on the box. haven't had any problems yet with my 8000 series in a couple years.
know how much money i have saved?
While this certainly wouldn't be endorsed by Braun, and it probably voids any warranty, it might be worth a try if you're thrifty and handy. Your inner chemist will thank you.

Don't buy cleaning solution at those ridiculous prices quoted. It's only a weak alcohol/water solution with a little perfume in it. I buy Lectric pre-shave, and dump that in the container. It's premixed, and relatively cheap.
