The Braun Pulsonic - One Year Later
It was just about one year ago that we were shaving with the new Braun Pulsonic for the first time, and I thought I'd mention something important that I've learned. You can't skimp.
Let me explain - the Pulsonic is a self-cleaning electric razor. It's got a little hygienic-o-meter which let's you know when it's time for a cleaning. And it's got these nifty little cartridges that you plug into the base which contain the cleaning solution. Click a button, whir-whir-whir, your razor is clean. I wish I could do the same for the rest of my bathroom.
Here's the thing. I'm cheap. I like to squeeze an extra shave out of a razor. And I like to get an extra cleaning out of the Pulsonic. There's just one thing standing between me and my frugality. Physics. Or chemistry. It's one of those two sciences that deals with molecules. And evaporation. See the cleaning cartridges are filled with a lot of alcohol, and that stuff tends to evaporate pretty quickly. So if you think you can hold out and get another shave with your hygienic-o-meter flashing danger, remember that you're also fighting the cruel mistress that is evaporation. My advice - clean early, clean often.
This is not a criticism of the Pulsonic or its cleaning system. It's more a criticism of my stinginess. I love the Pulsonic. It's my favorite electric razor, and I've recommended it more than any other. Just use the cleaning solution cartridges, or they're going to disappear. (Unless you're a chemist, in which case see this DIY cleaning solution alternative.)
