Can I rinse my Philips depilation products with water?
Published on 02 May 2023
You can rinse your Philips Epilator, Trimmer or Shaver only if it is fully waterproof. You can check that by looking at the signs and symbols printed on your device's box or the back of the handle.
Crossed-out tap symbol
If you see a crossed-out tap symbol on the box, body or inside the battery cover of your Philips female hair removal devices, it means that the product is not washable. These products are only suitable for dry use and should be cleaned without water. Use a brush to brush off the hairs that have accumulated inside your product.
A tap symbol printed on your Philips device indicates that it is washable and its removable parts (cutters and combs) can be cleaned with water. Keep in mind, this does not mean that you can use it to clip or trim your hair in the shower or bath. Remove the head from the handle before rinsing it under the tap. Make sure the parts are completely air dried before putting the device back together.
Bath or shower symbol
If you see a shower or bath symbol printed on your Philips hair removal product, it means that your device is waterproof. It can be safely cleaned with water and used while taking a shower or a bath. For safety reasons, these waterproof devices can only be used cordless and will not turn on if they are connected to the power supply.
Note: Please keep in mind that the symbols on your Philips products vary per model type. If you are still unsure whether it is safe to clean your device with water, then please contact us for further support.
