Homemade Braun Cleaning SolutionRefilling this plastic Braun Cleaning Cartridge costs me about $1.88 each time, instead of paying around $5 each for the original. So my refill costs also drop from $60 to around $23 per year.

Fortunately, this not only works for the Braun Series 7 cleaning cartridges but for each Braun Series from Series 3 through to the current Braun Series 9.

Braun shavers are one of the most highly rated brands. They make some of the most advanced shavers available, according to trusted reviewers online.

But whichever Braun Shaver you have, you can save money on your Braun Razor Cleaner.

To be fair, buying the original Braun clean and renew refill packs won’t cost you much.One $4-$5 per cartridge should last for a month if used daily.
