You’ll find dozens of blade cleaning discussions here if you search.

Just about any household spray cleaner works well….409, LA’s Totally Awesome, Fantastic, Greased Lightning, Goo Gone, etc. Spray it on, hit it with a brass or nylon brush, rinse, wipe…done in minutes. No need to buy aftermarket sprays. I’d also advise against oven cleaner…it’s caustic, messy, can remove lettering from your blades, and doesn’t work any better than something like 409. If the build up is really bad, Freud suggests a kerosene soak b/c it’s pH neutral.

Whichever method you choose, the important thing is to do it…dirty blades perform like dull blades, and the excess heat actually causes dulling. Clean blades perform better longer.
