Hair Clipper Oil

Hi Moms,
I just ran out of the little tub of clipper oil that came with our set (well... I didn't put the cap on tight and it leaked everywhere is more accurate.) I was going to buy another tube, but I thought I would see if there was a cheaper route. Does anyone know if I can just use mineral oil, or something else that I can grab at a grocery store. I know it is only a couple of bucks, but I would rather save them than spend them.
Thanks!

Re: Hair Clipper Oil

My husband just told me he uses whatever oil he can find. So sometimes that has been wd 40, sometimes that has been vegetable oil. I'd try whatever you have in the house first and see if it works for you.

I thuink mineral oil would work. You could also pick up sewing machine oil which is good for clippers as well, they should have that in any craft store, and maybe even walmart (thats where I got mine).

Re: Hair Clipper Oil

I am a dog groomer and use clippers all the time. Mineral oil would work just fine.
