The BaByliss Super Turbo Hair Dryer is virtually maintenance-free. The dryer must be kept clean for proper operating performance. When cleaning is needed unplug the cord, and clean dust and lint from air intake openings with a small brush or the brush attachment of a vacuum cleaner. The outer surface of the dryer should be wiped clean with a damp cloth only. When not in use the dryer should be disconnected and stored in a safe, dry location, out of reach of children. Do not wrap the power cord around the dryer. Allow the cord to hang or lie loose and straight at the point of entry into the dryer.
