The restorative accessory has a few layers of mesh with perforations that allow the beard hairs to slip through for cutting. Because the perforations (holes) in each mesh layer are moved (by the shaver) in opposing directions in relation to each other, the hairs of a beard are then cleanly chopped. That is, this process works very well when those meshes are clean, and thus those 'holes' have sharp edges to them. However, that all breaks down after the meshes have become dirty and/or oxidized, which just happens with usage over time. Once that's understood, it may be obvious, that keeping those meshes clean is critically important to preserving the cutting utility of your Braun shaver. Cleaning the meshes more often will get you more life out of each mesh (ex: 32S), but oxidization and the wear from cutting will eventually dull the sharpness of those holes (perforations), and then only a new mesh will restore your shaver to it's pristine operational characteristic. I would have given this product 5/5 for all, if Braun would bring down the price of the associated cleaning fluid so that it pays a bit more for consumer's that take efforts for frequently cleaning their mesh (32S). But because the cleaning fluid is priced a bit too high, I'm reducing my rating to 4/5 to hopefully make Braun and their distributors rethink the price of the Braun cleaning fluid (in cartridges). Braun: Here me now...reduce the suggested retail price on the cleaning fluid cartridges by 30%, and you get 5/5 here.
