How to open and clean your Cameo blade!

Did I say you could  not open your Silhouette Cameo blade? Well, I just found this amazing video by a wonderful lady from Germany that proves me wrong, wrong, wrong! Thank goodness!

YES, you can open your Cameo blade and clean it out. I followed her directions, which are extremely easy, and was totally amazed by the paper debris that dropped out of my blade housing. No wonder it wasn’t making clean cuts.

See for yourself. Here is my new BFF with instructions on how to open your Cameo blade and clean it like it’s never been cleaned before!! Enjoy!

    • I really wonder if this video was some kind of stunt to boost blade sales I am so annoyed just got it in the mail and cant order these blades locally what a drag 🙁 Gosh I’m an idiot!

  1. After following your instructions on how to clean the Cameo blade, I have more problems than I started out with. I not only was unable to open the blade housing, but now I cannot get the blade to turn either way. I have even used pliers as well as asking my husband to try and turn the blade. It refuses to move either way and is stuck on zero. If you can help me with this problem I would greatly appreciate it. In the mean time I have had to purchase a new blade and they are not cheap. Thank you for your time and consideration. Have a nice day! 🙂

  2. just wanted to let you know there is a much easier way to clean your cameo blade. i to found the german video. first time it worked perfectly, 2nd time i ruined the blade housing. it was then that my super awesome hubby showed me the little cap on the end that screws off it. i am working on pics to show this and will follow up with a link as soon as i’m finished.

    • Wow! If you have solved you blade problem I would love to know how! I had the same problem and wound up having to buy a new blade! My old blade will not turn in either direction and is stuck on zero. If you can let me know how I can fix this. Thanks you for your time and consideration. Have a nice day!:)
