So I really wanted to find a cheaper and alternative solution to shaver cleaning fluid as they are dam expensive in the long run. Seemingly this is as good as the only one out there and while I actually have never bought these I did consider until I made some calculations (jump to summary if you like the short version).
So let's take the original 3x pack cartridges 170ml each:Braun CCR3 Clean & Renew Refill Cartridges - 3-Pack
Total of £11.79 at £3.93 per unit of 170ml with free shipping
Total of £10.61 at £3.54 per unit of 170ml (on subscription cycle) with free shipping
Then let's take the 1000ml alternative (1000/170ml = 5.88 equal refills):
Total of £21.95 (including £5 shipping) at £3.73 per until of 170ml (21.95/5.88) all inclusive
So yes they are slightly cheaper than the plain 3 pack price, but more expensive than then subscription price. Then we need to consider the subjective views of not as good smell (which does not matter in the end too much) and the more critical hassle with cleaning and refilling.
So to sumarize the numbers:
1. £3.54 per cartridge - 3-pack 170ml original (subscription)
2. £3.73 per cartridge - Alternative cleaning fluid 1000ml
3. £3.93 per cartridge - 3-pack 170ml original (one off)
While the prices might fluctuate and even if this was a 5star product, it does not really matter due to
the way too high price. Even for £0.20 more I'd prefer to not have the hassle.

Note: The 2x 1000ml pack would come in at £36.95 total, equals 11.76 units of 170ml, which is £3.14 and at least some savings to talk about for the extra hassle. So if you do want to save at least by the 2x pack.
