[ Stretch the usage of your razor blades ]

Did you know you can stretch the usage of your razor blades five, maybe ten times longer?  I have read where the wearing dull of your razor blades is not so much from usage but it is mostly from oxidation, in other words it becomes coated with some kind of substance caused by the oxygen in the air.  There is a rather simple solution to it. 

 

When you finish shaving do this:

 

  • Rinse the razor with the blade still in it, thoroughly. 

 

  • Then sling off the excess water. 

 

  • Then blow vigorously into the blade(s) to remove remaining water.  It is important that you do not touch it with your hands or any other substance except your face. 

 

  • After removing the water as described do not let it touch your face or anything else again. 

 

  • The next step is to submerge the blade, stilled attached to the handle,  into a container of alcohol and let it remain there until the next time you shave.  In other words submerge the whole thing in the alcohol. 

 

My beard is not as heavy as some but this has really worked well for me.   I only shave two times a week since I no longer have to make public appearances every day such as going to work.  I am retired.  One of Gillette's four-blade razor blades lasted me nearly a year before I replaced it with another one.  I did not keep track of the time but my best estimate is around 8 to 10 months.  At my rate of shaving that is about 25 or 30 shaves from one blade and I may get 50 or more this time around.  Maybe you will not get that many but I think you will get at least 5 to 10 times the number of shaves that you are currently getting.
