Dry Off Your Razor To Make It Last

This is one of the best kept secrets by the razor companies. After using a Schick or other type of straight razer, dry it off. You should be able to get 50-60 shaves from one razor, as it is water, not whiskers that will corrode a razor.

It is the water that feeds the bacteria that makes the razor rust and become dull, even ever so slightly. Instead of just rinsing and drying, I suggest adding a few drops of liquid hand soap to the blades and letting the soap dry until the next time. They should last about 3-6 months unless you have an extra thick hair crop to shear. lol Good luck and God bless. : )

try Razor Gator's Razor Extender, it is a disposable razor cleaning tool that makes razors last up to ten weeks. it has teeth, a brush to clean out the razor gunk, and small cloth tail for drying the blade. it works.

The Save-a-Blade that they show on TV really resharpens the razors. I shave my head, and after one shave the razor is dull. But with the Save-a-Blade a razor will last more than two months. You can find it at Walgreens in the sold on TV section for $20 that's the cheapest I've seen it. The TV price is $40, but I've seen it at other stores as well in the sold on TV. I think they even have it on Walgreen's website. It paid for itself in savings in a month with the cost of disposable blades these days.
