Weirdly, my late husband showed me a trick that allows me to use the same disposable razor for years on end now. After shaving (I use soap to lubricate), just hold the razor's blade very close to the faucet/shower head for about 15 seconds. That's it. Keeps it clean & it continues to be sharp.
NB: Being female, I don't shave my face, just my legs & underarms, so I can't speak for men's experiences.

By Linda Someone wrote a tip about putting razor blades in alcohol to keep them sharp. I thought, what a good idea, so decided I would try it on my razor.
My razor is a Venus. I just took the head off an put it back in the tray it came in, poured the alcohol over the razor head. When i got it out the next time to use it, the alcohol had dried up and there was a gummy film in the bottom where the comfort strips had melted. Gross. So don't do it on razors with comfort strips. Bad news. It was a new blade and I had to throw it out. So beware, girls!
