Wherever you live, razors are left in an environment of heat, humidity, wet, and steamy air. If you look closely at your razor, it is most likely either molded or rusty.

If you prefer using razor blades for a nice close shave, store them in coconut oil.

Find a plastic container just large enough to accommodate the width of the razor. Add coconut oil and warm in the microwave just a few seconds until the oil liquefies. Add razor. Place on a shelf in shower or bath enclosure, away from water flow, on a shelf beneath the showerhead, ideally. The heat of the shower will keep the oil in liquid form.


When using, periodically dip the razor into the oil. The oil creates a nice barrier, helps protect your skin from nicks, as well as providing a smoother shave. Other oils are effective but quickly turn rancid.

Blades last at least five times longer than usual!
