For years I have been using disposable razors past the two days-two week or so recommended usage time period the razor companies suggest. I never really thought about trying to extend the life of my razor, but on theDr. Oz show in the fall (I can’t find it on his website now, but 9/11 or 10/11), he had a guest on who was talking about frugal tips, and this one caught my attention.
To help extend the life of your disposable razor, dry it off completely after each use and keep it in a dry spot for storage. You should be able to use it for months after drying it faithfully as long as there are no signs of rust. Then toss it. No, I haven’t found any other uses for old razors. Do you have one?
I used to consistently store my razor right in the wet shower area, but now I store it on a dry shelf to keep it dry. I think I’ve only used two or three different razors since then.
