This little razor rust-busting hack is one I've used in our own home for quite some time.
After gliding through my shin skin with a worn-out razor week after week, something had to be done!
The simple fact is that razor blades are made out of metal, which is prone to rust when water's left on it. Not exactly conducive to the whole shower situation. Here's the solution.
- Get a Command Wire Hook or – if your razor doesn't have a handy hole in it for hanging – a Command Spring Clip.
- After shaving, swipe your blade against a towel to dry the blades completely. Hang upside down so that moisture from the rest of the razor doesn't drip onto the blade.
- If your blades still seem to be rusting quickly, it probably means your bathroom has a high level of humidity that is settling into the blades between shaves. Swipe the blades with a small amount of baby oil or Vaseline after drying. This will help naturally repel water.
Following these steps, I've extended the life of my razor blades by three to four times!
