TMR Frugal Living Tip #63

Today's thrifty living tip is dry your razor in between shaves. Just dab the blades gently with a towel and put it in a dry place like the medicine cabinet for storage. The water will dull the blades. Yes this does work and extends the life of your blades. My husband shaves at least 2-3 times a week plus I use his razor weekly. Since we started using this tip, I will say we have at least added at least another 30 days of use from the blades.

Hi, Bonnie! Are you still selling on ebay?

This is a great tip, because the blades can get rusty pretty quickly.

I have a horrible habit of just shaking mine out, so I'll give this a try. :)

Thanks for the tip!

That's a really great idea. I had never thought of water affecting the life of my blades. I know that I sometimes keep it wet and the moisture strip gets disgusting, which isn't good either.
