Dull Razor Blades: Day 27

how to sharpen disposable razors

One of the risks which comes along with traveling from house to house to house is that sometimes I forget things. I have plenty of razors (TIP: I get them for free from drug stores — every time a razor company comes out with a new model razor, you can almost always get them for free.

    I’ve been able to get a month out of a disposable razor using a similar method. I just run the razor backwards over the inside of my arm a few times after shaving.

    I usually use a safety razor with replaceable blades though which is even cheaper than disposables. The same method also works with safety razors.
