“Could you please tell me the correct way to dispose of my collection of used double edge razor blades.”

Proper disposal of used razor blades is important, especially if you use double-edged blades or you have small children in the house.

AARON SAYS

“Mr. Fensom,
Thanks for the question! Safe disposal of used double edge razor blades has been a problem for many years. What I personally have done, and many others I have seen, is take a tin food can and make a deposit bank with it. The ideal can has had broth or evaporated milk within and with a couple of simple household tools you can create a slot large enough to slip the blades in without them coming back out easily. This also allows for the liquid inside to come out for a win-win situation.

There are also many vintage banks out of the market and in second hand stores to be had. Also, many of the razor blades that come in dispensers (Feather and Wilkinson-Sword for example) have on the back a small slot for you to place the used blades back in. Be creative, there are many solutions one can find for disposing your blades, I’d love to hear what you end up with!

Smooth Shaving!
Aaron”
