Ask Aaron Q/A: Caring for your razor

ask aaron image

Michael Darke, from the UK, asks:

“Is there a particular way to store or care for your razor(s) between use? I’m currently alternating between 2 and generally just swill them out and leave them in a mug by the window after each shave. Is this the right or wrong thing to do; is there something special I should be doing?”


“Mr Darke,
You raise a good question, and one I think that has a easy solution. DE razors are quite easy in maintenance and need very little care. Giving them a good rinsing and patting them dry is great routine for day to day use. I also recommend once a month or so giving your razors a bath in a 9:1 solution of water and vinegar. The vinegar loosens and dissolves hard water stains and lather deposits. Let the razors soak for at least 10 minutes then rinse off in water. That’s it!

Happy Shaving!
