How To Clean Your Safety Razor
A clean safety razor is not only more hygienic, but it also ensures a smoother shave and prolongs the life of your razor
At Executive Shaving we are frequently asked “How often do I need to clean my razor?” Truth be told, it depends on how much hair you have and how often you shave. If your stubble is thick and dark, you're going to want to clean your safety razor more often than if it's light and blonde. For example, Some like a close shave when going on a date so they need to clean their’s after each use.
Unscrew the handle.
Make sure that you do not over-tighten the screw. If you do, it could damage the blade and make it more difficult to properly secure it in place when you're ready to use your razor.
Once the handle is removed from your safety razor, wash it with soap and water. If there's any rust or buildup around where the blade attaches to the handle, use a toothbrush or cotton swab to scrub off any gunk.
Declog the razor head.
Once you've cleaned the head, you can now use it to remove any stuck hairs in your razor. If a hair is embedded in the head of the razor, it can take multiple passes to remove it. To avoid this problem and save time, use a toothbrush or cotton swab to clean out any debris and hair from inside of shaving heads before every shave.
Rinse away the gunk.
Now that you've removed the gunk, it's time to rinse away the excess shaving cream and water. Rinse your razor under a stream of warm water until all of the soap is gone.
Make sure to dry each piece thoroughly before storing it in a cool, dry place.
When you're done cleaning, make sure to dry each piece thoroughly before storing it in a cool, dry place.
Don't store your razor in a damp, wet place or else you might end up with mold or mildew growing on it!
