Three OneBlade razors  placed on a sur

Overtime, shaving cream residue will build up on your razor. To remove the residue and to make your razor look brand new, we’ve outlined a simple cleaning process.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

  • your razor
  • Simple Green cleaning solution (or any solution that is NOT designed to remove tarnish or rust, and contains hydrochloric, hydrofluoric, and/or phosphoric acid or caustic agents (e.g. sodium hydroxide, sulfuric acid))
  • water
  • a shallow dish or container large enough to submerge your razor
  • a toothbrush
  • a microfiber or cotton towel

HOW TO CLEAN YOUR RAZOR:

MIX

Simple Green and Water Mixture

In a shallow container, create a half Simple Green and half water mixture (enough to submerge your razor)

SOAK

Submerge your razor in the solution. Let soak overnight.

Toothbrush Scrub

In the morning, use a toothbrush to remove the rest of the residue, if any

RINSE

Rinse Your Razor

Rinse your razor in warm water for a minute or more.

Dry your razor with either a microfiber cloth or cotton towel. Avoid using any paper products (e.g. paper towels, tissues, toilet paper) to dry your razor; it might scratch the surface.

IS THE RESIDUE ON YOUR RAZOR STILL NOT BUDGING?

Try the following:

  • Use filtered or bottled water. The harder your water, the more difficult it will be to clean your razor.
  • Soak the razor for 12 hours. Some soap residues need to soak a little longer than others.
  • Use a firmer bristled toothbrush.
