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))
- a shallow dish or container large enough to submerge your razor
- a toothbrush
- a microfiber or cotton towel
How to clean your razor:
In a shallow container, create a half Simple Green and half water mixture (enough to submerge your razor)
Submerge your razor in the solution. Let soak overnight.
In the morning, use a toothbrush to remove the rest of the residue, if any
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.
