Cleaning Your Safety Razor
To keep your razor in tip-top shape, you should rinse it after every shave to clear away hair and shaving cream residue. You should also wash the razor regularly with warm water and soap using a soft brush, and store it upright in a stand if you have one to help dry it quicker.
Changing the Double Edge Razor Blade
You want to keep your safety razor blade sharp so it can cut through hair easily.
You should change your blades after 4-7 shaves. This is because the blades will begin to wear down over time and become less effective at cutting through tough hairs without tugging or pulling at them. Changing your blades every 4-7 shaves will ensure that they are always sharp enough to give a close shave without irritating your skin!
It also depends on the type of hair that you have—thick or thin, curly or straight—and how dense it is—how many strands are packed together. When you start to feel it drag, it's time to replace your blade.
How to recycle
Recycling is easy.
We use only premium stainless steel, double edge razor blades that are fully recyclable at the end of their life cycle.
The reusable razor is made from durable brass which means it will last years, not months. Forever if looked after!
So when it comes time to disposeing of your DE razor blades, you can pop them into one of our Blade Recycling Bins and recycle with your home recycling.
The blades are made from stainless steel and fully recyclable, which means they can be melted down and reused again.

I've sensitive skin, can I still use a safety razor?
If you have sensitive skin, then you're probably already familiar with the frustration of trying to find a razor that doesn't irritate it.
Imagine how much more relaxing your morning routine would be if you could shave without worrying about whether or not the razor was going to cause any irritation.
It's possible! Safety razors are the perfect choice for people with sensitive skin because they feature only one blade instead of multiple blades and cartridges like other razors. This means fewer passes over your skin and less friction, which can lead to irritation or ingrown hairs. While multi-blade razors might seem like a good idea at first, they often cut beneath the surface of your skin, which can also lead to irritation and ingrown hairs.
Safety razors are also much more affordable than multi-blade razors, so you'll be able to keep your blades sharper for longer without breaking the bank on new ones every time they dull out!
Safety razors require no pressure, so there is no need for heavy-handedness when shaving; this also reduces irritation and redness on sensitive areas like knees or ankles where typically more pressure is needed due to the curvature of your leg or ankle bone structure.
It's easy to see why these guys are great for people with sensitive skin!
Can I use a safety razor on my bikini line?
Many women think that safety razors are only for shaving your legs, and that they can't be used to shave any other areas. But this is far from the case!
You can use a safety razor anywhere!

How do I use a safety razor to shave under arms?
It's possible for anyone, regardless of age or gender, to shave their underarms with a safety razor. The key is understanding how to prepare the skin, and then shaving in the direction that hair grows.
Shaving under your arms can be a challenge. It's hard to get at the hair, and it can be tough to avoid irritation and ingrown hairs. Luckily, there are ways to do it right!
To prep your skin, have a hot shower or bath. You'll want to soften the hair so it's ready for shaving.
You start by making sure your skin is as taught as possible by stretching it upwards and bending your elbow to stretch it out. Then, pull the skin taught with your other hand to create a smooth, flat surface to shave.
Be gentle and take your time, because you want to avoid irritation and ingrown hairs!

Shaving your legs with a safety razor is a great way to get silky smooth skin.
You'll want to shave in the direction that your hair grows. This will help prevent irritation, cuts and ingrown hairs because the blade isn't dragging against the grain.
When shaving with a safety razor, don't press down on your skin or drag too hard—that's how you get razor burn, nicks and cuts! With a safety razor, all you need is the weight of the handle to apply pressure on your skin as you glide it across.
Short straight strokes work well for tricky areas like ankles and knees, where there's more curvature than on other parts of the leg. Remember: work from out toward in!

The safety razor is made of metal, will it rust?
No. Your DE razor is made from brass and powder coated to give it it's colour whilst also protecting the razor from rust.
However, the steel double edged razor blades will rust if exposed to water for sustained periods of time. This is the same as you would experience with disposable razors. The trick is to keep your razor some place dry and if you can, dry off the blades after use. This will extend their life.
Leaving your safety razor upright in a stand will help the blade to dry naturally.
