Re: Re: Razors


    I used to always toss away the plastic safety covers that are on razors, but I eventually realized they really do prolong the life of the razor, probably by keeping moisture and/or bacteria off the blades between shaves.

    Environmental note:  I know that Gilette multi-packs are a lot cheaper than Venus or Soleil razors with replaceable blades, but I really believe in being able to buy blade replacements.  Also, the brand Preserve, sold at Whole Foods, mades recylable razors — you just snap off the blade and recycle the handle.  And, of course, you can buy blade replacements — in fact they just came out with a triple blade razor.
