Ever tried getting peanut butter out of a shag carpet?

What did you do? Wait, I just read your other comment. Somehow I don't think you're talking about peanut butter lol.

a reply to: AugustusMasonicus



Peanut butter will actually help remove gum you may have gotten stuck in your carpet.

They sell some kind of chemical that freezes it and allows you to remove it easier.

I tried them years ago. The main thing I didn’t like was walking around all morning with toilet paper on my face . Text

At least it wasn't used toilet paper.

I didn't know any of that. I'll have to try it. Thanks.

I use my air compressor to blow the whisker clogs out of my cheap walgreen multiblades and they last forever.

I usually put mine inside the Great Pyramid and use the harmonic power of the universe to keep mine forever sharp.

First pass, yes. Razor bumps will happen if you make your first pass against the grain.

Sheesh... Do guys not learn this anymore???

I omitted that part about the pyramids.

I made my pyramid out of wire clothes hangers and cardboard boxes that diet coke comes in.

Then either your face is not prepped enough to get the hair to stand up, or you are pressing too hard with the razor.

So much THIS!

I literally only do anything when the hair gets long enough to annoy me (head or face). And then, I use the tool that gets me the best results with the absolute least amount of effort, clippers. My Oster 76 takes care of pretty much everything in a very short amount of time.

I just can't be bothered to care otherwise. I mean, I bought the Oster solely because it shaves (!) "grooming time" by like 90%..

It is what I use. Now when you get the whole setup going (badger hair brush, shaving soap in a cup and use an enamel bowl the hold the water) then you will feel better about yourself...or will be like me.

Nice. Do you get the air compressor set up just for shaving?

Good choice, I either use one of these or a straight razor, and saved a TON of money doing so......

I also use shave oil instead of shave cream.....

Lol I know what you mean. My age ensures I have to do my nostrils & ears every 2nd day.

Where was the growth when I needed it in my 30's when I started balding. Ya can't win!

I've tried that. I must be dong it wrong because it only does a so so job.



Make sure you never touch or wipe the blade, keep it upright or away from surfaces. I also use a bar of plain hand soap but make sure the water is super hot when lathering.

I paid about $9 Au about 2 years ago for this triple blade knock off from China ( with 3 sets of blades total about $15 ) , I think it was through Zazzle



The way my hands are I'd probably end up slitting my throat with a straight razor.


Take the challenge - as you get better the time taken is shortened - but keep a styptic stick handy LOL

I've been using a safety razor and badger brush w/ soap for many years now. I consider it a luxury, the scent of the soap lofting as you bring it to foam applying to face. I like sandalwood or something refreshing. I also use a modern cartridge a couple of times a week.

I like that the safety razor makes me slow down when shaving. You just can't rush it.

Wait, you actually shave your own face? I have my personal assistant do that while the other one takes care of the manscaping.
