anyone any advice on getting longer life out of one blade? Drying after use, good cleaning or something? Someone said its cause of the cream that it deteriates so fast?
Raising Hand! Raising Hand!
Here's the real deal. It doesn't matter WHAT you use. Lotions, blades etc.
The trick is to make sure you completly rinse the blade with hot or cold water, and COMPLETLY dry the blade for storage. Its the moisture that deteriorates the blades. Yeah, hacking your face hurts them too.
I heard this tip FROM a Gillette manufacturing guy. Not a sales man. I was in on a project where they were building 32 and 64 cavity tools.
Gillette makes baaaad ass tools.
Rince well and Dryem off. You'll notice immediate extended life.
Iv been using the good ol Gillette Sensor two blade with lubrication strip for many a year. After use, I take an old tooth brush, give it a couple swipes across the blades than blow it out. Works for me.

It's ridiculous how expensive razor blades are. So what is the story for shaving cream? What should I use? Can someone be more specific than, "you should use what they don't recommend?"
