    Question Quick Question about stropping

    Can I strop the night before shaving?

    My hunch is yes, but I just want to check.

    Yes. Conventional wisdom is that it's better to strop right before shaving. You should be able to overlap stropping and something else (e.g. waiting for the basin to fill) so it shouldn't add any more time.

    From what I've read, stropping the night before is fine for realigning the edge, but, it is better to strop before shaving because it removes micro-oxidation that can form since the last stropping.
