I have a small canning jar with a couple of inches of 93% alcohol in it. I used to soak my razors in it for a few minutes after use while cleaning up my brush, soap etc. One of razors is a Parker with a black painted handle, and after a couple minute soak the paint started to flake off the handle. That was the last time I soaked. Now I just give them a couple of seconds swirl in the jar and remove it. Lesson learned, I'm just glad it was a Parker and not the paint from a vintage Gillette adjustment ring. YMMV-maybe the Parker paint used is just inferior but I'm not taking any chances.
Hey man, if we're gonna wear uniforms, you know let's have everybody wear something different.
