Hello a warning to all do not wash your vinatage razors with vinegar.
I made the mistake of having just pure vinegar in a pan and heating it for 10 minutes with 3 razors.
I forgot I should have added some water to dilute the vinegar a but would I have done that I would have been ok ,and never boil the vinegar +water longer then 3-4 minutes would be my advice.
I did a 10 minute only vinegar boil thing and the vinegar eats its way thru the chrome finish. leaving behind rust spots. you think its rust but its actually the paint that is now discolored.
I see someone did it to the Fatboy aswell I received because I thought those little rust spots ill get them off but its discolorisation. due to vinegar.
The lady gillette is ok the only thing that got damaged there was on the plate that closes one side of the plate looks a bit roughed up not as shiny as was before. my Thin Gillette same thing on one side of the plate that closes and inside the handle on the bottom major discolorisation .
The superspeed under the hood total discolorisation its all now brassy colour like gold. like and the handle also brassy as if its now 200 years old look.
I think it could also be that I took out the razors out of the vinegar yesterday put them down on a plate and forgot to wash them off and the vinegar ate thru the metal the whole night..
let this be a warning for all.. suddenly my FB is now my prettiest razor in the collection... I'll need to hunt for a new thin and Superspeed all over if I want them like the original colour.
