I've seen it mentioned around here in the past, that some guys will soak their safety razors in rubbing alcohol. Can't remember if it's w/blade and between shave for sanitizing or blade care, or for cleaning the razor between blade changes.
I've started doing this between blade changes for cleaning up the razor and I think it works great. For example I'll put my r89 parts in my little shave bowl overnight in just enough rubbing alcohol to cover them. To my limited eyesight it looks like they come out really clean and shiny!
Is this the typical practice/reason others do this? Am I doing it right and is there a negative to doing this?
Thoughts please Gents?
