I've been experimenting with different razors, including a couple of safetey razors (a Merkur 34C and an EJ de86bl) for awhile now in a quest to end getting irritation on my neck. Nothing has really worked all that well so far except for a couple of cartridge razors (a Gillette Mach 3 and a Fusion Proglide) when the blades are sharp. Shaving with olive oil has also seemed to help a bit. I've also read that keeping a razor submerged in olive oil when not in use can extend the life of the razor. I've been trying this with a Mach 3 cartridge, and the lube strip is dissolving. So I have two questions. Does keeping the razor in olive oil really work to make the cartridge last longer? And will the dissolving lube strip affect the performance of the razor? Thanks!
