Make Razor Blades Last Longer with Olive Oil

As you know, I switched razors a while back to try to get them to last longer. It worked, but not as well as I would have liked. To get my blade to last even longer, I’ve started storing it in olive oil.


Everyone knows you can extend a razor’s life by keeping it outside of the shower and dry, preventing rust from forming. But every time I tried to dry mine off, I wiped off the aloe strip. This way’s much easier.

I originally read about this at Green Living TipsWise Bread lists it and a bunch of other shaving tricks. Any sort of oil will do: vegetable, mineral, baby. Even alcohol or vinegar. I just chose olive oil because that’s what we had on hand. And any oil that’s left on the blade just makes your shave smoother.
