Reusing old Razors

If you use disposable razors, you know that in the end you throw them away and end up in the landfill… Know that “once the lubricating strip starts to wear away and the blade dulls it is time to get a new one”. I researched a little bit and found this interesting Disposable vs. Reusable Razors article from HowStuffWorks to help you compare and see why “it appears that buying a reusable razor is cheaper in the long run. Even if you have to replace the razor a couple of times a year, you still come out ahead in the long run and you help save the environment a bit while you’re at it.”
