Smart tips on storing razor blades and increasing the amount of shaves using clean razor blades. 

A concern to all people who use a razor is the life of the blade. If the user would store the razor, between uses, in a plastic jar with a lid containing a 1/2 inch of isopropyl alcohol, you could get twice the amount of comfortable shaves in per blade by increasing the amount of shaves using clean razor blades. This would prevent most discomfort and some infections. The alcohol displaces H20 and disinfects.
