Used Old Safety Razors – What To Do?
After using many different back shavers with different uses of some type of razors, I come to a point of what to do with used safety razor blades, as I do not want to just throw them into the trash. That wouldn’t be safe.
I never really gave much thought about it til the time came, how to safely dispose of safety razor blades?
Some municipalities do not want small metal objects thrown in with the garbage, as this clogs there sorting process.
This can be a serious health question as it could still very easily injury someone by either reaching into the trash bin or cut through the plastic bag when transporting the bag to the larger waste bin.
So, what is a good solution?
Solutions – Ways To Dispose Of Used Razors
What to do? What to do? Thankfully there are simple solutions to this potentially dangerous problem.
They are just like they sound, a container to store used razor blades safely. Many different companies offer these for sale. They can hold roughly around 100 razor blades before they need to be replaced.
These are the containers you see in hospitals and clinics. They can hold a lot more than the blade banks can. They come in at varying sizes like quart and gallon.
These are bigger and take up more room as well can be unsightly. They can always be put under the sink or in a shelf.

Back Shavers That Use Double Sided Safety Razors
The two best back shavers that use safety razors and are in my top 5 back shavers are made by the same company.
Bro Shaver. The Bro Shaver (original) and the Bro Shaver 2.2 Saucy. Both of these back shavers are performers. Both are economical to use as safety razors are pretty affordable, especially compared to other back shavers cartridges, which are usually quite expensive and very overpriced.
