This trick is incredibly simple and just as incredibly effective. With the below method, I have now gone about eight months using the exact same cartridge and the blades on the cartridge are as sharp as when I first popped the cartridge on. I have no idea how long this will keep up, but now a package of 12 cartridges is apparently going to last me at least 12 years or more. Before or after you shave I prefer before so that the blades are dry , place your jeans on a hard flat surface; then run the razor up the pant legs about 10-15 times quickly; then repeat running it down the pant legs 10-15 times quickly. No need to press that hard, but a little pressure is necessary. In both instances, you want to point the top of the razor in the direction you are rubbing the shaver on the pants. The threads on the jeans then will very effectively both fix any tiny bends in the blades that inevitably happen and will also sharpen the blades on your shaver cartidge. Pro-tip: rather than always having to grab a pair of jeans to do this with, I just cut the pant leg off some old jeans I was throwing away and put it in the same drawer as my shaver. The same pant leg has so far sharpened the blades on my shaver cartidge quite well for going on eight months now. Providing you start shaving from the age of, shall we say, 15?

I discovered this by accident and have found it to be a real money saver. I use a Gillette Mach3 that I have owned for several years now and have only needed to buy new blades every year or so. I use the blades for at least 4-6 months each. The only reason I change the blade is because I feel I should get the sharpest blade I can on my razor. I do notice a small improvement whenever I do change the blade, but I am convinced that blades will last much, much linger than the commercials would have you believe. Try it for yourself.

This makes the edge dull perhaps because the hot water softens the metal. When rinsing with only cold water the blade goes in the other direction by contraction first and then expansion back to its normal size as the temperature goes from cold back to normal temperature again. This does not dull the edge. With blades these days it is even worse. Hot or even warm water will soften the polymer coating on the blade. Then when the blade expands because of the warm or hot water the polymer stretches. When it contracts again not only is the edge dull but the polymer is all wrinkled up which effectively makes the blade seem even more dull. This happens pretty much instantly and is great for companies who manufacture razor blades because the consumer has to replace the blade sooner. To test this, lather and shave only half your face with a new razor be sure to always rinse it in very cold water. When finished this side of your face, rinse the razor several times while changing the temperature of the water from hot to cold. Now lather and shave the other side of your face. If you do not immediately notice that the blade is now more dull you will for sure notice the next time you use the razor. Mine usually last until the wife takes them in the shower.
