    Default Rust prevention

    Get yourself an 8 ounce plastic jar with a lid. Fill it with isopropyl alcohol. Add 1 teaspoon
    of mineral oil. Secure the lid on the jar. Shake well.

    When you're finished shaving, dry the razor with a towel or tissue, strop the razor; then
    give the alcohol/oil mixture a good shaking, and dip the blade in the mixture.

    The alcohol evaporates, taking any remaining water with it, and the blade is left with
    a light coating of mineral oil.

    Works like a charm.

    This is fascinating. I thought alcohol evaporates faster than water which would leave water behind. Anyone better than me at science care to help me out here.

    I think you're right. My mistake.

    My understanding that due to alcohol being very soluble in water, combined with it's low evaporation temp, allows quicker drying of "wet" items. People use it to get water out of their ears. And it becomes apparent on your fingertips after using it.
    But yes you should use as pure as you can, like 91%, to lessen the amount of water in the mixture.
    I love living in the past...

    Yes. Isopropanol and/or Ethanol will act as a drying agent.

    I just rinse it, wipe it w/ a damp towel, rinse again, wipe w/ dry towel. Never had a problem, and I have some seriously hard water here. Main thing is to dry it, let it sit while you dress in your bedroom or humid free environment, then store it out of your bathroom (which will also serve to keep prying hands at bay as well). Keep them in the storage case in your sock drawer if you have to.
    Mastering implies there is nothing more for you to learn of something... I prefer proficient enough to not totally screw it up.

    I'm sure I must be misreading this Phrank, but is looks like you are saying you leave the razor in boiling water while you have a shower? Is that right?
