    I must be the lucky one, I store all my straights openly in holders in the bathroom and have for several years and have seen no signs of any rust I also never apply any oil to a blade but due ensure it's completely dry before putting away.

    I am not sure a cat could jump on these, well maybe the aftershaves

    To the original topic... i dunno, my wife uses the water of the shower so hot, that i think it can blister me.. when she opens the bathroom door it's like she was coming out fo a criogenic chamber in the movies.. creeeeeepy! LOL
    anyway with that level of humidity in the air. i have NEVER dared to leave a razor on the bathroom, i clean and dry, take it to my office, put int aside waiting for it to finish drying, later i just pt some camellia oil and put it back in one of my boxes with desiccant.. i buy those Chinese white blocks that you can plug into a electric socket and it auto dries and "recharge".. also use a humidity level on the larger razors box.. the one with razors that are collection instead of "use as much as you can" and check every now and then.. if the humidity level goes over 40% i take one of the dehumidifiers (have two in that box) put it to dry ad then dry the other... but it rarely happens as it's a large box with seal and i rarely use the razors or knives i have there.. it does get humid as any time you open the lid fresh air enters.. ad also when a new razor arrives, even if i clean it and oil it, it some times also have a small qty of humidity that goes into the ai and then to the desiccant...

    one important thing to remember is that humid air is lighter than dry air so it goes to the top, so if you want to use dessicant never put it on the bottom, but on the top. as well as your humidity sensor.

    i know it's a bit extreme but you know... I freak out thinking some of them get rusty(er)

    I live in FL and it is very humid. I purchased razor sleeves from SRD and store my razors in them. Never get rust. Anything like the chemicals you used can cause the fumes to rust or erode metal. I would not keep the razors in the bathroom because the humidity can also cause the blade to rust. Try the sleeves, they cost about $4.50 each but they do work. People have stored guns in the same material with great results.

    Wow, I'm a little surprised so many leave there razors in the bathroom. Of course, I don't straight shave that often. I always wipe mine down with oil afterwards, probably excessively.

    Those aftershave bottles look a bit like hot sauce bottles on my phone (which would have been really out of place). That could lead to a painful mixup if it had been the case!

    They are repurposed hot sauce bottles, I truly hate aftershave in plastic so it made sense to put the Clubman line in all the same bottles and the labels were easy to remove.
