    Default .5 Crox Spray

    So just have a quick question about the spray. Can I use it on the inside of my SRD premium linen Strop, or will it contaminate the other side. I want to use lynns trick for refreshing my razor when the time comes. Thanks guys

    I would recommend the crayon of paste instead:

    I keep mine of a separate strop. It can be messy stuff when you are applying it. It is pretty good once it has been applied and dried.

    the answer is yes you can just apply it to the inside of your linen, as Shaun said though it can be messy so be careful, also what was said about the crayon is good advise too. it keeps the mess down or use a paste made out of powdered CRoX and mineral oil and apply with your finger.
    plus make sure your using razor quality CRoX Tc

    Yup, separate pasted strop is best, spray is messy, crayon is better.

    Contamination is an issue.

    Get a length of strapping from a fabric store for a few bucks and paste that.

    You can buy a paddle strop on Ebay for $10 shipped and crayon crox for $6. It's a cheap and non-messy solution.

    Thanks so much for the quick replies. I was going to get the crayon but they are sold out.

    Make sure you are buying your Crox from a reputable source. Polishing bars and Crox sold as "green compounds" can contain a lot of impurities and the particle size of the abrasives can vary.
    I paste a different strop just to avoid cross contamination, as mentioned above you can buy a piece of linen cheap and make a paddle strop.

    I use the powder form of Chromium Oxide. I obtained a jar containing 100grams a few years ago from a Pottery Supply company. It is used in the pottery industry as a glaze and as a colouring agent. The 100gram jar is still over half full, and it's going to last another few years, but at a measly 8 dollars it is cheap, and pure, no crayon base or mixed in a slurry with water. I use a cotton strop, which I treat by putting a teaspoon in a tea strainer and 'dust' the strop, until covered. I then dampen it with sprayed on water, leave it for 24 hours, and it's a terrific result.
