    A good 10min bath in barbicide. That's what the product was designed specifically for, it does not get any simpler than that.

    92% alcohol = 8% water.

    I was using straight isopropanol but that 92 percent stuff still evaporates much faster than water.

    My observation is that %ge alcohol always leaves water behind on steel. No biggy if you wipe it off I guess.

    For years my "sterilization" method has been as follows:
    1. Upon initial acquisition and clean up spray the razor down several times with Scrubbing Bubbles (available for about $3 a can at any grocery store.)
    2. After that repeat the process at around six month intervals or whenever you do a touch up hone.
    3. Never Dull or other metal polish as required.

    To date I have yet to contract tetanus or any other disease associated with blood borne pathogens.
    The older I get, the better I was

    Im looking at getting one of these

    Steamed towels for face prep and after shave, plus can sterilise towels and razors. Not cheap per se, but a bit of luxury and functionality combined.
    It's nice to be important, but more important to be nice

    I guess I'm a purist!

    Blades get a Barbicide soak after initial cleanup/restoration
    Face prep includes a washcloth run under hot tap water

    No problems to date. Haven't had a blade give me Ebola yet and the tap water gets too hot for my hands so it's sufficient to heat up whiskers.

    At one point, I bought the high end Sonic Care that had a UV sterilization cabinet for the brush head. It (the cabinet portion) eventually died and I saw little benefit to paying hundreds for another.
    The easy road is rarely rewarding.
