How do you sterilize a vintage safety razor?


According to the experts at The Razor Emporium, who specialize in restoration, you can sterilize a vintage razor pretty easily. They recommend first scrubbing the razor with an old toothbrush using dish soap and warm water. Then after the razor is clean, pour rubbing alcohol on all of the surfaces to sterilize it. At The Razor Emporium, they go a step further with their vintage razors by using a special cleaning unit that emits high frequency sound waves to agitate the razor to thoroughly remove all microscopic traces of dust, dirt, or oil that may be embedded on the finish. This ultrasonic cleaning with Barbasol ensures that their vintage razors are as clean and sterile as surgical instruments.
