I have found that Schick Hydro 5 blade razors last considerably longer than Gillette Mach3 razors.

Bill

and my annual razor cost is about $5, because I use double edge blades.

You mentioned that you clean the stubble from your blade. Do you run the blade under running water and/or another process after you are finished shaving?

In my case since I shave in the shower, I wash the stubble with the shower nozzle before pat drying with a towel.

You can cut your annual cost even further by buying your razors from Dorco (http://www.dorcousa.com/). From what I understand, they supply Dollar Shave Club, but if you buy direct, they are even less expensive and have a greater selection of product. I switched from Mach 3 to their 3-blade system and am extremely happy. I can get a year's worth of blades for what a couple months worth of Gillete would cost.

I just wanted to echo Paul's comment. I have a Schick Hydro 5; I just use soap as shaving lubricant. I do clean the blades after each use, but I don't try the soaking in mineral oil regime.

I easily get more than a month's worth of shaving out of each blade.

Doug, are you using the Hydro 5 Power or nonPower version?

Here is a better way to save a bundle on shaving. Break your addiction. You will be surprised at how quickly you can free yourself from the unnatural practice of shaving.

You are pawns of Madison Avenue opinion makers, psychological hucksters and Gillette safety razor company. Have you ever stopped to examine you motivations for shaving?

The very premise of this post is following "rules". As yet, there is no federal law which mandates shaving. Read the articles linked below to make an enlightened decision, while there is still time...

I had a beard in 1985. It wasn't comfortable. And I looked scary. Women and dogs were scared of me.

Doug T.

I use the ordinary version -- I was not even aware that the power version existed.

Good to know, Doug. I'd hate to deal with batteries for a shaver. On a side note, there must be variation on the Mach 3 razor quality because my first one lasted a month; my second one was dragging badly on my beard on the second use. Today, the third use, was no better.
