What is the safest method of blade disposal?
Boca Raton, FL
The best and safest way to dispose your used blades is to use a blade bank. Several online retailers offer them for purchase or complimentary with a blade order. These inexpensive tin canisters have a slit cut in the top so you can drop in old blades for safe keeping. Some men use a coffee can or other holder, but I prefer the blade banks because they are small and inconspicuous among my shaving supplies. Plus, when the bank is full (which takes a long time because it holds a lot of blades) I take a hammer and pound it flat so that no blades can fall out in the trash. Using a blade bank gives me peace of mind that my children and pets are safe from discarded razor blades.
