    On most Gillettes scrubbing bubbles work great as they are made out of solid brass.
    The hoffritz I destroyed was plated pot metal.SBs being on the caustic side reacted with the pot metal and really ate it up
    Same here. That pre-WWll slant was pot metal. Probably made when Germany was reserving brass for building their war machine. Most of the earlier, as well as the post war slants are brass IME. I probably wouldn't have lost the plating if I hadn't left it in the soup too long. Woulda, shoulda, coulda ........ ...........

    No,I use it straight.Simple green is interesting stuff.Back when I started in medicine (early 60s) it was known as green soap and was used in our dog lab as a surgical prep, so it has some anti bacterial propertys yet is also non toxic to humans and the environment.
    You can actually brush your teeth with it (I have).

    Well, I don't know if I'll be leaving my toothpaste behind, but perhaps I'll try it on the razor. Thanks for the help!

    Tincture of Green Soap has been used in tattooing , to prep customers, and to wash off ink/blood, a the tattooing progresses for decades. Still in use today by most pro tattooers.
