    FYI - Phrank:

    When you need a capable, all-purpose disinfectant for your barber shop, spa or medical office, look no further than Barbicide Disinfectant in this economy-size 128oz concentrate size.

    Simply mix 2oz of disinfectant with 32 oz of water and you have a high-power disinfectant that protects against:

    HIV-1
    Hepatitis B
    Hepatitis C
    pseudomonas
    staph
    salmonella
    fungus

    It even complies with OSHA's bloodborne pathogens standard and is an EPA-registered hospital-grade, broad spectrum disinfectant that is safe for acrylic tanning beds, stainless steel, plastics, combs, brushes, rollers, and shears.

    To keep your utensils lasting longer, it is even formulated with a rust inhibitor and, of course, it will not leave stains on your skin or work surfaces.

    yea, and don't use Clorox or similar. I soaked a Vision DE in the stuff and it destroyed the razor.

    Note about Barbacide - Do not forget that you put your razor in it. I did this once or twice for an extended amount of time (overnight/ forgot about it)......and the blade came out hot and black, like I had soaked it in vinegar...
    Soak for 10 minutes (set the timer) And I think your suppose to let it dry on it's own, then I'd rinse it with really hot water then dry agian.

    Yes - 10 minutes and only ten minutes - rinse and dry.

    I don't let the scales get into the barbicide, even though it says it won't hurt it, why take the chance.

    Mind you, if I get an old razor, I will use the barbicide once, then just do normal cleaning.

    thanks again to everyone....that's why this is my "go to" site....an abundance of info....also the 10 min max rule for barbicide is spot on...if you leave it too long it has an adverse effect....

    I have several vintage DEs. When I first get it I generally use tooth paste and a tooth brush all over. Rinse in Hot water, then emerse the entire razor in rubbing alcohol and let it dry.

    Works every time.
