    I'll try this returning the used blades to Mama Earth idea, one of the reasons I'm into wet shaving is to lessen or nullify environmental impact. Again, this place is great; wisdom of the ancients (and not so ancients) + a touch of humor combined with camaraderie.

    How about a Razor Blade Radio!!
    How to Make a Crystal Radio

    If you appreciate ingenuity, simplicity, and like instant gratification from your radio projects, then you ought to spend a few minutes building your own foxhole radio. Foxhole radios were built by GIs in World War II from materials they had easy access to in the field. They usually consist of just a coil and a detector. They use a point detector, the chief component being an ordinary razor blade.

    The steel cut rolled oats I buy come in a tin can. I just cut a slit in the top and slip them in when used.

    that's also a solution I've read will work for ebonizeing wood. I havent tried it yet but apparently the wood reacts to the iron and turns black the same way wood found on things like old barns turns black around old rusty nails.

    I've lived in apts that had the slot in the back of the medicine cabinet to dump blades. Showing my age.

    have a vintage blade bank and a newer one that I got as a free gift when I ordered a shaving brush. Leisure Guy, IIRC, posted some years ago, to take a can of evaporated milk, or whatever, cut a slit and use the contents, slip the blades in the slit. Once the can is full, solder the slit closed and throw in the trash.

    My medicine cabinet has the slot that I shove most of mine into. If I'm traveling ill bring a pack of feathers with me and use their disposal section on the container. Now I have found myself in a few situations where these options were not available and I improvised. Wrap blade with TP, then with electrical tape and throw it in the trash can.

    If I am at home I just throw them into the bin in the bathroom if I am away I wrap them in the raper I took the new blade out of and toss them into the bin as well.

    I have never cut myself or know of a razor cutting anyone else.


    I'd like a hole in the wall to put used blades.

    Here's another vote for using the slot on the base of a pack of DE blades.
