Dear sirs,

First of all my goods are:
Feather ac dx straight
Feather as-d2

Simpson best

For double edge and straight;
Daily care: simply rinse with water remove the blade gently towel de and blade than put the blade on and leave. (if ill not use de for 3-4 days ill keep blade out of it)
Weekly: just clean with cologne and detergent.
Monthly: clean with disinfictant (ecodent) and mineral oil.
if ill not use it for a long perioed mineral oil.

For brushes:
Daily: rinse with cold water, gently towel and hang it outside, and use daily rotation.
Monthly: clean with shampoo

Any suggestions? i should avoid or add to routine?

Many thanks

I never takes the blade out of the razor until it's time to toss it - less chance of cutting myself or dulling the edge. I simply rinse the razor under hot water, shake it off, and set it to dry. Every once in a while I'll disassemble the razors, wash them with warm water, soap and a toothbrush - and give them an ultrasonic bath to get rid of the last crud.

I don't think you need to shampoo your brushes once a month if you thoroughly rinse and dry them after every use. Similarly, I don't think you need to disinfect your razors once a month if you are the only user, but if you aren't I'd be disinfecting every time some other than me used a razor.

My ritual:

Rinse the brush under warm water for 1 minute after usage,
then dry it in a clean towel.
Do the same with the razor.

That's it.

I rotate my razors and brushes and problably use each of my razors and brushes 5-10 times a year.

I simply soak razors in full-strength Simple Green for a few minutes, and the crud melts away. I haven't needed to clean brushes, but if I did I would pur in SG for just a minute or so.

Razor - I simply rinse it off under running tap water, I then fill my tea cup used for soaking the brush with Rubbing Alcohol and let it sit in there for a few seconds and give it a swish. I change the blade every 6 days, and wipe it down then with more Alcohol,let let it dry and then put the new blade in.

Brush - I run it under running water and lightly ring it out.

I also do not keep my gear in the bathroom, the reason being it is a moist environment and Steel can still corrode , I also do not want my Brush to rot.

I never would have considered Simple Green (which I use for general cleaning), what about a gentle hair shampoo?

For both razors and brushes I don't do anything. I rinse the razor after shaving and dry and lightly buff my brush on a towel. No need to shampoo once a week or really at all. For the razor I used to use a toothbrush and Scrubbing Bubbles every month or so, but I don't anymore.
