Just curious how & where everyone stores their blades? I'm concerned about storing in the bathroom because of the moisture, also safety concerns since I have 2 young sons.

Most modern blades are stainless so moisture isn't a factor. I buy Feather blades by the sleeve & have individual dispensers of 10. I store my used blades in an old glass barbasol shave cream jar.

If you only have stainless then moisture is of no ,practically no, concern. Mine are mostly boxed, brush boxes, and on top shelf of the closet. Vintage ones in dispensers that are in use I keep in a Geo. F. Trumpers burlap bag on same shelf. Many nights though you'll find them (the vintage ones) spread out all over the bed. I'm like a kid with a marble collection, and my wife is so happy I directed my disorder to blades instead of brushes.

I live by the ocean so rust is always a concern. I store my blades in those plastic food containers with locking lids.

A half dozen or so opened packs of different blades in the bathroom, the rest of the stash is in my dresser.

It reminds me, I need to top off.. I only have a couple of years worth of blades right now Tongue

I keep mine in sealed baggies in the bathroom cupboard and take out a five pack as needed.

Top shelf of closet where Pyewacket can't hurt, or get hurt by my treasures with a dessicant. Mid closet has cedar and mothballs for moths. The Floor is my modest wine cellar.

For Me to keep away from the girl friend and/or kids I put blades on top of a cabinet on a wall in the bathroom (about 7' high).

For old blades, you can pick up a Blade Disposal Case for cheap or also I have read about people cutting a slot in the medicine cabinet and the blades just drop into the wall. You could buy a medicine cabinets with a lock on it or add a lock to your cabinet.

This can fit blade packs of various sizes. I have used this exact one but I prefer old cigar boxes. This is somewhat safer since it latches. If you have a lot of blades you could use a large tackle box with a lock.

I store mine in the same repurpose wine box that I keep my razors in. This is kept out of the bathroom - partly because the bathroom in our little rented house is too small - on a shelf in the second bedroom.

I just keep them in their original cartons! I have never had any issues and I have had some blades for over 3 years, now.

If anyone is still worried, save a used blade, clean and put into some water as a test.

I keep my blades in wooden cigar boxes on a shelf in a closet outside the bathroom. Inside each box are a few small dessicant packages. Being that all the blades are stainless steel, the dessicant is probably not needed, but I figure it can't hurt, so why not?
