I have some questions about alum blocks. Right now I use Osma Block in the box http://www.amazon.com/Bloc-Osma-Alum-Blo...B004NEHR28. After I use is it I dry the block on a towel and then store it in the box. Should I use a separate plastic container for the block? Should I leave it out to air dry?

I'm just air drying the one in my den, and that works fine - sits on a shelf next to my brushes.

In my GoBag I have a tiny one in a plastic push-up tube - I just wipe that off on a towel before putting the cap back on, and that works fine too.

Alex7 I use the laggards alum block that came with a plastic container. After use I do not dry the block but I do return it to the container. I have heard from friends that if left next to metal or such it will cause things to rust! Hope this helps

I just use mine and let it air dry before putting it back in the container.

air dry. Interesting comments about it causing issues with metals. Mine came in a small cardboard box and I just keep the Alum stored on its own without any storage box, etc inside my medicine cabinet next to my after shaves. Not sure what long term issue if any would be caused by not storing it in its own box.

When I have a rough shave and use one I wipe it down and put it in a travel soap container with the lid open for a few. Then when dry close it up and back in the drawer.

I also use Osma, love it.  I just use a small soap dish with a lid when traveling and at home.
