Hello,
  
I need to hear from Mongoose users. I love this razor so far, I'm just 5 shaves in. Has any one noticed were the blade is sandwiched in when the razor is closed, I took mine apart and they were rusts spots all over  the finish from the blade. I guess it's were there's no air space, and moisture stays under the blade. I hope I don't have to unscrew  and let they blade dry everyday. If I do that that will overtime wear out threads screwing and unscrewing  daily. I thought would get by just to disassemble and clean between blades changes,  but I guess not. it took me forever to get the rust spots off my razor. Any suggestions ?

Those are tea stains, some kaboom and a tooth rush takes them right out for my ss razors. But I've started dissassembling my ss razors post use to prevent this. Some ppl do a quick alcohol dip to disperse the water which might be quite a bit easier

Simply daily apply some Camellia oil or mineral oil to the threads as both are natural ingredients. Those threads should last a lifetime. If fact, you can rub this on all your razor's surfaces for metal protection.

I only open my Mongoose to change blades. Since I easily get 20+ shaves per blade that can mean going a month or more before opening. I'm getting close to 1 year with it & still haven't noticed any rust spots or stains & I have very hard water. 

I simply rinse thoroughly and shake the water out before towel drying the outside.

Thanks,

 I'll give the shaking the razor a try. I have really never tried that, I normally just rinse and let air dry. I don't understand why I'm having this problem, maybe this will solve my problem."

Try a long rinse in hot water post-shave. Warming up the razor will make it dry faster. 

I haven't had any issues as long as I do this.

That's what I do as well.  I give it a full cleaning whenever I change blades.

I think the threads will be fine and I don't see them wearing out from daily use and unscrewing

I always take my razor apart after the shave and dab the entire razor and blade with 90% isopropyl alcohol. I am razor bump/ingrown prone so must keep bacteria to a minimum. I also only use feather guards for 3-4 shaves and discard. I shave 2-3 times per week. 

I have no rust marks on my Goose.

I would hope not - no way i'd go thru all that hassle, you're a better man than me I guess!  

For me the hot water rinse keeps my blades rust-free for 12 shaves, even in the humid climate I live in.

I personally rinse t with hot water and wipe it throughly with a cloth, dry the blade and put it away. No rust issues what so ever.
I am not aware that bacteria can cause ingrown hairs, I wouldn't doubt it but honestly I just don't know.
Would hot water rinse take care of any bacteria?
