Hello. Will my blades be affected if I keep them in a closed can, like a perfume can(Str8 for example)?

I doubt they would be affected if they are stainless. You might want to throw a pack of desiccant (like silica gel) in there just to make sure the moisture stays low.

I agree with what Craig said above.  You may also want to keep whatever container you use out of the bathroom, away from the humidity.

Even if they are DE blades(not straight razor blades)?

They will probably be fine in the bathroom.  My guess is that back in the day when all men used DE's, the blades were kept in the bathroom and they were fine.  I keep my DE blades and straight razors outside of the bathroom in an abundance of caution.

I keep mine in a cigar box I keep in a drawer in the bathroom. Never had a bit of trouble.

What about the blades that are already used? Can they be stored in a closed box, can or drawer?

I keep my blades in cigar boxes with dessicants in a drawer in another room.

I keep mine in a similar plastic organizer on a closet shelf adjacent to the bathroom. The idea was to keep the colorful packets out of the toddlers reach. Never considered rust prevention.

That idea would satisfy my OCD.

I take mine out of the cardboard or plastic and just store all the individually paper wrapped blades in a ziplock inside another ziplock in my bathroom drawer.  No children at my house.

They should be fine. I've been working my way through a few hundred feathers for almost a decade. They live in the bathroom and they are fine. Smile

Ha! I use the same setup, mine is a plastic bin from Hobby Lobby, stored on a closet shelf, away from the kids. In a couple years, they will be old enough so I can keep a pack of blades in the bathroom drawer, but I love the ability to keep everything organized in the transparent case.

I prefee to keep mine on a top shelf in a hallway closet. Just to minimize moisture and keep them out of reach.

I basically use just three blades, Astra SP, Feather and Voskhod, about 400 blades fit in the case. Bulk storage packs are stored separate.
