Hello. This question is for the ones who use Scrubbing Bubbles. Do you use it on the safety razor after every shave, or once in a while? I'm asking because I'm wondering if it's not too abrasive for cleaning the razor often.

For me, only 1-2 times a year or when I sell or photograph a razor.  I don't even know if SB is especially harmful if used more often but for every day use, warm water or warm water and hand soap do just fine for me.

Scrubbing Bubbles seems fine for stainless steel razors.  However, there have been pbosts reporting Scrubbing Bubbles damaging the plating on vintage razors, as well as damaging the anodized finish on aluminum razors.  I would not use it on any metal other than plain stainless steel.

I have only used it when I get an old razor that needs cleanup. When I change blades, I use soap and soft toothbrush to remove soap scum. Dry and polish with a soft cloth.

What type of cloth? Cotton, microfiber? How do you polish the razor?

I use warm water and soft towels. I may use. Q tip to get into tighter areas or a soft bristle tooth brush but never scrubbing bubbles. No particular reason just not my style.

Use it when I get vintage razors, only use the non-bleach formula.

After wet cleaning, for polishing I use an old, well-worn cotton bandana. It's gentle and effective.

I'm one of those reports. I have only used it on grungy vintage razors I've received for the initial cleaning. I would buy the pump Scrubbing Bubbles, not the aerosol. I empty the solution into a Rubbermaid container that will be just large enough to fit a safety razor and hold enough of the solution to cover the razor. So I did this with a German Slant, probably Zamac metal, that had chrome plating. I dropped it in meaning to get it out if 5 minutes but got sidetracked. An hour later the plating was peeling off. So it works, but I wouldn't leave the solution on too long.
