Hello. How do I remove limescale off a safety razor? After every shave I wipe down the razor with a microfiber cloth. After every blade change(about once every 4 shaves), I clean the razor with a toothbrush, water and dish soap. I used CIF Bathroom Ultrafast, but I believe it may have damaged my first safety razor(Edwin Jagger 89DE). Now I have a Wilkinson Sword Classic Safety Razor. No matter how dry my razor it, after some time limescale appears. Maybe it's because I have hard water.

Try vinegar.  Then rinse thoroughly.

Just put some in a glass or bowl and dip the razor in it.

That is for preventing, not removing Wink

Vinegar, toothbrush, patience. Possible some scrubbing bubbles or whatever they are called, but that can attack the plating on some razors.

Should I soak the razor in a container with water and vinegar, and then scrub with a toothbrush? What kind of vinegar should I use?

I put regular white vinegar (7%) on the toothbrush, but I have soft water and only limited trouble with scaling. YMMV depending on the strength of the vinegar and the hardness of water, but I would err on the side of caution before doing a full soak.
