RE: WARNING...
I did the same to a beautiful rotbart. From now on, the only razors that see barbicide are my stainless razors. I also forgot the rotbart was in there, and found it the next day.

RE: WARNING...
Ben I am sorry this happened to you.

Yes, Barbicide and Marvicide are caustic. You must follow the label and dilute the product exactly as directed for barber tools and equipment or it will eat through weak spots in plating. That is what is causing the leaching is the chemical reaction.

That is why you use it only for 10 minutes max at very low concentrations mixed with water.

I am thankful that even with the stronger Marvicide, I have not had this problem. Yes, I did clean my Aristocrat with it and had no issues.

Well as others have said off it goes to get replated.

I probably didn't dilute it enough and I became distracted (I have 3 children under the age of 7) and left it for about an hour or so...

RE: WARNING...
Wow. This really makes me nervous. I've always diluted and used the Barbicide for only ten minutes, but I've just kind of mixed it generally. Perhaps I should be more accurate, or maybe even dilute it a tad bit more than it should be, as I disinfect all my razors at each cleaning. So far I haven't had any issues, but scares me that this could happen.

Thanks for posting the warning. Keeps us all on our toes. Sorry you had to be the example. Its gonna be a beaut when you get it back from replating though. Would love to find one of these in my price range.
