I use a old horseradish jar, because it was ready at the right time.I was just curious if anyone actually uses the blade disposal slots on the back of some brands of blade dispensers. For example, Feather and Wilkinson have these.
I was just thinking that they’re a great idea for safety reasons. However, for environmental reasons, in my mind, using these slots would create the same problems as cartridges and disposable razors create. That is that the steel and plastic can longer be easily recycled once they’re combined. So instead of being recycled, used blades and dispensers will likely end on a landfill. Not good in my opinion.
Just curious how you all think about these slots. And if you don’t use ‘m, how do you actually safely dispose of used blades?
Took a little while to eat the contents, but I’m now using an Aldi smint-like tin. Works well, I put a cardboard divider in so have a tuck of fresh blades and space for plenty of used blades. Thanks, @Zorro, for the suggestion.For small volume use on the road, how about an old Mints tin ? The upright Smints ones are very usefull for storing stuff and you could probably get 30 or more blades in one easily.
My wife has recently bought me the small black one. It was thoughtful of her. I'm concerned it may rust as the whole thing is metal.View attachment 113405
The one on the left, the black one, works alright but is small, has a metal bottom, and it's expensive. The next one, blue, is or was a moneybox. It's bigger. The Gentleman one is enormous - same height as a toilet roll (were you wondering why I put it there?) and cost me £1.97 inc VAT and postage from Temu. It will outlast me. It has a metal lid. If you have more money than sense you'll buy it from Amazon for £10 plus postage.
I always dry the blade, pat it in a towel, before putting it in. I might want to use one again to scrape something off the floor.My wife has recently bought me the small black one. It was thoughtful of her. I'm concerned it may rust as the whole thing is metal.
I still have my glass jar if it does.
