Step 1

Rinse your disposable razor after every two or three strokes. Rinsing in between razor strokes helps remove a build-up of cut hairs and shaving cream.

Step 2

Perform a final rinse when your shave is complete. Place the disposable razor under the water, rotating it as you rinse to remove hair and shaving cream from between the blades and around the head of the razor.

Step 3

Pour an inch or two of isopropyl alcohol into a paper cup. Dip the head of your disposable razor into the isopropyl alcohol to sanitize the blades for your next use.

Step 4

Pat the disposable razor and blade dry with a clean paper towel--do not rub. Alternatively, let the razor air dry with the blades facing up to avoid dulling.

Step 5

Snap the plastic blade protector provided by the manufacturer back on the razor head. Store the disposable razor blade in a dry area until the next use.
