i have used metal containers so i can put them in the scrap metal bin at work..
I am a new Wet Shaver, so I came up with this for blade disposal, an empty Fish Oil Tablet Dispenser Bottle. It should hold a couple of hundred blades.
Like someone posted earlier, I use this little baby. Cheap enough to toss when full, small enough to be out of the way, and isn't an eye sore. My poor wife works hard to make the house look good. I don't want something that's going to look like it belongs in the trash sitting next to my wife's beautiful bathroom soap containers and such.
However, if I could get away with having an old can or something, I would.
You figure it out Halloween?
Altoids tin, the tape when its full.
Lump me into the altoids/no kids group.
Just bought a new tin after this one which has lasted 4-5 years.
I keep my can in a drawer with my shaving gear. I wouldn't keep it on the counter...
No drawers or cabinets unfortunately, just shelves.
Buy a new can of Chicken or Beef broth and then cut a small blade size slit in the top of the can. Drain, rinse, spray paint, decorate or not. Shazam! You now have a very secure, small, safe and stable container that will hold a s-load of used blades and sits nicely in your bathroom cabinet or on the counter top. When it's full place a piece of tape across the slit and dispose into the trash. Problem safely solved for less than a buck.
My favorite Altoids tin is the one from the Altoids Arctic. It’s a perfect size. When it’s full, we label it, tape it shut and then put it in the recycling.
I use a blade bank that I bought from Italian Barber, it was a couple of bucks.
Here is what I've started using recently. It didn't take me long to use up the contents. I go through a lot of smoked paprika these days. It's the secret to everything. I'll probably grab a few more of this one just for the all-metal can.
I was looking for the secret for everything:
