Do unused disposable razors expire?

I don't think they do.

I read that after three uses the blade becomes dull and can nick you.

To prevent bacteria buildup and razor burn, you should toss your razors every week, or every three to four shaves.

Solution: Get a new razor every week, and make sure to let it dry between uses.

If your razor is sealed I don't see why it would be a problem but if it's out of its package it might have gotten wet and damaged the blade. You might want to purchase new razors to be on the safe side.

Good luck!

I don't think so. Interesting question

I know some cheaper brands that I've purchased at the dollar store started to rust when I've left them aside for a long time. They were never used and yet they got damaged. Just make sure to inspect them first, just in case. You wouldn't want to shave with a rusty blade.

Probably not. on Jun 14, 2015 @ 07:29 pm

I can't say for sure, but I can say with a great deal of certainty that disposable razors do NOT expire. Well, the unopened, unused ones don't. There's no expiration date on the package, as far as I can see. Any razor that's used will dull out over time. The blades also collect bacteria, so any razor that's been sitting out in the open for a long period of time should probably be thrown away. Razors left out in the air or left wet will probably rust, those should be thrown out also.

Bottom line, new, unopened razors do not expire.

I was so over paying for razors and then they would feel dull after only a couple of shaves, I signed up for the Dollar shave club and now I can use an amazing 5 blade razor and switch it weekly for only like $6 a month. It's a really awesome service I'd definitely recommend it's saved me lots of money time and the blades are actually really good quality

No, they do not. However, you should throw them away after you notice they aren't cutting the hair and/or you Nick yourself. But a word of caution, I was advised not to buy disposable ones from the dollar store. My dad did and he ended up cutting his face and/or just didn't work at all.

I don't see how they would, the blade wouldn't just get dull. So I'd say they are good forever

Expire? Probably not ... wear out and dull ... easily
