Sharpologist Editor’s note: If you’re in the shaving business and in need of resources, here are our recommendations to set you up for success:


Properly Cleaning/Sanitizing  

  1. Barbercide does wonders.
  2. Boil metal razors, parts
  3. Clean shaving knots
  4. Rubbing alcohol works great.

I’ll tell you how to do it!
