Shaving, Part II: Save more water
Have you ever thought about how much water goes down the drain while you’re shaving?
Earlier this week, I shared a tip about how much Harry’s razors have simplified life for us. You can read that post here.
Today, I’ve got another shaving tip, this time about water.
If your faucet goes on-off-on-off-on-off-on-off-on-off during your shaving routine, or (heaven forbid) you just let-it-run (but would never admit it, of course), this tip is for you.
When I worked as a wilderness guide, one of my campers insisted on shaving during our week-long camping trip. I thought this was ridiculous (who shaves in the woods!? The trees don’t care). But this chica taught me a great strategy for super-low-water shaving.
Now I use it all the time and save tons of water. Here's how.
SUPER SIMPLE WAY TO SHAVE AND SAVE
1. Get a jar. Wide-top. Fill with water.
2. Lather up.
3. Then shave, dunk the razor to rinse, shave, dunk, shave, dunk, shave, dunk (you get it).
4. Rinse and done!
Simple as that.
This method is easier, uses way less water, and allows you to shave no matter where you are: with the luxury of indoor plumbing or totally out in the wild.
Try it, I dare you.
