    How long do you use the same razor blade?

    I just noticed today on a pack of new blade cartridges that it says to replace every 3 shaves. To me that seems excessive. Then again I use mine about 10 times, and knowing me thats probably excessive on the other end of the scale. So how long do you use yours for.

    Until I think it's not gonna be very good at shaving effectively.

    Until it doesn't shave clean enough. If I changed it every three times I would spend a fortune on blades.

    Yep, I use them until they become too blunt to do anything.

    every 2 shaves or so. mind you, i dont shave very often, and when i do ive got a lot of fairly coarse hair on my face, so its just the best way really .

    Although, used a disposable razor last week, and I liked it a lot. Perfectly sharp every time? Yes please.

    ill use razors on my legs and underarms for longer than ill use ones on my bikini area. I often have 2 razors on the go for that reason.
    for bikini area probably 4 shaves. For legs, until it starts grazing me and doesnt shave smoothly. Sometimes Ill just use the razor thats been bikini`d out as a leg razor for a while afterwards

    I tend to use the same razor about 3 times. Any less, it would be really expensive.

    The razor I use for my bikini area gets used once and once only. For my legs and underarms I use it until it it does not shave clean.

    Disposable razors are evil and should be culled though....

    Well when everybody says, I use it till it doesn't shave well anymore, how long is that generally?
