P is for Ping. That's good enough for me.

Keeping Disposable Razors Good

A month or so ago on one of the popular lifehacking sites, I saw a tip from a man who said he’d been using the same disposable razor for a year-and-a-half. The tip was simple: every so often, run your razor along your forearm (in the direction that isn’t “shaving”). They couldn’t explain why this works, but I tried it out and sure enough: it does. I had a pretty old razor, but doing that once brought it back to life and gave me a nice, close shave!

The disposable razor industry will try and keep this under wraps, so if this Ping is replaced by an ad for Gillette razors, you know they’ve gotten to me.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
