Look! Old School Bathroom Razor Disposal

Look! Old School Bathroom Razor Disposal

This was scary: during our kitchen renovation we tore out some walls. One wall is shared with our second bathroom on the other side, and we didn't realize that would mean rusty old razor blades flying everywhere as the drywall was pulled out. Yes, there was blood...

Apparently back in the day, some medicine cabinets had a tiny slit where you would dispose of old razor blades. Where do the blades go? Not "away" really, just into the wall. Unfortunately the guy helping us tear up our kitchen wasn't expecting flying razor blades. Has this ugly result of things coming back to you happened to anyone else??

Read more on the topic with Maxwell's post on the concept of "away" and the magic razor blade slits.
