When it comes to a discussion of hygiene, one subject that needs to be discussed is shaving. Now having a beard does not make you dirty or less hygienic as long as you wash it regularly. But there may come a time when for injuries, skin infections or other medical problems you may need to shave. You may at some point want to shave to change your appearance or to fit in better.
What provisions do you have in your preps when it comes to shaving? The cheapest is to learn to use an old fashion straight razor. Now this takes a bit of skill and kind of scares me. I decided to stock what I think is the second cheapest method. An old fashion safety razor and blades is my choice.
With a little research on the internet, I found packages of 100 safety razor blades for under $30.00. Now with a little care a package should let you shave for a year. While this is not the most important of preps, it may be one that you will be glad to have.
