about a year and a half ago, i switched from "mainstream razors" (heh) to the preserve brand. i had been using them as travel razors, and decided to just promote them to full-time. i've had great luck with them, with one exception: the soap scum, which then turns to mildew. gross. if you've ever seen the preserve razors, you'll know what i'm talking about: they have a jujillion nooks and crannies in the handle, which basically serve as soap scum collectors, so my razor slowly turns white, then black. delicious.
i don't particularly want to buy something even more icky to spray on it (or soak it in), so can some of you help me out and tell me about good natural cleaners that work on soap scum or mildew? i know lots of people whip up their own miracle concoctions of vinegar + whatever, but i'm not one of those people, so it's better for me to ask rather than to accidentally blow up my house. anyone?
