Question about Health & Beauty
WHY,when the colored strip on the razor cartridge washes off after 4 to 6 shaves, are the blades always dull? They use to last more than one week!!
Expensive replaceable cartridges are only made to offer 4-6 "good" shaves for most people. Sorry - that's the deal. You can strop cartridges (in on direction only) on denim and pick up maybe a dozen more - search youtube for examples. I finally gave up on carts and moved to a straight razor; a razor or two will last for a lifetime with good care. There IS a learning curve for safe use and maintenance procedures. Find a straight razor forum if you want great shaves and good advice on what to buy, what not to buy and how to be safe.
Double edged safety razors are also a very good alternative for better, smoother shaves and WAY less expensive blades. Same advice - find a razor forum to save money, buy right and avoid nicks.

Testimonial: "Dan,I appreciate the time and EXCELLENT advice you have conveyed in addressing my problem. I've heard the "double edge" razors were making a come back.I remember my dad using those blades and they lasted him 2 or 3 weeks of shaving every day. Believe I'll be getting one. As for the straight razor, they have been in use for decades for a good reason.They are easy to maintain their edge for a close smooth shave and last forever. As for the "cartridges" The manufacturers know as that strip of lubricant wears off the ANGLE/DEGREE of the blade changes pulling the wiskers more than cutting. What do we do then? We buy more of their cartridges. I would'nt be surprised to find out that it only cost them .05 to .15 cents to manufacture/make each cartridge.(and charge us $12 to $18.00 for a package with 4 cartridges in it. Again, Thank-You for your EXCELLENT advice to remedy my problem."

For Arcitec shavers, the entire head assembly is replaced. If you bought replacements that are different, you must have bought the wrong type. The type you need is linked below from shaveroutlet.com
Installation is simple. See diagram below for visual instructions

legs shouldn't leave cuts on your leg unless you use a blunt blade or don't use
a shaving cream or body wash - in these situations the razor doesn't glide
along the skin and can cause cuts.

The blades should be changed every 4-6 shaves or more
frequently if you have a very coarse beard. A dull blade will cause you to push
down harder in order to be effective, pulling at your hairs and skin and
causing irritation and possibly ingrown hairs.
