    Razorblades...the biggest rip off the the history of retail. Nothing like an 80% profit margin.

    "Stropping" the edge of a blade has to be done to both sides, or it ends up with a curled, rounded lip to the un-stropped side.

    I'd be REALLY careful shaving after doing this a couple times; could get bloody.

    If you actually care about the quality of the blade and look after it you'll get a cut-throat.

    if you want them to last forever I heard that if you cryo freeze them they never go dull. We sell cryo frozen drill bits and it makes them almost indestructable. they throw other things in the freezer to see what happens and they said all the warehouse guys get their razors frozen, golf clubs, etc.

    or bottled water at 800% profit margin :lol:

    Printer ink comes to mind. Any disposable product they just rake you for.

    I really hope this jeans thing works. I get so mad when i have to buy new blades.

    What's the profit margin on something you can get for free?

    Drano is another one thats always bothered me. So, I pay you for a product that I literally flush down the toilet? That sucks.

    I thought about trying it on my husbands first. But I use the cheap ones. Does it work on those too?

    I would put ANY cable for cell-phones in same category.

    Fortunately, my Blackberry is just a nice simple USB :yes:
