Re: Can you get an STD from sharing razors?

Not terribly likely, but definitely possible, if the infected person gets cut and you get cut. AIDS or Hep-B could be spread this way.

Rinsing well and then soaking with bleach for a full minute between users would most likely kill all viruses, but you still should have your own razor.
