Cleaning up after a shave is a right pain in the bum. No matter how rigorously I rinse and wipe, there are always a few stray hairs that escape my notice (invariably to the vast annoyance of my wife). If you regularly find yourself in the same hairy predicament, here’s a foolproof “hack” that will help to keep your sink sparkly-clean.
Before you start shaving, simply frame your sink with a few paper towels — and that’s it. Any stray hairs that miss the sink will collect on the paper for quick and easy disposal.
The total cost in towels is around six or seven cents per shave, which is definitely worth it when you consider the time you’ll save. Not to mention a marked drop in passive-aggressive comments from your partner and/or roommate.
If you’re a total cheapskate, you can save money by setting aside slightly used paper towels for later. Tissues and toilet paper will also work in a pinch.
