How did people dispose of razor blades in the past?
It's not an uncommon sight for someone remodeling a home to find a wall stuffed full with razor blades.
Why would anyone put razor blades in a wall?
When Safety razors first became popular almost everyone who shaved used one. Everyone needed to dispose of them and landfills and garbage service wasn't all that common.
The solution was cutting a hole in the wall. Usually behind a mirror to conceal it and when you were done with an old razor blade it was dropped in the wall.
Over the years the walls have been sealed up and when someone starts a bathroom remodel on an older home they often find the old collection of razor blades in the wall.
