The end3829 viewsThe Ranger Tech (on the right) completely submerged in mineral oil. Note that the blade compartment is open. This allows the oil to reach all of the razor's moving parts. Next to it is a Gillette "Slimboy" that I restored at the same time. After the razors sit in oil for a while, I remove them from the container, let the excess oil run off, then give them a final wipe with a dry washcloth. You may elect to rinse the razor in hydrogen peroxide or soak it in some before drying it and putting it in the oil.

Step 13471 viewsA well-used example of the very scarce Gillette Ranger Tech. We have some soap scum, weird green stuff, and rust stains from an old blade.

Step 53314 viewsBen's Restoration Army: toothbrushes, MAAS, and mineral oil. Cotton swabs are great for getting into the hard-to-reach spots. Resist the temptation to cut corners and use a Dremel or other power tool to buff the razor. You can permanently ruin the razor's finish.

Step 73176 viewsInside the blade compartment. The oily film is MAAS.

Step 63013 viewsThe razor after a thorough scrubbing with MAAS polish and a toothbrush. Note that MAAS can leave an oily residue that makes the otherwise clean metal look smudged. Simply run the razor under warm water while scrubbing it with a washcloth. Using the toothbrush instead will only put more MAAS on the razor. It's really not water-soluble stuff.

Step 42517 viewsI immediately put the razor in boiling water to loosen the rather severe gunk. Note: boiling gold razors can ruin the finish.
