Stopping The Rust Rings

I leave my shaving cream in the shower so that it is handy when I need to shave my legs but the metal ring around the bottom of the can leaves a rust stain on my tile.

I wonder why , knowing it will be near water, they make a container that would rust in the first place?

How many of you have this same problem?

I have come up with a simple solution that I plan to use from now on, or at least until they can come up with a shaving cream can that doesn’t rust.

I cut the bottom off of a small water bottle to make a cup.

I placed the shaving cream can in the cup.

The fit wasn’t perfect and I was afraid that water would get inside the cup and cause it to fall off so I placed a rubber band around the top of the cup to form a seal and to hold it tightly onto the shaving cream can.

Walla, no more rusting!

I wonder why the manufacturers can’t put plastic or rubber on the bottom of the cans?

Now, I must go on Pinterst and find a way to remove the old rust spots.

Any suggestions?

  7. Actually, we use (the bottoms of) plastic water bottles for just about anything. At times, it makes a good soap dispenser too.

  9. I too was battling this problem. It looks like someone came up with a solution called Rust-O-Less. I added the website above (www.rust-o-less). And it seems to be getting good reviews on Amazon. Very eye pleasing too.
