I recently had to throw away a can of Edge because the screw on the bottom of the can rusted away to the point where something gave and shaving cream- not the gel that comes out the top, but normal shaving cream- began shooting out the bottom. I couldn't stop it because the screw seemed to be stripped, and I ended up throwing the can away.

The episode raised a few questions: What is the advantage to using gel if the product is really the same as other brands of shaving cream (which it obviously was- the same stuff with a slightly different delivery method)? If the point was that it was supposed to use a different propellant and thus was safer for the environment, then doesn't this experience of mine reveal that as a lie? Or does the fact that the propellant is used differently make some kind of difference? Maybe none of my assumptions- based on the fact that Edge products first hit the market at a time when aerosol products were being removed from the market because of the harm they do to the ozone layer- follow because they don't apply, and Edge is the way it is just to be different and the point is to stand out from the rest? Any thoughts?
