Each astronaut aboard a spacecraft has a personal hygiene kit with items for cleanliness and grooming during the mission. Contents typically include a comb, hairbrush, toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss, soap, shaving supplies, lip balm, skin cream, nail clippers, deodorant, sleep mask, wet wipes, and ear plugs. NASA transferred to the Museum a variety of extra items, including these razors, from personal hygiene kits packed for the STS-7, -8, and -9 Space Shuttle missions of 1983.
