Do you clean the wax residue on your blades?

I try and use blades with no residue, as in the back of my mind I think it may affect blade gap etc. I'm a crazy person :)
I wonder if the wax will affect the performance of the blade somehow? Still, I’m too lazy to do anything about it 😂

If anything it will reduce chatter (if you have a crap razor) and deaden sound, making for a quieter shave, might even reduce the corrosion tendencies of zamak, or lubricate threads for longer life.

I have no idea to be honest my friend, it's just an OCD thing :) One thing I really dislike is unwrapping the blade and having the wax paper tear and stick to the blade because of glue spots. Cleaning the plate and top cap because of glue spots is also annoying.
