I was just wondering if I could use an old shaver razor thingy to remove algae on the glass that just won't come off.

I often use a razor blade. Just watch your angle and don't press too hard. Just skim it at an angle and it'll cut the algae right off.

I use a clean razor blade all the time too - it's a really good way to get the tough algae off. just be careful around the joints of the glass so you don't cut the molding at all.

I used a shaver and it sucked only removed some hair algae. then a d.a.r.e ruller came to my rescue and I removed a lot of aglae without even one scratch on the glass!
