I see several people have asked this or similar question. I’ve read one available answer and am still confused, and I continually run up against this des vs les.
Example: Men use razors to shave. = LES hommes utilisent DES rasoirs pour se raser.
It is LES hommes because it’s referring to men in general. Why is it not LES rasoirs? Isn’t it referring to razors in general?
Thank you for any help.
