We’re all aware that borrowing another person’s comb or toothbrush is never a good idea. However, there are many additional personal items that we discuss with people on occasion but should not.
This article has compiled a list of objects that can’t have more than one owner today. We’ll also show you how to keep them clean and in good shape.
8. Lip gloss and lipstick
Your companion has forgotten to bring her makeup kit with her. Isn’t it fine if you offer her your lipstick? That is not something you should do. Herpes and other diseases can easily be spread by sharing lipstick or lip gloss.
The virus can be present in the mouth’s mucous membrane and saliva even if the afflicted person does not have a visible rash. There is currently no cure for herpes that is 100 percent effective.
A. Stop using the contaminated lipstick if the virus has appeared. After the rash has faded, it’s a good idea to invest in a fresh makeup set to avoid the sickness reappearing. Using a clean cloth, remove the top layer of lipstick on a regular basis to avoid the collection of dirt and bacteria.
Each person’s earwax has a different bacterial flora balance. We risk upsetting this balance if we share earbuds with a friend. As a result, an ear infection may develop.
A. Using a stick or a swab drenched in hydrogen peroxide, clean earwax from the surface of earbuds. To avoid damaging the speakers, don’t use too much liquid. Placing the pads in an alcohol solution will disinfect them. Clean the earbuds at least once a week if they are used often.
6. Hair curlers and clips
The majority of individuals are aware that lending your comb to someone else is a poor idea. All hair items that come into touch with the scalp are subject to the same rules! Borrowed headbands, combs, scrunchies, or curlers can readily spread fungus and lice.
A. Depending on how often you use them, soft scrunchies should be laundered every few weeks. Soapy water can be used to clean curlers and metal hair clips. After that, make sure they’re completely dry.
Even with antibacterial deodorants, bacteria may be present on surfaces that come into touch with the skin. After all, it’s the bacteria that generate the perspiration odor that we’re attempting to eliminate.
A. Apply deodorant as soon as you get out of the shower, while your skin is still clean. Wipe your armpits with a damp tissue first if you need to refresh them during the day.
The basic purpose of a towel is to absorb as much liquid as possible from your body’s surface. That’s why, even if you’re completely healthy, the damp fabric of your towel becomes a great breeding ground for mold, germs, and fungi as the humidity inside the bathroom rises.
A. Towels should be changed every 3-4 days, according to hygiene experts. Instead of leaving your towels in the bathroom, hang them to dry on the balcony or in a damp-free location. After each usage, make sure your towels are completely dry, and iron them after washing. PROCEED TO READ MORE>>>>>>
