Sharing is caring. We keep on sharing our goodies with our closed ones, very frequently with our best of friends. But have you ever realised the risks involved in that? Actually, sharing of some exclusives can push you into problems. Have a look at these 10 things you should never share with your friends if you wanna keep up your hygiene standards!
Sharing of soap might be harmful. Daily used body soaps contain fungal germs that increase with bodily contact. This way it keeps on transmitting diseases when you share. So, beware before soap sharing, not matter how much you love them.
Do you wash and dry towels after use? Yup, this is important! According to Medical Research, towels are the best places for bacteria to breed. Weird yet true.! Especially when the towels are regularly wet for hours. You don’t know what they might reveal!
Continuous Discharge Certificate (CDC) says No to sharing of toothbrushes, especially if you are having dental problems. Bleeding of gums can give birth to bacteria and even in normal cases, bristles do bear certain germs and therefore, should not be shared. Keep that in mind.
Toothpaste too bear germs when it comes in contact with the bristles of the toothbrush. The bacteria in the brush get transmitted and spreads in the paste. Be careful you share the next time. It’s absolutely safe if you keep the tube away from the bristles! Now come on, do the happy dance!
You will be shocked to know that even sharing of earnings can prove unhygienic! A regular cleaning of it is recommended after each time you use it. Bleeding of the ear can be infectious if you wear something without washing the area. Alcohol act as best cleansers for these accessories.
Do share love but not drinks! Saliva transmits germs. Research have shown that people infected with cold, throat sores and other diseases have been a caused by this.
Sharing of razors can cost you life! Yes, this is indeed true! When you shave you might get cuts and hence you bleed. This increases greater chances of blood-borne diseases like Hepatitis as well as HIV too though not blood borne. Besides, razors do contain dead skin cells and bacteria after a shave. And then there’s the risk of STDs!
Antiperspirants or body deos are more likely to cause infection if they come in direct contact with the body. Perspiration releases germs that stick to the body. So when you apply the deo stick there again… Shocking! I know!
Say NO to make up if you are using someone else’s. You know… The same thing. Infection from them travels to you. Eye infections, mouth infections and some people have lice… on eyelashes! Trust me, they do!
Sharing of hair brushes have the higher chances of scalp itching, infection and even lice! You are not sure whether the hair brush is cleaned regularly or the person who had used it before had any hair problems. So…
Hygiene comes first even though you care. So, think twice before you share your goodies with your friends. It can cost you much than only a product..!
Share this post of your care. It will help you to get rid of that annoying friend who keeps borrowing your stuff!
