Earphones

Sharing other people’s earphones can lead to a bacterial growth in the ears and this risk increases if you use them during a workout, additional heat and moisture contribute to their development. Moreover, if you share headphones, be ready for bacteria like streptococcus and staphylococcus to get into the ear and cause infections, boils, and pustules. If you still want to share this accessory with someone or borrow it, wipe the headphones with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol for the purpose of killing the germs.

Nail clippers

Although we're unable to see it but there is a huge amount of bacteria, viruses, and fungal microorganisms on the human fingers and nails. So, ordinary nail clippers can become a vector of infections. Thus, the use of another person’s nail clipper increases the risk of fungal diseases.

Earrings

The ear of a human being has many blood vessels and that’s why it is very easy to become infected with blood-borne diseases simply by wearing a friend’s earrings. Wipe the earrings with alcohol the next time you want to borrow them.

Lip balm

There are blood vessels under the surface of the lips which are ready to carry everything that you put on this part of the face into the bloodstream or even microbes. The herpes virus can be transmitted from one person to another when sharing a balm or lipstick, even if the carrier has no visible symptoms of the disease.

Ball deodorant

They can seriously carry serious infections, especially if the bacteria gets into small wounds after shaving. Fragrant deodorants only mask the smell and don’t prevent the multiplication of bacteria. So, always choose deodorants with antibacterial ingredients and avoid sharing them, even with your family.

Bar soap

When we us the soap in the bathroom, microorganisms covers it after each use, both harmless microbes and dangerous viruses. Worst of all is when the soap lies in a wet soap dish, moisture creates an ideal environment for the growth of bacteria, fungi, and viruses. You can reduce the risk of infection by using liquid soap from a dispenser.

Towels

They're also a good breeding ground for germs, especially when it's placed in a bathroom with high humidity. If your towel smells musty, it means that there is a development of mold and bacteria. Such a towel can infect its owner with fungal infections and bacteria that cause rashes, acne, and conjunctivitis. Eliminate this danger by washing your towel after 4-5 uses and always let it dry completely.

Makeup brushes

Makeup products that come into contact with body fluids such as tears, nasal mucosa, saliva, blood, or pus acne should never be shared. In simple terms it means that it’s better not to share eyeliner, eyeshadow, mascara, concealer, makeup base, lipstick, and rouge. Additionally, don’t give anyone your makeup brushes and never use samplers in the cosmetic stores.

Loofahs
