5 Things You Should Not Share, Even With Your Siblings

Borrowing someone's comb or toothbrush is something that we are all well aware of being a bad idea. While we do share personal items with others on occasion, there are many more that we should avoid discussing at all.

A list of things that can only be owned by one person has been prepared for this page. Also covered will be how to maintain them clean and in good condition.

5. Lip gloss and lipstick

She hasn't remembered to bring her cosmetics kit with her on this trip. Doesn't it seem sense that you'd want to share your lipstick with her? What you are about to do is not appropriate. Using the same lipstick or lip gloss several times can easily spread herpes and other illnesses.

Even if a person does not have a visible rash, the virus can be found in the mucous membranes of the mouth and in their saliva. A cure for herpes that is 100 percent successful does not exist as of this writing.

If the virus has been detected, stop using the infected lipstick. As soon as the rash has disappeared, you should consider investing in a new cosmetics kit to stop the illness from resurfacing. Make frequent removal of the top layer of lipstick with a clean cloth to avoid the buildup of dirt and germs on the lips.

4. Hair curlers and clips

It is well understood that lending your comb to someone else is a bad idea by the vast majority of people. There are the same restrictions for all hair products that come into contact with the scalp. Lice and fungus may easily be transferred by using borrowed headbands, combs, scrunchies, or curlers.

A. Soft scrunchies should be washed every several weeks, depending on how frequently you use them. CURLERS AND METAL HAIR CLIPS CAN BE CLEANED WITH SOAP AND WATER Afterwards, check to be if they're totally dry before continuing.

3. Deodorants

The presence of germs on surfaces that come into contact with the skin may persist even when antibacterial deodorants are used. As a matter of fact, we're trying to remove germs that are responsible for the sweat odour.

A. Apply deodorant as soon as you get out of the shower, when your skin is still moist and fresh. B. If you need to refresh your armpits during the day, wipe them with a moist cloth first.

2. Towels

In its most basic form, a towel's job is to absorb as much liquid as possible off the surface of your body. When a result, even if you're in perfect health, the moist fabric of your towel provides a perfect breeding ground for mould, bacteria, and fungus as the humidity level in the bathroom climbs higher.

A. According to hygiene experts, towels should be replaced every 3-4 days. Place your towels on the balcony or anywhere else where they won't get wet instead of leaving them in the bathroom to air dry overnight. Before and after each use, check to see that your towels are totally dry. After washing, iron your towels to keep them looking their best.

1. Accessory for skin care

Keeping facial washing brushes, massage rollers, and specialised sponges clean looks to be a straightforward task. They, on the other hand, collect tiny pieces of skin that contain germs as they brush against each other. As a result, acne and flaky skin on the face may appear.

After each usage, gently wash the attachments in warm soapy water to remove any remaining residue. Every 2-3 months, it's also a good idea to change them.
