CDC warns people not to wash reuse condoms

According to WGME, the Centers For Disease Control have a message on their twitter reminding people NOT to wash and reuse condoms.

They are urging Americans to stop re-using condoms. Using male and female condoms correctly, every time, can also help prevent pregnancy. However, after reports that people were misusing condoms by washing and reusing them, the CDC wanted to remind the public that condoms are a one and done kind of device.

Research has found that as many as three percent of people have tried to reuse condoms, and half us have put a condom on too late or removed it too soon, the Daily Mail said.

The CDC also issued some more condom-related advice in a second tweet.

"Soap and water won't kill all of the tiny microorganisms on or inside the condom, and it can only make the latex more prone to tear", she said.

"Condoms don't last forever", the organization tweeted. "Be sure and check the expiration date before using them!"

The effectiveness of condoms, however, is eliminated after the first use.
