The following is a repost from Extra Ordinary Thing Blog and, if true, is quite alarming

Used Condoms Reborn As Hair/Rubber Bands

Soiled condoms *HORF* are being recycled into hair bands and rubber bands in China.

“There are a lot of bacteria and viruses on the rubber bands and hair ties made from used condoms,” a dermatologist at the Guangzhou Hospital of Armed Police, who asked to be identified by his surname Dong, told the local paper.

“People could be infected with AIDS, warts or other diseases if they hold the rubber bands or strings in their mouths while weaving their hair into plaits or buns.”

  3. If they were to recycle used hairbands into condoms, do you think they would sell? By the way Luli, the hairbands sold in Australia – being so cheap – would be no different

  4. I think we should all protest this by refusing to use condoms.

  5. Well, you and I would make no dent on the national economy if we protested Ray. It’s been so long … they cost 10 cents don’t they?
