Taking the phone to the toilet
Most of us take our phones while we go to the toilet. Yes, we lead a busy life but that does not imply that we will carry our mobile phones even to the toilet. Toilet seats are the most infected area and we should never use our mobile phones there.
Washing hands with a soap bar
We must never wash our hands with a soap bar. Always use liquid soap. Soap bar already possesses a lot of germs and bacteria which get transferred to our body when we use it.
Using someone else’s towel
One must never share a towel with someone else. Using the same towel which other person uses, leads to the spread of infection. You may not know the other person might have some skin disease or infection. Thus, keep your towel separately.
Many people have this habit of chewing pen and other plastic things. We must note that these things are not clean and are made up of chemicals. Chewing these things lead to infection and spread of germs to the body.
Opening things with your teeth
This is one of the most common practice most of us do. Opening a packet with our teeth or cutting the tape with teeth can lead to the spread of infection. One must use scissors to prevent the spread of infection through the mouth.
