This one seems like a no-brainer, but apparently, people reuse condoms often enough for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to provide a reminder not to do it.

The CDC STD Twitter account tweeted on July 23, warning people not to wash or reuse condoms. 

“We say it because people do it: Don’t wash or reuse #condoms! Use a fresh one for each #sex act,” the CDC tweeted. 

The CDC provides other dos and don’ts for safe condom use on its website.
