SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – Yes, people actually do this.
Condoms are known to help protect you and your sexual partners against sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancies as long as they are used properly.
Washing and/or reusing condoms does not fall under that category.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently tweeted a reminder to the general public.
“We say it because people do it: Don’t wash or reuse #condoms! Use a fresh one for each #sex act,” the CDC tweeted.
