12 other uses for condoms

31 March 2016, 22:36

Abuja- What other uses could condoms have? We invited our readers to send us their ideas via the Health24 Facebook page and to our email address, and this is what came up:

1. To protect your cellphone from getting wet when you’re out and it’s raining or hiking
2. Filled with ice and frozen to use as ice packs in boxing
3. For cleaning CDs
4. As a slingshot
5. As water balloons or to store water
6. To polish your boots and shoes
7. Over the barrel of a rifle when it’s raining – you don’t even have to take it off to shoot
8. To prevent bait from washing off the hook while trawling for fish. Simply pull the condom over the bait after it’s attached to the hook. Cut the ends of and voila!
9. The lubricant is great for dry hair
10. When swimming, used as a condom to protect against small catfish called candiru that are attracted to urine and blood (and like to travel up the urethra).
10. To smuggle drugs inside the body
11. Archaeologists use them to collect water samples from stalactites for research (see pic above)
12. To protect microphones in transit (using non-lubricated ones)
