Ear buds, batteries in the refrigerator, toothpaste on herpes, daily washing your hair, drinking alcohol to get warm… and many more things. Sound familiar? We believe that your answer is “YES”. These are the things that we use daily, and still make mistakes.
These are the most common myths about the products they use every day.
Although many people use them every day to clean the earwax, the fact is that this habit causes the completely opposite effect. This way if the ear buds penetrate deeper into the ear can lead to damage to the eardrum.
Batteries in refrigerator
Surely you’ve heard that you can keep the battery life if you put them in the fridge. But this is nonsense. Manufacturers of batteries actually suggest you do not do that, because that way because of condensation, the refrigerator can shorten their life.
Toothpaste – for herpes
Herpes will disappear if you apply toothpaste on it. No, this is not true; in this way you will only dry and irritate the skin.
Washing your hair every day
This is one of the biggest mistakes that people often do. Frequent use of the shampoo actually dries the hair, leading to the creation of dandruff.
Alcohol in cooking
While cooking all the alcohol evaporates. No, that’s not true! Although with cooking the alcohol decreases, but the fact is that something always remains. After two and a half hours cooking the percentage of alcohol is about 5%, so there is no danger of getting drunk.
If you swallow a chewing gum…
If you ever swallowed a chewing gum, it will stay in you for seven years?! Sure you have heard this many times, but it is a common misconception. Although the chewing gum takes longer to fall apart, it will remain in the body up to seven days.
Coffee is a diuretic
Although caffeine has a mild diuretic effect, it is not as many people think. The fact is that coffee acts as water – the more you drink, the more you want to drink.
Alcohol warms up the body
It is not true! The feeling of warmth is actually a consequence of the change in the blood, because when you drink the blood vessels dilate.
