Disposable wet shave razors can harbour up to five million bugs, tests by anti-bacterial technology specialists Microban Europe found.

"Because of heat and moisture, bathrooms are ideal breeding grounds," the Daily Express quoted Microban's Paul McDonnell as saying.

Bacterial infection can irritate hair follicles on the face and legs and result in shaving rashes.
