 Disposable Shave Razors may Contain as Many as 5 Million Bacteria
Disposable razors are a breeding ground for millions of bacteria which puts the health of a person at risk every time they shave.

Experts have warned, that men removing stubble every morning and women smoothing their legs are in danger from bacteria on blades.


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.
