Used Personal Items
This includes contact lenses, Diva cups and sex toys. All products of a bodily nature contain inherent risks, even if they have been properly sanitized (boiled or put through the dishwasher).

The risk of transmission of any disease may be small but it does exist and should to be taken into account.
Similarly, even if sanitized, makeup can carry diseases such as herpes and pink eye/conjunctivitis (especially when liquid or cream). Please be aware of the risks involving in the trading of makeup.
Trade safe, Bunz!
