Here are a few tips for how to look after condoms and your health:

  • Store condoms in a dry, cool place—away from direct sunlight, fluorescent light, heat or moisture.
  • Always check the use-by date.
  • Take care when opening the packed—you might tear or damage the condom, especially if you have long fingernails or are wearing jewellery.
  • Do not use your teeth to open the packet.
  • Practise opening packs and getting the condom the right side up before you are on the job.
  • Try not to use clients’ condoms—they might be old or damaged.
  • Condoms come in different shapes and sizes. So do clients, so make sure you have a range of condoms with you.
