    I don’t see anything wrong with using hair bands off the sidewalk. You can wash it if it makes you feel better about it. Can’t be much grosser than the ones I find around the house, such as under the refrigerator where the cat pushed it, all covered in dust and dirt. I reuse those after washing them in soap and water. So 1 vote for Kayla!

    Go Kayla, it’s always better to recycle.

  4. Was it and you’re good to go. Sorry Spencer

  5. Yeah…sorry I’m with spencer too. I have a fear of lice, I wouldn’t even let my husband buy a hat at the thrift store for fear he would get lice & give them to me! I get this from my mother, the first grade teacher, who would make the nurse check her head every day when lice were going around at school. -Kristie

    Waste not, want not…I pick up anything usable. Was germaphobic in the past (OCD), but got 2 $85 pairs of SAS shoes at a thrift store for $1 each (one pair brand new)…just couldn’t pass on that deal. So, I figure if I can wear someone elses’s shoes, I can surely wear their hair bands!

    I agree with the lice argument. I would not wear a hairband that had been worn by a stranger. I suppose you could wash it, but to me, it’s almost like washing someone else’s underwear and then wearing it. I love to save money and to invest it in Charles Schwab and Vanguard funds, but picking up an inexpensive, used hairband off the ground is not something that I would do.

    […] I saw a hair-tie on the ground and did NOT pick it up.  The overall consensus of my picking-hair-ties-off-the-ground post is that Spencer rules, I drool, and that picking up hair ties is gross.  I should specify, […]
