How inventive Cubans are hunting expensive fish using condoms. Dozens of men can be found “balloon fishing” along the Havana seawall at night, using their homemade floats to carry their lines as far as 900 feet into the coastal waters.
Love sipping wine? Condoms are used to make it . Yes you read it right. Estevez (the master brain behind using condoms in wineries) and his family fill the glass jugs with grapes, ginger and hibiscus, then slip a condom over each glass neck to start the process of fermentation. The condoms slowly inflate as the fruity mix ferments and produces gases. When the contraceptive is fully inflated, they know that the fermentation is done and the wine is ready to serve.
3As a water Container
including condoms in survival kits is not a new idea. They make amazing compact water containers that can hold as much as 2 liters of water if handled properly. They are, after all, designed to be water tight. The elasticity of latex condoms is SHOCKING.
Nowadays, condoms are also used to display dress designs on dummy models. Condoms are used in the most innovative manner to create a funky dress or a quirky style.

Yes! You read that right! Apparently, the lubricant on condoms can help you get a clear skin by letting you get rid of acne. Infact, Cambodian sex workers often use condoms to clean up their acne.
