I used daily contacts all last year and it was fine, just make sure you give you hands a good wash before and dont attempt put them in if there is a lot of dust storm going on.

There are also "give one take one" boxes around town. You can drop things in there like lighters, lip balm, a tampon, small tube of lotion, some analgesic, earplugs, etc. Those little boxes can sometimes save someone's burn. Adopt one.
