LIST OF ITEMS YOU SHOULD NEVER SHARE WITH ANYONE AND WHY

Sharing is caring but at times it’s best not to love your neighbor that much to share certain personal items, no matter how much you love them, either a best friend, a lover, or a family member it’s best you keep them for yourself to avoid serious health issues.

1 SLIPPERS

Slippers are a basic courtesy to offer to your guests. Obviously, when someone has travelled a distance to meet you, the last thing you expect them to carry is bathroom slippers. However, slippers are the breeding ground for fungus. Therefore, it is better to give your guests a new pair or a pair that you don’t use

2 Bar soaps

No one ever thinks sharing a bar soap with someone who’s too lazy to run out and get one for themself is dangerous because soaps are supposed to clean themselves, right?

Except they really don’t.

The accumulation of fungi, bacteria and possibly yeast on bar soaps counters the myth that they self-clean and are totally safe to share with others.

Bar soaps have no problem with retaining organisms from your skin, like pathogens that could cause infections and illnesses when you share with others.

3 Towels

This is an obvious one, but it seems to be common practice nonetheless.

Other than for the very obvious reason that sharing towels with anyone is just achingly gross, it could get you infected with bacteria and fungus because towels are a breeding ground for germs.

4 Toothbrush

Again, hard to understand why anyone wants to share a toothbrush seeing as it goes into one of your most very private parts, but it happens quite a lot.

The bristles on toothbrushes retain bacteria, and crossbreeding your own bacteria with someone else’s could lead to the births of very unfortunate, but probably well-deserved, pathogens that can result in common cold or strep.

5 Earrings

With their sharp ends, earrings are prone to the occasional pricks of the skin and can very easily transfer any sort of blood-borne disease you can imagine if two people share it indiscriminately.

6 DEODORANTS AND ROLL-ONS

Deodorant and roll-on surfaces may contain bacteria when it comes in contact with your skin. Lending it to someone can result in transmission of this bacteria
