You can always be a good friend and ease things for your pal in need but remember not to put your life at risk by lending the things you are not supposed to lend.

We all own some personal things and as the name suggests only you should use them, for they contain a huge amount of bacteria that grows on your skin and can be harmful to others.

Below are some of the most dangerous things you shouldn’t lend to others:

1. The Earphones

Every individual has a unique bacterial flora balance in earwax and when you share your Earphones with your friend this balance gets disrupted. You are sure to provoke an ear infection by sharing Earphones.

2. Deodorants

It is the bacteria which cause the smell of sweat and that’s what we try to neutralize it by using Deodorants. But your friend can get infected if they use your deodorant which normally comes in contact with your skin.

3. Lipstick and Lip Gloss

You friend might have left her makeup set at your home and would not mind if you use it. But should you do that? Never, the reason being the diseases like herpes can be transmitted easily by sharing lipstick or lip gloss. The virus gets mixed with the mouth’s mucous membrane and saliva and can affect you badly. Well, the same goes for other cosmetics, creams, and eww.. but toothbrush as well.

4. Towels

Towels absorb maximum liquid from your body surface and keep you healthy. But they are breeding grounds for mold, bacteria, and fungi due to the increased humidity inside the bathroom.

5. Shoes

When guests come home, it is good and natural to offer them slippers which are specific for inside the home use only. Wearing shoes at times causes sweating and create perfect breeding conditions for bacteria.
