Things You Should Never Buy Used

We’re all about finding great deals on stuff, but sometimes drawing the line between secondhand and new can be tricky. Some items like tables, art, and gym equipment — are more than worthy of a second life, while others are best left alone after use. Here are some possible things you should not buy used. (1) Worn out cookware, pots or pans with scratched and worn non-stick surfaces are definitely not a good idea. (2) Child Car seats, most car seats have an actual expiration date. (3)Mattresses, take into account the possibility of bed bugs and dust mites—not to mention dead skin and bodily fluids. (4) Makeup, don’t purchase used hand-me-down cosmetics. (5) Shoes, you are potentially inheriting old foot fungus, sweat, and bacteria and mold. (6) Swimsuits or any undergarments, just think where they’ve been……. Ed
