Introduction:Well all need to save money but some things are better new.
You never know what lurks inside a used mattress. A used mattress has conformed to the body shape of the previous owner and it could hurt you back not mention bacteria. Bed bugs like to hide in them as well.
Wearing old shoes can hurt your feet due to being the wrong size. Like mattresses, they get conformed to the previous owner's foot shape and you put yourself at risk for warts..
It is not easy to access the damage of used car seats and booster seats right away. Some of them have been involved in car accidents. If you must get used, make certain it is from someone you know.
Seriously, who want to buy used cosmetics though they are sold at auction sites? It is a good way to get nail fungus and cold sores. There are plenty of stores that sell cosmetic that work as well as the expensive counterparts.
All sorts of harmful substances can be hidden in used costume jewelry like nickel and lead. This caused a huge recall back in 2004 which led to stricter testing. If you buy older pieces that don't undergo strict testing, they could be contaminated.
If you know where the items are coming from, you shouldn't have a problem, Otherwise, buy these items new when possible.
These were really good advice for consumer goods. Mostly consumers do not think about this while purchasing.
You make a lot of good points. H5
