Not sharing one's items with roommates

Q: I live in a shared apartment with 5 other men. Is it okay to not share my things with my roommates if they don't care for their own things in use.

For example, they don't wash their blankets and use mine as I try to keep my blanket clean and washed. Should I compromise my health and cleanliness or first take care of my basic needs and then share if I can. Please tell me as I don't want to be greedy in Allah's sight.

A: If it is your personal items then they do not have the right to use it without your permission.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
