The 5 Dirtiest Things in Your Hotel Room
Part of the joy of vacationing is getting to stay in a hotel.Someone else tidies up,makes the bed,so on and so forth.Except,erm,sometimes the cleaning isn't exactly as clean as you'd expect it to be.Just in time for summer getaway season,the folks at Popsugar took a look at the average hotel room and detailed the filthiest spots .There are some unexpected finds and housekeeping fails that are impossible to excuse,but we don't want to totally ruin your vacay.(Promise!) Indulge your wanderlust,but maybe pack some antibacterial wipes,'k??
Without further ado,these are the dirtiest spots in your hotel room:
1.Pillowcases A Today show hotel investigation saw maids changing the bed sheets,but only giving the pillows a brush and fluff,leaving the same pillowcases on for new guests.
2.TV remote If you forget about cleaning your own remote at home,well,the hotel's maids probably do too.
3.Comforter Top layers aren't cleaned nearly as often as sheets (maybe four times a year,, per CNN ),so avoid getting too snuggly.
4.Glasses and mugs Two gross situations could be happening here.Housekeeping staff could rinse and dry cups without actually washing them,or they could disinfect—with a solution marked with a"do not drink"label.
5.Phone Similar to the remote,the telephone can escape sanitizing procedures.The Today show sleuthing found that receivers could be three times as nasty as they should be.
