Dirty Hotel Rooms

So the CBC decided to check hotel rooms for contaminants, and discovered that comforters were the dirtiest, both for microbes and 'stains'. Faucets were just as dirty, and a more expensive room was not necessarily more sanitary.

How many couples staying in rooms don't "contribute" to the filth, and where's that black light when you need it?

The sheets are washed, but the comforters are not. Maybe they should be washed after each guest too.

Or at least a use a comforter cover that is changed after each guest. If they change the pillow cases, change the comforter cover as well.

I've taken to carrying alcohol wipes with me and I usually wipe down the toilet, the light switch near the door, the phone and the remote. I'll add the tap to the list -- I hadn't thought of that one. I'm not a germaphobe by any stretch, but if I'm staying in a room that thousands of people have before me, I'd rather not pick up an unwanted gift from them if I can avoid it.

I usually just take the comforter out every time because of this. If it's winter and it gets cold, I just bring extra clothes. Didn't think the faucet was that bad, though. I figured they'd spray it with some anti-bacterial.

Egads, some disgusting articles to read for sure. I thought I was safe from bed bugs staying at relatively upscale and new hotels but alas, I am now going to bring a spray or wipes with me too.

Good suggestion about the comforter (probably the xtra blankets are safe).
