So you think your hotel room is clean?

Wouldn't it be nice if you could count on your hotel room being spotlessly clean?

The rug might be vacuumed thoroughly and the shower stall is clean. Toilet looks clean too. But what can't you see?

Let's start with the bedspread. Most hotels do not wash the bedspread in between guests. So grab that bedspread, tear it off the bed, dump it in the corner and don't touch it or look at it for the rest of your stay.

Make sure you travel with antiseptic wipes. Why? YUCK to the TV remote and the telephone handset. Wipe them both down thoroughly with your antiseptic wipes before using them.

If you've got plastic sealed glasses in the bathroom, consider yourself lucky. Maids have been caught, on video, simply wiping out used glasses and replacing them for the next guest. UGH! If you've got real glasses, wash them and then let them sit under the hot running water for about 3 minutes.

There are some things, though, like athlete's foot fungus, that the cleaning staff can't do anything about no matter how hard they might try. Advice: Never go barefoot in a hotel room. And in the shower, wear shower slippers.
