  1. 1. THE GERMOPHOBE'S GUIDE TO SURVIVING A HOTEL ROOM It's Going To Be OK
  2. 2. We thought we would take advantage of all the accumulated wisdom & clean quirks and share them WE HAVE A GERMOPHOBE ON OUR TEAM That's not our germophobe, he's shy too.. but that's pretty much what he looks like everywhere we take him. Photo Credit: Ryan McGuire
  3. 3. EVERYTHING THAT YOU MAY BE WORRIED ABOUT CAN BE DEALT WITH Don't worry
  4. 4. WASH BEFORE USE The mugs, glasses and cutlery in the room aren't usually taken away to be sanitised in a dishwasher. They get quickly rinsed in your bathroom sink or just brought to a shine using furniture polish. Yes, that means, wash them yourself. Or bring your own if you are going full terrified.
  5. 5. PUT AWAY YOUR TOILETRIES Unless you would like them to be moved around by the same gloves that were just holding the toilet brush.
  6. 6. COVER UP A lot of stuff gets on the furniture, fecal bacteria is the most abundant thing found on a hotel sofa. so yeah, cover up your furniture if you want to feel squeaky clean.
  7. 7. Toilet seat & Flush Taps Door handles Telephone Light Switches Table Tops Anything you touch or lay your stuff on Remember to sanitise
  8. 8. CHECK BEFORE USE Hotel towels are used for all sorts of things including mopping up toilet spills... Always check the full towel in the light to make sure you got a clean one. Don't be shy about calling down for a new one if you feel unsure about the quality. Or just carry your own.
  9. 9. LOOK CLOSELYCheck the sheets before you slide in.. For Stains & hair and bed bugs, if you're bothered by that kind of thing. Also quit lying on the unwashable parts like the cover. Shoes, suitcases and tons of other things have been on there.
  10. 10. THE DIRTIEST THING? All manner of yucky has been found on remotes including MRSA which is pretty worrying. This is where plastic sandwich bags come in handy, pack 'em for your travels and toss that remote in one and seal it. the remote  buttons stay visible and you stay germ free.
