What's on the "No Touchy" list at Hotels?

A TikToker went on her app and started listing things that you should NEVER TOUCH when you go to hotel rooms.

She used to work for a hotel and said she's "SEEN THINGS" (yikes) and that "not all hotels are disgusting." That said, what should be on your "no touchy" list?

  • The coffee pot or any of the glassware – she explains that housekeeping, “just rinses these things out in the bathroom sink and dries them off with the same rag that they used to clean the rest of the room with.”
  • The ice bucket – she says people use them as “water dishes for their pets and whatnot,” and she's seen guests do “much worse things” to them, noting, “I don’t even want to talk about that.”
  • Hotel bedspreads – she insists she would “never, ever, ever” touch them, telling folks to take them off the bed “the minute you walk in there.” She claims “they only get washed once a year, if that, unless there is a visible stain on them,” adding, “So unless someone has bled, puked, pissed, s- -t on them, they do not get washed for an entire year.”

That tracks.

If you're not going to a hotel equipped with a can of Lysol/Microban/whatever (even PRE-Pandemic), what are you doing? Even if you have to grab a bottle just to spray down everything, let it breathe and then come back later to it. That's my travel tip for you!
