Just one more thing to freak me out!

Ever since I found someone else's underwear in my hotel room bed I have been creeped out by these places. This video does nothing to help the situation but it's better to know.

Oh yikes!! I sometimes wonder too! And what about those which clean the wash basin with the guest's toothbrush!? I know of some hotels which use plastic cups in the bathrooms they can just throw away. GAP travels so much that I have to remind himto take precautions.

I've read articles about the uncleanliness of the bedspreads in your hotel room (rarely ever washed - think about sleeping with other peoples' "parts" against you) and the carpets, etc., but I haven't thought about the possibility of drinking glasses being washed and dried with a washcloth that I may have used on my various body parts!

Camping. Yep! That's the answer!

Mary, since I was gone when Michael got home, I couldn't say "YIPPPEEE! before now. Sounds like you guys overcame quite the challenges to get him there.

And your kitchen: Las paredes son magníficos.

I watched this with out the sound from work and was truley disgusted. The underwear story is worse I think. I hope I don't have to stay in a hotel anytime soon. Thanks for the info

You should see the videos on sheets! They don't always change them between guests, and they aren't washed effectively anyway.

The underwear you found, Mary, wasn't it blue with grey stipes by any chance?
I will never touch a hotel glass again!

Yikes, I guess it's better to know...

but what in the hell do these hotels charge the big bucks for, if they're not going to clean the damned room between guests???

I will never travel without lysol, rubber gloves, and my own linens and glassware again. And maybe place hidden cameras throughout the hotel room while I'm at it...

I would need a hazmat suit....gloves are NOT enough....yuck...I hate hotels....I always bring my own sheets to put on top - my son says this means I am "anal"....but one funky rash is ENOUGH....

I would say thank you.....but I am still itchy.....

Yikes! And I'm in a hotel in Ottawa right now... Think I'll wash the glasses right away.

By the way, don't sit on the bedspreads either, that's another story.

Horror! This confirms the nastiness.

Our friend's girlfriend is a hotel executive. He said NEVER, EVER use the bedspread(fold it up and put it in the closet). NEVER, EVER go barefoot. NEVER, EVER use the telephone w/out wiping it down with rubbing alcohol first.

My wife and I put a mattress down in the floor when our daughter was little.

One night we did that, and between the mattresses were some very explicit sex books. The photographs depicted things I would think would cause you great pain and/or hospitalization. Amazing stuff.

Well I think we all freaked each other out sufficiently! I'm not sure how any of us will get through a night spent at a hotel again. Let's move on shall we?

(Cream you crack me up.)

Mary, do you know how much time I spend in hotels??????? I spent all last summer, 3 1/2 months, in hotels!

Fortunately for me, the scotch probably killed all the germs...sigh...
