-The moist environment that’s created after you take a shower plus the heat from the hairdryer equals a nasty breeding ground for all those bacteria to multiply.
-Shampooing services are expensive, so hotels save money by deep-cleaning the carpets less often.
-Staff may wipe the surface of the bedside table, but this is yet one more thing that’ll easily get overlooked.
-Even in four-star hotels the bathroom counters contain the most CFU, or colony-forming units, of bacteria.

-The cleaners don’t have dish soap on their carts, so the glasses usually just get a quick rinse with hot water.
-The bedspread is among the top 11 dirtiest things in your room.
-Since people throw them off the bed before going to sleep, decorative pillows are home to numerous bacteria.
-The sofa collects germs from people’s suitcases, shoes, and anything else guests might toss on it.
-Researchers found that in some 3-star hotels, the drapes only got a mere dusting just once a month.
