Places in the room that are (almost) never cleaned. Check
Most often, hotel staff do not have time for teapots, coffee makers, cups and glasses. They are not washed properly, but simply rinsed with water and, at best, wiped with a towel (at worst, with a dust cloth used to wipe the furniture in the room). And guests do not always use these containers for their intended purpose: for example, they boil sausages or dumplings in a kettle, and the most creative ones even manage to boil socks. “The thing that makes me most disgusted is the coffee maker. She looks clean, but who knows what previous guests did to her before you?” – says the manager of one of the Chicago hotels Ken. Glasses in the bathroom are also washed very rarely, before you put your toothbrush in there, you should wash them thoroughly with soap and water.

1. Remote controls and switches
Door handles, remote controls, switches and phone handsets are real breeding grounds for germs: they are most often touched and least wiped. According to American scientists from the University of Houston, the TV remote control is the dirtiest thing in a hotel room: there are more pathogenic bacteria on its surface than on a toilet seat. The desk lamp switch on the bedside table is no cleaner, so it's best to wipe these items with antibacterial wipes before use.
