Travel Health: Hotel Drinking Glasses
Okay, I'm switching to plastic.
You ever wonder how clean those hotel glasses are in hotel rooms? Well, according to an Atlanta TV station that mounted an undercover investigation last fall, not very. The station hid a camera in various hotel rooms around town, and used drinking glasses were set out in plain view. For the most part, maids barely cleaned the glasses -- one used mystery cleaner, another simply ran water in them and put them back on the sink, another one used a dirty washcloth to clean them out.
The health experts they spoke to were similarly appalled, checking off a list of maladies you could catch from the dirty glasses, including staph.
Then tell us: Do you use those glasses in hotel rooms? Will you continue?
