Travel Health: Dirty Hotel Glasses, Part 2
Fellow blogger John Deiner wrote about a hidden-camera report on dirty hotel drinking glasses a few weeks ago, and most folks were duly repulsed. Now, an even more recent disgusting report has reared its germ-studded head.
Earlier this week, ABC's "Good Morning America" aired a report showing just how dirty those glasses can be. Looks like hidden cameras caught cleaning people using dirty towels, mildew-removing spray or just a rinse with cold water to clean out used drinking glasses between guests.
Regulations require that hotels sanitize drinking glasses with either a run through a dishwasher or a thorough scrub in a "three-compartment sink," whatever that means. If you weren't grossed out by the video we spotlighted a few weeks ago, this time you will be.
Unless, you know, you usually wipe out your glasses with a towel you used to wipe the bathroom floor.
What do you think? Take a look and let us know: Now will you bring your own drinking glasses to hotels?
