Traveling light is the best way to travel, but it isn’t easy to do. At least you don’t have to lug a huge hairdryer with you when you are staying at a hotel, right? WRONG! A recent undercover investigation found that one of the dirtiest and germiest items in a hotel room – even the 5 star ones – is the hairdryer.
Hairdryers, ice buckets and room service menus are often overlooked when it comes to cleaning, making them some of the nastiest, most bacteria-ridden items in your hotel room. If lugging your hair dryer isn’t an option – buy some disinfecting wipes to pack in your bag so you can give the hairdryer a good cleaning before using it. (Woman's Day)
