Before you place a suitcase on your bed, read this!

Admittedly, I’m a germaphobe.  Even before COVID, I never touched an elevator button with my fingertip, always the knuckle.  

One thing I hadn’t thought about, until now, was unpacking my suitcase on top of my bed (either at a hotel or my home).  A lot of us do it because it’s more convenient than if it was on the floor.  At home, I don’t have a luggage rack and in a hotel, I often just placed the suitcase on the bed instead of taking the luggage rack out of the closet.  

But think…for a moment…everywhere you rolled that suitcase.  The airport.  City streets and sidewalks.  Across hotel lobbies and on hallway carpets.  Sufficiently grossed out?

TRAVEL TIPS – 

  1. Do NOT put your suitcase on your bed
  2. When you get home, wipe all wheels and handles down with a Clorox wipe BEFORE you put your suitcase away
