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?
- Do NOT put your suitcase on your bed
- When you get home, wipe all wheels and handles down with a Clorox wipe BEFORE you put your suitcase away
Where do you pack and unpack your suitcase?
