    I don't... :knockout: ..maybe it is a "mind clean" thing. Are you afraid of bedbugs?

    There seems to be a presumption baked into that question.

    I don't feel comfortable sleeping on filthy beds *anywhere* not just hotels. So no. Would not stay somewhere I know to be filthy. I'd rather be camping and that's saying something.

    I am not afraid of bedbugs but I would not want to have a bedbug infestation. Heck I don't like any bugs. But yeah bedbugs are perhaps one of the most noxious bugs one can have and from what I understand not fun to get rid of. So no thanks.

    And just so you know bedbugs are not confined to just filthy places. Clean places can be infested too. Just saying.:knockout:

    No, I am not a big fan of hotel beds/showers. Too germaphobic! But what can you do when traveling, right?

    i would not stay anywhere that was dirty

    disgusting and i would be causing Mary Hell about it

    Fun fact, my parents owned a motel while I was growing up. No, it did not give me nightmares. I knew how everything was cleaned. The only thing I don't feel comfortable with is mattresses because they are never firm enough. I also would not be comfortable with carpeting, but most hotels seem to have moved away from that, which is great.

    Oh boy..I have a FEAR of bedbugs...I’ve heard horror stories...I check online and will read every review of a hotel I’m staying at. I used to go to bed bug registry but their website isn’t working anymore. I just read every single review on every single site before I’ll book a hotel. I have stayed in hotels an hour away from where we were going to stay in a bedbug free hotel. There are areas that are infested with them. @missy is right that it can be a perfectly clean and expensive place and they can have them. I’m scratching myself writing this! :lol-2:

    Oh @Mamabean, I have such an awful fear of those B-word things! My husband travels all over the world, so it's a potential issue. It's never happened, thankfully. But I never let him put his suitcase on the bed, although logically, that wouldn't matter. :eek2:

    Me too @lyra! I check his hotels before he goes...He travels a lot...and I can’t check every time he goes..because it’s too often...I tell him all the time if he brings one bug home the only thing I’m saving is my jewelry roll. Everything else gets thrown away!

    I’m not afraid of bedbugs staying at my friends homes..but I bring my own pillow with me! My friends are super clean but they don’t use pillow ticking...I stripped the bed once and saw stains on the pillows..I was so grossed out..I started bringing my own pillow...They know I have pain in my neck and need a flat pillow..so they don’t know the real reason!

    Haha I travel with my own pillows too but for different reasons. In fact when we traveled to Italy (not long after 9/11) the airport screeners saw something suspicious in my carry on (tweezers) and asked me to open up my suitcase. I opened it up and the first thing they saw were 2 of my big fat pillows and they said ok close the bag and sent me on my way. Tweezers and all. LOL. I guess terrorists don't take their own pillows.:lol:

    But yeah I always travel with my pillows.

    i have dettol in a can for around home inbetween cleans but the wiped are a good idea for traveling
    i hate touching the door handles in public toilets
    once i got sick from using a handrail at the train station and then ate a bag of chips on the train
    never again will i eat with my hands without washing them
    i use this gel stuff in the car but it does taint anything you want to eat with your hands

    I’m the same..I get grossed out when I have to touch a handle or push a door open and I see grime smudges all over it. I use my elbow, jacket, wad of tissue to push or open a door..I just wash my hands really well in the public bathroom...because I don’t want to know what germs are hanging out in there. My husband and family know I’m like this...so when my son broke his leg many years ago and I had to take care of farm animals for him..my son didn’t think I could do it. He was watching the farm for a friend...I walked through muck and handled germs that were truly disgusting.The donkey, rooster, pigs and all the other critters needed me to feed them and I did. The donkey would chase me..That was fun..not..I kept hand sanitizer in the car..and would wipe the car down when I got home. I did this for six to eight weeks. I realized then that although I’m not fond of germs..I’m not clinical! :lol:

    Oh no @Daisys and Diamonds...Keep washing those germs off the knobs and handles. Do you have Airborne in your stores? I poo pooed that but a friend suggested I get it this past winter. My son and I took it all winter and we didn’t get sick once. My husband and mother had never ending colds and flu..Stay well!

    Even in excellent hotels I never put my suitcase on the floor, generally prefer to leave my stuff in the suitcase and keep it closed. I bring flip flops to wear in the room and shower and have disinfectant wipes and bleach tablets on me. So no, if a mattress is filthy, I won't sleep there. Period.

    Farm /animal germs don't scare me, though. Decades of cleaning horse stables without any second thought. I seem to have double standards :think:

    No I'm the same. Animals and their germs don't bother me. As long as we wash sufficiently after handling the animals and their feces it is fine.

    You're a wonderful momma Joanne.:kiss2:
