Works for Me Wednesday

My WFMW tip this week is a heads up about hotel practices. DON'T USE THE GLASSES IN YOUR ROOM! Someone sent me this link to a news clip about how they clean the glasses. Apparently, at best they wash them in the bathroom sink, and at worst they spray them with some kind of chemical and wipe them with a dirty towel you have left on your floor. Blegh. People always assume they got sick on the airplane or from eating bad food when they get sick while traveling! I suggest bringing your own glasses, or stay in cheap hotels that put out disposable plastic glasses that are sealed in plastic.

To see much more pleasant Works For Me Wednesday tips, go to Shannon's blog, Rocks in my Dryer.

P.S. Isn't her new WFMW header pretty?

Gina, this is entirely true. I have worked as a chamber maid and all this happens, and a lot worse. Also always rinse out your tea cups with boiling water. The problem is these girls are working very hard and there are time pressures so sometimes they cut corners by wiping the glasses with whatever is to hand, yes even used towels, which, however does not excuse this sort of behaviour. I could tell you some really bad stories but, because this is a nice blog, I'm not going to lol
