How clean is your hotel room? Five tips to help you stay healthy

With travel back on the agenda, we are all starting to take that long-awaited and much-needed break.

Having been so long since you took that last holiday, it can be a bit nerve-racking when it comes to keeping everything germ-free and clean.

NatraSan is here to put your mind at ease, here are 5 tips to keep your holiday, fun, relaxing, and germ-free!


How to clean your bed linen
1. Use your own linen
It will take up extra space in your luggage, but taking your own bedding and towels could give you peace of mind. This is something hotels have indicated they will be happy with, but it might be best to contact the hotel so your bed remains unmade on your arrival.

If space in the luggage remains tight (don't worry, you might have worn those extra pair of shoes, better to be safe than sorry) you can always give your bedding a quick spray with NatraSan when it has just been made. By the time you collapse into bed, it will be dry, clean, and ready for some shuteye.

2. Regularly spritz touch points
You can probably be sure the hotel will be the cleanest it’s ever been, but it’s not worth taking any chances. Regularly give touchpoints, such as light switches, door handles, and do not disturb tags, a clean. This can easily be done by giving them a quick spray of NatraSan, which destroys 99.9999% of germs on contact.

3. Go Modern
Whilst there is a certain type of romance about staying in a hotel that is hundreds of years old and is filled with furniture in keeping with the period, there will be more areas that harvest dust and allergens, as opposed to the sleek lines of a modern hotel.

We are not saying turn down that trip to the French Chateau, just be prepared to NatraSan those areas where germs might lurk!

4. Take your own slippers
Vacuuming doesn’t remove all bacteria that could be lurking in a carpet, so take some footwear to wear around your room. Ok, you don’t necessarily need to pack your big furry animal slippers (although... if there is space?), but a pair of comfy shoes or flip flops to stop bare feet touching the flooring will be fine.

5. Don’t forget the complimentary items
Like touch points, items such as the kettle, hairdryer, TV and remote control, and telephone should be regularly sprayed with NatraSan to remove any hidden germs.

NatraSan comes in 250ml and 500ml antiseptic spray bottles, as well as a handy travel buddy which is ideal to pack in your bag for a hotel stay. It can be purchased from our online shop or by calling 0800 707 6883 to place a telephone order.
