Why would someone stay in a hotel and pour a pot of boiling water into the toilet first? Today I understand the reason
In life, many friends will be because of work or travel, will choose to stay outside the hotel, but many friends in the hotel, and will have a lot of worries, especially will worry about the hotel hygiene is not good enough.
Some time ago I heard a friend say that before he went to stay in a hotel, he would boil a pot of boiling water inside the hotel room and then pour it into the toilet.
It was a small habit of his, but later found that many of his friends around him would do the same.
So why would someone pour a pot of boiling water inside the toilet first when making a hotel? Today to understand the reasoning, we also come together to see it!
- The reason for pouring boiling water inside the hotel toilet - high temperature sterilization
We all know that high temperature can kill some bacteria to a certain extent. Every guest will almost always use the hotel toilet when they stay in the hotel, which means that some bacteria will remain on top of the hotel toilet, which will also bring us certain hygiene hazards.
For example, there may be residual E. coli, salmonella and other bacteria on the top of the toilet that are invisible to the naked eye, but when we use the toilet, it is likely to get on our body and cause certain effects on our health, and even make us contract some skin diseases.
But when we go out, we can't carry germ-eliminating items with us, so boiling a pot of boiling water and pouring it inside the toilet before checking into a hotel is a good way to kill germs.
In my toilet inside pouring boiling water, we have to pour boiling water along the toilet seat, so that the high temperature can kill some bacteria left on the top of the seat, and the toilet seat ring high temperature resistance are very strong, will not be damaged.
Of course, in order to be safe, after pouring boiling water, we use the toilet when it is best to put a layer of toilet paper on top of the toilet seat or cover the disposable toilet seat, which will be more secure.
- Other items that need to be disinfected in the hotel
Although it is said that the hotel changes the towels inside the room before each guest checks in, it is difficult for us to guarantee that these towels are really cleaned.
Although the hotel will replace new towels each time after the guests leave, but the towels are recycled, are cleaned and continue to put back into the hotel room to use, if not thoroughly cleaned, then the towels will also leave some bacteria or other stains on top.
And not every guest will be kind to the hotel's belongings, either.
There are many guests who will use the hotel towels to wipe the toilet or wipe their shoes directly after staying at the hotelIn this way, the past will adopt a large number of bacteria and microorganisms, if not disinfected thoroughly, in the use of our health will cause certain effects.
So it is recommended that before you check into the hotel, you can put the towel inside boiling water to scald it and disinfect it a bit.
Of course if you are unsure, you can choose to bring your own disposable towels, face wipes or bring a small towel of your own first.
Almost every guest in the hotel will use the slippers prepared inside the hotel, in fact, disposable slippers are relatively clean and hygienic, because after each use, the hotel will also throw away the disposable slippers and will not continue to use them.
However, most hotels choose to prepare our daily slippers in the room, which are not disposable and will be kept in the room for the next guest after the previous guest has used them.
And in our bath time, certainly will not be able to wear disposable slippers, so we also need to pay attention to the hotel slippers hygiene.
If the person who wore the slippers before has foot odor, then it is very likely that we will get foot odor when we wear the slippers again, and even if there is no foot odor, people will feel less comfortable wearing the slippers that others have used, more or less.
So it is recommended that you also boil a pot of boiling water when you check in to the hotel, scalding the hotel slippers, through the high temperature scalding to adjust the slippers above the residual bacteria and stains.
Of course, if your luggage space is spacious, you can also choose to carry a simple pair of small slippers yourself.
③Hot water kettle
It has been reported that some guests use the kettle to wash their socks and even intentionally dirty the kettle when they stay in the hotel.
This will leave some bacteria and stains on the top of the kettle, which may be harmful to our health when we use it.
When you stay in a hotel, it is best to use a kettle to boil a pot of boiling water to pour before continuing to boil water to use, of course, if you want to drink, it is best to buy their own mineral water outside to drink will be safer.
When you stay out in a hotel, not only should you be concerned about your personal safety, but you also need to pay attention to the issue of hygiene.
